Let's get to summer! Hi All! A lot has happened since my last blog (when was that?). Family is so important to me, and my husband is probably the most important of all. He is finally done with all of his cancer stuff, and we celebrated his last radiation treatment in mid-April. Now with prayers, we won't worry about it any longer. I managed to hold my monthly Craftin' Gals Sunday Gatherings despite the uproar...it was a very important thing to maintain my friendship with many wonderful ladies. We met February 24th and did our Spring of our Four Season Cards (idea from Patti Bennett) using the new (then) Painted Seasons bundle. We also did a purple lily card. Here is the group shot we took. We didn't seem to take pictures of our food for which we are famous for! I believe this is the time we had homemade Vegetable Soup! YUM! On March 24th we did an Easter Card and decorated Styrofoam Eggs for Easter. Using Fabled Friends for both, my egg idea was inspired by Christi Wroe! She does such darling little things, that I tried very hard to make my sample as cute as hers. The gals had a blast using bits of lace, the bunny stamp and blends, flowers from my stash and sequins and such to make some very sweet eggs. Here are some photos and this time we got some great food pics! (HA!) Nee even got some pictures of my Easter decorations...thanks Nee! Then, April 21st, we held yet another Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering! Same decorations still up since it was just the week after Easter...shhh, they are STILL up! Ha! This time we had a mini tea with tea sandwiches, salads and a fabulous Greek hors d' oeuvre! It was to die for. We did a card camp with only 4 cards, but it was all I could manage at the time. My black and white Thank You card was inspired by Kylie Page, the Varied Vases card was CASED from someone but no name on the picture, the Tropical Card was inspired or CASED...
Stamping and Saving! July has it all! Happy July Everyone! Can you believe that the year is half over? Man-O-Man, what is going on? My only solace is we must be having a lot of fun! I know that I am, but still, I wish it would slow down! There are so many things to do and even planning your day out can be hard...we need a few more hours in the day! So, June 23rd I held my Monthly Craftin' Gals Sunday Gathering. I introduced the new catalog and displayed several sample cards, the paper packs that I used, and any coordinating Card Stock and Stampin' Blends that I used. The ladies were impressed and the outcome of that launch has been great! Here are the pictures of my samples: As you can see, the first card and the last two cards show the insides. I left the others blank for now. We had 2 Make N' Take cards also...here they are...I CASE'd them from someone - wrote the name of her down on a post it and low and behold, it apparently got tossed. Anyway, if you recognize these as yours, I want to THANK YOU, as the ladies absolutely loved them!!! Last but not least, here are my lovely group of ladies and some pictures of our work in progress.
