Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
I sure did! The weather is looking great and
I got a bunch of cards done at my Crop! Of course
I still have to make a bunch of graduation cards....
Sooo I guess that's next on the list! :o) Today we have
a Special Guest Designer with us! I'm gonna tell ya a little
story first... I don't know if I told ya this before or not but
my sister Mi-Mi didn't start scrapbooking/cardmaking until
I showed her how to do it! Yes... this is true! She came down
to help me out a couple of years ago when my husband
was ill and it was pretty close to my boys birthdays....
and I told her I needed to make some birthday cards
for my kids so she sat with me while I was getting
ready to make them and I said would you like to
make them a card? And she was like I guess... HOW?
Sooo I gave her some pointers and we started talking
about crafting and my supplies.... and the next thing I know
she was HOOKED! I mean really hooked! Within a few weeks
of her going home I got her addicted to Ebay and crafting supplies!
And the rest was history! LOL Well the same thing goes for our
Special Guest today! She too didn't do anything with crafting....
until a couple of years ago when she said to me.... I gotta buy
some Christmas cards! I shutter at that thought! :o)
When I replied.... Why buy them? I can show you how to make
them and you can use my supplies! She thought about it
and said sure why not.... Soo we spent some time together
and we made some really pretty Christmas cards she could
send out to her family... and then she too was Hooked!
She would ask me were I got some things and she
started "Collecting" her own little supplies and at Christmas
time I surprised her with Basic Crafting supplies everyone
should have on hand and now this woman makes cards all the time!
In fact she is in my card swap group too! :o) And this other
Person who is our Very Special Guest today is our MOM!!!!
Yup.. I asked my mom if she would make an
anniversary card for our 1 year blogaversary and she did!
So Please Welcome our Mom
as today's Guest Designer!
I don't think my mom expected me to show a picture of her!
Sorry MOM! But as a guest designer we need to show the
lovely person behind the project! :o)
Isn't her card pretty? I love how it turned out!
This is a 5" Square Card
Card stock, Ink, Punches - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - DCWV (Luxury Stack)

She even did the inside.... How great is that! :o)
She normally wouldn't write down how she made
a card so that was a challenge for her! But I think
she did an AWESOME Job! :o)
