Card Party

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 2:42 pm

Had fun last night with the girls.  We had another cardmaking party.  Thank you to Sarah for hosting it at your church and helping me set-up.  Thank you everyone for all the yummy snacks and for helping clean-up. 

Here are some of the cards that we crafted…

One of my favorites…yes, more brown, red and orange.  The patterned paper is from Scenic Route.  The stamp is from a new Hero Arts set (new for me anyhow) and has already made it into my “use all the time” baskets. 

Love the frames and all the different sayings.

Love this card too.  Love pink, green and black together.  Patterned Papers are from Luxe and Pinecone Press. 

Here we go again with the browns.  Patterned paper is from Daisy Bucket Designs .  The stamp used is from a “Stampin Up” set which I use all the time.  It’s from 2006 so I’m guessing it’s retired (sorry, I don’t know the name of the set).  I know they offer similar type sets.

It’s nice to have one set that you can use for all occasions.

Of course we had to throw in some Jillibean Soup stuff as well.  I know I’ve posted this before…it’s one of my favorites (simple and cute).  Added the flowers and button this time around.

Thanks for looking!!


Not a good way to start your Saturday morning…

Yep, pulled over this morning on the way to gymnastics. 

Not a good way to start the morning. 

Speeding and not wearing my seatbelt. 

I wear my seatbelt 99.9% of the time, but we left in a hurry and it’s the one thing I forgot to do. 

Warning for the speeding and ticket for the seatbelt.  😦

BTW…hubby thinks I’m a “fruitcake” for taking a photo of the police vehicle.
