Toonie Thursday

I usually don't go to Scrapbooker's Paradise twice in one week.  But I thought that this week's Toonie Thursday looked like lots of fun.  I'm so glad I went as Sandy showed us how to use this Martha Stewart Punch in a cool way.

Christmas All Year Long - April

Sometimes I wonder where the time it is the end of April already!!  For this months Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop I used a card kit from the Card Kit Swap that is hosted every month over at the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group.  It was a great kit full of fun goodies to use.  I even have enough stuff left over to make another card.

Just a quick and huge THANK YOU to Debbie (the owner of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group) and Diana Crick (owner of the Magnolia-licious Store) as well as Julie (the wonderful lady who organizes this blop hop.

Now let's get on with it.  If you didn't start at the beginning you need to go to the Christmas All Year Long Blog.  If you've come from Peggie's wonderful blog you are on the right track.  From here you will go to Tanja's Christmas Card.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Tag Time Tuesday

Another great tag at Tag Time Tuesday hosted by Scrapbooker's Paradise.  Viola used so many techniques in this tag and the pictures just don't do it any justice.

Black and White with Copics

Last night I took a wonderful class at Scrapbooker's Paradise with Sandy.  I so enjoy taking her classes.  I always find her classes very infomative.  For this class the focus was creating Black and White with Copics.  I am so pleased with the results, although I found it super hard to do.  I'm so glad I took this I need to practice.
