Good morning, I hope you are all doing well this morning. Here is another card we made on Monday night. I have been trying to stay consistent with my card making and I'm having more fun than ever now that I am. 
This card was the simplest card ever to make.
The Sale a Bration stamp set Vintage Verses was used and the Sycamore Street DSP
The honey comb embossing folder is in the spring mini and the doily's as well.
Card stock is Midnight muse and Whisper white
Ink is Midnight muse.
I used the Apothecary Accents framelits to cut the piece for the thanks and then the 1" circle to put on the ends of the piece. Isnt that a great idea.
the Rhinestones are the large ones in the mini as well.
Thanks for stopping by.

I got this idea from Inking Idaho blog.

beautiful earrings

Here are some earrings that my downline and friend, Gwen Landis made using the build a brads from Stampin' Up! Gwen wore them today to our trip for a massage and shopping at target in New York. We had fun except that I left home and forgot my purse so Gwen had to loan me some money till we got home.  UGH I hate when I do that. Its all because I'm not feeling well and I was groggy when I got up and left with coffee in hand. Then all day she kept making smarty pants comments about this might be in my purse or that could go in my purse if I had it. LOL. thanks Gwen for a fun time.
Anyway, here are the earrings. I dont know if you can see them all that well but they are really beautiful.
Thanks to Gwen for Sharing
Here is the link where she found the idea.
Hope you like them

Card Buffet last weekend

Last weekend we held a Card Buffet at VFW and these were my cards. I have not gotten Tammy's cards yet, I forgot to take photos of them. Here are my cards, First there is the one that came from Chat's blog. She had used retired buttons and ribbon so I changed it and used current product. 

 The bird house and the birthday one were both from leadership and I just changed the ribbon on the bird one, changed the position and the button on the birthday one. The other two came from my uplines meeting. I wasnt able to attend the meeting but she sent them to me just the same.
 She is awesome. Love you Jen Heffernan.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you at our next card buffet. Join us, they are fun.
