If you remember a few posts ago, I was involved in a project at the Sr. Center where I teach my classes. A group of us...Dawn, Margie, Eileen, Kay Rz, Mary and Lois, all spend time one day creating the ornaments. We did a little creating on our own, because one day just wasn't enough time...can you believe it?? The director of the Center, Linda, made the beautiful tree skirt to complete out little tree (only 30" tall). As a fundraiser, the Center had a raffle for the tree. They collected $100!!!
Thanks to our photographer, Dawn, for the photo...which I not-so-creatively edited to highlight the tree...

th card because some of you may get it in the mail...it was quick and easy to mass produce, which I need at this point. Don't you love how we used the Horizontal Slot punch to turn grass into Cattails on the green card??? I do! I saw this done at my upline's meeting. My sideline had framed this design and another in a double frame...it was so nice, I just had to CASE.

This is my card from a recent swap. I love the image of this tree. I embossed silver EP on Shimmery White CS. It's a bit hard to see, but I applied Red Chunky Glitter to the center of the flower. Time was running short (imagine that!) so I only had time to watercolor one card. Simple card, just what I needed when time was of the essence. Thanks for stopping by...

A few of the ladies from the Sr. Center have been working to make handmade ornaments for the Hospice Tree. It's so interesting to see what everyone has created. Snowmen, Santas, Stars, Trees and more. We still have a few more days to put the finishing touches on the tree...watch for more pics and some close up views of the oraments.

the 1st card was inspired by Allison Y. We embossed the stems from Pocket Silhouettes using Versamark and clear EP. My Mom help me (a lot) in creating the Lovely Lilac card. Little dots of White gel pen added some interest to this simple card.

#4 changed the color of Lori's card to Riding Hood Red
I want to thank my fellow "Rubber Dubber" Lori L. for the swap card inspiration. Card #3 is almost identical to her's except we used the Word Window punch to add a "popped up" greeting. Lori's card had Dazzling Diamonds glitter added to the center of the flower, our's did not. I will add DD glitter to my card, and mentioned to the Sr. Group this is something they can do at home. And #2 "cheater" card uses a blank note card...well, it's blank on the inside but had the stripes printed on the outside. I chose Baha Breeze and Rose Red to coordinate with the stripes. Quick and easy! Card #1 don't you just love that bird? One of the ladies at Table 3 (Hi CR!) used colored pencils to enhance the bird on her card. I loved her idea! I hope Stampin' Up will carry their own line of exclusive embossing folders...I just LOVE them.

This "bandage tin" was used to hold a gift card. I created it for someone near and dear to my heart. (Hi EJ!) She loves WaWa milkshakes, so I got her a gift card and put it inside this personalized tin. Perfect fit! I just love personalizing these tins. So quick and easy. Taking the same idea for the Post-it note Key Ring (a few posts ago) I used the Together Forever and Defining Alphabets sets. Lots of pink made this very girly...but you could make it any theme you like. I did a tin with a cow theme this summer (Hi DD) and will be making lots for Christmas gifts.

For my Sr. Center class this week, I used some of the stamp sets that are currently on special from Stampin' Up! I personally LOVE Upsy Daisy. My Mom designed the Old Olive Z-Fold card...that was a big help...I was feeling tapped out and Mom stepped up to give me a hand. When you've been stamping as long as I have, it's had to come up with simple cards that aren't boring. The addition of the unique fold helped make the simple card more dramatic. Thanks Mom!
