another card for class

I just popped in to share another card that I created for my card class that I first talked about a couple days ago. I've tried to post this several times, but my computer was having issues. But that shouldn't be a problem after Tuesday!

You can't see it very well in the photo, but I folded the wings of the butterflies so they pop up a little.


Cardstock: Sampin' Up, Peterson-Arne, Bazzill, Neenah, Die Cuts With A View

Stamps, punch and die cuts: Stampin' Up

Ink: Memento, Ranger

Staples: Tim Holtz/Advantus Corp.

Baker's twine: The Twinery

Adhesive: American Crafts

I think that's all the supplies I used.

Happy 4th of July!

card class, week one

Isn't my blog cute? Thanks Tammy! And Shabby Blogs! :) Now I just need to come up with a new name for it. Any suggestions? Maybe I'll have some sort of contest in the future if I can't think of something on my own.

My mom tended two of my nieces last week, and then Sunday was a family dinner. I'm still laughing at the things that came out of my nieces' and nephew's mouths! I will have to share them sometime.

I'm taking an online card class for the next 4 weeks, and this is my take on the first assignment:

I love the bright colors they had us use. That is white that I used. I don't know why it didn't photograph that way. I edited the picture on my laptop, since that's the computer with Photoshop Elements, but it doesn't have the internet yet, so I had to transfer it to my desktop in order to put in on this blog. Maybe one of the monitors has the color settings wrong. Hopefully it will appear ok for you.

And here's a close up of the bottom of the card so you can see how I made it scalloped:

I don't know how to do those fancy supply lists that link you to places to buy the supplies like I have seen on other blogs, so I will just tell you what I used.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up, Peterson-Arne, Neenah, Die Cuts With A View, WorldWin Papers

Mini Paperclip: Tim Holtz/Advantus Corp.

I think that's all that I used. Now wish me luck that I win a prize!

weekend plans

I'm looking forward to a fun weekend. Tomorrow, Gaston is picking me up from work at 3, and then we are headed north to pick up my cute 11-year-old niece. She is going to spend the weekend with me. She has a lot of things she wants us to do. So far we have plans to go out to eat at least 3 meals, get manicures, watch movies, play games, shop at Justice, make beaded bracelets and bake 2 kinds of cupcakes, because in her words "we rock at baking." She's funny. And cute. And I adore her. :)

What are your weekend plans?
