A cute Bird Day Card

Lately I've been super busy, with Jeanne being gone, training Thomas plus working on my classes. I had a bit of a chance to work on a simple card which personally speaking I think came out cute. I did a reverse mask technique.

Masking is a technique where you stamp your image onto your cardstock. Then stamp it again onto a post it note paper. Then you cut out the image, place it over your original, then stamp over the piece using other images. Reverse masking is when you use the negative space around your post it note image rather than the image itself!

Stamp Club-Tues. July 22nd, 7pm-9pm

Stamp Club is meeting tonight to help make as many cards as we can within the 2 hour period. We will be donating all the cards made to a local nursing home so I'm hoping we can make plenty.
I actually had a great time designing these cards, it was nice to just sit and create. All those who participate will walk away with a set of these cards as well. Just a thank you for coming out and lending a hand.
Now of course the colors may change because we will be using cardstock and paper that I have in my own stash, but the design layouts will be what you see here!
Take care folks and I hope to see a few of you tonight!

Make N' Take Mayhem

Well this week of Make N' Takes has been fabulous. It's been great to see new faces along with the old. Now we do still have a few kits left of the Make N' Takes and they will be priced, ready for sale on Tuesday, July 8th. Hard to believe it's already July, I mean where has the year gone! Below are the pictures of the Make N' Takes from Tuesday and Wednesday.

Today is the last day of the $1 Make N' Takes so if you haven't dropped by be sure and try to come and see us!
OK, so on a more personal note, we've recently had a new addition to our little family. Her name is Sydney, Rob named her, and she was a rescue and a surprise. A friend brought her over to the shop and of course being an animal lover, once I saw her I knew we were going to keep her. Rob was a little surprised to say the least, but by the time I got her home, he had given her her name, set up her living quarters and was ready to hold her! The best DH a woman could ask for. So here are a few pics of our new little treasure!
