Hello everyone,  I do miss everyone!  I have not done any card making since I left Mansfield so nothing to share.  Even if I had , we didnt bring our printer/scanner down with us.  Maybe after Christmas.  We havent set up internet yet.  I have to go to the club house to get on line.  I hope you all have been to the card class last week.  I would love to see some of the cards you made.  Who knows, it might get me motivated to make some.  Take care and God Bless all of you!

Another Thank You for coming to my last class at HL this year.  I will try to thnk of all of you while we are enjoying the beautiful Florida weather.  Such a good turn out last Wed.  You all make me feel so special and raise me up.  Thank You again.  As you know Mary Jo Isch and Karen are taking over for me for the winter.  I hope you will support them too!  They are both great card makers.  When we are home between  Thanksgiving and Christmas, I plan to attend the classes if at all possible.  Hope to see you then.  Take care and God Bless You!  Love Laura

Here they are!  See you tomorrow!

I am on my usual time.  Here it is Monday and I have 3 cards done and only 2 to go.  I think this has become a habit of mine.  Nothing like a challenge.

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

FINISHED  Well not really, but they are created but today will be a get all the part ready.  I am pleased.

Monday, September 17, 2012

Hi ,  I hope you enjoyed your beautiful weekend.  It was and is so pretty out, feels like fall!  I have three cards to show you, only 2 more to go.  Enjoy!

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

We had an awesome class last week,  Thank you all for coming.  Earlier today while I was thinking,  I dont  do that to often.  Why am I always late at getting my cards created and cut out  Well sometimes there is no creative juices flowing.  But today I thought,  if I made one card every day and got it cut out that same day, it would only take me 5 days to be ready.  How simple that would be!  Well here it is evening and I have yet to get one card ready.  I worked on one I started a few days ago but have a few problems to work out, like how do I do that.  I need some adhesive sheets and the directions in the box on how to use them.  Well do you think I can find the new box I have. No directions in the old box.  Maybe before I put my plan in to action I need to clean up the area again and maybe it would be helpful to put the supplies and such away from last class.  Maybe tomorrow!  Have a good evening!  May God Bless you and keep you safe!

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Well here they are.  In case you are wondering I am still working on getting things cut and whatever.  Had a few request from some to come and of course I cant say no. My problem I am running out of enough paper to make each card the same..  Some are going to vary a bit.  I hope you wont mind.  See you again tomorrow.
Hi Girls,  Occasionally when I am on my laptop and I want to post my pictures, I cant find them.  If I get downstairs sometime this evening I will try to post the last 2 cards I made.  Check back and maybe you will get to see them.  I still am not ready as I need to cut out supplies for 3 more cards.  Wish me luck!  See you tomorrow!

Monday, September 3, 2012

Hi Everyone!  I hope your Holiday Weekend was a pleasant one.  Since I hadn't posted anything you have already figured I not quite ready.  I do have 3 and I am posting them here.  Hopefully tomorrow I will have the time to post the other 2.  I hope you like them!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

As you know this is a late post!

Since I really wasn't ready for class, even at the class, I didn't get my cards posted.  For any of you who didn't get to come to class, I decided to post them anyway.  Thank you all that were able to come, I hope I didn't work you to hard.  You all did a marvelous job!

Hope your weekend was special!

We had a great weekend.  Sat. we were in Columbus to celebrate Juliet's 1st Birthday. Our daughter Kristin and her husband held a grand party at their home. A lot of their friends have small children so there was alot of little ones around.  Then today we watched my grand daughters 3 little ones while they were trying to get more moving done.  They bought their first home.  It will be great for their family and so much room and a large backyard.  I am so happy for them.  You wonder why I am sharing this with you.  You probably have already guessed.  I am not ready for my class Wed.  I will be working hard the next few days to be ready.  Will I get any of them posted, we will see.  Take care and God Bless you!

Friday, August 10, 2012

Thank You!

Thank You for coming to my card workshop.  I am so blessed  to have you and wanted to you to know I so appreciate your support.  You make my day.  I have been on the computer searching, there is so much out there to learn from.  I wish it would all stay in my head.  I do have a few ideas and I hope when you see them,  you wont disappointed that you saw them too!  Sometimes I cant remember all the neat ideas , sometimes I write them down but cant understand my own writing.  Sometimes I want to make the cards right away and dont.  So if you get to make something you have seen before and have all the excuses I have for not doing it,  I hope you dont mind doing it with me.  Thanks again for coming!  I hope to see you again soon!

This week has been a real challenge for me,  I have been trying to get my next week cards ready since we will be camping at Mohigan State Park .  Leaving tomorrow and getting back Monday afternoon.  I have 3 cards cut and ready, I hope.  The 4th needs more parts made.  The fifth is still in my head trying to get out.  I have new people coming.  Last Thurs I went to a stamp camp at the Baptist Church on Diamond Street.  They are getting together the 3rd Thurs of each month.  I met a lot of great and talented people.  It was fun.  Everyone did their own thing.  We brought stamps to share.  I hope to be able to go in Aug too!  If everyone comes next week, I should have a big afternoon class .  I hope you like the cards.  Take care and God Bless you all!  Laura

Some of July's cards for Wed.

Hi again,  I am going to try to post 3 cards we will be making at class but my site came up different and I don't see the area I click on to bring up my pictures. Hmmm!  Bear with me as I experiment abit,
Well I did it, not certain how but here are 3.  I have another card as I mentioned in a previous post that I am not certain about doing it, plus I need to create one more.  Wish me luck, I am too tired to continue tonight.  I forgot that this is still Sunday, and I have Monday & Tuesday to be ready.  I might just make it after all.  Lets see what happens tomorrow.  I do have to make an appointment to take my dog to the Vet.  He is chewing spots in his fur and has bare skin.  He will probably get a cortisone shot again and be put on predisone.  I hope your weekend went well.  Take care and God Bless you!

Here it is Saturday.  do the weeks fly by fast for you too!  I was gone for two days.  Spent two days in columbus with Jillian and Juliet.  They were ill, running fevers, congestion, cough and could not  be taken to the sitter, so I was elected.  I got home last evening around 8:30,  I left for there Wed. evening around 7pm.  Juliet is 11 months,  I held her most of the day.  I bet Mom will have a problem today.  The report today is that they both are feeling better today.  no fevers.
    If you are wondering, I wonder if Laura is ready with here cards.  You are so right, No!  I have maybe 2 done but I am not certain if I will do one of them.  So again I need to get going.  Hope you get see a picture post tomorrow.  Enjoy the weekend!  Take care and god Bless you and keep you safe.

Hi Dear Friends,  I was overwelmed yesterday with the class turn out.  Thank you all for coming.  I had 12 at the afternoon class and 8 for the evening class.  Of course I ran out of supplies and ran home between classes to  pick up what I could to get through the evening class. Of course I forgot some very important stuff.  Thank you evening girls for being so patient and nice to me.  And you who had to finish your cards at home a special thank you for understanding.   You all make me feel so good for coming to our card workshops and best of all you like coming.  I couldnt be more Blessed with such a great group of friends.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Sorry you cant see the snowman card well.  Actually this was the first card I got ready but forgot I did it.  I took a friend  to Pat Catan's  and found this adorable embossing folder.  Although I wasnt really thinking Christmas, it was so hot that day that I just had to think cool.  I think you will like him.  The rose card is stamped on vellum and water colored with dye inks.  I have yet to select a verse for the card.  the front resembles a post card so I have to figure what will go along.  I am not really ready yet, I have a lot of parts to cut out and get ready for some.  I think I will make it on time tomorrow.  See you all tomorrow!

Monday, July 9, 2012

Sorry for being so late this week.  If you are like me,  I would have been checking this site to see what was posted.  Nothing and I would be disappointed.  I do have 3 cards to post today that we will make for our  Wednesday class.  Yup, only three. Now what does that mean,  I guess we will only be making three.  Just teasing, I have got to get busy today trying to create the rest.  I do have a few ideas so maybe a light at the end of the tunnel.  Will post the other 2 as soon as I get them ready.  Hope to see you Wed!  It seems like a long time since we were together.  Maybe it is because we all have been trying to beat the heat and keep cool.

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Hi Everyone,  thanks for coming to my last workshop!  I feel that all went well and we all finished in time.  Thanks for all the good comments on the cards.  I was pleased with most of cards.  The panda still makes me smile, he is just to cute!  I haven't put anything away yet.  I am getting worse and worse at doing that.  I still have stamps to put away from the previous class.  I'm bad!  The day is slipping by and I need to get busy.  Celebrating my grandson, Billy's bithday this evening.  His birthday actually was on card class day and I forgot to call him.   Have a super weekend.  God Bless you and keep you safe.

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

This will be our 5th card

I finally came up with last card for this week.  I think the Panda is cute.  I found him in the clearance stamps at Hobby Lobby.  Reminds me of chubby me!   We are having a large afternoon group Wed.  I believe there will be 12 in the afternoon and maybe 5 in the evening.  I have got to get back to work.  I dont have everything cut of yet.  See you all Wed.  In the meantime take care and may God Bless you, Laura

Thursday, June 21, 2012

The first set of pictures, is the inside of the Pledge of Allegiance card.  since we are going to be away this weekend (Indiana),  I am trying to get done early.  Only one more to go!  Hope to see you next Wed.

Monday, June 18, 2012

I have to go back and find the how to video.  It said to use a 2 sided sticky type sheet and put a type of plastic to the back.  I guess my plastic didnt work for clinging.  I think it needs to be a thinner type of plastic sold by the yard.  I will try to find the info again and see what they suggested and get back to you.

I cant find my picture!

Well I had a card I wanted to show you but of course I cant find it.  I made my own stamp by using my Tim Holtz cutting die of the bird/birdcage.  If you take the craft foam ( at least 1/4in thick ) and run it through the Cuttlebug with you favorite image., you can make your own stamps.  I still have a few quirks to iron out and then I will be able to tell you more.  I will try to post the picture of the care I made again.  I fit doesnt show up you know I didnt find it.  I will be back soon.

Friday, June 15, 2012

Hello again!   My thanks to all of you for coming to Wednesday class.  It was great to see all of you again and great to see some of you come back.  It made my day.  I have been working in my craft room again and making a mess.  Once Tom carries up my old Kitchen table for me.  I will beable to finish putting things away that I moved. the mean time I have been checking emails and found some stamping videos to watch.      This time I did take a few notes so I could remember some of what I saw.  I will try some of them out and share them with you.  that is when I finish with putting the mess back together. Again  that depends on when Tom carries up the table for me.  Enjoy the weekend, Take care and God Bless You!

Here is 4 out of the 5 cards

I cant believe I have 4 cards ready and cut.  Just one more to go.  I hope you like them.

I Wish

I want to know how to do more with this website, but I lack the knowledge.  I thought I would start with a change of background.  I dont know if I accomplished that.  I want to thank all of you for coming.  Sorry it took us so long to get them all finished and I had to rush some of you.  I am challenged to show you something new so you dont get bored with the same oh, same oh.  In dong so it takes longer for us to get done.  I hope you enjoyed the class,  I feel we have fun and I love seeing all of you!  I will try to post some of the cards the next time.  Must close for tonight.

Love all your support!

It was great seeing all of you at class Tuesday.  For anyone not there on Tues., I had 11 attending in the afternoon and 6 in the evening.  Much more than I had planned but was able to make more of the pieces needed.  I will never tell anyone no you cant be here cause they did make the effort coming in, but I am so less stressed knowing for sure how many are coming.    You all are great and you made me feel special with your sincere welcome back greetings.  Now if I was smart,  I would start on the next class being ready. Yea, like that is going to happen.  Love you all!

I'm excited!

Hello All,  As most of you should know we are back from Florida.  We really enjoyed our winter there.  It was hard to leave and I will miss the beautiful weather, the palm trees, our flower garden, and our one tomato plant.  We bought it on a plant clearance rack at Lowes for $.33 when we got back after Christmas.  We got alot more tomatoes and there was still green ones when we left.  We told neighbors to pick them while we are gone.  I hope someone will water everything while we are gone.  Oops more important I will miss our neighbors and all the new friends we made. Now for my excitment!  Will have my first card class this year at HL.  I am hoping to see me dear friends.  Let me know if you are coming next Wed for my day or evening class.  I am trying to be ready in advance this time but it is difficult knowing how much to get ready for.  Hate to waste paper cutting more than I need.  If you cant come, I will understand.  After all I deserted you all by going to sunny Florida for the winter.  Remember I did leave you in the capable hands of Mary Jo Isch.  I know day time class  is better for alot of you but as you know with Mary Jo working all day that was all she could offer.  I dont know how she managed to be ready.  I Thank you again Mary Jo and thanks to Lynn and Karen for being there when your sister needed help.    Until I see you again, take care and God Bless All of You!

This weeks cards!

Had a great class,  there was 13 in attendance, 4 new girls.  Everyone is disappointed that I only have 1 more class, the week after next.  We will be leaving for home around April 2nd.

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Cards from my Tues. class

I had 13 sign up, but 11 showed.  Still kept me pretty busy.   Since I only hold class every other Tues., I only have 2 more classes down here.  We will be heading home before Easter.

Thursday, February 9, 2012

My other 2 cards

Well it looks like you can hardly see the one card.  It was quite a challange having a large class.  It ended up I had 15.  Almost no one has supplies.  I ask for another $1 and I provide tape, blk card and envelope.  I sure was busy.  Almost everyone is new to all of this.  I have a couple scrapebookers and a previous card maker. A couple of the girls are quick to learn and try to help.  Thank Goodness.  I do have a few who try to help clean up  Needless to say I was pretty tired at the end.  Have met alot of nice people.  So far I have 9 signed up for the next class  on the 21st    Wish me luck as I am sure there will be more.

Feb 7th class

Hi Everyone,  I sure do miss seeing all of you.  Thank everyone who has sent me cards.  Linda I used your card to inspire me, although I did make changes as to losing some  of my die cuts..  I hope you dont mind.  My class is tomorrow and this week I have 16 coming (to one class).  these are the three cards I have ready to make.  Still have 2 more to come up with.  Nothing has changed,  I am still doing things at the last minute.  Take care, God Bless you all

Hi Everyone!

I tried a couple days ago to scan cards from my recent class,  but for whatever reason wasn't able to.  Some days just dont work!  I will try again but probably not today.  Had a great class this past Tuesday.  Had 11 in attendence,  Thanks to one of my attendees who has come since I started this with no previous experience.  She is a natural.   She got to get the first group of 5 started on one card while I started a group of 6 going.  After that I could help both groups most of the time.  It seems when one person  needs you, it snowballs and several need you.  Everyone seemed pleased with the cards.  So far I only have 6 that signed up for the next class.   Some people are only here for a short time so dont get to come back.  I pray all is well with all of you.  I do wish I could bring you all here to spend time with me.  Take card and God Bless you all!

Jan Card Class

Hi, I held my first 2012 card class yesterday.  Had 4 come.  Everyone did great.  More people come by in the club house and say OH I wanted to do that but forgot about it.  I have been using all my supplies for and extra $1 fee, but I dont know about this.  Yesterday, I went there with 5 roller tapes (they were in various amounts of use)  before we got to the last card we totally ran out.  I had to run my bike home and pick up more adhesive ( like the pink type).  I am glad that we live fairly close to the club house.  I have sort of forgotten how to attach my pictures to this but hpefully it works.  Brain is going fast with all these old folks around.  Ha  Miss all of you!
