BBTB2/WildCard/Heart




Happy Monday to all.... I hope each of you had a wonderful weekend full of love, happiness and fun. Lots to report today.... First of all, it's the design team posting for our weekly challenge at BBTB2 and this week the lovely talented Penny Shuberg is our hostess. She asked us to design with Wild Card (one of my faves with the wonderful choices of unique cuts) and we were to use the Heart and Heart Envelope. I have to admit...this one gave me fitzzzzzz. I just couldn't seem to end up with a card that I really was happy with. Nonetheless, here is the final acceptance. I called this "Nine of Hearts" because I just kept adding curled up hearts and in the end, there were a total of nine. So without further adeau, here is the card. Lots of red and pink happenin' here.


This was the weekend that my fun fun fun friends Kris, Deb and Sandy came up from Tucson to spend 2-1/2 days with me for what we call "our Card Over". The living room was full of tables and tubs and pouches full of papers and embellishments and happy girls designing cards.

Here's a pix of moi' and at my table you will see my new fun DreamKuts machine. This darling little wonder cuts many sizes of papers so easily. I really love it... I think I slapped together about 20 cards and when I got bored with that, I colored in some Tilda images with my Copics, and then later I did some scrapbooking.


Deb, Sandi and Kris, at their stations, surrounded by lovely card making supplies. And you can see Heidi in the kitchen watching over Deb. Heidi loves the kitchen because that is where the foods and doggy treats live and so she kept a watchful eye for anyone who wandered in... We had a great time, and those 3 gals made the most awesome cards.


Thanks for stopping by.... And while you are visiting the BBTB2 designer blog to see the weekly challenge cards, take time to visit our newest designer, Lori Warner.
