I had a good friend tell me that she visited my blog and that I hadn't posted anything since February. I was shocked - not because I didn't post anything that long, but more so that she came to visit !! LOL !! When people don't leave comments, then the blogger never know you were visiting. I just figured that I was doing this for my entertainment, in my spare time!!
So, with that being said, I must apologize to those of you who do come and visit - I really had no idea !

I have more class projects to post and I'll start with two of them today. This particular card is a trifold card that is embellished with a punched flower. I used both the small and the oval SU punches for the five petals. The center of the flower I die cut with my Nestabilities. I liked using the word "Wonderful" as the stem of the flower. I added some SU grosgrain ribbon and some Stickles for a little bling. The designer paper that I used is SU's Le Jardin. Cardstock is SU's Certainly Celery and Apricot Appeal. The card is a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card so it fits an A2 envelope. This is also a great fold for sending pictures. They can be easily attached to the inside of the card - like a mini album.

The next card that we did is is a fun triangular fold. The picture turn embellishment on the right, is actually holding the card closed. The stamp set is by Stampendous and this
is the cup cake set that was exclusive to Electic Paperie. I just love this set and there are so many things you can do with it. The outside boarder of this card says "happy birthday my little cup cake". Because this set is acrylic and goes on an acrylic block, it is very easy to do this kind of boarder because you can see exactly where you are stamping. The designer paper is Flowers for You by SU. The embellishments are from Oriental Trading. The layout for the card comes from SCS and is really a fun fold to try.

I have to apologize for the pictures. I'm always taking them late at night and I don't have a place with real good lighting. I hope to change that problem soon. I think that is why I don't post real often - I need to correct the picture taking issue. So, I better get on with it.

Well, that is it for today. I'll be sure and post something at the end of this week. If you like what you see, please leave a comment. If you have a question, please ask - I'll be happy to help out. Have a great week.
