We went to our annual racing banquet last night and had a nice time.  It sure was cold out though!   Darn....I am so ready for a little warmer temps.  This cold is hard on all of our animals- so making extra sure they have water, extra bedding and extra food.  

This morning I'm headed out the door now to meet some old co-worker friends for coffee.  I'm looking forward to catching up with them.  Then Manda and I are going with Sarah and her mom- shopping for brides maid dresses.  When I get home tonight I'll be finishing cutting card stock and packing up for my stampin' parties that I have tomorrow. 

I hope you have a SUPER Saturday!! 
Happy Stamping!


  1. Do you have any measurements for your purple flower cards - one with the lotus and one with the painted petals. You mentioned you may have more info. later. Is it a gatefold? It is so beautiful I have wanted to do it for awhile now with my stampin up guests. Would you be willing to share the measurements please. Thank you for your inspiration. I do enjoy your site a lot.

  2. I am glad that you like my blog Mary. Thanks for checking out my projects that I post each day. For the Lotus Blossom card shown above- here are the measurements. It is not a gatefold card. I did put each measurement in order of layering for you to be able to do.

    *Blackberry Bliss- 5 1/2 x 8 1/2- fold in half & cut off 2" along the front/outside card front; Emboss along the inside front piece using the Delicate Designs embossing folder;
    *Very Vanilla- 4 x 5 1/4 (inside piece);
    *Perfect Plum- 5 x 3 1/4;
    *Blackberry Bliss- 4 3/4 x 3;
    *Perfect Plum- 3 1/4 x 2 3/4;
    *Very Vanilla- 3 x 2 1/2.
    *Then used a strip of Very Vanilla to stamp words onto & punch out with Extra Large Oval punch;
    *Ribbon- approx 4" tied in a knot & attached with a glue dot

    I will put the measurements for the other purple flower in the comments on that card.
