Good afternoon everyone! I am back from my trip to Lasting Impressions in Utah and I have lots to share with you, including some very fun card samples. First … “thanks a ton” to my dear Utah Sister, Kaye, for having me in her home for a week. I don’t think we missed a day of laughing ourselves silly. And laughter is so healing and I’ve heard that you can lose weight by laughing and if that’s true, I should be very skinny. Here’s a typical meal for Kaye and I:
Oh gosh, these sundaes were so good and I so enjoyed my stay with Kaye, her puppy Scooter, and cats Luna and Mustache.
Another thank you to L.I. Owners Kerry and Lane Hill who provided me with a huge crafting table, light box, cardstock and templates to play with all week long and, play I did! Here’s a photo of Kerry and Lane with one of the cards I made and I can’t wait to share the silly story behind this snowman card below. Thank you Kerry and Lane:
Okay, now some card samples including this snowman! When I first used this template in my classes, and being a “California Beach Gal” all my life, I didn’t realize that those white, fluffy things on either side of the snowman’s face were ear muffs. I know, I know but, I saw them as some sort of snowballs stuck to the side of his head and the bar going across the top was his hat! Good grief.:-( Well, once a snow bunny in my class pointed out that they were ear muffs, I got it and came up with this card. Trust me, a much better version than my original one!
Here are more card samples I made while at Lasting Impressions:
I have lots more to share but running out of steam with a whole lot of laundry to do. Sometimes, you need a vacation from the vacation! More later. Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
