Even though spring is just around the corner, I found this daisyboardabella card that I hadn't posted yet and thought I'd share! I'm gonna be popping it in the mail monday for my SIL cuz she loves to go snowboarding! She also loves to stamp and make cards, so I hope she likes it!

Julie's Color Challenge

Julie posted a color combination challenge over on her blog, so I thought I'd try it out. I'm not too sure how I feel about the colors, but I really liked the way Sharon used the nestabilities over here on a card in her blog. I like the overall look of the card. Hey I used a combination I wouldn't have even thought of and isn't that the point?

Jasmine's valentine

I asked the girls if they wanted to make valentines or buy them and they all chose buying them this year! That's fine with me this year, we just sold our house and will be moving into a rental while we build a new house. I really didn't want to add 'Make Valentine's ' to the long to do list! My oldest, Jasmine did want to make a valentine for her teacher, though, so this is what she came up with. I gave her the scraps from making the samples for my class this week and this is what she came up with all on her own with no supervision. I think she did a great job, but I just *might* be a little biased!
***OOPS! I guess it would help if I added the picture!***

I taught the Great Impressions stamp of the month class this week and being february, they are mostly valentines related!

The Giraffe is my absolute favorite! I love this little guy! This is my faborite of the group:

There is a gem in the centre of the flower and the circle on top of the brown scallop circle it shrink plastic that was stamped in brown stazon and then colored with pencil crayons and shrunk in a toaster oven.

This Peek-a-boo box was made from this template by Qbee over on splitcoast.

This post-it note cover is from the pattern that Julie posted on her blog. I used golf pencils instead of pens, so I adjusted the measurements a bit.

This little treat pouch is made from a half of a transparency...5 x 8 1/2 to be exact!

The last project we made is a super simple card that was run through the cuttlebug with a square nestabilities to emboss a square in the card front. I did this one to show the ladies how the nestabilities work with the cuttlebug! Okay...I'm all 'talked'out! Have a great weekend!

What kind of Chocolate are you?

You are White Chocolate

You are White Chocolate
You are sweet, caring, and truly very innocent.
Whether your naive ways are a bit of act or not, people like to take care of you.
You are a quiet flirt, and your power is often underestimated!
That is just perfect....cuz white chocolate is my favorite!
I found this link in My Happy Place's blog...So fun!
I had a great class this week and will be posting our projects soon....maybe even tonight!

Origami Butterflies

Today the girls and I made the Origami Butterflies from Pixieshires tutorial. The girls had so much fun making them and have been running around the house flying them since (it's only started to drive me nuts!).

Here's what I did using the oregami butterfly and Papertrey stamps. I used SU!'s Perfect Plum, Old Olive, More Mustard and Really Rust ink. The colors were inspired from the printed paper, I'm surprised how much I like them together! Thanks Juliann for the great Tutorial!

Brayered Horses card

This card was supposed to be part of a class that has been put on hold for the time being, so I thought I'd share it. I love the brayered background on the glossy cardstock. The white swirls are made with the versamark resist technique. My oldest is horse crazy so she went wild when she saw this one!
