My Christmas Card Workshop ~ Perfect Day



I'm sooo glad I started working on this workshop in September, I'm really pleased with the results. All sets turned out great. I had a great turn out 20 ladies attended this workshop. They worked very hard on completing two of their favorite sets, the most popular set was Notebook ~ Shining Star. The second most popular was Aspen ~ All Decked Out.

Next year I might simply my workshop a little, 20 cards in one day is a little much, especially with all the cutting involved.

This first set of 10 cards is made with the same paper, since the B&T sheets from CTMH are double sided you get two vary different looks from the same sheet of paper.

Supplies used for the first set:
Papers: Perfect Day ~ front side
Cardstock: Tulip & Cocoa
Papers: Perfect Day ~ back side
Cardstock: Juniper & Cocoa
Stamp set: Evengreen
Inks: Juniper & Cocoa
Embellishments: Cocoa ribbons, Natural Twill

Quick Halloween Card

Just playing around with my new stamp set " Creepy Cobwebs" from CTMH. I has going to teach this to my group of seniors at the retirement home but with the purchase of the new house and the cleaning up of my home, time just got away from me. I simply used some papers I had around and pre-made cards from Micheals, it's a 5x7 card.

Halloween was cut a little short this year but we'll go it right next year!!!

Calendar Page ~ October/November





OMG!!!! My life is under going major changes, like people say: "Change is good!" It's just happened way too fast. It all started on October 19th, a Real Estate Person knocked on our door and simply asked: " Would you like to sell your home?" and to that I said: " You need to find me one first."

Well, she did!!!!! I remember telling my husband it's just three houses, as if we're going to like one of them. We did, this house is great, I'll have room to teach my workshop right at home.

The last 3 weeks have been crazy, talking to lawyers, bankers, contractors etc.. We had one week to stage our home and put it up for sell. Oh! yeah! and replace the roof, and paint and and.... It's funny how we live with imperfection but when selling your home everything needs to be done.

We managed to celebrate Halloween with the girls... My scrapbooking room has never looked so clean. Makes it hard to work on projects.
