Hi everyone,

Wow, what a change in the weather.  It is blowing snow outside and suppose to be real tricky driving in the morning.  I am suppose to go to a Salebration Kickoff from 10-3 tomorrow and if the roads are going to be bad, I may not venture out.  Any other weekend I would be sitting on my duff watching movies and just because I am getting my mojo back, I may have to cancel.  CRAP!!

Okay, this what I have been doing this past week.  On Tuesday, I joined my sister-in-law and her daughter for an afternoon of cardmaking.  We used the Simple Sent Everyday Elegance kit and completed about 5 of the 8 cards.  Below are pictures of how we added our own embellishments to the basic card.  It was a lot of fun and looking forward to another day of cardmaking.

My very favorite card is the one at the bottom left, with the one above it running a close second.  I can't wait to work on the Cherry Cobbler cards.

On Wednesday afternoon, I started working on the valentines for my 6 yr. old granddaughter's class. I used the SU glassine bags to put in a stick of strawberry licorice; made a topper and then attached a pencil to the outside.  Here is what the completed ones looked like.

This was very easy to do and wished Jenna could have helped as she loves making things with grandma.  Next year we will start making the valentines two weeks before Valentine's Day.

One Thursday afternoon, I made Kirsten's (age 10) valentines.  She didn't sound too happy that I was using twizzlers so I went to store and picked up several boxes of candy hearts, sorted them out, and then put into the SU bags.  I made a different topper for her's and also attached a pencil.  I was shy 4 bags so I used some very small SU bags (look like ziplock bags) and put some swizzlers (cut in half) and some of the candy hearts in the bag.  I may have time on Sunday to make each teacher a nice Valentine card for the girls to give them.  Here are the ones I made for Kirsten.

Well that is all for tonight.  I still have more cards to post but will have to share at later day.  Have a good evening and enjoy the beautiful weather wherever you are.


  1. Really like the Simple Sent Everyday Elegance kit. I have not gotten this yet but was thinking about getting it. After looking at yours I guess it will be on my next order for sure. You did a very nice job. I might have to do some serious caseing here.

  2. Very nice Lois! I love the card sets and have had them forever, but haven't yet put them together. I might just use them as part of my card lass next week to show the gals how easy they are to design. Bet my grand-nieces love the treats you did for Valentine's Day.
