Hi Friends- I can't believe it is raining here again! My internet has been so hit and miss, I get on and the next thing I know I am off again-sooo, here is another try to get my last picture up for today and then I must get busy finishing up my cards for my card class at Scrappin' Friends this next week.
Happy Scrappin-Enjoy the rest of the weekend-stay dry and out of the wind-Heidi

Simple Cards

Hello again- I went last night to a girls night out "Mystery Hostess" stamp party at Amy's house (stampin' up demonstrator). OMG-we had so much fun, and we made the cutest candy treat bag topper! I needed a fun night out.

Today, I will be busy creating my cards for my next card class over at Scrappin' Friends, but before I get started, I wanted to show you some cards I have made just for the fun of it!

I love the colors of these papers (wish I could remember the company-sorry)!

I love all the dies and stamps at Papertray Ink, so of course I use them almost all of the time-here is just one example of the many dies available. Love the butterfly!

Handmade flowers are so much fun to make and they always add such a fun dimension to a card. The die cut shape positioned under "YOU mean the world" is cut from foam, again using a Papertray Ink die. Any of these flower embellishments and flowers can be purchased from Scrappin' Friends. You can contact them at:

Have a fabulous Sunday-happy scrapppin-Heidi

Love to my Daughter and Son-In-Law

Hello Friends- I hope you have had a great week. Can you believe the weather? It seems everyone, everywhere is having unusual weather. The amount of rain, winds of 60-70 miles per hour, hail, and thunderstorms we have had this week is just crazy! My internet has been down-So, needless to say, I have had time for some fun card making and scrap layouts. I did a layout of my daughter, son-in-law and grand-daughter. My son-in-law just left for 18 months in Afganastan and so I did a layout to give to my daughter of their last morning together for a while. We will miss him, and will keep him in our prayers and hearts-We love you Jared-stay safe! I will be posting some fun cards that I have done later this weekend. I am off to a fun stamp night with a group of friends tonight! Yahoo-it's girls night out and what better thing to do than get together and scrap! :) have a great weekend- Heidi

Hey Friends-
I hope you have been as busy as me, playin' with paper, scissors, and such! I wanted to pop in and share a couple of cards I am teaching over at Scrappin' Friends next month (April 13th). We are using our Copic markers for these two adorable little girls. I just love when a stamped image comes to life with Copics! :) It makes me smile and hum a happy little tune!

Ruby is from Mo's Digital Pencil-she's so adorable (reminds me of "ME" when I was little. I used to love playing with my moms beads, hats, etc.-oooohhhhh, the memories-they are sooooo good)!

Swiss Pixies Birgitta is my second stamped image that I used (she is from "All That Scraps"). I love her innocence!

Enjoy-and get craftin!!

Hello friends-
Every week "All That Scraps" hosts a new "Weekly Wednesday" card challenge. This weeks challenge is to use buttons on the card.

I used the following ingredients:
Stamp: Swiss Miss Rosalie
Paper: My Minds Eye-"Stella and Rose," Bazzill Cardstock, Bo-Bunny dot paper
Misc: Buttons, twine, trim
Happy Scrappin'

Hi Friends-

I hope you are enjoying your week, and getting a little craftin time in? It is sunny today here in Northern Ca., but rain and winds are on the way tonight! I have been very busy lately, and wanted to show you my last weeks cards I taught over at our little scrapbook store here in Redding (Scrappin' Friends).
Enjoy-and if you haven't had time to make a card, or do a little scrappin or craftin-then take some time for yourself and go play. A little play, can take away the stresses of the day!

I colored these images with my woodless colored pencils and mineral spirits. I used My Minds Eye "So Sopie" papers.
Have a great rest of the week!
