Diane's first ever handcrafted card!

I've had the honor of introducing my friend Diane to papercrafts!! We have been having a great time having some little "classes" while I get her acclimated to this fun new worldof paper and ink!! : ) . She is doing awesome and it is apparent that she has definitely being bitten by the bug! heeheehee

Here are a couple of pictures of cards we made the other day. This is Diane's first ever handcrafted card! : ) I'd say she is a natural! what about you? : )

Diane selected the colors for this card from my Stampin Up papers. The image is called "Huggy Bellas" by Stamping bella. The background on the Certainly Celery green was stamped with Versamark using a stamp set from MSE. The ribbon is an Offray ribbon. We both used sentiments from The Angel Company. We gave the girls a little bling using my all time favorite glitter pen "Stardust" by Sakura.

Thank you for looking!! Have a super day!!

ant news

I know I have been seriously! MIA. How have you been?? I have missed my blogger friends : ) I hope to hear from each of you again very soon.
We've had a few challenges at "my ant hill" in the past few months but for the most part life is good! Sadly, our Africa trip has been post poned but we are praying the Lord will make a way for us to go in January 2011. We are thrilled that we have a new long-term house guest, a dear friend, Diane, who has shown an interest in papercrafts!! (Yahoo it does it get any better than this?!) I'm looking forward to Blogging & BLURFING! once again. I've missed my card making and have especially missed seeing all your fantastic creations!!
I know I promised a few of you that I would post my calendar pages for August through November - and I will! but please bear with me a little longer while I get the pictures of my pages taken. For now I wanted to share a card I made using Stampin' Up papers and a Crafty Secrets clear stamp image. You will notice a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders too. I created this card for you! : ) and for all my sweet cyber friends who send me notes of encouragement and friendship! I'm back!! : )
But enough about me! I'm off to go blurfing to see what you ladies have been up to! : )
Thank you for stopping by my ant hill!
