This was taken March 2014.
The Journey is long and continues and will for the rest of my life. As I am coming up to my 53rd birthday I am proud to say that I am still keeping off the weight. I have gained a few pounds but I am not out of control. 
I made this box card because of seeing so many on Pinterest
All products are from Stampin UP!

I haven't used my Copic markers in a long time. 
It was fun to get them out again for this card.

Today was Caitie's 19th Birthday. I love this girl with all my heart. She has made so proud. 
I made a Minion card for her. 
She is in college for Integrated Animation so I thought she would love an animated card.
The money she received tucked nicely into the pop up mechanism.

Card Class

Last night was my turn to come up with a class. I decided to do a brayer class. I found a great card on line and it was made by Kerri Metzger. She gives credit to other people also. That is the crazy thing about sharing your art. It will get cased and the credit could go back to many people so it is hard to really find out who the ORIGINAL creator was. Then of course it even get crazier now with You Tube and Pinterest. So if you were the original creator of the technique and I have thought they were beautiful enough to copy let me know.
I think my father is getting this one for fathers day
The next cards are all done with the same colours of ink pads yet they all look different.

This next card is an original and I really like how it turned out.
I have started having card classes again and this has been the class I have been teaching. Today is the last class using these desgins. I have been inspired by two other card makes for the next 2 cards. They are simular to these but not exact card.

The next card is an original and my friend Bonnie helped create it with me.
I love the ribbon I found that says if the crown fits wear it.
If you look at the stamp it has a crown at the top so I had to get the ribbon.
There is a jewel in the big crown at the top and a little jewel on the crown that is on the ribbon.
