Join my TEAM! Lucky Ladies

Here are some of my most recent cards.

Simple card with lots of sponging and vintage look.

A nice card with bleaching technique and also water colored images on water color paper.  Combination of the Nature Walk stamp set and Nature's nest stamp set.
inside the card below... I used one of our die cuts so you could see the writing on the darker background.  This die is called the top note die.

This card is cased from Dawn on Dawn's stampin' thoughts and is a self standing card below it is openned and stamding up on it's own  Love the retro look.  Mine has different colors but used the same concept and bigger circles than hers.

 Here are some little mini purses I made for the craft show at the armory; they are just big enough for a small snickers and a cute poem about excuses  to eat chocolate.

Also some cute maganets made from the fun flowers die. 
 Most of them use stamp sets from our new current Occassions Mini Catalog or the new Sale a Bration stamp sets you can earn for free by buying $50 worth of  Stampin' UP ! products.  I sure do love this time of year as I can stock up on the things I need and earn sale a bration stampsets my self.  If you ever have thought about joining Stampin' UP! now is the time.  We are offering a 15% discount off the amazing demonstrator starter kits.  They normally sell for $175 and contain over $300 in merchandise  but through March you can join my team for $148.50 and Stampin' UP! also is throwing in another $50 bundle of merchansdise for you to keep.  Even if you don't sell another thing!  You will have full demonstrator benifits until June and at that time you will be required to make a $300 minimum to stay in.

My Card Class at the Community Center

This week I was able to teach SIX  (count them 6 Ladies) card making.  Our class is called Cards and Chatter and we meet every second and fourth Tuesday of the month at the Citrus Springs Community Center  between Holder and Dunnellon.  It is alot of Fun and we usually make 3 card for $10.  Normally I don't have my Camera along but this week I happened to have it along and snapped a pic of our group.  They love to chat with each other as they are stamping and assembling their cards.  I bring the materials to use and they are already cut ready to stamp and assemble.  We usually get there at 11 am and are finished usually before 1 pm.  These ladies really enjoy learning new techniques and folds while learning the art of card making.   Here are a few snaps

Visit to the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs

I have lived in Florida all my life and never visited Tarpon Springs.  My friend and bead teacher Marsha asked me to go with her to pick up her friend Terri from Massachusetts at the Airport a few weeks back.  We picked her up and went to a Stamp show in Clearwater and then had lunch in Tarpon Springs which was a new thing for me.  I had my camera along so I thought I would post some pictures to my blog for you to see.   Marsha's sister  Joan went along with and was our very great driver.
Here is one of the big boats

Some gals playing the ukeleles and singing  there were several people playing and singing for tips.
