Look What I Did Yesterday!


Can you believe these cards? And I did them. Of course with the help of Michelle Zindorf. A friend of mine, (Hey D) told me to check out the class with Michelle. Michelle is well know as the gal who does beautiful cards using a brayer. I drove an hour and a half to Sunnyvale, CA to attend her class. It was so worth it! We also got to do a bonus card front, I need to finish it before I can show you. This class was amazing. If you ever get the chance to take a class from Michelle, do it! She came all the way from Ohio. Now I want to take her advance class. I hear that one is the bomb too. So I will keep my fingers crossed that she will be back next year with more classes at The Cranberry Hill Mercantile in Sunnyvale. You can see more of Michelle’s beautiful work on her blog.

Dogs Got Sprayed by a Skunk!

Yesterday morning (4am) my husband let my dogs out to go potty and they got sprayed by a skunk. Poor Jeremy (brown dog) got it square in the face. Couldn’t even open his eyes. So we sprayed off his head in the shower. Didn’t really want to bath them at 4am. Cassie (tan dog) got a little too. So I slept on the couch for a while then got up and gave them each a bath. Got most of the skunk smell off the dogs, boy that Dawn dish soap is the best. But now my house smells gross. Luckily the weather was nice (in the low 80’s) and I had the windows open and all my candles burning. 

Holiday Stamp-A-Stack


Here are the two other cards we did last Sunday.  The first one has a Kiwi Kiss base, with the Holiday Treasures DSP, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White.  We used Season of Joy, stamped in Riding Hood Red. You can’t see it in the photo, but I stamped the 3 flowers on the bottom with Riding Hood Red as well. Finished off the stamped piece with some Riding Hood Red satin ribbon. I forgot to mention that we used the scallop edge punch on a piece of Chocolate Chip (goes under the DSP)& Riding Hood Red. Added some gel pen dots in each of the scallops.

On the second card the only stamping we did was the sentiment from Heard from the Heart in Craft Whisper White. The snowflakes are cut with the Sizzix Bigz dies, one in Brushed Silver and the other in Ballet Blue, finished it off with a Riding Hood Red Little Felt Flurries found in the Holiday Mini, and a Clear rhinestone from the Pretties Kit. The finished size of the card is 5 1/4″ square in Night of Navy.
