Three Awesome Cards!

Yesterday was my Post Convention Card Class and I had seven wonderful ladies attend. I was so caught up in talking about the new products that I forgot to take a picture of them. It’s too bad because I had a brand new face, Joyce Schmitt thanks to Jenifer Stephens! I also had a someone who hasn’t been to class in a very long time, welcome back Sonya Pardo!

Below are the three awesome cards we made.

I love the new Expressions Thinlets Dies and they seemed to be a favorite at the class. Contact me for a complete list of the supplies used to make this card.

What’s Your Bowling Style?

I asked my husband what he wanted to do for Father’s Day and he said he wanted to go bowling, so bowling we went! My daughter couldn’t join so it turned out to be a Father & Son Bowling Day. As you can see my husband and son have very unique bowling styles. They had a great time formed Life Moment Memories!

My husband ordered a plate of Nachos Grande, they weren’t kidding when they wrote GRANDE on the menu! He was up for the challenge and he made quite a dent!

Bloomin Bouquet

Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There’s no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.

As if that weren’t enough, the kit contains a “baker’s dozen”! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn’t normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you’d like to give a little “thank you”!

Ordering information: Item 134542 $12.95

Available starting April 29, while supplies last.
