Yesterday was so rewarding; it was back over to the Leander Senior Center to make some 3x3 thank you cards with the seniors!  Wow we had such a group, it was so much larger than the first time!  I told the ladies they would be using their own creative juices, I had some samples, lots of paper, punches etc.  Alot of the ladies weren't quite sure what to do, where to start, but after the first card, they went to town.  All I can say is, they are very creative!!  
Here are some pictures of the ladies and their cards:

Lots of stories, lots of fun!
The one thing they kept asking me, when are you coming back?  
love those ladies !!
Most of all....THANK YOU Melissa for all your help !

Delightful Challenge - Very Blingy

The Delightful Challenge this week is Very Blingy!  
I decided to try out Wendy's skate svg.  I believe I really am liking this ice skate card!
Come check out the challenge:
I used some blue eyelets to lace up the boot part and some Stampin' Up! white sweater trim ribbon and of course silver glitter paper for the skate part.
I also added some glitter on the boot part, this picture makes it look like white dots !

LIM - Anniversary

I haven't entered a card in the "Less is More" challenge in quite awhile.  So I thought I'd better get to it!   You can find their challenge here:

NAC #24

This weeks Nacho Average challenge is to use the following colors:
Here is my entry:
I embossed the night of navy with lacy brocade (its hard to see how pretty it is in this picture)  and I also embossed the bashful blue floral framelit with the polka dots.  In the center, I just had to use the vintage faceted button on top of the silver glimmer floral framelet with a large pearl in the button!  I also added smaller pearls on the tips of the bashful blue flower.

SVGCuts Ornaments

Todays project with Allison was making SVGCuts ornaments from the Christmas Ornaments kit:
If we were putting up a tree this year, these guys would be on it!  So, I guess I'll have to take them to my daughters house to put on her tree!

Xmas mugs

and so, I made more mugs from Treasure Box Designs:
This time I used the snowman that comes with the mug and I didn't forget the candy cane!  Taking these over to my friends house tomorrow, I know she'll love them!

Made this mug from Treasure Box Design:
I covered the cherry cobbler mug with fabric to give it some texture.
Then I tried to follow the center piece on the ornament from the cover page on the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog for the center of my mug.  Added a few pearls around the edge of the mug, tied cherry cobbler and white sweater ribbon on the handle and voila !!
What is missing from this picture is the red candy cane!  oops, I took the picture before I put the candy cane in!  At least I remember the hot chocolate!!
