What could be better than Twins for Valentines Day?

Ok, let me clarify a little.  I don't mean Twins as in a date, or as in new Grandbabies.  Well they are kind of new Grand kids.  Charlie's friend went to a live stock auction yesterday and bought 4 baby goats, yes I said goats, or Kids.  When he got home with them his wife only wanted 2 so Charlie got a call from his friend and said he would take the two that they didn't want.  So today while Dawn was at school, Grandpa and I took Miss Hailey to the Base to pick up the Kids.  Here are some pics.

 Hailey found that they like to suck on her finger.  She thought that was pretty funny.
 Here Charlie is telling Hailey about the babies.  They are 14 days old, so they will need to be bottle fed for about another month or so.

 When we got them to our house it was time to feed them so Hailey helped Mom give them a bottle.
Charlie was telling Dawn to enjoy the ride home with the goats in the car.  They were so loud on our way home from the base, that Hailey asked if we could shut them up, or turn the radio on loud.
They are very cute.  Guess I'm gonna have to scrapbook the twins.

Next Saturday's Card Class in The Dalles, OR

Here are 3 of the 4 cards I am making for class next Saturday.

I am using Lucy Level 2 papers and Smoothie, White Daisy and Colonial White Card Stock.  I borrowed the Thanks A Latte stamp from my friend Jeanie.  I stamped it in Grey Wool ink and colored it in with Dessert Sand and Creme Brulee markers. 

 I got a free SVG cut File the other day for the Shamrock and I found a tutorial on how to make the Leprechaun hat, it was from last year.  I have seen the Leprechaun punch art on Splitcoaststampers before, but came up with my own version. 
This is the New Quick Cards-Butterfly A1120 I inked it up with Sky then rocked the stamp on Lagoon before I stamped it onto White Daisy card stock.  I layered it onto Lagoon card stock and then on the sky that I had embossed with Swiss Dots.  I inked the edges of the butterfly paper, the White Daisy and the Sky papers with Sky ink.  I love how the Butterfly turned out.  

My friend Jeanie came over to play today, she got a lot done.  I did too but it took me a lot longer to do it.   I am going to start having crops at my house soon, I will let you know when.  I think I can have 6 people here with plenty of room.

Last Saturday's Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book Kick off was a huge success.

The day started off a little rocky, several of us showed up at the Somerset Assisted Living center in Glad Stone, OR and found that when they booked the room they mis-read the Previous bookings times as 9:00 am - 12:00am as being done at Noon, so they tried to get us another room but they were all booked.  Luckily one of our new members and her friend knew of a place we could move the event to.  They even called Round Table Pizza in West Linn and they allowed us to bring our potluck in with us.  The Staff was AWESOME, even told us to leave anything we don't want and they would take care of it.  We had a total of 13 ladies show up and we all had a great time.  8 of us played Bunko and then we all took a table and spread out our stuff and went to work. I forgot to take my camera, but Shannon took pictures and sent then to me.  Here they are.

 I put some small stamp sets in the Bunko Prize bags, along with some embellishments and everyone was so excited to get them.  Shannon asked a question every 30 minutes and gave away 15 D size stamp sets.  The questions ranged from Do you have pets, to Are you wearing colored Panties?  
 Shannon ordered Cup cakes for our party.
 Jeri and Tiffany
 Julie and Helen
 Megan, Wendy, Lynne and Me in the red.
 Dawn, Megan, Lynne and me again.

 I made some cute little leprechaun hats, for my next class.  Here they are;

I will show you what I end up doing with them soon.

We had so much fun, and met several new friends to scrap with.

Prizes for Bunko.

Here are the little bags that I have been working on for the Prizes for the Bunko game on Saturday.  These came together so easy today and were so much fun to make.

If you have ever played Bunko, you would know that there are 4 prizes, Most Bunko's, Most Wins, Most Losses and Last Bunko.  Each bag has a tag stating which winner they go to.
Here is a close up of the "Most Wins" bag.
The decorative paper is from the New Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book, it is called Lucy (X7149B) and I used the small flower from the Card Word Puzzle C1494 Stamp set.  I made a cut file of the small flower for my Cricut so I didn't have to hand cut all of them.  I used a Permanent marker on White brads to make the center of the flower.  The bag and tag is from The CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I used Cotton Candy, Pear, Blush, Colonial White, Vanilla Cream and Creme Brulee card stock.  

I would love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment.
