As I stated earlier this week, Carol hosted a workshop last weekend. Here are a couple of cards that we did there. Doilies are the rage, and so are the knotted ribbons. I decided to do this very simple card. These cards are made with the new in-colours. In the back we have Wisteria Wonder and Island Indigo. The cards in the back were embossed with White Embossing Powder and White Craft Ink. I found... Read more →

I just love these pictures that Chris took of Eve a couple of weeks ago. I thought that I would share these with you. She is 18 months old and such a Good Girl. She looks like she is trying to do a pose here. And the next one which is my favorite and shows a different side of her personality. I just love her to pieces. 'Til later, Diane Read more →

Carol hosted a Workshop today and what a great time. There was 11 of us there stamping. What can get better than that? Here is a picture of the Hostess Gift that I made and gave to Carol. Thanks again Carol. Wouldn't you know it, I forgot half of the project and couldn't demonstrate out to make it. You know that you have to forget something, even though you check your supplies once, twice and... Read more →

Well, here is another organized swap that I was in at Convention. The theme was the 12 weeks of Christmas. I love the tradition of Christmas Crackers, but I was disappointed in the store bought ones. I decided to make my own. I must tell you that the design didn't come easy. I tried many different things, including using Toilet Paper Rolls and Paper Towel rolls, but finally came up with this one. I am... Read more →
