Post-it Posting!

I used Post-It correction tape to mask off the glossy cardstock on this card. Have a happy Saturday!

Friends Reflection

Adding a card that I made with a set from the Winter mini...I hope that this set makes the "big book." Have a super night!

Whoops...did I neglect my blog for a couple of days? Yes! I did! It was a busy week and this week looks just as crazy. When will the taxes get done? Wellllll.....

Here's the card from my workshop on Thursday. It is simple and elegant. It uses a white crayon to highlight portions of the image and then I sponged over it with the SU sponge daubers. Thanks for taking a peek!

What a workshop!

Wow! Did I have fun last night! My hostess had a super turnout!!! Way to go, Amber!!! Here's the card for the make and take...I found the original by Debbie Tompkins and CASED it. (CASE is Copy and Share Everything). Thank you Debbie and thank you, Amber for a super turnout!

The card used the three elements of the Spring Mini Bundle...the double-sided Petals paper, the Petals Jumbo wheel and the Polka Dots & Paisley stamp set. I love these three items.

Feb. Contest Entries

I can share some of my February contest entries as the winners were posted today on the SU website and I didn't win. But, maybe, I'll make the Stamper's Showcase!!!! This one was for the Absolutely Alphabet entry. I really liked how it turned out.

Today is the big fundraiser day at church/school. I'll be there until at least 5:00 pm. We also forgot to set the clocks for DST!!! Thankfully, we woke up at 6:15 or so and when I checked the DISH network clock and it didn't agree with our clock, we got up quickly! Not a good day to be an hour late!!!

Happy day!

I'm booked!

I've booked my flight to Denver to attend the SU to get into the right session when registration opens. My most awesome upline, Lisa S., has spoiled me by finding a SUPER deal on a hotel just a couple of blocks from the Convention center. I had to book my flight this morning. I was all set last night to book today anyway out of Fargo when low and behold, the flight that I had wanted last night was gone and all flights on that day from Fargo had gone up $60!!! The ones from GF were the same so even though the time is less convenient, I've saved on the cost.

Today was the final school day of Lutheran schools week. It was alumni day. We had a really good attendance from the high school students who had attended our elementary school. It was fun to look around and see how they've grown up and become respectible young adults.

Here's the name frame that I made to hang in my classroom. I had fun working on that one! It uses the Recollections paper from the Idea Book.

Thanks for looking!

It's Lutheran schools week and I am tired...imagine how my students must feel? Today was dress crazy day and Game day...we played games ALL day! The PTL served pizza (oh me? I had one piece...just the topping and a tiny bit of crust...the life of a gastric bypass patient!) It was fun but I'm looking forward to a regular week next week...other than correcting papers!

Here's another that I had featured on Stamper's Showcase. It uses a set from the Winter mini called Big Pieces and Little Pieces from the main catalog! Thanks for looking!

All Natural

I like this card that I'm sharing with you. It was also chosen for Stamper's Showcase. It uses the All Natural set and is colored/painted with the Watercolor Wonder Crayons. I tell you, I LOVE those things!!! Have a good night!

Google Reader Review and last tryout project

First of all, I just finished going through my Google Reader updates. Boy, did I save time....other than the fact that I found a wonderful tutorial through Amy Rysavy's blog! The tutorials are on Nth Degree at Creative Express. Back to topic...when I opened my account, there were 13 new updates to blogs, including my test one from yesterday. I posted that at about 8:00 pm last night. I checked immediately and it wasn't at google yet but was this morning.

The reader lists all of the sites that have updates. Click on the header of each, and you'll go to the actual post. This is important because not all in the google list show the pics with the posts so if you want to see the picture of the project posted, it's important to click.

I only went to 13 sites today instead of the 67 I have on my favorites. This will also be handy when I am away from home and I don't have my favorites list!!!

Here's the last project that I submitted for the convention display boards. I wasn't that excited about this one. The only pictures I had around were ones of Daphne. Had I had a cute little kid, this may have been a little more appealing!

Google Reader

Upon reading my MANY blogs today, I read a post by Sarah Vrolyk, infamous stamper. She took all of her stamping blogs and added them to Google Reader. I did the same and this is a test to see if I did it right...wish me luck.

BTW, Google Reader is a service that you add all of your blogs and when a new posting is up on any of them, it tells you!!! Too cool! Should save me a little time since I've become such a blog junkie!


Super Saturday

Okay, I'm continuing what has now become a four day weekend, thanks to two snow days. Next week is Lutheran Schools week at school so it'll be a busy one. Here's the last card from my convention display tryout. I have one more to share from that group. This one used the new Polka Dots & Paisley from the Spring mini catty. Have a great day!

SNOW DAY #2!!!

There won't be a snow day #3, though....tomorrow is Saturday. Maybe I can sort receipts for taxes today.....YUCK! But, I've been given the gift of time by having the day off.

This is another card I made for my convention tryout. I liked this one a lot! Thanks for looking!

Snow Day!!!

Well, for those of you who have children and are not teachers, these words probably don't ring beautiful sounds in your ears...but...I don't have children and I am a teacher so SNOW DAY is a wonderful phrase! I am planning on accomplishing a lot but will add another convention display try out card to share. Thanks for looking! Happy Snow Day!!!!!
