Owl wish U a Happy Bday!

Hello & Happy MLK Day! Did ya have a great
weekend? Are you still on your weekend with today
being a holiday? Either way... I hope you have time
to enjoy the little things life has to offer you today! :)
I want to reply to a comment from
who asked "What is a Card Swap?"
Swaps are always a fun part of any craft groups.  
For a card swap, each crafter makes a number of cards and
then trades them with other crafters.  This is a GREAT
way to get new ideas, get a good variety of cards,
learn new techniques, and meet new people. 
It is far easier to make 8 of one card than 8 different cards. 
We have a theme every month and we get the list at the beginning
of every year... So February's theme is Female Birthday....
So I just need to make 8 Female Birthday Cards (all the same)
and bring them to the Feb. Swap and exchange them with
the other gals in my group... and I'll have 8 new cards to share...
Now, sometimes you'll get beginner crafters in the group, so
you need to be supportive of the cards they make no matter
how bad you may think they are.... They will get better and it
helps if you're more experienced than them so you can
give them tips & tricks to help them improve..... :)
Before I moved I was in a card swap group... and when we
started it.. a lot of them had no clue how to make a card...
I was in charge of the monthly theme and making sure everyone
brought their cards whether they could make it that month or not...
We would have 2 people teach a new technique every month as well....
Over time.... My friends started to make some amazing cards...
And I was so glad to be apart of the group & helping them
bloom into the wonderful crafters they are today! :)
You can also do an online card swap too.... you just need some
friends who would want to participate and then mail your
cards off.... it's fun & exciting to get some fun Snail Mail! :)
Any way... I hope I answered your question! Sorry its a bit long!
I guess I'll share a card with ya today! :)
Card Stock - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - Echo Park (Walk in the Park)
Banner/Tags - Echo Park Embellishments (Walk in the Park)
Shapes _ Sil. Store
Owl w/Hat - Miss Kate Cuttables
Sentiment - computer Generated
Orange Twine - My Mind's Eye
I used my Cricut Explore to Print & cut the Owl out
because I could not get my Silhouette to Cut the stars
out as good.... The rest of the items were cut on my Silhouette....
I'm entering the following Challenges:
Little Scrap Pieces - Show it off Saturday
Silhouette Challenges - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch Challenge
Thanks for taking a peek today!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

Hello & Happy Dance Friday to ya!
 I finally went to the card swap this week
and met some fun people! They swap cards
once a month and there is only 8 ladies in the group!
So this should be fun & interesting! :)
I was also invited to go along with them to
the Scrapbooking Expo the end of March....
So, it looks like I'm making friends! YAY for ME! :)
Went to Vegas Yesterday, and all was well...
Got to drop some furniture off at my sons house...
We didn't get to see my son since he was at work
& I didn't want to wait til after 9 pm to leave Vegas..
I did make a trip to Hobby Lobby which was so
FUN for me... Hubby doesn't care for it but I went
to an RC Car place with him too so we are now even! HA
Any who.... no big plans for the weekend
probably just hanging out at home
and maybe making a couple of things.... :)

Winter Penguins....

Hello & Happy Wednesday Everyone!
Today I've got something different to share with you!
Over the weekend I was making a bunch of different
wood crafts... So I thought I would share one with you!
I really enjoy making these projects....
It's a nice change from cards (Which I love to Make!)
But the painting seems to relax me... :)

I LOVE how these turned out! :)
It's perfect for sitting on a shelf
 since it's still Winter time! :)

I glittered his belly & the blue snowflake....
Added some blue tulle & gem to the snowflake
I used 2 cotton balls & some blue wire to make his ear muffs!
Inked around all of the edges.... :)

This little cutie has a glitter belly as well...
I used some Echo Park Winter Paper for his scarf...
Inked his edges as well.... :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
