Hope everyone is doing well. My youngest son has the Flu but thank goodness he is doing much better this AM he was running around in the house playing so that is always a wonderful sign he on the road to getting better.
Today I will share a gift I want to give to my Midwife this weekend when I see her for my yearly appt. She is such an amazing person and wonderful friend I wanted to bring a little something to make her smile.
This is what I made for her :
I was giggling because I DID color the J with a Mellow Moss Marker but on this Pic it still looks like its just naked! LOL)
Here is the inside :
I had fun making these simple but elegant cards I took one sheet from the YUMO Pack of Taste of Textiles and cut it it into 4 squares of 6x6 and scored in the middle to make my 4 cards. I also did add Cardstock inside on one side of each card so she will be able to use the cards as she wishes. I hope she likes it . The stamp set that I used is called Dear Friend its a Level 1 Hostess Set which is really beautiful and wonderful to watercolor which is what I used.
I learned how to make this quick project from the amazing Andrea she had actually made this for the holidays as a Hot Cocoa holder but I just turned it to card holder!
I wanted to update on my Mail by Order Class and will be offering it. The price for it will be $20.00 (which includes shipping and materials and instructions on how to make your own Gift Box)
I will be posting a Button for Purchase later today on my side bar if you are interested. I want to take those of you who actually already had contacted me for more information in how to order it.
Last day to purchase will be on the 5th as I want to be able to ship the classes the week of the 7th ever
I am also in the process of making another tutorial video just had to pause in doing so since my son was sick but will have one up by the end of the weekend. I have actually gotten comments that you guys are enjoying them! HA.. really that makes me blush but I am glad you do.
I'm excited to show you what I will be doing next lets just say its about that Big Shot baby!
Well I am off as my oldest son should be home from school shortly.

I was looking about and thinking what I should use for my card when I remembered that The Sweet Always Designer paper has these colors in it! So I used it in my card.
Since I used the Sweet Always paper I decided to use my stamp set Always to match with the paper and to color the heart I just used my markers (can you tell I am loving the tri-color technique! lol)
The sentiment as well is from the set. Well I hope you are all keeping warm where you are. My friends in Canada were telling me it was something -58 I CAN NOT EVEN IMAGE! BRRR but still it is pretty cold here in NY!
Be sure to stop by tomorrow as I am going to post about my New Paper share for the DELISH new Designer Papers that are in the New Spring/Summer Catalog.
As always thank you for stopping by!

I love these blogs and visit them daily to see what they might be up to. This is what cooked up in my brain from doing so.
My first card was inspired by Heather and Angie to put these love birds together as I did. I had seen a couple of card out there with the different color streaks and had to give it a go. I like that affect (that was from Angie) the frame where I put my focus point came from Heather. She made a cute little card with that frame and I thought I would use it here as well as the edging one of my fav. techniques at that and the rest was me lol..
So you see my little flower do you love it? OH that is one of the new embosslit dies that is in the NEW Spring/Summer Stampin Up Catalog and there are 4 just as awesome!
How do I know because I got my box of Catalogs yesterday! AhHHHHHHH.. lol.. If you are in my Congo Line Hostess Group you got your email that I am mailing them out Tomorrow!
I hope I inspired you to Create,Release and SMILE :)
Thank you as always for stopping by have a wonderful afternoon!

Did my post title make you say HUH??? lol..
well I looked at this little mouse from Happy Heart Day and he looks like he has something to tell and I imaged that would be the title of his story! lol
Any hoot using this stamp set was part of my challenge with my Awesome and wonderful Friend Suzanne that I told you about yesterday. We had to use this set as everyone seems to have forgotten it even though its only on the dormant list and not retired . So if you have this set take it out and give it some love, don't have it? AND WHY NOT well just let me know and we will get it on its way right away so you can make some cute creations too.
So what did I do with my Challenge well I started out just making one card and I thought hey way not make these Isaac's Kindergarten Valentine Day cards and so I started and OH MY GOSH what date is today its only the 10th (Happy Bday Bro!) and I am half way done with one of my boys Valentine day cards! YEAHHH for Challenges.
Ok , Ok enough you must be saying Where are these cards..
Here is a part of the group of cards. (HA did you notice the first card is missing the hearts.. OPPS)
Here is a single card (sorry about the blurry image I have to recharge my camera)
Ink: Old Olive,Not Quite Navy,Basic Black,Rose Red,Sahara Sand
Stamps: Happy Heart Day
Cardstock: Whisper White,Real Red

This is what we had to work with this week :
Wednesday, January 7, 2009
So One of my New Year Resolutions is to scrapbook again and I thought a wonderful way to give me that push was to form a group of 5 gals(including myself) in which each month I would be able to create 2 Layouts which could be used for a 12x12 or 8x8 Layout and then on the side give 2 other sketches to create cards.(the Kits brings allot of material so you will have extra left over to use for extra layouts and cards each month)
Are you like me who have so many pictures that you have taken and had vowed to scrapbook them and now instead of 2-3 pictures you have more then 100! (I know I do)
So here is my idea for $25.00(before shipping and handling) a mth for the next 5 mths 4 ladies plus myself will get a Simply Scrappin Kit plus an embellishment Which will include our very own Scrapbook Blog where I will post our layouts and samples and where we will be able share our creations as well PLUS if you join me each of us will be able to be have a turn at being Hostess Queen for a month which would give you the chance at getting Free Stampin Up Merchandise and a min. of a Level One Hostess set from the NEW Spring/Summer Catalog!
If you would like to put those pictures into beautiful Layouts and be able to cherish your memories then join me! Please contact me @ email@example.com before the 20th of Jan. So I can place our order on the 20th. Our First Kit of what I have I Know about the New Catalog I chose our first kit will be centered around Journaling (that is my hint) Our Scrapbook Club will run From Feb until June 2009.
I gave myself another 30 min. Challenge and this time I decided not to use a card but I did a scrapbook page!
*sorry I covered the journaling that's for my Sassy's eyes when she gets older*
Not bad for 30 mins. Right! So I hope you will join me as we put to paper our stories of all those beautiful moments we captured already in pictures!
As always I thank you for stopping by!
