Happy Sunday!!!

I was so tired last night that I didn't have a chance to post anything. I was up until late on Friday night because I was so excited with the goodies that Chris had sent to me. Saturday was a busy day, but I had a lot of fun. Had to make 10 bento's for the kiddies on Blade's Soccer Team for their first game. Then I headed on over to my new friend Dawne's house for her Sillouette Class. : ) She served up some yummy corn chowder and rolls. Also got a chance to chat with Dawne, Teri, and Cheryl. I was so lucky to get some personal tips from the experts! Then I made a quick run to J's Knicknacks to get my digs in to their 30% off sale. I got some really good deals and although I wanted to play with my new stuff in the evening, I couldn't stay focused and my eyes were getting sleepy. But I did get up relatively early this morning and worked on this slider card. The printed cardstock was part of the package of goodies that Chris had sent to me.



I struggled to make this slider card...I had made one at stamp camp several months ago and then I remade it one more time after that. I followed the instructions, but must've not read it well...my first attempt left me with a card that wouldn't open. Duh... The image is a Whipper Snapper Design. I love this little girl holding a kitty. I thought she was adorable.


This card was my first attempt at using this Hello Kitty friend Sizzix die cut. I had bought her some time ago. I also used the Bigz Top Note Die Cut. I love my Big Shot!


This card is long over due. I'm going to mail this out to Sara. She had a contest on her blog. You had to make 10 RAKs and send them out. It was good way for me to work on a bunch of cards and to re-connect with friends who I hadn't called in a while. It was a great idea, but sadly only two of us entered, and I was randomly picked to be the winner. It was a 50/50 chance, so the odds were good! She sent me a Unity stamp set called, Fanciful Dots and several packages of colored dew drops. So pretty. I made this card using one of the stamps that she sent me. I hope she likes the card.

Well, that's all for now. I started on some other cards, but still need to put them together. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday...
