More from the STARS Stamp Club meeting..

I played some more with the ticket designs from our STARS meeting on Thursday night and turned them into birthday cards that I thought I'd share with you today.

This one I colored with Copic markers (without doing all the pretty shading) and spritzed with Marshmallow Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. The top ticket is a stamp and I used the Happy Birthday from the Stampin' Up! Warmest Regards Set in each corner and on the ticket. I mounted each piece on black card stock, added some ribbon and some bling and ta-da..

No matter what I've tried, I can not get the true color of the base of this card to show even close to the color it is but I'm going to post it anyway. The ticket images were all colored with Smooch then distressed.. Punched the edge of the card with a Martha Stewart punch and tied some SU! ribbon on.. Shazam, all done!

I'm planning to work on another project we started at STARS before the Christmas holidays and I'll share that when I finish it..

Be blessed and thanks for stopping by..

Happy Friday!!

Well, shucky darn... has it really been over a month since I told you A Little Bit of Me?  I have to say I have a new admiration to all the bloggers who actually post daily!  Am I too old to learn how to manage my time better?  I surely hope not.  I've never been a list maker or clock watcher but maybe I should be.. Ok, teach this old as time dog new tricks!

I went to my monthly stamp club meeting at Lovely Linda's last night and did we ever have lots of fun!  Linda has the most amazing studio in her home and I have to keep remembering this commandment: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."  

We try to do a project at each meeting and last night Linda supplied us with a sponge, a dusting brush, a colorful variety of ink pads, post-it notes for masking, blank tickets and a 2.5 x 4 piece of card stock with ticket images all over it and a variety of stamps to choose from for decorating the tickets..

...and here is what I turned out.

The two tickets are attaced using pop-dots and the card is attached to black card stock.  No two looked alike but all were great!  Thanks Linda for another night of fun!
Also, thanks Michele and Laurie.. for the nudge to get back to the land of blogging! :) Now let's work on Sharon.

Be blessed and thanks for stopping by..
