Happy Thursday!  How y’all doin’?  Thanks for your responses yesterday on my class project.  I met with the girls from Lavender Sentiments yesterday and I’ve made a few changes to the project.  Those will come later in the week.  We did decided on everything else though.  My class will be on Monday, December 14, 2009, 6:00 pm., at Lavender Sentiments on Charlestown Road in New Albany.  The class fee is $20 and you can sign up by calling 812/945-0790.

Now for today’s card.  I started working on this last night and needed to wait until this morning to finish it.  While browsing StarLit Studio last week, I noticed that Cindy had the recipe for Tim’s snow listed on her site.  Since I had all the required elements to make the snow, I decided to try my hand at it.  That’s why I needed to wait . . . the snow needed to dry before I could go any further!


The pinecone was water colored with Distress Re-Inkers, masked and then the branches were stamped.  I die cut/embossed the image using Spellbinders™ Labels 8 before I added the snow to the ornament.  The fun part for me was adding the carol, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, as a background panel.  My grandfather’s sister was a teacher in a one room school house and played the organ for their church.  I happen to have the old pump organ that she played along with all her hymnals.  I remember singing from these hymnals as a little girl.  I had put them away a few years ago and couldn’t find them (that memory lapse thing) a few months back when I was looking for them.  This morning I went into the storage room and pulled them right out of storage . . . yep, that memory thing!  I can’t tell you the name of the hymnal, as it’s been battered and torn, but some of the others were published in 1920.  That should give us some guess at the age  . . . somewhere between 80 to 90 years old.

I copied the song onto regular printer paper, added some Old Paper Distress Ink, and then lightly added Vintage Photo around the edges.  You can see I even left the Hymnal No. on the page.

Good morning!  This is my third Sunday of Flourishes Limelight Designer and here’s the card I have posted on the Flourishes Newsletter today.


I have loved this Lilac Set since I first saw it.  The set reminds me of when I was a little girl and my grandmother’s neighbor had 2 Lilac bushes in her front yard.  The way they grew, there was a section in the middle that we could crawl through and hide in.  I don’t know that my grandmother’s like it too well, when we did that, but as long as we kept the balls out of her backyard all was good!  I remember her being a little cranky at times, but then she was the neighbor that taught me to knit . . . who knows.  Anyhoo, I’ve always had a fondness for lilacs!
