I attended a Close to My Heart party held at Susie Q's tonight and we created this beautiful dress card. This is the second workshop that I have attended with Diane O'Leary instructing. Diane also drew the pattern for the dress. Thanks Diane for sharing this lovely element with us. Anna and Mike Fulmer own Susie Q's and they are so helpful and allow their customers to scrap and host parties at their store. Sondra, Sue, Pam, Linda, Monza, Anna, and I attended the party hosted by Bivian. Diane gave great door prizes and I won a Close to My Heart stamp set that I had planned to buy at the party. But the greatest thing about the night was that I made some wonderful new friends and look forward to scrapping with them more. "Friends are like shoes and pockets" - "you can never have too many." Card making and scrap booking have brought me many new friends and I cherish all of them. Some of these friends I only know from online contact. Isn't God great.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Please sign my guestbook so that I will know you were here. Your comments on any of the cards will also be appreciated.

This card is similar to another graduation card I saw this week. I cannot remember where I saw it. It is different and has the school colors for my cousin's twins. They are two of the sweetest young men and are nice enough to help me and my husband with jobs around our house that we are not able to do. I wish them all the success in the world. God is guiding them and I know they will do well.
This card was inspired by the Danny Kaye quote on the front of the card. I plan to put photo corners on the front but don't know what color or paper I am going to use. My daughter needs a graduation card and I need three and since we are sending some of them to the same people I wanted to make several cards.

This card was inspired by a get well card sent to a friend of mine. Jeannie had surgery but is doing great and we were able to stamp together today. She always inspires me to do something cheerful and positive. I used the Cricut to make the butterflies, scallops, and page corners. All of the card stock including the vellum on the butterflies' wings are Stampin' Up and the stamp is Emerson. These stamps are so much fun and I love to use them. Hope I didn't put to much red on the card. I just love to use the black and white paper.
