Party with the Party Owls!

I found this darling card on Darlene DeVries blog complete with video on how she created it...  I'm going to come up with a version of my own and perhaps have at my August Stamp-a-Stack.... on the 24th for those of you who are keeping track....

Special Fold Owls

Special Fold Owls

The card base is 5 1/2″ x 12″ scored it at 2″, 4″, 8″, and 10″, so the final folded card is 5 1/2″ x 4″. The winged owls fly up and the owl in the middle stays on the branch when you open it.

Watch the video to see how she put it all together.


Now wasn't that a hoot!!!

Cute & Colorful Baby Cards

These are just too much fun!....they bring back soooo many memories of the boys when they were babies ..... they had toys exactly like these stacking rings and xylophone....

You just can't help but smile!!!

Nikki Spencer created these awesome cards using the  Stampin-Up word window punch on both and the 1-3/4" & 3/4" circle punches, the greeting is from Friendly Phrases and the colours are Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Real Red, Whisper White & Basic Black inks, along with card stock ink colors for sponging.

Brownie in a Mug!

Perfect way to end the week... with Chocolate!!!

What do you need besides a mug?????

The only change I suggest would be to use Chocolate Ice Cream too....
why on earth would you want to go and spoil it 
with something "healthy" like strawberry ice cream??

Corona Card Contest Continues!

As promised.. here's the Card's from the Corona Card Contest... many of the gals put their's in the clear plastic envelopes, which was really sweet.... but not so much for photos... causes glare so sorry some are harder to see than others....  all in random order... fyi the little green stickies on each are the numbering system used for the contest... sorry I didn't dare remove them for fear of annihilation by the creators.... these guys are serious!

Guess who's card this is:

Yep... Wanda's!! Do you recognize the second panel on the card....
 she used the masking technique she learned at my June SAS..... love it! 
Here she is with the winning card.. and her $75 SU Gift Certificate she won!!!

And here's pic of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners with Kathy....

Way to go Wanda!!!!
