March Creative Club Cards

Here are a few of the cards we made at our last class.  The first one was designed by Naomi Smith.  I liked it so much that this is my twist on her card.  I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge by Close to My Heart.

Seaside Greetings Stamp Set D1609

This card was also scraplifted from her.  I liked the simplicity of the card.  Do you ever get so busy you don't have time to create?  Well, I say thank you to all my Close to My Heart sisters who share ideas, and to all the great artists on Pintrest for their ideas. 

Pretty Petals Stamp Set C1599

This next card reminds me of spring.

A Little Note Stamp Set A1171

Spring is sure in the air.  Here is another card to enjoy for spring.

Happy Birds Stamp Set C1600            Brushstrokes Stamp set C1608

I hope you enjoy these cards. 
 It sure feels good to get back to creating!

Typed Note – Stamp of the Month

(Click on the picture to view larger)

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a great week! There has been a lot going on in my life lately which has kept me out of my craft room. We have have been blessed with new members to our family. My son recently married and we added his new wife and two more beautiful granddaughters.
 The very next day we welcomed a new grandson.  There were a few complications and mommy had to go back to the hospital for several days.  Since I had our little guy staying with us, my time was limited.  It’s been some time since I needed to be up every couple of hours to feed a little one.  I can now say mom and baby are home doing very well.
 After months of meetings and preparations that I helped with, we held our church’s Women’s Retreat at Alderbrook for 92 women.  It turned out to be a fantastic three days with some incredible women.  I returned from it on Saturday afternoon and left Monday morning at 3:00 am for the airport to go to Mazatlan..
Bert and I just returned from a vacation to Mazatlan, Mexico with our daughter, son-in-law and their two children, plus my son’s two daughters, where we celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Tonight we will be celebrating the actual date with family and friends.

I am hoping to find a little time this week to create some more cards using the current Stamp of the Month called “Typed Note”.  This is another fun and vintage style stamp set that can be used in many different ways.  Do you remember using a Typewriter in school? I know I do!  I actually was required to take a typewriting class in high school. My grandkids take keyboard classes now.
