Irene is here



Well, Irene has arrived and she has already brought water into Jack's Creek. For those that don't know, that's where it floods teh easiest in New Bern.

Hi everyone!

I doubt anyone even reads this anymore, but here's a new project I just finished!

This book was covered using Pink Flamingo paper.  The only thing that is NOT Stampin Up is the flower....  The stamp set is Jumble Alphabet.

True Friend cards

For my mother's birthday, I made her a pack of these.  She had commented that she liked the color combo on something else I had made, so I went with that :)

This is Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Rub Red, and Chocolate Chip.  For the "flowers" I used the Rock-n-Roll technique :)  The patterned paper is retired.

More cards

OK, let's try to get some things posted.... It's been about 2 months since I posted anything creative!  YIKES!

So, here's a card I made.
Cute right?  Blush Blossom, Pale Plum, and Sage Shadow.  The stamp set is One of a Kind.

Technique cards

OK, the next 4 cards will be ones I created for my Technique class on Jan 30.  This first one is using the Crayon Resist technique.
The colors are Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, and Chocolate Chip.  I sponged the Pretty in Pink on the Glossy White paper.  The stamp sets are Priceless and Cuddles & Tickles (retired).  I also used the Sweet Feet wheel (retired).  I did change all of the retired out for my class though :)

Snow....

If that's what you want to call this!  LOL  It started as I was taking Emma to school - around 7:45am and ended shortly after I took this pic - 8am!  LOL

Don't you SEE the accumulation?!?  OK, let me show you!  LOL  Squinch your eyes and look at the BASE of the bench legs (where it attaches to the deck).  NOW do you see it?  LOL  That was IT!  But if you look at the first pic, you can see it was coming down pretty hard!  Oh well, maybe another day (year! LOL)

Yikes!

No real crafty posts for the WHOLE month of February!  Sorry about that!  I'll try to post regularly about SOMETHING.... How's that work?  I plan to focus more on scrapbooking this month, but I'll try to take pics and post those too :)  Hey, I know!  I'll post the Stampin' Up updates you need to know here!  If you're a customer, please let me know that you are reading!  You can post anonymously.... just add your first name to the message, so I know who it is :)

I made this card for my father-in-law's birthday.  I took it down to show Michael and let him sign it.... Do you know WHERE I found it last night?  Take a guess....  Michael brought it BACK UPSTAIRS to my craft room!  LOL  A lot of good it did to make it!  His birthday was LAST week!

The colors are Perfect Plum, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Close to Cocoa, and Whisper White. I used the Misting technique on the Heartfelt Thanks flower.  The sentiment is from Elegant Cheer.
