Sad to leave, Happy to be Home!

I have just returned from a mountain retreat in Hendersonville, NC with 30 wonderful women. This was the most amazing trip I have been on in quite a while.

When you get women together, without the daily responsibilities and stress of day to day life, you get to see the amazing personalities that lie beneath the surface. These women are so fun and caring and creative. I am truely honored to be able to call them my friends!
Next year's retreat is already planned for Nov. 11 thru 18. I believe I will have to start planning for the trip now because I don't want to miss it. Let me know if this is something that you would like to be a part of and I will put you in touch with the girl in charge of planning all of this.

Another Cascading Card

The Cascading card is certainly one of my favorites when I want to make a "WOW" card! This one is for a special friend who has really gone above and beyond for me. I will explain more later.

I made this card with a mix of the stamp sets Blue Ribbon and You're Amazing. The thank you letters are stickers that are stuck to a 3 1/2" circle of clear plastic so they just float there. I love the little ticket banner. It was made of 2 painted skewers and some bakers twine.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. This is fabulous Softball weather! We will be enjoying the weather and the sport this weekend. Go Storm '01!! Thanks for stopping by! XO, Mimi

A Special Friend!

I wanted to show off the gift I made for a special friend and her husband. They had their wedding vows blessed after over 40 years together. It was also her Birthday. So, I wanted it to be special.

While walking through a local craft store, I saw these unfinished bird houses. They are made in such great shapes. Of course, the church is the one that spoke to me and I knew I had to get one and decorate it for her.
After giving it a good base coat of creamy vanilla paint, I covered the outside with some pretty papers. I even uses some SU shimmer paper for the roof. Then I added some washi tape, velvet and pom pom trim, leaves, vines, flowers and for the finishing touch, some shimmery "snow".

I think she was very happy with it. I really enjoyed making it. Thanks for stopping by! XO, Mimi

WCMD in Review!

Saturday was such a fun time her at The Paper Rose Studio. The mix of ladies that attended was such a nice blend of ages and personalities. Thank you, so much, to those that came!

Here are the photos of the cards we made.

 We also made these beautiful rosettes using the Designer Rosette Bigz die and the Birds of a Feather DSP.
We also added some of the silver shimmer paper and paper flowers, ribbon and leaves. They turned out so pretty and each one different.

Then we played around with clothes pins and added DSP, magnets, ribbon and anything else we could glue on. They look so pretty on the fridge, holding important papers.
 I also showed everyone how easy it is to make a wrapped fabric or ribbon rosette using SU's giant glue dots. It makes quick work of these fun accents. They took them home to add to a card or a pretty project.
In between all this fun, we had lots of free drawings for yummy products. We were all pretty well fed too with sweets and a nice lunch. I can't wait till next year to do it again! XO, Mimi

I've Been a Little Busy!

I have been a busy bee these last couple days. My daughter asked me to make her a card for her bus driver. She thinks he is super awesome, and he is. He looks out for her and makes sure she stays safe. He has been her bus driver for a few years now. So, as soon as she asked me to make her a card, I thought of a template I had purchased as a download. It is for a School Bus, Firetruck and a Police Car. They are super cute and easy with great directions. You can find them HERE.
Then, last wee, a good friend of mine told me it was her in-laws 50th Anniversary. I quickly asked her if I could make the card for her. I mean, how often do you get to make a 50th Wedding Anniversary Card for someone?! I was so excited. I hope my husband and I are still around for our 50th. I love how this turned out and so did she.
Last, and not least, Hobby Lobby just opened in town. I met up with my dear friend Pat to take a leisurely tour. How exciting for us! It is such an awesome and HUGE store. They have lots of yummy fabric, party supplies and home decor. Not to mention all of the fabulous crafts.
Well, I guess that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi

What's on Your Bucket List?

I have had this little book on my mind for a while. Actually, ever since I purchased the bucket die.
Well, I finally made it. I used Jillibean soup papers, lots of fibers, rub-ons, stickers, flowers, etc.

 I would love to have a little class for you to make one. The cost would be $10.00. Let me know if this looks like something you would like to do.
Hope you're having a great day! XO, Mimi
