Another brayered card

I can't seem to make a simple card. Here's another brayered one. I'm on a roll (no pun intented, you know, brayer....roll? anyway...), but unfortunately have a lot of real work to catch up on before I go to work tomorrow. At least I feel fulfilled for now rather than frustrated (hence my blog title, lol).

Valentines Favors

I am hoping to get my act together to have a workshop and to use these as gifts for those that attend. If you are a reader of my blog, you know I like to handmake paper roses which are also included.

New Stampin' Up! goodies

I got my box of new goodies yesterday so I have been playing all day. Only got two cards done because I was experimenting, but I love what I did. I love love love the En Francais stamp! What beautiful rubber etching. Makes a wonderful background.

Cards from my Michelle Zindorf brayering class

Oh my gosh, did we have a great time this weekend getting inky! I had about 48 ladies plus Michelle and I this weekend stamping and brayering and having an overall wonderful time. I feel energized and exhausted at the same time.

I am so excited about how my cards came out. There were so many little things I was doing wrong; things that were extremely easy to fix when the "master" told you how to do it! So without further adieu, here are my cards. I feel like an artist. All supplies are from Stampin' up!

Happy New year! Wow, it's been 2 months since I posted last. Work has been crazy and then of course the holidays were here. I went to NY for two weeks at Christmas to help after my mom's knee replacement surgery (she's doing great). So now it's the new year and I am trying to get back into crafting. So while sitting watching TV this holiday weekend, I put my new 6 petal punch (which I found in NY) to use and made some 2" roses. Don't know what I'll do with them, but making them made me feel like I accomplished something.

Also, Michelle Zindorf is coming to my house this weekend to teach her brayering technique. Almost 50 woman are coming from all over the state to take these classes. I'm excited that she'll be here and also excited that I may finally learn those tips and tricks that you just can't get from reading a web site, no matter how well it's done! Hopefully I'll be posting some pictures.
