Have you ever played along with Stamping Ground - What's on your workdesk? This is a first for me. I apologize ahead of time...it's a bit of a mess. I was going to de-clutter before posting the photo, but how true would that have been. So, here's what I'm working on and as my friend, Carolyn would say....it is what it is....
I'm trying to work on Easter cards for my March class. I'm also trying to put together a Valentine for my honey....(I think since I told him I gave him the same card 2 years in a row, he might remember last year's card)...so, this year I'm trying to come up with something very different and I'm using a little scare crow girl...Or at least I'm trying to. If it works out...I'll share it. If not...he may get the same card again this year.... :-0
Tonight is Karen's card class at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique....so you know where I'll be!
Off I go for now....Later!

I'm very happy with this second attempt. I did like my first effort, but it was very flat looking. While I was sleeping (where I get many ideas), I thought about using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder to emboss the base of the card....The folder I used is actually a Christmas design, but since the design is so small, I don't think it's really recognized as Christmas (ok...so now that I told everyone it will be!) Of course I used a Spellbinder die. I'm beginning to think I couldn't make a card without at least one of them!

I loved every minute of spending time with my grandkids and my kids, but there is something very wonderful about getting back to normal and that includes making cards with and for friends.
Tomorrow is going to be spent with friends at PSB....I ALWAYS look forward to the laughs and creations that come from time spent together.

My Valentine card turned out much to my liking....I love the colors red/white and black and this card has all three. Of course the Spellbinder heart die is used, along with Sizzix Flowers 3D, Cuttlebug embossing folder, and you can't see it, but Martha's lattice heart border is on the inside. Add paper doilies, some glitter and bling and you've got my Valentine's Day card.
I just checked out the Mojo Monday Challenge 174. I think this card comes pretty close to the layout. The parts are all there, they are just in a bit of different order or shape. Love the Mojo Monday Challenges.....
Tomorrow I'll post the second card for the February Class. Until tomorrow.....have a great week!
