Amazing weather and fun cards

I am so sorry that I have not posted any photos of my cards this week.  It seems the doohickey thingy that I put my SDS card into and then plug into my computer as up and walked away all by itself!!  So after taking the photos, I have no way of getting them up onto my blog.

You will just have to take my word for it that I have both made and seen some really sweet cards this week. (that is until I can locate my doohickey and upload the photos.  We had card night this week and the cards were all awesome.  Everyone has their own style of stamping and I for one love to make other's cards because they are usually ideas I would not have on my own.  So it is another way of getting my "repertoire" of cards increased.

I have also been sewing this past week.  At church we are having a sewing class once a week for a month to help us get back into sewing and to learn new techniques, etc.  I am starting with curtains for my bedroom.  I am recycling some cloth that is discontinued swatches from a home decorating store.  I sewed them together like patchwork and am sewing tabs at the top for the rod to slip through.  It is very expensive tapistry-type fabric and will be wonderful in my bedroom when finished. 

I also created a cute little baby outfit out of a onesie.  I put 2 ruffled lengths like a skirt at the bottom of the onsie as well as a ribbon band along the waistline.  then I made a cute ribbon rose for the shoulder.  It is for my new granddaughter Penelope.  She is granddaughter #3 born to son #2 and wife a few weeks ago.  We are going to meet Penelope and see son #2 get two master's degrees mid May in Illinois.  Looking forward to that.

I also recycled some interesting textured wallpaper that looks like bamboo placemats for some cards this past week.  They came out exactly how I wanted them to.  I used the single stamp " Blossom " and some colors I don't use very often - Cajun Craze and Wild Wasabi. Hopefully I can post the photos soon.

Have a great weekend and if your weather is warm and full of springtime, get out and enjoy it.  I sure will here in Texas.

Inky fingers to y'all.

  1. Sounds like you are busy. I am just responding to your question to a comment you left on my bunny card. I found out it is an image from Angels Landing, because I forgot and had to ask someone. Blessings Hilde
