FRIENDSHIP

Good morning all!! WHEW!! This week has been a doozy between vet visits, doctor visits and everything else.....but things are starting to settle down somewhat since Kayla is starting to recover from strep and Dexter is healing nicely. I did manage to get some stamping done yesterday since I have a workshop today so I thought I would share one of the cards we are going to be doing. I am excited about this workshop because it's fifteen gals I have never met - what a great chance to meet some new friends close to home as this is the first one I have actually done in Oroville!! Most of my workshops and classes are all taught in Chico which is where I work....it is about 45 minutes away (although the drive is nothing for me anymore!). So, this will be fun!! The theme for this workshop is friendship since I was asked not to do any type of holiday cards. I used my Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and lots of the new in-colors as I just love them!! This card seems bright and cheerful to me - it makes me smile so I hope it does the same for them!! I also used one of my new embossing folders called Finial Press for the background, I just love how much they add to the card! I did stamp the butterfly twice and pop one up over the other with my dimensionals. It's easy to do this now that I have the fabulous new butterfly punch - so fun!! A simple card, but pretty I think, right?! I hope they like it! So, I am off to blog hop over coffee(I don't get to do that as much anymore!) and then get packed up and ready for my workshop, WHOOHOOO!! I will be back on Monday to share another project we are doing as well as show you the hostess gift I made for her!! Thanks for all the well wishes and for stopping by to see me, you are all THE BESTEST!!!!!!! Smooches!!!

This card reminds me of homemade lemonade popsicles. You know the kind you used to make as a kid in ice trays or in those silly little plastic cups? LOL

Very bright and cheery - I think I'm going to have to teach my son about homemade popsicles === oooh pudding pops too!!!
