Children's Parties

Last week at Donna's party she ask me if her daughter Brianna and her friends could attend and I said yes. She had a table just for them and I showed them how to make the 3x3 card using our new Builder Wheel and they liked it because it was quick and easy. Then I showed them how to make book marks and layed out the supplies and let them at it. They came up with some very creative ideas and they had a great time. Just look at those proud faces. From left to right: Lauren, Brianna, Samantha, Ashley I offer children's birthday parties; the children will stamp a bag, make a card and a treat container, plus I will make invitations for you! All you have to do is serve refreshments and open presents. contact me today if you have an upcoming birthday!
This could even be a party for your adult friends but of course I would change the products for you and your friends. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Build a Bear Class at Garner NC Library

On Saturday I am offering a children's class using our Build a Bear die cut at the library in Garner, NC. I know the children will love it. They will make two bears and my downline Jessica and I have already made the sleeping bags out of the top note die cut and they are so cute. When they finish they will keep one bear and sleeping bag and we will donate the other one to the Ronald McDonald house in Chapel Hill. I am looking forward to Saturday. I will also be offering Build a Bear Birthday parties for children contact me for more information. Flyer for class at the library.
This is a close up of one of my samples.
This is prep area when working on 15 and matching designer paper with cardstock. What fun that was.
Thanks for stopping by. Frances

Happy Mother's Day

This is the card I made my mother for Mother's day and she loved it. You can't tell but on the elegant eggplant part I used the Manhatten Flower embossing folder and it really looks sweet.
Several weeks ago my husband was planting spinach and I never noticed what he was doing (he normally plants them in a row and a few weeks later I was outside and he was watering the garden and I happened to pay attention to the spinach and this is what he did, is this not sweet or what. He planted spinach and mustard greens in a heart shape. I was so surprised. :)
I got to celebrate Mothers day a little early last week. My son Chris surprised me with a visit from New Hamphire. My other son Eric and his wife Chrissy invited us over for dinner on April 30th and when we got there my other son was there cooking dinner for us. What a sweet surprise. After chatting with me on the phone Chris called Eric and said you better invite her over quick you know how she has those stamping parties and classes. Well they know me well. I did have a church craft fair but I called my partner and told her I would help her set up and I would work an hour but then she was on her own. It worked out perfectly. Thanks for letting me share my blessings.
Frances, Eric, Chris, Rich
