Every Once In A While…

So… every once in a while I surprise MYSELF and manage to create something ‘crafty’ by HAND that I actually like!  LOL!  (I am much more at home on the computer… wahahaha!)  I have friends who are patiently teaching me how to USE the cool gear you can buy at a craft store… and make fun stuff!

Check out these cute cards I made last night ::: (all thanks to Terri!  THANK YOU TERRI!  You are the card queen!  Woohoo!)  I can hardly believe that I actually used scissors, glue dots, stamps, markers, brads, ribbon, and embossing powder!!! LOL!  Hooray!

Cards

Click on the image to check them out a bit closer up… but I think they look pretty decent!  (Are you proud of me Bunny??? LOL!  I know that you are fantastic at making cards!  Maybe one day I’ll be up to par with ya!  hee hee hee…)  They are all birthday cards… and thanks to Terri’s creative juices, I have four differently themed handmade birthday cards now!  Yay me!  LOL!  The one on the right will be PERFECT for my father in law… he’s a carpenter!  (oh.. and btw… the photo mask I used on the pic above is by Kim B.)

While getting together with my friends, I also managed to stuff my face FULL of all kinds of fattening YUMMY desserts!  I had a lot of fun… even if I do end up gaining ten pounds… ha ha ha!  Sometimes ya just gotta indulge eh?

I wanted to pop on here today and remind you that TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF KIM BROEDELET’S 50% OFF STOREWIDE SALE!!!!  Make sure you take a few minutes to rummage through her FANTASTIC scrap store and snag up some of her wonderful gear.

AND… to give ya a bit more of a ‘taste’ of what you’ll be getting when you buy her amazing grab bag… I put together a group of brag book pages (couldn’t help myself… I know… I’m addicted…LOL!) using the kit I gave out yesterday!  The kit (and pages) were created with just a bit of the fantastic stuff inside the bag.  And hey… we need to CELEBRATE Kim’s 2-year DSO anniversary with ‘presents’ right???? So bring on the freebies…

I guess I end up making brag book pages so much since I actually USE them a lot!  Hee hee…  Hope you’ve all had a great week… and are planning a FUN weekend!  As for my household… we will be cheering on the Blazers in their playoff game… woohoo!  Cross your fingers for us…

Don’t forget to take advantage of Kim’s sale (LAST DAY TODAY) and also to take advantage of the amazing price on her latest CU grab bag!

Hi Beth.. isn't it nice to get the scissors and glue out occasionally!
tyou have made a lovely variety there, it is handy to make a few at the same time,then you have some spare if you need one in a hurry!

Look at your cards,
You talented greeter,
I've been in stores,
and seen none neater,
than these you've crafted
by your own hand,
why you'll have them clamour,
you'll be in demand!

Its addictive. Watch out! I visit my local thrift etc and come home with all sorts of ribbons etc. Just lovely!

Thanks for your beautiful BB's and your blog, Beth.
