I was blurffing this morning and came across this Paperbag challenge on a blog called "Papermonkey.org"...thought it sounded like it was a lot of fun to do. I wanted to create this really neat flower accordian card, so I used a paper bag that one would use for a brown bag lunch and also used my scalloped circle largest Nestability to create my cards accordian style card's base.
Hurry on over to "Much Ado About Nothing" Blog candy giveaway as she is celebrating 50, 000 hits on her blog....WOW! Take a look at these goodies, don't think you want to miss out :)!

I needed a card for a older friend, their birthday is today but they apparently were all partied out from their open house they had yesterday. I brought their card to church with me this morning, but they weren't there so they will have to wait and get it the next time I see them :)! I used a picture stamp again, think I really like using these stamps :)!

Okay, so as I said earlier that I submitted 3 cards for the Stampsmith DT call and was on a card making kick today :)! This card isn't one of the one's I submitted, not to worry :p! With the cards I did submit though, I tried out a new style/kind of stamp for me...I used picture stamps and let me tell you I had a lot of fun using them. The other thing that is different is that I used those prima flowers that EVERYONE has been using since they came out, but I just wasn't ever a huge fan of them. So, again I thought I would step outside my comfort zone and use them on some cards that I made today :D!
I started creating cards today, and couldn't stop which is good because I wanted to get back into trying to seriously make a card a day. Anyways, I submitted 3 cards for a DT call for the Stampsmith and let me tell you I stepped WAY outside my box with creating these 3 cards...I really enjoyed it :)! Once I finished making those cards for the DT call, I wanted to make another card using one of my Ketto stamps that I haven't used yet...I know *GASP*!

So I am now working hard to finish 110 wedding invites for a good friend of mine, however last night I ran into a bit trouble. Why you ask?? There are small panels on the sides of the invites, she wanted to put her wedding date one side and a beautiful poem on the otherside.

I found this great new card, I cased it over at Vicky's blog and I had a lot of fun making it :)! So the first picture of my card that I took, is of the adorable stamp from Stampendous and it is of a park bench with some trees. I watercolored in the sky and the green grass, with: markers, an acrylic block and my watercoloring brush. I used Archival black ink to stamp my image on to the watercolor paper. The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment is a different seperate stamp by A Muse.

Wow, I think we had 9 people attend our transition meeting for my middle child who will be starting school in the fall: We had our Early Interventionist, our Speech Therapist, 2 teachers from the preschool he attends, the principal, 2 Learning center teachers, another 2 ladies from the Schoolboard plus myself. It went really well, and are going to be working hard before school starts with school visits every couple of weeks just to check it out etc. Plus, they will be providing TONS of social stories etc. to use for him to ready him for school :)!
Please hurry on over to Bev's blog, because she is celebrating a blogaversary and is giving away some Nesties and other great treats that you don't want to miss out on.

Last night Julie invited us over to her place to have a crafty night, just to be crafty and work on some projects that we otherwise wouldn't be able to work on (some of us have little helping hands). In the end it was just Val and myself there with Julie, but that is okay we still had fun and I actually was able to make 2 cards while I was there...not sold on my second card I made though...isn't sitting right.

Here is the card that I created for my in laws (sadly it isn't a great picture of the card), can't wait to give it to them tomorrow :)!! I cased this card from Shannan Teubner's blog, the colors of my card look way better in person...not too sure what happened with this picture :(!
I had friends a few weeks ago get engaged, I just have been sick and also hadn't seen them at church the past couple of weeks. I am now getting to make a card for them, that I can hopefully give them tomorrow at church :)! I LOVE this new SU stamp set that I used to create this card called "Thoughts and Prayers". I cased this card from Silke Ladlow (Our Creative Corner blog), and this is what I created using her card for inspiration.
Yesterday, I found out on Facebook that a good friend of mine was having a Bday and so I just HAD to make her a Birthday card for her. She is an amazing person, and has helped us in many ways with questions or advice or just supporting us regarding what is going on with our middle son (possibly even our youngest now too). Thank you Jane for all the help, it is greatly appreciated and HAPPY BIRTHDAY :)!
Here is a little card that I made for my lil nephew who came to visit my in laws for Easter, and so I thought I should get him a little Easter treat. So I got him this cool stacking cup toy, and boy did he like it :)! It was great seeing you guys, look forward to seeing you for a longer visit the next time you come down.

We did 3 projects in all last night, I did one and Yvonne created 2 for us to do last night at our monthly crafty night get together. Here is the first project that Yvonne did with us, and you can find the tutorial for it over at the Splitcoaststampers forum (sorry I don't remember the name of this project for you to look up, but am sure once I post this one of my gals will let me know). I had fun making this project, gorgeous patterned SU paper too :)!
