Catching Up :0)

Hello all!

We have been having major problems with our Internet server. We will hopefully have a permanent fix soon. Thanks so much for you patience. SO just in case I am dropped...AGAIN...before I can post, I will make this brief.

We had our card night at Diane's and did a card exchange(which I will post later). I shared how to make these cute bubblegum machines and cards. I got the directions from Connie Babbert's blog. It's hard to tell but the card has a piece of acetate over the gumballs. It gives it that extra touch. The ones pictured here were sent to my brother for his weekly card/gift. The were a big hit. Thanks go out to my sister-in-law for setting them up for everyone when they got home.

The items used were:
Assorted color card stock from Stampin Up for the gumballs,silver, basic black and real red cardstock for gumball machine, brilliant blue and brilliant blue Designer Series paper for card, circle punches, silver brads, Real Red Ink(to do a bit of edging around the "machine" part to give it a more weathered look, Dots embossing folder for the background, acetate, sizzix circle die, sizzix big shot and orange ribbon by Offray. And of course Tacky Tape, it really holds! :0)

I will be posting more today. It's time for Blog Candy! You won't believe how kind Tonya, the owner from Red Letter Journal is!!!!! She gave me some wonderful prizes to use for the blog candy. So check back later today.

Take care and most of all I wish you time to be creative but most of all time to stamp!

Till my next post...
