These are the samples for my Love is in the Air class tomorrow. Right now I plan to still hold the class despite the weather's interference with everyday life this week. We will be making 5 cards and three treat packages. The class is from 6:30 to 9:30 and is $15 for the supplies. Unless I have some cancellations tomorrow, tomorrow's class is full, but I do have a completely open session for Sunday afternoon from 1-4 pm.

This is my favorite card for the class. It was inspired by one that Jen Carter made. I changed up the colors a little and used Linear Sentiments for the background dots on the black piece.

Speaking of weather, we were very blessed at our house. We only got 3/4" of ice and our power stayed on the entire time. Thank goodness because my kids are so spoiled with their electronic entertainment! They have been off school since early dismissal on Monday afternoon and are out again tomorrow. I'm hoping by tomorrow afternoon that the roads might be melted enough to make a trip to the post office and the store. And for those who live up north and are amazed that everything just shuts down around here from a little snow or ice -- we didn't believe it when we moved here either. But the road departments and the drivers here are truly not equipped to handle winter weather! The ice was beautiful on the trees. Here's the view from my back door.

The Magalogue!

It's almost here! Here's a picture of the cover that has been shared by some demonstrators who already have their copies. Mine should be here on Monday and I can't wait to see it. There are 47 new stamp sets, new samples, new accessories, and it just looks like it will be fun to browse!

Remember you can get your copy for free by placing a $30 before January 31 or attending my January 30 Love is in the Air class. Or you can get a copy for $3 with shipping by emailing me.

You will be able to order from this magalogue on February 1.

Yes, I know that it is winter and almost Valentine's Day, but I wanted to share with you one of my favorite fall cards. I made 75 of these cards as invitations for a friend for her annual fall party. It was only my second time to be paid to make requested cards. I spent two weeks agonizing that this design was too simple so I came up with about 6 or 8 others to show her. Of course, she chose this one -- the first one that I made! Always go with your gut.
