My hands haven't been idle!

I haven't made any cards lately but I haven't been sitting idle either. I made some fleece blankets for my granddaughters who are coming to Arizona for a visit on Sunday. This was my first attempt at these "no sew" blankets & I was pleased with how they turned out. I do not like sewing at all, so these are right up my alley! Then, yesterday I went to the silver shop here at the park & made a ring (with a lot of help from a lovely gentleman called Jim). I did manage to do all the soldering....without burning myself even once! Life here at Silveridge RV park is wonderful. We have good friends from home here with us but have also made many new friends.

Finally....some new cards!

Life has been pretty busy since we arrived in Mesa on Feb. 1st, but I finally got to make some cards! The first one I made for a friend here in the park for her me, she enjoys a glass of wine so this Emerson Quillen image is perfect! The rest are cards I made at a class which was Stampin Up. It was a fun afternoon & I got to meet some wonderful ladies from all over the US & Canada.

Craft withdrawal!

Hi everyone; I am now in Mesa, Arizona (arrived on Wed.) & haven't had any crafting time since arriving. I am starting to go into withdrawal! If I don't get my hands on some paper, digis, prismacolors & ribbon soon I think I'll go crazy! Hope to have some time tomorrow to create & get into some of the great challenges going on out there!
