Today I want to share my St Patty's Card. I am Irish - you all know it - maiden name was O'Reilly :) So disappointed that SU just does not have much out there for St. Patrick's day. So I made my own. I took our small heart punch and punched little hearts out of three different green DSP patterns. Each heart was folded in half and the crease was dipped in Tombow and then attached to the card so the leaves pop up a bit. Put three of them together and you have a Shamrock.

Today I want to show you the steps and the final product of the Spring Card we made using the Stained Glass Vellum technique. The very first step was to heat emboss the flowers on vellum cardstock using white embossing powder. Then we flipped the vellum over and sponged on color on the back using daubers. We didn't have to be careful with the coloring here, as we're going to cut out the flowers.

Each month I share the technique we learn in club - and this month was Stained Glass Vellum Technique. The 6x6" technique card below is what we made to put in our binders. You can see the flowers are embossed in black, then flipped over and colored with markers from the back.

So today I wanted to share a card I made with the Petal Parade SAB stamp set. This set is just one of the items you can get FREE during SAB with a $50 order. I've got to admit - this set did not appeal to me at all. At first I thought I would not even get it - but I am so glad I changed my mind and did.

Just wanted to share the cute little treats I gave to my student workers for Valentine's day! You might have seen my previous post of tootsie pop holders here - http://www.crazystampinglady.blogspot.com/2014/01/tootsie-pop-valentine.html so I changed it up a little bit and made these -
Instead of using Tootsie pops I found the round strawberry and cream suckers at a local store and thought they'd be just perfect. Here's a side view so you can see the sucker.
Lots of fun to make - and the gals loved them!! ~Maureen

Just wanted to share the Valentine I gave to my sweetie -
My gift to Paul -
and finally last night's dinner - steak smothered in sauteed mushrooms and onions, baked potatoes, steamed asparagus and Cranberry sparkling wine (needed something pink or red :) and coffee ice cream sundaes for dessert-
It was yummy and we had a nice evening together. We're going out for dinner later this weekend - hopefully avoiding the Valentine crowds :) ~Maureen

Today I wanted to share the FUN valentine's I made for my grandbabies. I found these adorable Bubble Pens a few weeks ago at a Party store and loved them. Many of you know BUBBLES are one of my favorite things - I have them at work and in nearly every room of my house. I blow bubbles whenever I'm stressed -and watch my stress just blow away!! Blowing bubbles is also something I do so often with the grandbabies - so just could not resist these.
~Love you all, Gramma

Recently I had a fun Gramma day with my sweet little Zavian. We did some fun shopping and he picked out a new SHARK lego kit. Just look at that sweet face. We were lucky that Papa had a day off work -so they got to work on the legos together.

I know I have shared clouds before - but I really do love clouds. I am just mesmerized by them. So I wanted to share a few pictures I took this last week. The top one I just took today.
