Lots to share....
Hello friends, and Happy Thursday!
I have a lot to show today, beginning with a card that my friend Shirley and I made yesterday after watching a video on Stamp TV. To see Shirley's card, check out her blog! As there are SO many photos, I'm keeping the verbage to a minimum, so if you want to know anything, ask away!
This uses the Stampendous "Narcissus" stamp. Beautiful isn't it? And, Oh My! That Amuse yellow dot CS is perfect! I've become a huge fan of their CS. It's just the right thickness to work with, and looks so pretty.
Next, we created another card fashioned after a video on Stamp TV. It features the Stately Flowers 2 Stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger that I guest designed for a few weeks ago.....
The sample in the video was done in greens and dark colors, but I wanted to try some pink!
Next up, are the gift bag sets that the ladies created in my workshop at the YMCA Women's Wellness Weekend event at Trout Lodge last Saturday. Every single set was different - we used a ginormous paper pack from K & Company that had such beautiful prints. The morning workshop was sort of shabby chic, and the afternoon had fun with Easter/Spring colors.
Last, I made up some diaper shaped favors, some candy bar favors, and some Thank you cards for a lady in town who is co-hosting a baby shower this month. This darling image is from Just Some Lines, and the sentiment is Hampton Arts. Again, Amuse CS was used for everything. The favors were pretty simple, and I didn't even take photos (sorry!), but here are the cards, and the little box that I made for them...
In closing, I am asking for your thoughts, well wishes, and prayers if you are one that prays...
Our wonderful new son-in-law had to leave Colorado this week on his third deployment. Of course, we pretty much wanted to tie him up and keep him 'stateside', but that could not be.... It looks like it will probably be several months, at best. If you are interested in putting Nick on your card ministry, please get in touch with me, and I'll pass on his mailing address.
Prayers are needed for our dear daughter, as well, as the bright spot in her days is on assignment elsewhere. Please keep the newlyweds in your thoughts, as well as Nick's parents, who must be devastated that he's had to go again, for the third time. Thanks!
I'm entering the Narcissus card here:

Have a great day - I think I'm almost caught up on visiting all of you! Will be back to see what you've been up to tonight. Hugs and blessings,
