Card Samples


Hiya sistahs,

Still struggling with my card reader but I PLOMISE (as Jayden USED to say) that it will be fixed and I will put up some pictures next week of last week’s event!  We had a great week this week.. I taught some classes and they went very well and we had sooo much fun!  And now it is back to BIDNISS and I am now posting the WEEKLY BELLARIFIC EVENT!  School starts in a week and a half (yikes) so we have decided to take a little JAUNT with the kidlets to Niagara Falls and Buffalo.. to go to TACKY Clifton Hill, Marineland etc.. so a lot of fun will be had (we hope).. so wish us lots of luck!!

So let’s boogie.. I will showcase the BABES first and BOY did they outdo themselves!! Now I must include all the SUPERLATIVE ADJECTIVES at this point.  My BABEROONIS are the BEST.. I really couldn’t have asked for a more committed and loyal bunch and I soo appreciate all their hard work in showcasing da BELLA.. So thank you again BABEROONIS for being there for me and always making the most BEEYOOOOTIFUL pieces of art!  I be SOOOO LUCKY to have you!
