Blogging by Quantity

Sorry gang - this will be another winded blog posting. Not blogging as often as I would like - but I guess the plus side of it means that I'm actually crafting quite a bit!

This is a card I made for my boss who went on a very well deserved vacation to Hawaii. This is a Wiper Card - the picture really doesn't do it justice - but it's a really fun card to make! The sentitment 'pop's up when you open the card.

This card I made for my friend's little girl who just turned four and is very into Tinkerbell and all her Fairy friends. This was the technique that Merlie was using and I really love this - I seem to want to use it all the time! Same with the glitter Love it!

That same friend's parents also just celebrated their 40th Wedding Annivesary! Which of course is the Ruby Anniversary so I have fun using Red in this Card. I wasn't too sure how it would turn out - but again - I liked it more the next day! I'm a little disappointed in how the flowers turned out - they almost look like poinsettas!!
My Cousin and her husband also celebrated their 20th Wedding annivesray this month and this was the card I made for them. We went out for dinner to Ruth's Chris Steak House and I think that's becoming one of my favorite restaurants!! The meals are delish and even if you don't have room - you gotta have dessert! I can't recommend just one because they are all so amazing!! And again - used the stencil and the glitter! Merlie - you've got me really addicted!
And finally - the last picture to post on the blog....a friend from knows I make cards and has a seen a couple of them and suggested that I make a few for our annual Red Cross Silent Auction Fund Raiser we do at work. This made me very nervous - as it's really putting myself out there and I'm not at all that comfortable with the thought of it - but took in a deep breath and said why not. It's for a very good cause. So I decided I would do three box sets. So I did 4 birthday cards, 4 thinking of you cards and 4 Christmas Cards. And as an added bonus I also made 8 bows. 4 to match the birthday card colors and 4 to match the Christmas card colors. The cards are pretty much all the same style with color and label variations. And again - used the stencil technique. I really like the way this turned out - still really nervous about this. The auction isn't until November 19th - so I still have a few weeks to stew over the idea of my projects being out there! But - you don't ever get anywhere without taking the first step. Don't know if I really have any where to go - but at least I'm taking a first step!
Again - I apologize for the long windedness of this post and I promise to have an update on the Ugly card shortly!
Thanks for stoppin' by!
