Stamping and Tea with Fussy and Fancy Girls!

Last night was my class with the Fussy and Fancy Founders, we are all such great friends in real life outside our blogging worlds. We have so much fun every month. April always has a spread of such yummy food and the most delicious tea! Seeing April’s cards in real life is a treat in itself. They are breathtaking. We sit in her beautiful living room and eat then we stamp. Last night we made these little spring baskets. The tutorial was on the Just Magnolia challenge blog a few weeks ago and I wanted to make it then, but couldn’t find the time.

***HOUSE UPDATE***

We found a house, it’s such a huge stress relief off my shoulders. My kids get to stay in the same school, it’s only 6 miles away from the house I’m in.Still a 3 bedroom, huge fully gated front and back yard, has a brand new stove and built in microwave. My only downer is I will loose my stamp room. So I need to get rid of some stuff cause I wont have room for it. Oh well. at least I don’t have to sleep on some ones couch! I will be packing all week and move on the 27th and 28th of February.

I should be back to posting in about 2 weeks!

Here are the challenges for my project.

Bizzy Bec – Create a little something

Pink Elephant – Ribbon

Spoon full of Sugar – Spring

Simon Says Stamp – 3 embellishments(brads, ribbon, roses) 2 patterned papers (basket and butterflies) 1 image,

Stamp something - Spring

Mindy, learning these baskets from you was so much easier (and more fun) than following a tutorial! Thank you for a wonderful project! I'm going to finish mine, I promise; I'm such a slowpoke! I'm so glad you found a house. Looks like a window (or two) opened after that door closed!
Hugs,
April

Martinas Welt said...

Mindy, you made a real eye-candy!!! This is lovely!!
And I am glad to read you have found a house!! But oh...no stamping room of your own? I do not have one as well and my house is a mess most of the time, as I just hate to pack things away when I am in the middle of a card...sigh! But there is a saying (a stamp I have!) "Gone stampin - will cook and clean late" ;)
All the best for your moving!!
Martina
