Random.org gave me the number 24 and at first I was just excited because I only had to count back 2!!! But then when I saw that it was Whitney- I was even more excited! Whitney was at my class this past weekend and she is about to sign up to be a demo under one of my downline! She will be like my grand baby!
Here is what Whitney said:
I would design a stamp set that is all penguins. We have one cute penguin in the Punch Pals... but that's it. I want a stamp set that is all penguins. We have so many snowmen!!! And this set wouldn't be necessarily Christmasy. (Think Happy Feet or March of the Penguins)-Whit L.
You guys had some GREAT ideas!!! I am thinking that we should work st the SU home office!! I loved the idea for a music set, swimming and gymnastics, and more masculine stamps!!!
Thanks again for helping me to celebrate my SU anniversary!!

I stamped the flower in black stazon ink on watercolor paper. It took an entire sheet of watercolor paper!!! Then I colored the entire flower with my Pumpkin Pie Marker and the leaves with my certainly Celery marker. After it dried I added another layer of the same colors- but just in certain area for a shadow effect. I then used my aquapainter to blend and distribute the color. I also used a black marker to darken the middle of the flower. I attached the water color paper to Pumpkin Pie. Then I punched 2 holes and threaded the thick celery grosgrain ribbon through. I added to clack brads and attached to a Soft Sky base.
Last night I brought this card to my sweet friend Sara. I was hoping that it might put a smile on her face!

Here are a few pictures of the projects that we will be making in one of my April classes! We will be making four cards and a portfolio to keep them in. Wouldn't this make a great Mother's Day gift?! The stamp set, Bloomin' Beautiful, and the DSP can be found in the occasions Mini catalog.
I will be offering this class on Sunday, April 27th from 1-4Pm nat my home. The cost is $35. Please email me if you are interested. email@example.com
Now for my scrapbookers... do not fret. I am planning a class for you too! I am not quite ready to show the projects but I am planning a class full of simple layouts that don't require a ton of time or products. These are going to be 12x12 layouts that you can recreate over and over again! And an extra bonus- the class wil be priced very reasonable. More details soon!
On a side not- I am off to Nolan's funeral this morning. Please say an extra prayer for the Morrison family today. It's going to be a tough one.

Here is the card that I brought to Sara on the day that her son passed away.
I cased this card from SCS Pickle Tree. All I changed was the main image and the sentiment. I just got this stamp set and paper so I knew that it would be perfect for a card for Sara. I stamped the flowers 2 times. Once in Wasabi and then once in Guava. I paper Pieced it together and then used the circle punch to cut it out. This paper is so pretty (I say that about all the DSP!) and I just used Chocolate Chip ink and sponged around the sides for an even more distressed look.
I hope you enjoy! Don't forget to sign up for my blog candy on the previous post.

My Always Heart card uses the combo of Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and Taken with Teal. I got this combo from this site: http://www.scraptitude.com/colorcombo/
There are about a million combos that I want to try on this site- but for some reason this is the one that stood out to me yesterday. I used my brand new Always stamp set and some of the Spring Break DSP. And I am always excited when these Flower Fusions match my cards! I need SU to make these in more colors!!!
My pink flower card (creative name, huh?) was made for Kristina Werner's 1st color challenge. Check out her blog: http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/index.html
She is such an amazing stamper and she posted a challenge to use the colors Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranite, and Pumpkin Pie. I think they make such a cute combo and I hope to use it again! I cased the layout from this blog: http://sarah331980.blogspot.com/ She did a cute card with fish that I fell in love with.
My card uses the Bud Basics Stamp set and some more of that Spring Break DSP as well as some of the Pretty in Pink DSP that comes in the hostess pack. I actually pulled out my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the flowers! Why don't I use that thing more???
I had so much fun playing with colors yesterday that I think I will play some more today! But first- the laundry needs my attention.

She wrote "I'll comment! I always think about it, but only occasionally do. I found your blog when you posted about your kids and the 'fun' grocery shopping trip. Congrats on your year with SU! I love your work, thanks for sharing!"
Send me your address and I will mail the scrapbook to you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much for all of your sweet comments! Celebrating my SU anniversary is so much fun! My son wanted to draw more names and I would have loved for you all to win- but where would I find time to make 33 more scrapbooks?!!
