dragonfly water colored

I have started back to school and I finally found time to post today.
This set was a hostess set in the last Stampin Up catalog I can not remember the name. I love the look of it when it is water colored. Happy Stamping

So KInd with buckle

This so kind buckle card was a big hit at my last workshop. The "priceless" stamp set worked out great. Soft sky card stock was perfect for the colors on this card. The swirls and flower were embossed with versamark ink and clear embossing powder. This is also a card I have submitted for another Bingo number at Barbs's blog.She is running a great Bingo game on her blog. She has challenged all players to make a card using the In colors from Stampin up.

Girlfriends of mine

I asked my friends that came to stamp at my house to bring a stamped card to share. I love to see what they are stamping also when we have a workshop.

They are beautiful cards.

It is always fun to see the different ways people create cards. love the way Teena used her punches.

Olaine made three cards, all different looks using the same stamp.

Nancy used some awesome designer paper as well as the her new stamp set "Its all good" from Stampin UP.

Love this card from Marji it came in the mail as a RAK (Random Act of Kindness). The saying in the card is great " getting old ain't for sissies - bette davis. I had to laugh it was just what I need on a day when I was whining about getting older. Now I feel so strong. You just got to love this great hobby.
