Two bird cards and last chance for BLOG CANDY!

Here are a couple of cute little bird cards I made several weeks ago and just got around to photographing and posting (time flies!). This was the first time I actually played with SU's kraft paper - love it! - and my first card using CTMH's new felt shapes - love those little birds!


Don't forget to post a comment to my BLOG CANDY post below to be entered to win the blog candy . . . I'm drawing a name TOMORROW after my interview (3:15 pm Pacific). Wish me luck!

Point No Point Lighthouse

Just wanted to share this beautiful photo I took the other day. We took a little detour on our way home from my niece's birthday party in Woodinville on Sunday and stopped at Point No Point Lighthouse. Pretty neat, huh?!?!


Friend card using Emporium paper

A simple card I made the other day using CTMH's Emporium Level 2 paper pack. I punched the flower shape out of the side of the 4 piece paper square and then I popped up the flower to add more dimension - a little hard to see in this photo, but I hope you get the idea!


Thanks for looking!
My good consultant blog friend, Trish, just started up her blog Scrapping Playground of Dreams. If you get a chance, hop over there and check it out . . . she's just getting started, but has some great artwork up already! Way to go, Trish!

You still have 3 days to comment on the Blog Candy posting below to be entered in the blog candy drawing!!!! I'm randomly selecting a winner on Friday, Aug. 28 after my job interview!!!

Thanks for stoping by!

Jump! card

I made this card with a Close To My Heart stamp set called Jump! I first bought this stamp set back when I became a consultant with CTMH (about 3 years ago) and this is the first time I've used it!!! I thought it was an appropriate theme for this time of year as we are just about ready to pick the apples from our Gravenstein tree!!! Enjoy!


Don't forget to comment below for BLOG CANDY - random winner will be selected on Friday!!!

Ok . . . as promised, here is a pile of blog candy I just put together. Some of the fun stuff in this package: over 20 fun chipboard shapes, metal halloween embellishment, flowers, leaves, plastic spiders, misc. brads, extra large buttons, stickers, ribbon, metal label tags, ghost alphabets by Heidi Swapp and a pile of misc. cards I've made over the years.


So I have an interview on Friday, August 28 for a job I really want with the school district. I'm already employed with the district, but this would be a full time job instead of the 3 hours a day I have now. To be entered in the drawing for this fun assortment of goodies, just leave me a comment below about an interview experience you have had or . . . . just say "Hi."

I'll randomly draw a winner on Friday, August 28 - after my interview and let you know how it went!

Good Luck . . . . and thanks for visiting my blog! More creations to come . . . :-) Jeani

This is a layout I did a couple of weeks ago ~ my first time using the felt diecuts from Close To My Heart. Sorry it's not such a great photo . . . I took several and they were all blurry . . this was the best one of the bunch.

The photo was one of my boys and I that was taken for an advertisement in our local newspaper for the childrens and maternity shop I used to own. I used a felt button as a pull tab on my journaling behind the photo.


Stop back by tomorrow for some BLOG CANDY!!!! Have to give something back to those of you that have stuck with me during the sloooooowwwww times on my blog! Thank you!
