It is kinda hard to see, but I used two colors of distress ink on top of one another to get a color that I thought went with the DP. I used Spun Sugar and Dried Marigold. Love this one!

Hello! Two Easter cards for this share ... mine first, then Debbie's, and then the sketch we both used. It is one of those tall and skinny card sketches. The fronts measure 3 1/2" wide by the normal 5 1/2" tall. Here they are ... enjoy!
Hello! I am in the middle of cleaning my house for family coming for Easter. I am taking a quick break to show you a card. This one I made earlier in the month " thinking" that I might need an extra Easter card to send. I ended up making about 8 of the cross ones that I taught in my class. It was a simplified version, as it was a regular fold over type card. I think I ended up making and sending out about 15 cards this year. Here is my adorable bunny card for you ... enjoy!

Hello! I have several more cards to show you but I am interrupting this daily card show to share with you a project that I will be teaching at The Crafty Scrapper at an upcoming event. They are doing this event called the Spring Carousel on Saturday April 9th. You will get 5 one hour classes and a catered lunch for just $75. That is a pretty good deal, if you ask me. I am quite excited to be one of the classes. You might remember the Valentine canvas I made, see it here, a while back for the store's design team blog. I decided changing this project to a spring theme would be perfect for this event! Here is my project ... enjoy!

Hello! Sorry I am late. Yesterday, the ladies of the church had a bake sale in two towns, one at a Walmart and one at Brookshires. I left early to help transport and set up the tables and then sit in the cold and sell. We had typical Texas, crazy weather, as one day last week it was in the 80's and that is expected next week too. But, yesterday ... 40's to 50's, and with a north wind blowing about 15 miles per hour! Really? About half way through the day, I took some of the baked goods from Walmart to Brookshires. I soon found out that if I thought it was cold at Walmart, Brookshires was ten times worse, as they sat under a overhang, in the shade, facing the north wind. COLD! Overall, we did pretty good, money wise. Still have some left, but maybe the after church crowd today will help us out!
Okay, now, on to what you came here for ... I will show you my card, Debbie's card, and the sketch we both used. Enjoy!

Hello! Did anyone notice on the side of my blog I added a logo for Verses Rubber Stamps and under it I put "design team"? Pretty cool! At the Grapevine convention back in January, Verses had a booth. I know the owner from when I had my store and actually I carried her line of stamps in my own store. Anyway, we got to talking and she said she was interested in me being a member of their design team for their website and also cards made to send to stores to help sell their product. I love sentiments stamps and with my style of using sketches, I thought this would be a perfect match. The first two cards that I will sending them, I have, to show you today. These two were also made for a requested order for a church friend. So, I made two sets of cards. My church friend loved them, hopefully Verses will like them too. Here are the two ... enjoy!

Hello! I finished my class samples and so I want to share them with you. I knew I wanted to do a fun card with the new chefs from My Favorite Things, but didn't know what else. Then I thought of all the apron cards I had seen on Pinterest and thought there is a second card idea. And then at the store, she had got in a mini Spellbinders die set of a mixer, and two utensils and I thought ... Cookin' Theme ... YES! I think all three cards came out great and I hope both you and my class ladies do too! Enjoy!
First, is the "chefs"! A couple of years ago, we did a double slider card, but it was a little bit complicated. I found a new easy, peasy version! Here is the front of the card...
