Happy "Hump Day"

I'm way to old to wish my life away but I tend to celebrate hump day!!! LOL. Today I'm posting just some simple cards that I made and sent to family for Valentines Day. I used the Fiskars heart squeeze with what I call the ruffle around it. It was in my bag of goodies from my FiskaFrenzy from Rebecca. I have used that little punch a ton. I can't wait to get my hands on some of the new punches. Lilly and I are going to Cave City KY. to a Fiskars crop next week and I'm gearing up already. I don't really do well at crops coz I tend to socialize. Now those of you that know me I know you find that hard to believe!!! LOL..We are going to have several classes/make and takes so I'm really excited already. Okay so I'm gonna work on some layouts and get ready for my cricut class tomorrow night...Have a good Thursday everyone.....

Valentine Projects

Hopefully this week I can post a couple of my cards and projects that I have worked on for Valentines day. Even though I didn't get my mantle decorated I'm still putting a few things up. Kelly Jo put this project on the Fiskateer lead blog and it really caught my eye. I think she used larger pics and not quiet as many embellies but the jest is the same!!! I thought it would be good to put on my desk at work to cheer it up alittle!!! It is just made out of chipboard the size I used was 4 x 6 1/2 and covered it with my wonderful Valentine goodies that my friend Rebecca sent me from Cloud Nine and Fiskars. I used a piece of glitter felt and just cut a heart and used some netting and a couple of heart stick pins. The other different embellie is one that Lisa Pace had on her blog sometime ago and it is made from create paper....just plain ole create paper like when I was a kid that I used to decorate with all the time....I ran a running stitch on one edge with embordiary thread and pulled and that made the bunch effect. I then used stickles on the edges....I really enjoyed making this little project....thanks for visiting...

Cricut update

Well since it is almost time to have my next cricut class @ Sassy's I will share last month's page...I just love Ms.Bettye's cricut class as I learn something new each and every time. I did learn this time that it would have been much easier to have had the expression to do my owls with as my friends Lilly and Marsha told me. They both offered use of their's but me and the baby bug made it through!! LOL...The owls were 3 different cuts and I won't tell you how many times it took me!!! LOL Anyway I used Roger and Chubba on the beach in Naples Florida for this layout "Who's the Cutest"..I'll post my class this week soon!! Thanks for visiting....
