Card Group Today At My House






Hi Everyone!

In just a while our monthly card group will be getting together at my house. We usually meet at Diane's. My house isn't exactly what I would call super clean but it sure is reasonably clean! LOL I have moved all my furniture in my living room and set up tables. I made 2 treats for each person. A two sided teabag holder made a bit larger for bags of mini M&M's along with a pretty stamped card on one side. And a pull up candy bar holder(I just love this one!) I have them sitting at the top right of their place settings.

I am teaching a Fortune Cookie Box with Fortune Cookies(my sister will video tape me while I demo and then I will post it later today). Aren't those boxes cute. I got them from another site over a year ago and have been dying to try them.

I also have a couple of cards they can make if they would like and time permits. Barb is also teaching a card today. So it will be fun. She is a good one for using texture, layers and tools we forget we had! :0)

Well, I must get the hamburgers and brats on the grill.(yes we are having food...lots of food!). So enjoy and I will return later tonight to share more pictures and a video.

I wish you all time to stamp today, and especially with friends!

Till my next post...

  4. Shirley,
    What a great day! Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into insuring such a good time for all of us. I am so thankful for your friendship. You and Lee are so generous for opening up your home to us and providing all the food, goodies and drinks. You and Barb did a great job teaching your projects to us. Why, oh why do I have to follow you two next month :( LindaN

  6. waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh I want to be there!!!!!!

    Before I go any further ... what are Brats???? over here in Australia a Brat is a naughty child. ...... so I'm kind of concerned hmmmmmmm

    Hamburgers sound good though :)

    These look sensational .. those boxes are gorgeous! Its so funny because just last night I was trying to find a tea box template and oriental themed designs!

    I'm so glad you all had a great time ... oh how I wish I could participate! I'm thinking (once we have moved) of starting a monthly card club ... it is such a great idea!!!!

  7. As one of the group, I must say it was a great time! Shirley is a wonderful hostess and always manages to surprise us with her treats. I'm blessed to live close enough to be a part of a circle of women who laughs, cries and prays with me. After the card group was officially over (brats ar)e a type of fat seasoned pork in a skin casing for Carly, our brats (kids) are too big to fit on the grill or I would have tried doing our 17 yo son) Shirley was gracious enough to help me make 2 awesome wedding cards, my husband, Andre, came to pick me up and ended up staying for 3 hours, eating & talking with Lee while Shirley did a lot of tweaking of card designs. We never did get to Kohl's to do any shopping!

    I truly appreciate Shirley's friendship & talent and Lee is very tolerant of 10 chatty women invading his house for several hours! You both are precious to many people.

    Love.

    Jeanne S.

  14. Thanks so much to Lee & Shirley for opening up their home to all of us and providing such deliscious food! Shirley your project was awesome - you always have something for us that I have never seen before - I don't know how you do it. Your extra goodies - candy bar holder and tea bag holder are so darn cute. Barb did a great job on her card except for the bow tying challenged students! :) (She ended up making all the bows with a bow maker for everyone) I am anxious because I have to follow you and Barb next month. It just isn't fair :) It was an exceptional good day. LindaN

    1. Oh Linda, you don't have to worry. You always have something fun! I still love the little books we made! That was so awesome!!! Besides I think the best thing is we don't have to do something too difficult each time. The idea is just to have fun and create! :0)
