kid bday card

Y'know when you pick up something cheap meaning to use it for a great project you have in mind..and then if you're like me it gets stashed and long forgotten.....welllllll here is my project - finally done. Last August when we were down in Bellingham they had such SUPER cheap prices on back to school items. I think I paid .25 cents for this pkg of crayons. Anyway I scooped up quite a few with the intent to make cards like this one I just made tonight. Its a quick way to make a bday card as you use an outline stamp set for the child to colour in themself! Include a new pkg of crayons and you're done! Neat idea eh?

Thanks for stopping by!

p.s don't forget to RSVP for my New Catalog Kick Off party which is coming up July 6th. 7 - 9pm. LOTS of retired product at amazing deals, prizes, make n' takes and food.

p.s.s I used some new daffodil delight cardstock partnered with Melon Mambo and Tempting Turqoise. Got this colour combo from my new Colour Coach. I LOVE IT!

tea holder

Here's the last of my June club projects. Its a tea bag holder or even a gift card holder as well.....I googled a real peacock and used the chalks to resemble the peacock colours.....Using the Presto Designer paper I sponged versamark over it first, then rubbed the chalks (pastels) over it till you could see the pattern come thru....
Happy Stampin'

wood sheets

Happy Summer!
Here's another project made in my June clubs. If a Father's Day sentiment wasn't needed I had others available. I am so happy the Wood Sheets made it back into the new Catalog....sometimes they are just the look that will complete a card. This layout is quite simple but for a masculin card I think that's the way to go.....the wood just adds that little touch, don't ya think?
This card is now going to my Dad for Father's Day but he's away for another week....

Staff Appreciation Luncheon

Another event is checked off the calender done! WOW only a few more days left of school!!!

As head of the Staff Appreciation committee at my girls elementary school I try to come up with unique ideas each year for the wrap up luncheon. This year for the luncheon we did Chicken Ceasar wraps. Thankfully I have a wonderful group of mom's that help out! I was in charge of the 'meat' so Chris BBQ'd around 16 chicken breasts, then I cut them up in strips and put them in my crock pot so they'd stay warm. The others mom's brought the salads, desserts, wraps, drinks and veggie platter. It went really well of which i'm thankful...always a relief when its done as I worry something might go wrong. Phew :)

I also had 3 mom's come over one day last week and we made 30 of these little holders for a lottery ticket. I've heard one teacher won $2 so I guess no one is quitting their teaching job :)

Stay tuned as I have some more posts planned!!!!

Joy Fold card

Here's one of the cards the gals in my 3 clubs made in June. I love how the Joy Fold cards open....the 'sparkle' tag holds the front flap closed. Using one of my fav colour combo's which retired - ruby red and cameo coral. Also the Presto designer paper - with both those colours sponged over. This makes the word's 'pop'.
thanks for stopping by,

I'm still around!

Are you shocked?
Yes, I"m still around...I can't believe the date of my last post! Where have the last few months gone? I'm sorry but my blog had to take a back seat as I adjusted to homeschooling my middle daughter. I pulled her out of public school mid-april. (notice the how the dates coincide...)
Anyway its been a great move for her, but has added another hat to my list of hats...

I'm excited to get back on here hope you continue to visit!

Here is a card I made tonight for Kylie's teacher. I was asked to make a card for the kiddies to sign as we're doing a group gift for her teacher. I liked a card that Angela McKay made on SCS so followed her example..just changing my DSP.

More to come,
