More notecards

I love making these little notecards, I just cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper in fourths and have notecards. It sounds like it's going to go very well with our next promotion "escape". I'll give you more details as that comes up. But, these are for a friend that owns a wedding boutique hotel, Playa Fiesta , in Puerto Vallarta. She loves giving cards and writes lots of notes to the brides during their stay. I thought these would be perfect! I hope she likes them. :)

Mother's Day Cards

So, I did take some photos of a couple of Mother's Day cards! I completely forgot that I did! These were for friends and family and then I made my mom and mom-in-law a set of note-cards in a box (of which I did not take a photo) and a matching Mother's Day card. We also took them out to Cafe Zorro's in Loomis. If you are ever in the area (NorCal) and want a great dinner and incredible glass of wine, this is the place to go! It was a fun night!!!

Finally a Card

I have been absolutely terrible this past week at posting cards that I have made. I haven't found much motivation to create anything much less take a photo of it AND post it! That's just way too much work! I have made some cards, mostly for Mother's Day and Thank You's for my hostesses. That's been about it since it has been pretty darn hot here (100's) this past week, which pretty much makes me just want to sit around and do nothing! I did have my class yesterday, which went really well and was alot of fun for me. :) I finally got everything back into my stampin' room (shhhhh it's the spare bedroom according to my husband) so I made a card. I was sort of feeling inspired, but not too much, so this is what I came up with.
Stamps: She's All That
Paper: CS: Regal Rose, Shimmery White
DSP: Wild Wasabi from the hostess pack
Accessories: Beachfront Ribbon, Rhinestone brads, ticket corner punch and dimensionals

My First Class and An Open Stamp Day

I am finally having my first class!!! I am so very excited and so very nervous! What if nobody shows up? I figure if nobody makes it over, I'll have some great projects for my next craft fair! I am also having an open stamp day too. So, if you have projects to work on or stamps that have never been mounted, this is the day for you! Come on over and bring your projects to work on and enjoy the day, the cost is free with the class or $5 without.

Here are the details:

When: May 18 anytime between 10 and 2, the project should take less than 2 hours.

In this project we use the Scallop Circle Punch which is one of my favorite tools. This versatile punch creates fast and effortless impact on projects of all kinds.

Other coordinating stamp sets include; Punch Pals, Wanted, Boho Backgrounds and Kind Thoughts. The Scallop Circle Punch also coordinates with the new Western Sky Designer Series Paper and the Blossoms and Basics On Board chipboard!
