20 Cards for $20 Workshop

Here are the pictures of the cards from the workshop held yesterday. We made two of each card. Each participant was encouraged to change it up and create their own version...and they sure did! Their cards were wonderful. I chose to stick to the pattern and instructions for the samples. There was one exception to this -- I cut a small 2x2 colonial white cardstock to add to Card #8. Otherwise, it was out of the book! In this workshop, we used Close To My Heart products. First, the workshop came from the book Wishes. I precut the Emporium Level 2 Paper Packets (one per person with lots of 12 x 12 paper left over!) and put a little bag of embellishments together for each person. Everyone was provided 20 card bases and 20 envelopes. I hope you enjoy looking. Let me know if you have any questions. Comments are always welcome. Enjoy!

Happy Furlough Friday!

Hi everyone...hope you're enjoying your Friday. Since I am furloughed, three Friday's a month, I've decided to make them productive. Also, I've decided to make them "Zero Spending Friday's". Luckily, my craft room is loaded with supplies I've hoarded and I can play 'til my hearts content.

I mentioned in another post that I'm donating cards to a women's service group soon. The project provides a "baby shower by mail" to women whose husbands are deployed in the military. I will have more details later when the club starts up again in September. I'm looking forward to becoming a member and contributing to some very worthy programs!

Here's the latest card for the donation pile. Not sure I'll post any more baby cards because frankly, I'm tired of them already (and I imagine you've seen enough as well)! LOL So, I'll probably just whip up a bunch and then spend some time on other cards.
Thanks for stopping by. Now I'm off to be productive in the pool! (grin)

Card Creations Vol 7

I'm a WINNER! I can't believe this, but I won a copy of the Card Creations Vol 7 magazine! I left a comment on and was the lucky winner! Funny, I leave comments (with or without the promise of a prize)and never check back to see if I won. Let that be a lesson to us all...GO BACK AND CHECK. I simply cannot wait to receive my copy and I'm ecstatic that I won something. Now go check out Alli's blog...and you'll see why I left a comment!
