 Our crafty group got together for April birthdays yesterday - there were 5 of us - Ruth P, Sally M, Patti G, Cheryl G and myself.  We often share gifties - usually homemade - (sometimes bought), so below are some of the gifties we shared yesterday.  

Patti - chocolate - chocolate - the girls best friend, and the cute handmade container, Sally individual little trash bins (on wheels as well), they were put to use yesterday during our crafting get together.  Cheryl brought a handmade pillow box stuffed with hand tied little bows in a rainbow of colors.  She ties the best little bows and they will be greatly appreciated when I need that little bow as an embellishment.  

Thank you for a great day dear friends.

April - End of Month

 Our little group of crafters had 3 birthdays in April so we did an April birthday lunch/craft session.  Here are the projects we shared - 

Left top Ruth, Right top Sally, left bottom Patti, Right bottom Cheryl, the instructions were to make them simple, quick and easy, and I think everyone followed instructions.  We had 5 cards done in 2 hours, (mine to follow).  

Lunch consisted of homemade "Panera" chicken and wild rice soup - which everyone said they liked.  Betty Crocker and I made cheddar biscuits and Sally brought Better than Sex Cake.  

So much fun to get together with our favorite hobby and great friends.

Cards from Cheryl's Class

 I have really built up my stash of cards the last couple of months but still when I see a new idea or technique I "have" to try and make it.  My friend Cheryl has had two classes and is getting ready to teach another one - and here are a couple of cards from her class.  

I have already mailed out the other cards we made in class - they were masculine cards and I needed two man cards - how handy to have them on hand.  Both of these cards used SU stamps - love the little doggie - on the inside I just put Woof - so I can use it for any occasion.  

I have a free afternoon to "play" a little in my craft room so off I go.
