For my granddaughter Cooper's 10th birthday I made her a chocolate candy cake.  Another idea from my favorite site Pinterest....I NAILED IT!

To celebrate special days I like to make a little something something for the Book Club ladies. For Easter they get chocolate bunnies.  Thanks Christine for your help.

Retreat Project

Christine and I went on a ladycation and besides reading, eating, drinking, laughing and figuring out the meaning of life, we did a little art project, creating collages of book pages and then painting over them.  They turned out so cool!

I have a friend who really appreciates getting a box of homemade birthday cards for the holidays.  So I got to work rediscovering stamps I hadn't used for a long time, using washi tape, and coming up with ideas.  I even made a few cards to keep.  Once I got in the swing of it the time flew by and I relaxed letting my mind drift from the routines of the day instead tapping into the creative.   I had forgotten how much fun stamping can be.

Marcia brought her new SU pumpkin stamp, washi tape, patterns and ideas for a delightful day of Halloween card making.

 Like how Marcia used washi tape on these two cards.

 The braided cut work on this card was very easy to do using the pattern that Marcia brought.
These are Marcia's cards, she was cranking them out!

On my card I used the braided pattern too but added ribbon.

I embossed the web pattern and once again did the braiding inserting a contrasting color behind it.

Thanks Marcia for coming out to stamp.

Last Sunday Barry and Jerome hosted an Inky Fingers' craft afternoon.   I unfortunately missed it
however, Christine and Dawn sent me pictures of the whimsical cards they made.  ADORABLE!

Marcia made 75 wedding invitations for her son's upcoming nuptials in Hawaii -a beautiful labor of love.

Congratulations to Angela, Thomas and their families.
