May Class- Anytime Cards

 This is the first card class for May... anytime cards!

This is a small class: four anytime cards.

As always, I have sentiment options for each card, but it's a fun, versatile set that will guarantee you have a card for that special occasion.

The one card says "happy birthday" but there are several other options you can use if you don't want a birthday card
This class will be offered on Friday May 10th at 4:00 or Saturday May 11th at 10:00 am.  If these dates don't work for you and you'd like to do the class on the weekend of the 3rd or 4th, let me know.  We can make it work!

The price is $10.00 for the four cards and envelopes.

Please RSVP by  May 8th to give me enough time to have all the materials ready for you.

And stay tuned. There is a second class coming: it's all about the birthdays... 8 birthday cards for men and women.  I know you are going to love it!

Black and White Polka Dots

 In the effort to relocate my mojo, I decided to use the scraps of this flocked black and white polka dot paper.  I L.O.V.E. it!

I checked out some of my favorite blogs, and Fab Friday has a great sketch challenge this week that allowed me to use the paper and also the new brads that I picked up.

I turned the sketch on its side, and I am seriously in love wit the way these birthday cards turned out!
 I love everything about how this card turned out!

Check out the ribbon, the brads, the layers of black and white.
This one is a little more simple (no ribbon), but I attached that top layer with the brads in the wrong spot, and I could not move it.  There are no mistakes in my studio.  I turned that little "oops" into a "oohhh!"  I love the elegant simplicity.

I guess I am just full of love today!

Thanks for looking!

Color Challenge Mother's Day Card

I have completely neglected my blog... poor little blog!  I haven't really done many challenges... no, I haven't really done much card making at all recently. My weeks have gotten so packed with other things.  I have to get everything squeezed into the weekends, and I have just not been feeling any creativity at all!

This weekend, I wanted to get back into the studio and be productive.  My mojo is still missing, but I went to all the pictures I've saved and I started CASEing.
 I started working by going to my favorite challenge blog, The Friday Mashup.  

They had a color challenge this week of Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum, and Wisteria Wonder.  The second part of the challenge is to mail or deliver the card to someone special (and that will happen... on Mother's Day).  Or we can mash-it-up and do both.

I often make two cards when I am making one (to increase my production).  I also often make little changes.  In these cards, I made big changes.  I switched colors for each card completely.

I used Papillion Potpourri on this card and the butterfly punches on the one below.  This card has rhinestone bling; the one below has pearls.
Once again, big thanks to the Friday Mashup blog for the inspiration.  It was greatly needed!

Thanks for looking!
