Oh Happy Day!


Hi Everyone!
I am still soooo excited about my blog's new look! It's exactly what I had envisioned and the amazing Michelle Laycock sure made it happen!  Just looking at this blog and seeing all the details that went into it just makes me happy.  I hope it does for YOU too!  Don't forget about my give-away to celebrate the launching of my beautiful new blog - click HERE for details or scroll down to the previous post. 

Coffee poured and ready to work, I wandered into my hobby room this morning to find it in a bit of messy state:
 Yikes! What a mess! But so much fun...hee hee
 
Yesterday I made my brother a birthday card (my younger brother turns 40 on the 7th! holey moley).  For some reason I seem to leave the cards that have to be mailed until the very last minute and then I do a mad scramble to get them made and off to the post office.  Randy lives back in my home town of Comox, BC - and the mail from New Brunswick to British Columbia is a tad slow (our letters get to my Mother in Law in England faster than they do to Vancouver Island!).  So needless to say, everything was left out on the table, along with the remnants of other cards I'd been making recently.  I decided that before I filed my scraps away, I'd see if I could make a card using just what was in front of me.  I had some flowers left over from last month's clubs and card classes, along with some of the new Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper.  This is what I came up with:

It's amazing what you can create with those little treasures, hey?  
Stamp Set: Just Believe
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Island Indigo
Ink: Black Stazon, Early Espresso
Misc: Fun Flowers die, 1 3/8" Circle Punch (for the rose), Blossom Punch, Rhinestone,White Organza Ribbon and Hemp Twine, stampin' sponge



I've got a full day ahead of me.  Besides getting this hobby room tidied up, I also want to get my Spring Fever scrapbook done to show every one the finished product.  This class will be on April 18th and all the details are here.  In this class we'll be using the new SPRING FEVER SIMPLY SCRAPPIN' KIT - it's amazing.  This kit is loaded with embellishments, designer series paper, and 12x12 textured card stock.
The 6x6 scrapbook you'll make in this class is unbelievably cute and what could be better than stamping with friends for a couple of hours and then going home with a scrapbook ready for all your photos?  RSVP for this class is due April 6th so contact me to reserve your spot!  Here's a sneak peek at a couple of the pages:
