New Cards

I made this card for my secret sister.  I belong to the Divine Secret Sisters group at Splitcoasters.

This is a card I made for my cousin who just had foot surgery.

Computer Issues

Hello everyone.  I just wanted to let you all know that my computer hard drive crashed.  My son was kind enough to give me a processor that he has but it is slower than a snail.  But, hey, it works.  So, just wanted to let everyone know that I have some new cards to post, but this tower is so old that I can't plug my card from my camera into it to download my pics so I'm going to have to do it at work.  I will get something up soon.

I am trying to decide between a new desk computer or a laptop so I will take any and all suggestions and experiences if you want to share.  Thanks.

House Mouse and Male Birthday Card

I made these card for my workshop last week.  The birthday card was a special request.

Wow, doesn't this look relaxing?  I love this stamp.  I had to use it when I saw the designer paper with lemons.
Perfect paper for this card.

I don't know about the rest of you but I find it hard to make 
cool male cards.  I guess I really am a girly girl cause I like pink
purple and bling!  Oh well, considering I think this one turned 
out okay.  Diana - this one was for you.  I have several kits 
left if you want to pick one up.

Pop Up Card

I have never made a pop up card.  However, I had a request from one of my class participants so this is my version of a pop up card.

Here is an easel card we will be making in my Monday night class.

I'm Back from Dallas

It was a great conference and I learned a lot but I am so very glad to be home. I left on 7/26 and returned home the evening of 7/31.  Long week.  I stayed at the Marriott Legend in Plano, Texas where the conference was held.  Beautiful hotel!  Plano is a quaint little town.  The hotel was right next to the square where there were all kinds of shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, we did not have a lot of time to shop as the conference was an all day event and there were receptions in the evening; however, we had one night free and we took advantage of it.  It was blazing hot however!  We ate at a great steakhouse on the 28th which just happened to be my birthday so that was a very nice treat!  The conference actually ended on Saturday afternoon and we planned on staying over and flying home on Sunday.  Therefore, we did have Saturday afternoon and evening free.  We went to the mall.  All I can say is 3 stories, unbelievable and no, we didn't make it through the whole thing.  It even had a hockey rink.  It was amazing!  We were exhausted by the time we got back to the room so we ordered room service and watched a movie.  It was great!

Again, glad I am back.  I have a workshop to prepare for so I will be posting some cards later in the week.
