Sunny Day Workshop Fun!

HI friends,
These are photos of my workshop from last Saturday. The ladies purchased my Sunny Day Card Kits and we worked on them. I pre-made up twelve cards for them to copy or they could make up their own. I love when they make up their own but usually they want to use my ideas and that is fine! We always have fun!

Tricia was new to the class and made her own cute designs. Thanks for coming! You were a joy to have!

Patty and my long time friend, Melanie. Melanie and Patty used my examples.

Carol, my wonderful MB buddy! Carol made up her darling designs.
Thanks for bringing Tricia and a cake!

Carmen is hard at work!

Evelyn and Lorrie, sorry I did not get your photo. Kerry sorry the kids were sick! I will catch you up on a private lesson! See ya'll in two weeks!

A St. Patty's Day thank you from a dear customer!

Isn't this soooo precious! One of my dear customers and sweet MB friends, made me this darling card. It is so cute and it conveys her fun sense of humor in the message. I just love it! Thank you, Ruth, aka Cricaholic!!

The inside is so cute!! You can't see the embossing but it is deeply embossed.

Good Friend Birthday Card for my niece

I am nuts about the Stamp Set, Good Friend! I have wanted it for so long. I finally got it after having so much fun with the darling birdie stickers in the Sunny Day Simply Scrappn' Kit.
This is not my original design.  It was from another demo and this was her total idea. Her card was so cute and much cuter.  I switched it out, and stamped the birdie to change it a bit,  but loved the format of her little stitching.
I used Wow Flowers for the birthday sentiment
Happy Together for the darling little flower
Thankful Thinking for the tiny flower
Good Friends for this precious bird
Paper, ribbon, etc from my Sunny Day Card Kit- this was such a great kit!
Only Orange, Pink Passion, & Tempting Turquoise Inks
Tempting Turquoise Ribbon
Paper Piercer and Mat Pack- I LOVE this thing!! It is sooo much fun to pierce these holes!!

Barb's Chocolate Bunny Cards!!

I made these cards with this darling bunny stamp!  I just love it!!
On this one I  used Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper,  Craft Card Stock,  Orchid Opulence Card Stock, Well Scripted Stamp Set, Chocolate Bunny Stamp Set and the Trio Flower Punch and Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon. I have to say, I think he is too cute!!!

I used the same materials on this one but also the Eggscoutrements Stamp set, Hodgepodge Hardware, Pink Satin Ribbon, Scallop Oval Frame die cut, and the adorable Scallop Trim border which you can earn for free if you spend $50.

No biting his ears off but it would be fun to do a card with one of the ears off!
