Wedding and Baby Cards

Baby boy card with acetate front

Inside baby boy card

 Marian is offering a class on the 28th where you will make one boy baby card, one girl baby card, and two wedding cards (one of which is shown here).  These are amazing cards that you really have to see.  Marian always puts things on the inside of her cards to finish them off. (I personally have started doing this so that I don't have to write so much on the inside of my cards, lol) 

You'll make all four cards for $18.00.  She is offering the class at both 12:30 and 6:30.  We always need a baby card or wedding card at the last minute.  Now you can make these and have them on hand.  Call to sign up today as this class is already filling up!

I Love Peacock Feathers

I don't know what it is about peacock feathers other than I'm blown away by the colors.  The past several years I've really been drawn to them.  All my artwork now has a feather somewhere on it.  Margy gave me the prettiest photo of a peacock from the Cinci Zoo that she took, blew up, painted the frame and spritz it with glimmer spray.  So cool.  Hangs in the shop.  Beth found a metal embossed peacock mounted on wood at Good Will.  Brought it to me, I took it home and repainted it with Smooch.  Really cool.  Hangs in the shop.  Peacock feather butterfly on the cash register.  Peacock feather in the brochure holder.  Peacock feather fans over the markers.  You get the picture, lol.  Weeelllllllll....about a year ago I was talking to Marsha about peacocks and she mentioned that she has some in her neighborhood, way up north of Cincinnati, and they scream, and they make a mess and they molt.   They lose their feathers.  OMGosh!  So I say to Marsha, if you ever get the chance, I would love to have a real peacock feather.  Time passes....and passes....and passes....basically I forgot about this conversation.  (I know that doesn't surprise some of you, lol)  Last Thursday, Marsha's daughter Lindsey comes in the shop to bring some more stamps from her mom for consignment and she is followed by her fiance who is carrying a LARGE bag of ... ready for this?....PEACOCK FEATHERS!!! Oh my!! They are gorgeous! And so many!  I went right out and got a vase for them and spent Friday arranging them.  They are now in the class room. Marsha, thank you from the bottom of my heart!  I am sharing some pictures with ya'll so you can enjoy them too.  Have a great Wednesday!

"Chair" Up

Do you have a bunch of stamps of a certain image and have no idea why you bought them or what you planned on doing with them.  You just liked them and so you bought them.  I'm sure I'm the only one who has ever done this.  Bought a stamp on impulse.  I found myself with several chair stamps.  Don't know why.  Have no clue.  But I have quite a few.  So what better way to use them then by having a class.  That's how "Chair" Up came to be.  You'll make 5 cards in this class and will use several different techniques.  Join me as we make 5 cards for $15.00 on Tuesday September 13th at either 12:30 or 6:30.  I will have a tray full of sentiments for your choosing.  Call and sign up asap as there are only a couple of seats left.
