It's great to see some

blue sky today!! We got hit with yet another winter storm this week and YES I know we live in Nova Scotia but that doesn't mean I have to like all this snow. We live in a split entry home and my studio is in the basement. This is the view from my windows.

The view from our back deck is similar. We did have a path shoveled in the middle of the deck to get to the bird feeder. Hmmm... needless to say we have some shovelling to do again as the feeder is almost empty.
I love the little tracks in the snow!! We did get together Monday night for class and made a 2011 calendar. There are numerous sites on the web showing the how to's for this project.

Sorry, but I don't have the paper names. My stem is just a bit too far to the right, in class everyone moved the stem a bit closer to the left border and it balanced it out nicely. We used Spellbinders Labels 15 and I have to add how much I love the shape of this set. We also used MS Doily Lace Trim. Stamps are Fancy Pants Delight.
Have a great weekend!!!

OK.. you're not allowed to faint

because I am finally posting!!!!! I'm not sure why I haven't posted in such a long time as I have been teaching weekly, so it's not that I don't have cards to share. No promises, but I will try to update on a more regular basis.

Started classes last night for the new year and we kicked it off with Valentines. I saw a card on Wendy Weixler's blog and cased it for our class.
We used the dotted CB folder, My Mind's Eye pp, Dreams come true (SU) and $1 stamps from M's. I was getting rather stressed last spring with the classes, working full time and trying to come up with new ideas so I changed the format of the classes. Now the girls make 4 of the same card, which means I only need to come up with 1 idea. Much lower stress for me and they get 3 cards to give away and 1 to add to their growing collection. Have a happy Tuesday.....
