I have a problem with keeping focused when I am making multiples of something. So last night my 2 year old was sitting on my lap while I was making the pilgrims for my craft faire. After about 10 of them my mind started to wander & this is what my pilgrims turned in to. LOL! This card is dedicated to all of you that have encouraged me & left me so many kind messages. You all make me smile!

Girls Night Out Projects

My stampers club meets once a month & we make 2 projects. One technique & one whatever I feel like. Lol! Everyone is welcome to come even non club members. For club members its free & for anyone else its just $5. Our technique this month was brayered sky so this is the card I designed to showcase that. Then I just had to share my punched pumpkin & scallop envelope box with them. TFL!
