More cute Halloween cards and bag

Hello and happy Saturday!  Today I want to share some cute projects that my super talented downline, Shirley, created for her club.  I am not a Halloween fan but I know that many of you enjoy making Halloween projects so this is for you.  Enjoy!!! Forgive the cards on their side; I can never seem to figure out why it opts to have them upright and then sideways.  LOL!

Happy stamping!

Hello and happy Thursday!  It is another favorite day in the Nichols day!  I love to see what fabulous deals I can get when I pair coupons and sales.  I am always bummed when it is a sad ad day and there are not many deals.  LOL!

This is the card that the Blendabilites club will be creating this week.

Daydream Medallions Fancy Fold card

Hello and happy Wednesday!  It is my favorite day because all of the ads come out today and I can check out the sales (pair with coupons, of course)!  My daughter is just sure that I should have added pearls instead of rhinestones but I think that she just wanted to play with them.  LOL!  I  noticed that her stuffed puppy ended up with rhinestones on her ears as faux earrings.

I CASED this card from this website.  She did a smashing job!  I opted to change a few colors and supplies.

Use 12x12 Basic Black cardstock for the base and cut it at 5 1/2" by 11 1/8".
Score it at 3", 4 3/4", 6 1/2", and 8 1/4".

Happy stamping!

Gifts from the Heart package

Hello and happy Monday!  It has been a busy day already with a quick trip into town to pick up meds and redraw blood for a "do over".  LOL!  I am convinced that there is a vampire in the back room because I have track marks on my arm from all of the lab work!  On the way home a "dualie" truck went barreling past me and threw up a rock onto my windshield...ack!  Now I have to make a trip the glass company for a repair.  I was minding my own business and boom!  Oh well, that is life. 

Hope you enjoy the goodies that my Friend in Gifts from the Heart (like a secret pal but for demonstrators) sent to me.  She is such a wonderful friend!

Happy stamping!
