Wedding Shower Tomorrow!

I've been busy getting ready for a wedding shower I'm giving tomorrow for one of my dearest friend's daughter who is getting married in May. I made this card with a saying that I love for the parents of the bride, and I'm sure it will bring a tear or two! The saying reads:
When children find true love, parents find true joy.

Some of the ideas I'll be demonstrating at my March 21st class will come from this shower --- they are ideas that can be adapted to any party or family gathering....for example...have you ever heard of the Right/Left game? I believe there are 2 spots left for my class. It's a Martha Stewart-type class filled with food, entertaining and paper craft ideas --- 3 of my favorite things on the planet!!! Click on my picture above to read more details about the class.  If you can't come to this class, I'll be teaching them every few months!

BTW ---  The heart punch is from Martha Stewart and the largest background paper is one of those huge sheets of paper from the Paper Source.

FYI: Did you know that you can color black and white inkjet printer images with your Copic markers and the black ink will not smear?! Download the FREE Easter Bunny pdf described below (in the February 19th blog entry) and try it out for yourself! (Test your paper and image with your Copic markers to make sure the paper selected won't smear the ink.)

Sample of a January CLUB Project

Here are some pics of the paper purse and matching card I made for my son's girlfriend's birthday. The smaller and last picture shows the inside of the card made with the Labels 3 Nesties. My husband's assistant gave them to me recently because an online site mixed up her order and sent her an extra Labels 3 set to make up for an error on their I was the lucky recipient of the FREEBIE! Thank you, Tiffany!!!! The paper purse was made with my January Card & Craft Club template. If you'd like to make some of these purses, write to me and I'll send purchase details for the instructions and template. The Happy Birthday saying  and background oval were cut on my Cricut (using the STORYBOOK cartridge --- one of my favorite cartridges). The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch --- oh, it's so hard to resist her punches!...and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder (WITH LOVE) for the line of raised dots along with my Scor-Pal to make the raised straight lines on the front of the card. The little silver adhesive balls (purchased at Michael's) on the butterflies and hearts added a nice touch of bling to the final look of the card.
