July Hostess Club/Technique Class

Monday nights class was all about Top Note magic. We covered three techniques, but that doesn't even put a dent in what you can do with this handy dandy little guy. We also used some of the new in colors. At first I was not sure of these colors, I thought they were so bold and bright, but after creating with them...well, all I can say is they certainly have grown on me.
We made three make-n-takes.

This card was made out of Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and then Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo CS. We colored the image from the Razzle Dazzle set with the new in color markers. Tied it up with the new Crushed Curry polka-dot ribbon.

I have been wanting to make one of these cute little purses. I just love the color on this one. We used Rich Razzleberry CS and then Patterns Designer Series Paper in Rich Razzleberry. We also used the jumbo eyelets with the crop-a-dile. Easy-peasy! How cute!!!

For the last card we took 1 inch little squares from the Razzleberry Lemonde DSP and glued them down on white CS and then ran it through using the Top Note Die. It was neat to see every one's cards, cause no two cards where alike. I just love my little quilt, I think it turned out fabulous.

We ended the night with yummy fruit pizza and three great projects. I can't wait to make some more purses, I just think they are the bomb diggety dog.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

July Church Cards

These are the cards that we made at Tuesday night card class. It had been a couple of months again since I went, so it was fun to see familiar faces and make some awesome cards. Thanks ladies for the fun and festivities. Have a terrific Tuesday!

Happy 4th of July

I accomplished my first 5k marathon today. I entered the 31st Annual Firecracker Footrace, in my hometown. Two of my good friends joined me. I mainly walked, but I did jog a little to pass a few folks. What a great feeling to get out and try something new. I hope to make this a yearly tradition and I think several other people do as well. I overheard someone say that there was at least 600 people signed up. Wow! What a great response, and better yet - money received benefits our high school track and cross country programs.

After the race I headed over to Huntersville to go tubing. We drifted down the Crow Wing River which starts at 11th Crow Wing Lake and meanders 90 miles to the Mississippi River.

Tubing is such a popular activity on this part of the river. I really enjoy my time relaxing and taking in all the scenery. The picture above shows tons of people and I'm glad to say that this only happens on/or around the fourth of July.

I had a great 4th and I hope you did as well.
