The first Two Toonies Tuesday went great! Thanks to the ladies who came out despite the sicknesses that are running rampant these days. I hope you had as much fun as I did! To those of you who couldn't make it due to illness - I hope you get feeling better. Hopefully we'll see you next time! You missed out on pumpkin bars, chocolate and TimBits! All were very yummy.

As I was walking the ladies out last night I realized I didn't take any photos. They offered to do a reenactment, but it just wouldn't be the same. Next time :). So in lieu of "action" pics here's a photo of the supply table:

Here are the two cards I made. I'm not sure if they are "finished". I feel like they could use a little something extra. I'll mull over them for a bit and see if inspiration hits.

The next Two Toonies Tuesday is on March 22nd. See you then!

is our inaugural Two Toonies Tuesday! How ironic that it should fall on the 22nd :). There are still a few spots available if anyone else is interested. Perhaps you have a friend who may enjoy a night of paper crafting. Just let me know!

Double-check the "Two Toonies" page for information on what to take along.
Hopefully I'll have some photos to share on Wednesday!

Feeling Funky!

I am having so much fun using the Sale-a-bration stamps! One of the sets I was able to get for *FREE* is "Funky Four". I decided to pull it out yesterday and make a couple of cards.

I also tried out some new accessories: hemp twine and the button embosslit die from the Mini Occasions Catalog. Those brown buttons are actually made of card stock! I just put paper between the embossing plates, ran it through my Big Shot machine, and voila - embossed and cut buttons! I love that I can now coordinate buttons (ahem, "buttons") perfectly with my cards.

*Note for my open house guests: both cards were made with that clear-mount word set that I couldn't get to work at my party. *blush* However, I had NO problems at all before the open house as well as yesterday! I think when working with the smaller clear-mount stamps you have to make sure your hands are clean and the surface of the stamp and acrylic block are clean too. Using lotion before the open house was my down fall. I'll admit, nervous clammy hands didn't help either :).
