Well it is that time of the year again. Time to say good-bye to the retiring stamps. I haven't finished counting how many sets I will lose but it does happen every year. LOL The new catalogue will be several pages smaller so lot's of things need to go to make room for fresh and fabulous new stuff! The old catalogue now ends on May 31st. So you only have the next few weeks to pick up those set's that you must have. Book a party or place a customer party.
Ask me for details.

And now here's the list
It works if you copy and paste this. I couldn't get the link to work tonight. :)

It's an open and shut case, i mean card..... this is a really cool pop up self standing card. I hadn't tried it before because I thought it looked to complicated. I am a lazy stamper more than say 5 steps and you've lost me. But this was easy and well worth the effort.
It's a Birthday card for a special lady who is turning 94 today. She is an amazing example as she has just published her second book and is working on her third.
I used the prisma colour pencil technique and masking as well. My intention was to use the flirtatious paper but it is still in the package.
I plan to make more of these cute little gems.
Interested in learning to make these, book a party or a class. Let me help release your creative mojo.
Happy stampin'

Hello everybody and Happy Easter to all. We are having a beautiful day today and it is nice to have the family together for this weekend.
I just wanted to share these fun cards with you. I used the prismacolour pencils with Gamsol technique. I love colouring it brings back a simpler time.
I used the now retired paper from our Sale- a- bration promotion. I love it and will sneak it in here and there. I hate when sometimes we get such beautiful sets and they don't last to long.
But lucky for me there is always something new!!! Like I need more stuff.
The cards shown here use the centre step technique and are fun and simple to do!

Enjoy all this long weekend has to offer, I will be back to posting next week!
