February Book Club

 This was our February Book Club meeting.  My daughter's, Megan and Jennifer and my mom started a book club last fall.  It has been a lot of fun. We take turns choosing the book and hosting.  When it is the hosts turn, she cooks a meal, lunch, dinner or in this case brunch!  Megan was our host in February and served a beautiful brunch.  Our book was The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.  Three of us liked it very much, one not so much.  I liked it! : )

In search of Dandelions

Spending a beautiful Sunday afternoon with family.  Taking a walk, searching for dandelions...

Saturday's Stamp A Stack

I started my new version of the Stamp-A-Stack Class on Saturday.  This month we made Thinking of You and Encouragement cards.  Every month will be a different assortment, 12 cards, 2 each of 6 designs. There will be two different sentiments each month.  You will receive a Stamp case for each group of cards for storage and easy organization.  Each case will be labeled;  Birthday cards, Get well cards, sympathy cards, etc. I will have pictures of these later.

I hope you will sign up for April's class!  It will be April 5th. This is such a great way to collect cards to have on hand for any occasion that comes up and an excellent way to store them!

Here are 3 of the cards we made Saturday.

I found this card design on pinterset.It was not a stampin' Up! card, so I converted it using our products.
Products: Just Sayin' and Happy Watercolor Stamp Sets
Word Bubbles Framelits Dies, Big Shot
Epic Day This and That DSP
The little green dots were made by punching circles with the large side of the crop-a-dile and then sticking them onto mini glue dots. They resemble candy dots!

I cased this card from Jill Hilliard.  The only thing I changed was the embossing folder.
Products: Zoo Babies and Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set
Arrows Embossing Folder
Squares Collection Framelits
Gumball Green Cardstock and Ink

I cased this card design from Krystal's Cards.  I used In Colors, changed the greeting and added a Large Rhinestone.
Products:  A Dozen Thoughts and Flower Shop Stamp Sets
Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Pansy Punch and Bird Builder Punch (used wings for the leaves)
2013-2015 In Color DSP Stack

Celebrating A Birthday

We had my son-in-law, Rion's Birthday dinner at my house Friday night. I cooked fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn on the cob, corn bread and mini peach pies.  Jennifer brought a big apple pie also.  This is the meal he requested and it was ummm...ummm good!

Aren't my little pies cute?
