Thank you so much Deborah for having us over to your place, for such a fun and wonderful night :)! Thank you for the stamps that we picked out, the paper, the soap and of course the yummy muffins (can't forget those) :)! Also, I wanted to thank your friend for her treat for us...the little baby socks filled with Lavender salts that she made for us :)!! I also have to take this quick moment to say: HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOUISE :)!!!
Last night was a much needed night out for me, as I haven't been out with this bunch of gals since around Christmas time...or at least that is how it feels. We made two beautiful cards last night, and they went along with our challenge of the month theme which was "fun fold" cards...we each made a card with a different fold and then we traded cards with eachother. I wonder what next months challenge is going to be :), I think we forgot to talk about it with all the fun we were having.
The first card we made is a gift card holder inside it, and it was so easy to make,I am going to have to get the instructions from Yvonne our demo. Easy to make that is for sure, and a card that I would definitely make again and again :)!

The second card that we made was a double slider card, now I have made one of these before using the Splitcoast stampers blog...but I liked how this one turned out better than my first attempt. I think that is because for my first attempt I cut out the slots for the sliders out by hand, and this time I used the SU window punch...so much easier. LOVE this stamp set too :)!

The third card is very much like the first card, but I used the flower folder as a border for the card... and not for the whole front of the card...it turned out better than I thought it would :)!

today, just to check it out and thought I would check other people's entry's for the challenge for this month. I was surprised to see another challenge there. I decided that I would do this challenge too, what the heck eh...2 challenges in one day :D..a record for me I think :)!
The key was to use colors, so I used colors I might not usually use...here goes nothing :)! I also sort of needed a card for my son's primary teacher, just thought she could use a little something to get her through the rest of the school year :).
Have a great Day :)!
one I think. I just didn't know what to do, where to begin, or what colors to use, or layout for the card...so I went for the simple card look. Hope you all give it a try, and let me know what you thought of this challenge :)!
So what creative things are you all upto today?? I actually haven't been doing anything that exciting lately, I have decided that I am in serious need of getting out for several hours...kid free...to have some serious "me time". I haven't had that in a long time, the only alone time I have had lately is when I am asleep at night or when I go grocery shopping which in my books doesn't really count. This is the first creative thing I have done since my in laws gift for their Anniversary, lol...think I am losing my creative touch or mojo :p!
Here is a question for you all, what do you store all your different crafty markers in?? I am in serious need of something...other than what I have for my Tombow markers...starting to get Copics and SU markers.

My in laws Anniversary is coming up next week, and am in need of a few ideas for what I could get them...or what I could make for them. Any ideas??

I took two different shots of this card I made, because it was hard to see what I had done with this card. I stamped 4 butterflies, then cut all 4 of them out, and then I used tiny dimensional dots and folded 2 of the butterflies in half. Next, I put the dimensionals onto the middle fold on the 2 butterflies and then attached them to the other 2 butterflies. Pretty neat eh?? I was going to cut a circle out of the front of my card, then have these butterfly's dangle in the middle. For that I would have used all 4 butterflies...and some white thread :)! I think I will make that card this afternoon when I get back from running some errands...will post it tonight when I am done.
Give this challenge a try, it is a fun one and once you are done upload your creation onto Splitcoaststampers gallery and use the title BIC7 . Then head over to Beate's blog and let her knw you posted your challenge there or onto your blog :)!
Have a great day, and if you live where I do please don't blow away :)!
