If you have arrived here from Lori’s Blog, you are on the right track. For my project, I used Balloon Ride (X7180B) and Banner Wishes (B1438.) The Hot Air Balloon is from a retired stamp set.
I used the balloon from this set rather than the beautiful Hot Air Balloon in the current Idea Book because I wanted to use a coloring technique that is not often used anymore. I used my Prisma Wax Based Pencils. Because of the wax in the “lead” the technique used to blend the colors is totally different. This is one of cards and the technique I will be teaching in May. I shall share more about the technique as I develop the class.
It is time to head over to Andrea’s Blog to see what she has created for us. As always, should you get lost along the way, you can always return to Joyce’s Blog to find a list of all the participants. Enjoy the Hop. For Now, Happy Crafting!

This is a card that I made yesterday for my upcoming card workshop. It is the warm up card and features the CTMH Stamp Set called Banner Wishes (B1438) and the paper packet called Balloon Ride.
I love Banner Wishes because it contains the frame along with 6 very useful sentiments for cards and scrapbooking.
Now, on to my trip…where did I go? Sunny Florida! A dear friend has recently moved there and after all I’ve been through in the past few months I figured I owed it to myself to go for a visit. Those of you that know me well are aware of my love of birds. So, I had to share some of the winged friends I saw.
And, last but not least…The Gulf of Mexico.
For Now, Happy Crafting!

I haven’t had a chance to post must recently but I wanted to share a project we made in our April Workshops. I have to admit that I got the idea from the recent Joyful Stars Blog Hop. Krista is so talented and creates such wonderful projects. Anyway, I modified her idea and made it work as a “bonus” project for my workshops.

This is a fun card that features an image from the Lollydoodle Workshop on the Go and one of the new CTMH Embossing Folders. I really like the new embossing folders. Yes, we all have a ton of them already, but the CTMH ones are 5 x 7 inches and have a slit that allows you to slid paper through them in order to emboss a 12 inch sheet. How great is that?!?
Time to head back to class prep…I just wanted to share my latest creation. Stop on by my website to check out the embossing folders. Oh by the way, don’t forget the great CTMH deal running this month. If you sign up as a Memory Saver’s Team Member (i.e., become a CTMH Consultant for $99, you will also receive a free Cricut Cartridge of your choice. You can visit my website for those details, too. For Now, Happy Crafting!

By now, you know me…I have to change things up just a tad but this card is very similar to one of the cards that comes in the kit. Each WTOG contains several sheets of pattern paper and card stock, embellishments, a D sized stamp set and an instruction guide. For $24.95 they are a terrific deal.
This is one of the cards that we will be making at my April Workshops. Nice and spring like…what do you think? Check out my website to see the full like of CTMH workshops on the Go. For Now, Happy Crafting!
