 Love using the buttons, just a little one for the center of the flower, again using my favorite bright colors!

Jumbo roller for a fast background.  This stamp set is one of my favorites, even if I can't remember the name of it!

I like using my framelets to get a fancy mats behind the stamped images, very easy to use and it looks oh so professional!

Birthday card

My friend Teresa has a little girl and this is the card I made for her first birthday.  Love the colors!  I have several of the flower punches and it is fun to use them with the brads.  I also love this alphabet set, each letter is a different font, which I think is fun!

Swap cards received

These are cards that I received from the ladies at my monthly stamping class with Bobbie.  All of the cards are great, and it good to see everyone's work.  Not sure who made each card.
Diane made this card

Quilts today

 I saw a 'strip' quilt and thought hey that looks easy, so Billie and I checked out the instructions via the internet and I started to cut the strips.  Then you sew, sew and sew some more!   I did not buy any strips already made, I just cut my own, some were long, some were short, I was trying to not include any pink, maybe trying to make it more masculine?!  I like the way it turned out, then I had my friend machine quilt it and the finished project is awesome, a bit 'skinny' but not bad at all.

Last night was Card Night at Bobbie's (funny how I have 2 friends, well I do have more than 2, but 2 friends who are ladies, but have masculine names, Billie and Bobbie)  My friend and co-worker Diane introduced me to Bobbie and her great classes.  These 3 cards were designed by Bobbie and we made them at one of her classes in the fall of 2012.

Today is Friday and it is a Bunco night for me!  I love to play Bunco, there is a group of  16 ladies who gather for food, fun, laughter, bunco once a month.  We have an awesome time and sometimes I walk away with one of the prizes, always a bonus, but really getting together and playing is what I enjoy most.  Most of these ladies I see only once a month at bunco, it is nice to gather together to catch up on what the prior month held for each of them.
Another card made at Billies, love, love, love ORANGE and this awesome GREEN.  At Billies I like to use her punches, and buttons.
Billie has an awesome selection of words to use, as well as great punches.  I like how I used the circle border punch on the green strip as well as on the actual orange card base.

Greetings!  Tonight I am hosting a Growth Group at my house, it is a stamping Growth Group and several ladies from church will be joining me to create 2 cards.  

I used Teresa's stamp set once again and made this thank you card, I like using black or at least a dark color to layer under the pieces, it seems to make the individual pieces stand out.

Hello!  Crafting right along, this card was made at Billie's.  Billie has lots of background paper and I like to rummage thru her left overs and create a card from that.  This was fun as it was punches and little rhinestones.  And the bright colors that I love so much!

Minimum stamping, mostly punches!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!  It is now May, and I hope that the weather allows me to begin planting my garden.  We love home grown tomatoes, and I  tried my hand with radishes, onions and lettuce with great success.

This is a stamp set from my new crafting/stamping friend Teresa.  We get together once a month here at my house to make cards for a monthly card swap.  The card swap is at a Stampin' Up! demonstrators house, Bobbie, we meet once a month and Bobbie plans awesome projects for us to complete.  I invited Teresa to join me and we have a great time with 7-9 other ladies.

I stamped the images when Teresa was here, then took them to Billie's house and put it together and used her words.
