    Second October Girl’s Night card.

    Second October Girl’s Night So in keeping with the first card, here. The second October Girl’s Night card is all about the DSP. Well, and always Birthdays. Do you have fall birthdays that you need cards for?? Here is a fun idea. And really you could use this card for a thinking of you or hello card too. I wanted to get up close on this one. The bigger background layer is different foils, no color. The little strip is where the color comes in. That has the Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. Add in the oak leaf punch for a bit more color. You do not want to dismiss…

    October Girl’s Night, the first card.

    October Girl’s Night On the first Friday of each month, you can come and make some birthday cards. October Girl’s Night was no exception. We crafted, talked and laughed too! This was the first of two cards that the girls made. We always have two designs and they made two of each design. I saw this layout somewhere and knew that I had to try it. To simple?? I think the technique that I added kept the ladies on their toes. The Country Home stamp set has the beautiful water jug. But where in the heck did I get that sentiment?? Well, I made it. You might want the Stamparatus…

    Best Year Bundle is all Plaid. This is the second share from Girl’s Night, earlier this month. This large plaid image is easy cut up and you can use the parts.

    Zebras and Happy Birthday. I am falling in love with these cuties. The Zebras and Happy Birthday sentiment are just a lot of fun!

You can find this set in either the Beginner Catalog or the Annual Catalog. have fun with it, right… Which color would you try first?? hummmm How about a small reminder… When using the Craft ink it does take longer for it to dry.…

    Thursday morning…. Joe is off to work and I can actually sleep in! The house should be relatively quiet, right?? Apparently NOT!! Mooch woke me up snoring in my ear. geezz, I know that I snore, but holy cow. I can not fix his snoring. Their feathers are coming in… Joe told me the other day… “So, Amazon dropped off their legs today?” It truly is amazing how quick these babies grow. As you can see from the top of this photo, the tail feathers are starting to come in. They are still very quiet. Except once… Joe and I were at the kitchen table and heard some loud chirps.…

    March Girls Night idea

    Set Mash Up! Using the Inspiring Iris stamp set (149268) and the Flourish Dies (141478) to create this card. The idea came to me because of the pattern in the stamp set. That pattern is sooo close I decided to try it together. I would say it was a WINNER! How about you? Then ladies decided that this card should be in all different colors!! LOVE! However, I need to point out that the “background” or the “grass” is actually the background for the Iris stem!! To me it looked like a cattail. What do you think?? You really will want to join us next month. I made chocolate chip…
