Stampin' Up party = $$ spent

I don't have any pics yet, but I had my Stampin' Up party today. Carrie did a great job as demonstrator, you can tell by the amount of $$ I spent! Of course Jessica, as usual, helped me out with my choices. Hmmm, maybe that's a bad thing...

I'll post pics as soon as I can!

What do you think?

Here's a card I made last night... What do you think? I used the "burnished velvet" technique to add bling and finished it off with matching stickles. Stamp by Memory Box.

On another note............. Bumper cards are back! Here's the one I received last time. I LOVE it (and it came with bonus stamps, a very unexpected gift!) Check it out if you'd like to join.

More pics.....

I've been sick for the last 4 days, BUT, I was able to get some cards made (between naps!). To raise money for my ride, I decided to sell some cards. My sister, who lives in New Zealand, has been so supportive of my fundraising that she asked me to send some to her and she'd help sell! Here's what I got done.....

Pretty impressive eh? Maybe I should get sick more often! I have a couple other designs I'm thinking of so we'll see what happens.

Fundraising event for "The Ride" (and pics!)

I've gotten some flack recently from certain people (you know who you are!) for not posting any new card pics for a while, well, you can leave me alone for a bit, here they are!

I've been busy training for The Ride to Conquer Cancer and was thinking of ways to raise donations. I've decided one way is to sell cards. I'm trying to make "easy" ones that I can mass produce. Here is a sample of what I've come up with....

I'll be selling them $3.00 each or 4 for $10.00 with ALL proceeds going to Cancer Research. If you're interested in buying any you can contact me at or post a comment on this post. Please pass this on to everyone you know as I'm still looking for donations. Thanks!

I saw the card with butterflies on Tobi's website and fell in love with it! It's so cheerful and full of colour, I just had to try it.

If you have any feedback I'd appreciate it as I'd like to know if I'm moving in the right direction.
On another note.... I rode my bike OUTSIDE today for the first time since training for the ride. It was great, other than the SNOW! (I think I'm more ready than ever to see summer arrive). I went with another girl who's also signed up for the ride. It was a short ride (due to cold and snow) but was a good starting point. With the clocks going forward it will make getting out alot easier since weeknight rides are more of a possibility.
I'm going to get started on cards and will post another selection as soon as I can!
