Twelve Tags of 2013- April

Still nine days of the month left, and I have finished my tag for this month. Actually, I couldn't quit at one so I made four background tags and finished two of them off to this month's tag. I didn't have the stamp that Tim used, so I improvised with a couple of his butterfly stamps from other sets. Of course I couldn't find my Clearly For Art film, so really did a lot of organizing while on the hunt, but alas, I found all three colors!!! Yeah. Couldn't find the Distress Paints either except the metallic because I just got those last week, but finally surfaced them after much digging and cussing. My room is such a shame! Who can come over and straighten it up for me so that everything has a place??? Anyone???? I really like how these came out and had a good time making them.

Close To My Heart- April gathering

Wow, this coming Wednesday night is the gathering for this month and I have just now gotten around to getting my projects made. I visitted a bloghop early this month and found tons of inspiration there from other consultants. What eye candy! Anyway, here are the three projects Iwill be making for the hostess that night and demoing them for the group. The one with the doily and bird stamp will be the one that they will all be creating as their make and take that night. I always make three projects and then have all of the gals make one themselves afterwards while I take the orders and they nibble on refreshments. It is a really enjoyable evening and they all seem to love it. We have seven regular gals and a couple that attend most of the time. I am loving it! Sure am having a ball bonding with my much ignored until recently Cricut Expressions machine and playing with the two wonderful cartridges exclusive to CTMH. Used it a ton on these cards. Fun, fun stuff on them both!
