Happy Holidays

The holidays are fast approaching. I have been extremely busy with getting all things finished and ready. Finally its almost here and soon I'll be back to business again. I am hoping to post more often, I know I can't keep you as an audience if I dont post regularly. Time will slow down enough for me to post more often right after the holidays.
Remember we have the Wreath class coming up and then I have leadership so those are exciting posts that we are going to share, then I will be starting other classes, events and clubs all over again.
Have a wonderful Holiday season and I'll be back in a few days to chat more.
Stay safe.

P.S. I almost forgot that on the 24th I will be drawing the next Simply Scored Winner and we will see who the winner is then, I will come back to post that so be sure to come and see if its you......

Winner of the Next Simply Scored

Do you remember that I do a drawing every month on the 24th for the Simply Scored,
Well, it has come and gone for Nov. 24th. It was busy and I just had time to draw. I kept track of all the orders carefully and placed all the tickets in a bowl and drew one name out for this months winner.
This months winner is.
Congratulations to Allyssa and thank you everyone for your participation and Good luck with Next month's Drawing. I already have quite a few entries for next time.
Best of luck

Cards from most recent events

This was a gift card holder that I made from the new Stocking Die. Using Four the Holidays Stamp set and the Snow Burst Embossing Folder.
Next we have another gift card holder using the top note die and the stocking punch with Silver glimmer paper and Frostwood lodge DSP.
THis next one is using the Red and the silver Glimmer Paper and the ornament punch with Hand Penned Holidays Stamp set.
This one is using Winter Post stamp set. Soft Suede card stock and Four the Holidays Stamp set. Tulip Embossing folder and 1 1/4' square punch.
Keep in mind that some of these I borrowed and tweaked or even kept the same if I really liked them as is. The 2 gift cards were my own idea but heck those were easy, Stampin Up created the dies and I just created the cards. It was that easy. You can do it to. Come and try it.
This last card was created at my upline meeting Jen Heffernan made this as her make n take, I didnt have the same DSP she had so I used a different color and it still came out as cute.

most recent card buffet

My cards for the buffet on Oct. 9 were the same as world card making day cards but Mindy's cards are here, and she did one ornament.
Sorry but I cant figure out how to get them going the right direction and I'm too tired right now to delete and correct it.
Then I also took some photos of everyone at work. We had quite the group, it was actually a good time. Thank you everyone that attended.

World Card Making Day Card Buffet

Today was our card buffet at the Hinesburg School it was so fun. I hope all that came enjoyed it. These were the cards we made. Come join us next time. We have one on Oct. 9th at Friendlys at 12:30 and again on Oct. 23rd at Friendlys at noon. Friendlys is the one by Costco.
Anyway, here are the photos.......Remember, These cards are all cased from someone else but I save so many cards from other sources that I dont remember who they belong to, If anyone knows who I would love to give them the credit. Thanks for looking. If I make one myself I will be sure to tell you so, otherwise, they are someone else's creation. Copying is mostly all I have time for. They have mostly been tweaked to our liking but its the thought that its someone else's creation that matters to them.

Class to go

Gwen And I put together a class to go using the stamp set Christmas Lodge and the Frostwood lodge DSP, Our main idea was to use every stamp and all of 6 designs of the paper and we successfully did so. we are going to offer similar classes as often as time allows but for starters this is our first one, it took us awhile but its done. THese are our own creations so I hope to hear that you like them. 
 Here are the details of what you get......
2 of each cards, cut scored and punched including ribbon, dimensionals and stamps The only thing we are not supplying is the ink but we will tell you the colors so you can get them.
The price of the class is as follows,
For the set including wood mount stamps $44.00
For the set including Clear mount stamps $36.00
If you have the stamp set and would like the card kits then that will be $15.00. If you do the math you are getting a good deal on the stamp sets since we are not even charging shipping and tax this time around. These will be hand delivered to you. However if you live too far away we will ship them to you at cost. We will have to tell you how much it is after we get the product and weigh it.
IF you are interested in any of the sets, you can email me at and then drop a check in the mail. We will need prepay for this as it is alot of work. We are closing this order on Sept. 30th so dont hesitate. Let us know.
Betty and Gwen.

Christmas Card buffet from last Sunday

Hello again, Just wanted to pop on real quick to show you the cards we made at our last christmas card buffet. It was lots of fun and we have more to come. This first card I already had posted but thought I'd post them all together.  This one was one of my cards. I found it somewhere and tweaked it, sorry dont remember where I found it so I can't give credit where credit is due. Just know that I appreciate it.
 This next one was actually a card from the holiday section in the main catalog and I tweaked it quite a bit to make it my own. I love how it came out. I sold alot of them so others must have liked it also.
 This card I also got from another person, Darn I wish I knew who, I do like to give credit but can't remember because when I'm saving them I dont remember who or where they came from. I did tweak this one too but not by much. Color definitely and placing of ribbon.
 This one was one of Sharlene's and the ornament is actually 3 dimensional and very cute. The picture doesnt do it justice. I dont know who she got any of hers from either so I will apologize to them now but thanks for the ideas.
 I think this one was her own creation, she used foam for the snowflake and it was lovely. The glimmer brad in the center just added the bling to match the glimmer paper.
 I love love love this card, This too was Sharlene found and tweaked it a little. Just might have to make some for my holiday cards this year.
 Another one of Sharlenes, Love the dazzling gems on the tree, picture doesnt show them well
 Another fun one, Not sure where she got this but I love it.
 This one As soon as I saw it I wanted to make it. I did it almost exactly like the original creator did. Thats how much I liked it. It was sooooo easy too.
 Last but not least my peace on earth one that I copied from Robin Merriman and tweked her idea just a little. Hugs Robin. Thanks for sharing.
Our next buffet is in Hinesburg at the Hinesburg Community School at 12:30 on October 1st and we will be making an assortment of cards. Details will go out via email soon so watch your email. This is National Card Making Day so come and join us and celebrate this fun day.
Hugs Everyone.
P.S. Be sure to keep coming back I have some more ideas coming up soon and some new ways to earn free goodies on my blog.
Gwen and I have been working on a class to go and are very excited to have some of our OWN creations that we will be doing for this one. We are meeting tomorrow night to finishe up the last card and the details. We are going to try to do one either every month or every other month depending on our designing time.
Off to bed now. Good night

I just wanted to post that I'm having trouble with my email. They had me shut off again for sending too many at once, UGH. I have to switch email company. So, now I have limited access until tomorrow, My stored addresses are not all in there so if you are interested in attending either event, please email me and let me know. I have one this Saturday at Friendlys in colchester by costco and another one next Saturday the 27th both are at noon and if you didnt get the email just let me know I'll resend it to you.
Both events are card buffets with different cards and with Different consultants doing it with me.
When I do get a new email set up I will send out an email to you all from my new email address.
Thanks for your patience.
