May stampin' Club Cards

This first card is actually a gift card holder it could  be used as a card too.  This gift card holder was CASEd from Anrea walford's blog.   I changed some dimensions of the designer series paper so that I would have enough for all my club members. 

If you want directions on how to make this gift card holder/card, leave me a comment and I will send them to you.

This masculine card uses the Open Sea stamp set as well as the Nautical DSP and bakery twine, all from the Summer Mini Catalog.

I purchased a new rolling cart the other month and my daughter, Robyn who loves to put furniture together, came over to put it together for me.   Jacob, my youngest grandson wanted to help.   Here they are, hard at work...

I love this new cart and haven't even finished filling it.   Thank you Robyn and Jacob!!!

Club cards

As promised, here are the pictures of my Stampin' Club cards.    This first one is from April's Stamp Club.  It is a direct CASE from Connie's downline meeting make and take.   There are some fabulous make and takes at Connie's meetings.   Oh! and did I mention, door prizes, sales and recruiting recognition and demos and meeting stampin' friends.  Lots of inspiration and sharing going on there too.

This 2nd card is also from April's club card, I CASEd it from someone and thought I wrote the name down on my project planner, but didn't.  

This is the post it note holder that I made for my church's Mother/Daughter breakfast the day before Mother's Day.    It was a wonderful event.   The men of the church prepared quiche and bacon, the served us breakfast of quiche, bacon, fresh fruit cups and fruit filled turnovers. YUMYUM.  I made 162 of these post it note holders.!!!!   I used some retired Green Galore cardstock (I just happen to have a few packs,  my favorite color) and I used the stamp set from Sale a bration, Sweet Summer and stamped the flower and butterfly images in black staz on and colored the images using my marvelous markers.   The ribbon is a non Stampin' Up! ribbon, but cute and I had enough for all the post in note holders.

 Here they are boxed up and ready to take to the church.

I could not have finished this huge task without the help of my oldest daugther, Aimee,  friend Kim Housman and friend,  Robine Railey from church.  THANK YOU LADIES!!!

Check back tomorrow for my cards from May's Stampin' Club cards...

Updates and some Stamped Cards

WELL, where do I begin.....  hmmm.   Back in January, my sister in law, Joyce Virginia Riesett suddenly became sick and was diagnosed with Stage 4 Liver Cancer.....about the same time, a good friend of mine, Patricia Matsko, became ill, had surgery(s) and was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer......  

This was taken last summer at a Stamp a friend, Shirley Brown on the left and Patricia Matsko on the right.....Sadly, Patricia passed away on April 15th.

Here is a picture of my brother, Joe and his wife, Joyce Virginia.....Sadly, she passed away on May 2nd.  

Haven't been in the mood to stamp, or blog.   My MOJO dissappeared and hopefully will return soon.  I have had my stamp clubs this month and will post the cards tomorrow....actually later today.

Caol Valentine.....
