Eat, drink and make cards!

I had a Stampin' Up party on Saturday. My friend Neena who is the SU demonstrator told me none of the Frisby women has had a party in a while. The girls are too busy and I think I haven't because I'm sure I own most everything they sell! lol But we got together anyway so I had to put out a spread. You know, if I didn't feed people, I could spend hundreds of dollars on stuff for myself! LOL It just wouldn't be as fun....
So, we had some bedgetables....

And we had other stuff that I didn't think to take a picture of like Frito Salad, sandwiches and fruit. My husband already looks at me like I'm nuts for taking pictures of everything so I can blog about it. LOL
Then it was time to have some dessert and I made our favorite and super easy Texas sheet cake...again! This is a crowd favorite so I have to make it whenever the girls come over.

I'll share the recipe later if I haven't posted it already. :o)
This is the first card we made. Neena makes everything so easy by precutting all the paper. We get to just stamp and play. I like the saying. You should be able to click on it to make it bigger.

Then we did this adorable card!

The flowers and leaves were done with their bigshot which is a die cutting machine/system. I don't have one but it's similar to the old Sizzex machine, but way better. Anyway, we cut those parts out with the machine. We also used it to emboss the dots on the white card stock and the little dots on the pink flowers. It is a cute card! Who doesn't love pink and black together? I'll probably never send it to anyone. Well, maybe I will but I have a hard time giving up the cute ones. hehe
Then we used the big shot and one of the dies to cut out these little matchboxes. They don't look like much here because we didn't decorate them but if you add a little ribbon, a sentiment and some chocolate, they're really cute.

So that was Saturday. Sunday was nothing exciting. Laundry and cleaning up the backyard some. Tending to my dying tomatoes.... more on those later.
