Lotus and Peonies Birthday

 Here's another flower card, it's a Peonie (idea from Valita) Made using the Blossom Petal Builder punch.
I love flowers and punches. I was at Valita's Designs checking out her utube videos and wanted to make this Lotus Flower. She is incredibly talented and shares that talent freely. If you get a chance you should go check out her blog:     Any way, here's my Lotus Flower card

Another Christmas Card

I haven't decided on this card for my stamp-a-stack but thought it turned out nice. I used Snow Swirled and Word Play

Christmas Stamp-A-Stack

Here's a look at the first of 3 designs for my Christmas in July stamp-a-stack. It's simple to make and I think quite cute. I used the Jolliest Time of the Year set. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.

Successful Sale

We had quite a busy day on both Friday and Sunday. I am so thankful to the Puyallup community for coming out and supporting us. We had one item returned to the front door but the customer never came inside. We would have liked to have refunded the $10.00 she spent on the cat tower. It turned out that a kitty had urinated on it making it unusable. We sold our auction items and everything that was left went to the Goodwill. Thanks again for your support, we'll see you next year in June!

Technique workshop

I will be hosting a technique workshop June 12th from 4:00 to 5:30. You'll have 2 different techniques  for $10.00. These are very easy techniques that you will want to do on your own. Remember, there will be an instruction sheet with a place to attach a sample of the technique and a sheet protector to put them in. You will need to register and pay by Friday the 10th, I do accept paypal. Here are pictures of the cards we'll be doing for each technique. These could easily be Fathers Day cards. They are definitely masculine.
                                            This first one is Faux Metal
                                              This one is Faux Mother of Pearl
