Vickie's Card Class

Vickie Meadows held another great card class at Artful Legacy. These are a few of her cards that we made. Reminding us of the time of year it is and all the sights and sounds that go along with fall. It is a time to give thanks for all the blessing we have been given. It is a time for family and friends. I can not forget the turkey. My birthday just happens to be on Thanksgiving Day this year. Oh, the years to go by fast.

Happy Birthday

This is a very interesting technique. This was made in Vicki Meadows card class at Artful Legacy this month. Alcohol inks are dabbed on glossy white paper 4 X 5 1/4 inches. After the inks dry Cuddlebug the Birthday folder on paper. Apply brown Stazon on paper by running pad over piece. Brown adheres to the raised areas. Adhere this to black card front and brown card. Birthday stamp is stamped on white 1 1/8 in. circle and attached to 1 1/4 in. brown circle and then to 1 1/2 in. black circle.

Ship on Vellum

I think this ship is great for a male card. It is stamped on vellum in black Brilliance. The dots and birds are stamped on the white underneath. It is then layered with black and gray on a black card 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches. This was cased from a card by Vicki Meadows. This is an Artful Legacy stamp. Thanks for stopping by.

Bird Card

I thought this little bird was adorable. Card is 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches. Basic Gray DP, ribbon, brads, SU word punch, square scalloped punches used in this layout. It can be used for most any occasion.

Young Boy Raises Funds for SPCABy Lori Verni, Staff WriterThursday, September 27, 2007 8:52 PM EDT
Most adults are aware of the pet overpopulation problem and the need for people to adopt dogs, contribute to animal welfare and be responsible pet owners. Most pet lovers try to do their part in one way or another and a very exceptional young man has also started making a big difference for animals in spite of his youth.Trey Russell, a ten year old resident of Fuquay-Varina, recently completed his second annual fundraiser for the SPCA of Wake County. Trey is an animal lover; his favorite animal being his dog, Patience, whom he adopted from the SPCA of Wake County four years ago.After receiving some fund-raising campaign materials in the mail from SPCA last year, Trey felt the need to do something to help the hundreds of animals the SPCA of Wake County provides assistance to each year. He contacted friends and family via e-mail, asking them for their help and by the end of last summer had raised over $250.Building on last summer's success, Trey decided to continue the tradition and worked diligently to meet his summer 2007 goal of $300."Trey's annual fundraiser not only raises money that directly helps the animals in the care of the SPCA of Wake County, but it also informs the people he knows about the issues facing animals in our community like overpopulation, cruelty and neglect," said Vanessa Budnick, SPCA of Wake County's Humane Educator. "I think that the message of Trey's hard work is that you are never too young to help your community. The animals at the SPCA of Wake County are lucky to have a friend like Trey Russell helping them."Trey is the son of proud parents Jay and Dawn Russell and is a fifth grader at Wake Christian Academy.
