Bird Cards

I've had a pretty busy weekend.  I taught a class at the stamp store in Mooresville Saturday morning.  We had 9 gals - a lot of new faces.  The class was a little challenging but we got through it!  After class, Marianne and I had lunch at Friendly's and then drove to Charlotte.  We had gotten a deal through Groupon a couple of months ago to a scrapbook store and had not used our $$.  Well, the store was a little bit of a disappointment.  It was mostly a stationary store where you can order invitations of every kind.  They did have some Bazzil paper and other scrapbook paper and a few accessories.  Marianne got a good deal on a guillatine cutter.  When we left there, the people in the shop directed us to another scrapbook store that was just a couple of miles down the road.  It was much better with stamps and scrapbook supplies plus they offer classes. 

Today I did my least favorite job .... cleaning house!  Ugh!  Two of my college friends are coming to visit tomorrow.  We are planning on going out for lunch and then do a little shopping.  Where they live, there is not a lot of shopping places so we will be headed to the mall.

We are also babysitting Sammy, mom's cat again.  Mom and Angela have gone to Pigeon Forge (I think that is where) for a couple of days.  Unfortunately, they forgot to bring us any litter!  I am trying out shredded paper tonight - we'll see!!

The class I taught on Saturday was a Northwoods stamp class with a lot of embossing, glitter and watercoloring.  So, when I got home, I decided to do a couple of cards myself of birds.  Here they are: 

I colored a couple of other ones but haven't made them into cards yet.

Monday mailers for May plus a BD card

I have a few card shares for you.  These are cards I mailed out before I left NC.

This is the Monday Mailer I sent.  I used the die cut notecard and embossed it with a Big Shot embossing folder.  The paper behind the flower (die cut) is Pink Flamingo DSP and is on the Last Chance List.  The flower in the center is from Tropical Party (in the Summer Mini).  I made a Cameo Coral backing for the card using the Corner Punch and Scallop Punch.

This is a birthday card I made using some retired DSP.  The stamp is from Party Hearty (I think - I don't have my catty with me!).  The arrow punch (My Way punch) is being RETIRED and is on the Last Chance List.

This is a birthday card I mailed to my friend, Margaret's husband.  This is a Northwood stamp.  I will be teaching a class at Stampers Alley in a couple of weeks using this stamp and several other water/nature scenes similar to this one.
