This is a card I made the other day with some new patterned paper that I found at a garage sale. She was cleaning out her stash - her loss was my gain! I really love this one because it has a chair on it. The image is from SU! and it is a 6x6 square card.

I made this card for my brother for his birthday. He is the grilling king.
The sketch is based on Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge 185 Here is a link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/
I used some old Creative Memories plaid paper and stamps from a set by Fiskars called Celebrate.
On Saturday I met up with ladies that I do card swaps with on the Paper Crafts Magazine website. We were all from MN & WI and we met up in Blaine at Pretty in Ink. We all brought a project to demo with a new technique and brought enough stuff for all of us to do one. It was really fun and I learned a lot of new techniques that I might not have ever tried.
We did a waterfall card, a Halloween card with a tricky fold, a vellum cup card(my demo), a pop-up flower pot card, a butterfly resist card with a brayer & a kaleidoscope ink pad, a hanging monkey card and my first ever ATC!. I even won a prize in a drawing that one of the ladies had. Thanks Cindy!
We are planning on getting together again soon. Above are the projects we did ^

We went to Como Zoo a couple of weeks ago & took TONS of photos. We had such a fun day! I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a day at the zoo so much. We took a lot of photos of plants and flowers. They also had the butterfly exhibit open which we had never seen before.
Here are some of my favs.
