Mother Daughter Stamp Night

Tammy Freed is the hostess for my Super Stamper Group #2. She asked for a mother/daughter theme for her group last night! It was fun to make cards with the duo's. Tammy made pie for Pi day and her famous deviled eggs!

Veroneca is Tammy's "sister" and her daughter is Bella. Bella has her mother's eyes and magnetic personality. Bella made me this card! I am thrilled to add it to my collection... She is a very talented third grader that loves the color blue and reading the Magic Treehouse book series!

Mother and daughter made two cards each:

Treva's Table Setting

Today is the day to celebrate Sarah's Quinceneara at the St Anthony's Table Setting Luncheon.

Treva introduced me to Mia five years ago. I love that she shares her friends... I love how they both make everything beautiful!

These lovely ladies are Treva's mother, mother in law and her youngest daughter

Here is Sarah... The birthday girl! Beautiful!!!

Treva, Sarah, & Rebekah! Check out that cake... Treva never skimps on her parties!!

Here is the invitation that Treva made ... She took the sample from Lorraine and improved it!

This week I have many people to thank for helping me accomplish all I do and try to do. I wanted to use up my Sale A Bration paper and stamp sets. I found a similar card on Inking Idaho's blog. That girl is so creative!

Cards in a Box #2

Here are the cards my Stampin Sisters and I swapped tonight at our card in the box swap.

Renee's Card

Kathy's Card

Marie's Card

Paula's Card

My Card

Happy 15th Birthday Sarah!

I received a text yesterday from Treva asking if I had an idea for Sarah's Quinceanera invitations... I really wanted to use the Stampin' Up Quinceanera stamp set but she needed the invites sooner than I could order the set. So I texted Lorraine and she came up with these two samples... Inspired by Sarah's Beautiful dress... Treva is combining the idea to make a beautiful version to be posted later!

Saturday Scrappy Day

So many scraps pile into my Longaberger basket each week. I took time yesterday to use some First Edition Specialty Paper to use from a card I CASE'd on Google images. It was nice to tie it up with leftover SAB buttons too!

I often need thank you cards and this will help me complete my goal of ten handmade cards a week filled with Thank You's!

Renee's Inspirational Butterfly Show

Renee is my new recruit. She is not new to stamping... She and I have been learning and playing for years... She has seen me at my best and worst (she does not have a bad side.... Always positive!) my family love her so much and wish they could be here to support her tonight!

She joined my team and will be my convention partner! Renee shines in whatever she puts her mind to so I am feeling so blessed to have her as a Stampin partner!

Renee loves butterflies and angels... So tonight we will be making these cards! Lucky friends of Renee have the opportunity to play and be spoiled by the best demonstrator ever! Thanks Renee for your support and Good Luck tonight!!
