Last weekend was so bittersweet. Some crafty ladies and I visited the Crop-A-Doodle-Do one last time before they closed for good. You probably know how much I enjoyed my crafty weekends there, and I am really going to miss the farmhouse and the terrific folks who worked there. Also, I think we witnessed one of the most spectacular sunsets ever with its fiery reddish-orange glow cast all across the farm. I will miss the serenity and peacefulness found only in the country.
Anyhow, I was able to get a start on my Christmas cards but they will be a work in progress until I finally mail them out in December. There are a lot of steps to them, but I think in the long run they will turn out really pretty. It was fun to break out the heat embossing tools and supplies once again and even though it can be a little messy, the end result is so classy and beautiful.
In contrast to my poinsettias, Judy was working on a summer project and used the napkin transfer technique that we learned last weekend a Stampaway. So cute!
After a while I was weary of playing with the poinsettias, so I happily broke into my newest Stampin Up set called Secret Garden. With a little inspiration from Pinterest I made these cheerful-looking cards. I was really happy with the way they turned out.
Well, I guess our Crop-A-Doodle-Do fun is over but looking back we learned a lot from each other and made a lot of fun memories. Thanks, ladies, for making it so terrific!
