Well actually I am at work today. We are closed but I am here while they put together our new office furniture. I should be finished with all the work I have to do today by 11:00 or so and then will have the rest of the day to hop. I sure am glad a lot of the Ippity friends signed up today!! The two cards I am sharing today are ones that I will be teaching next Saturday for our women's retreat at church. I had to have designs that were simple enough to teach 35 beginners!! I wanted something that would keep everyone busy even while they are waiting to share the stamps (since I don't have one for each). And something that they would all be able to send easily (nothing lumpy that will cost extra at the post office). So here is what I came up with - I was inspired by Michelle Stancil's beautiful card for this first one. I used some A2Z paper I already had and my beautiful Devoted set. The second card you will probably recognize because I was asking for advise on it. I ended up just adding another strip of the dark gray which I already embossed (and I will have my embosser there so they see how it works.) Then all they will have to do is just sand it a bit, do the stamping and glue it all together. I think the purple and gray will work for a valentine for a man and the pink of course is more girly. Thanks so much for all the advice. Have a great week!
