Is it March already????

I can't believe that it's March! Where did February go? And how about January? Before you know it we will be hot and sweaty and ready for the winter again! Today it's supposed to be 48 degrees! I think that will put us into the spring mood!!!

Yesterday I traveled to Wisconsin for club/workshop. It was so much fun! We laughed our heads off and created...and ate, of course. Our theme was glitz and surprise there! We created three cards...Here's the first one:

This card reminded us how wonderful Dazzling Diamonds are...that sparkle you get from them is awesome! Who doesn't love it???? Unfortunately I forgot my liquid glue at home and we had to use glue sticks...well, the ladies were wonderful and "went with the flow"! We managed to get the glitter to stick and to look very sparkly anyway. Here is the second card:

This one used the sticky hearts from the demo bulk-order...I am addicted to the sticky letters..I wish that SU made ALL kinds of shapes: circles, snowflakes, shamrock (although as Jeanne pointed out yesterday, stick three hearts together for a shamrock), birds, stars, etc. Wouldn't that be fun? I used the chunky glitter from the occasions sticks like a champ! Here's a variation on the original:

(The white chunky glitter is much prettier in person....)

Finally, here is my third card. It is a direct case from Jacki on Dauber Diva night...(Love that card, Jacki!) It is too cute and so easy to make. I used chipboard and some of SU's fine glitter to cover it. Don't you love that background stamp? I love the scratchy look it gives to the paper...I can really see using this background with a lot of things!

I am not really loving the pictures today...I think I had my light positioned in a funny space...but re-do them? No way! I want to get them out there so you can see them!!!

Next month is 3-D items! WOW! I have my little beady brain working hard on those!!! I have some great ideas already. Let me know if you want to join us...we would love to have you.

Well, I am starting to get ready for CKU. I will be going on Wednesday, March 12th. I am going to meet two of my creative heroes - Ali Edwards and Tim Holtz. I can't believe it. It will be four long days of creating but I guess I can do it (lol). I haven't even started gathering my materials yet. I guess I should get going, huh?

Well, thanks for looking and check back soon. I have several other things I wanted to post but haven't yet had a minute to do so! I will try and get those up later this week....

The last card is my favorite.

I have a question for Queen of Sparkle: How is her stamp room coming? Haha...
