Creating for fun...


I was lucky enough to have a girl's day in with my friend, Shirley, last week.
Here are the two cards we made:

This first card used the Lawn Fawn dies and stamps from the 'Spooktacular' set.
Pretty cute, right?

This card came from a tutorial on Dawn Griffith's blog, and uses Stampin'Up! products.
You pull at the top, and the top two layers slide up.  What a fun idea!

Shirley and I always have a good time together - this time, we got pedi's, then went to her house for lunch and creative time.

It was a good day - we hadn't gotten together since before my surgery, so it was almost a month
between seeing each other!

I'm feeling better each day. Hopefully, I'll be back on schedule in the next week or two,
posting regularly again, and commenting more often!

Thanks for your patience,

Patti J.

I have been itching to get into my Halloween stamps, now you have really inspired e. Love the lime green and the sweet images. The second card is absolutely gorgeous.
Love Dawn's blog, always lots of beautiful ideas.

I didn't know you had surgery, sorry to hear that, but glad you are on the mendl Hope each day is better, and spending time with a dear friend is just what you needed, glad you had the chance to do that. Thinking of you.........

Both are great cards. I've made one Halloween card, but I can't wait to really get to work on them. It'll have to wait a while, though, as we will be traveling in September.

Great cards, Patti. I love the bottom one and how you have it decorated. I never noticed the tutorial. It must have been on a day I deleted because I was 96 blogs behind in reading. LOL. Ever happen to you? I might buy that lovely flower stamp you used.
