Weekend Retreat at the Crop-A-Doodle-Do

I was fortunate enough to enjoy another weekend at my favorite crafting place – the Crop-A-Doodle-Do – which is Indiana’s finest crafting Bed and Breakfast!  It is a farmhouse renovated into a crafter’s haven.  What a respite.  All our meals and snacks were made for us, and all we had to do was craft, relax, and reconnect with friends.  Here are some pictures of the weekend.

I planned to make 114 owl cards to to go along with the owl pun stamps I just bought.  After about 35 owl cards I had had enough of the tedious piecing and moved on to another project.

The owls were made with Stampin Up’s owl punch and the branch is from their bird punch.  I pieced everything together with my craft tweezers and Tombow’s Mono Multi Glue.

I borrowed the CADD’s Cricut Cartridge called Nifty Fifties and cut out all these terrific guitars as well as the phrases of “You Rock.”  I made these cards for OWH and thought the You Rock cards were perfect for deployed service folks to send home to their teenagers.

Now back to normal tomorrow with work, etc., but at least I am starting Monday feeling refreshed and rested.  Speaking of work – Missie, here is the card I dedicated to you for covering the weekend’s dictation for me.  Thank You – You Rock!
