Weekly Deal 5-26-15 through 6/2/15 and card class this week.

Some of my customers just couldn't get enough of the Painted Blooms DSP . . . . Here is your chance to get it one more time and at a discount. :)

Here are a couple of cards we made yesterday at card class. You will have to join us next time.  This was my last class in May and the end of the Stampin' UP! year but now worries I have some great classes coming up in June.   I was trying to use some of my expiring supplies. 
I wanted to have a shirt/vest card for the girls in my life.  What do you think?

Sharing what I love!

Recently I posted about volunteering at the Women's Refuge of Vero Beach Resale Shop and this week I was privileged to share what I love doing with some of the women at the Women's Refuge Home.

Do you see those bright smiles!  I love it when I am sharing card making with someone and you see that ah-ha moment when ink touches paper and the magic begins.   These sweet women gave me so much joy in this activity.  I feel blessed for the opportunity.

The cool part is they were all given the same supplies but you can see the creativity where they all changed it a bit to suit what they liked.  I asked if anyone had any questions and get ready for it. . . . .Can we do this again tomorrow.  Music to my ears when someone wants to stamp with me.

I feel blessed to have JoAnn Staszewski in my life and who introduced me to these women.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you would like to have this much fun with your friends.

Salvation Army Crop and Birthday Wishes

The Salvation Army monthly crop was this weekend. What a great time we always have making scrapbooks and cards and sharing ideas. I always have a class on Saturday and this week I had a new friend Queralt, that joined us.  Queralt, Bonnie and June (No picture of June) took my masculine class and they had a great time. Queralt had never stamped before and it was fun to watch and hear her when she first touched ink to paper with a rubber stamp.  That aha moment is the reason I love my job so much. 
Here are my cards, but I have to tell you I cased them all.  I love the vest type card that was in our Stampin Success Magazine that Stampin' UP! sends to us bi-monthly I look forward to it.  They give us great ideas and of course updates.  

On this card I was trying to figure it out when I found out that France Martin had beat me too it (check out her video.) I did mine a little different but that is fine to do also.  I tried to put the link on but it doesn't seem to work.  Try cutting and pasting this. or check out Frenchie's website she is an amazing stamper.

Inside of card.

View of Stampin' Success Magazine for demos only (let me know if you want one of the magazines and would like to sign up under me)

This card I cased from Michelle Humphrey a demo friend of mine. 

This was a fun card I cased from one of our Artisan Design Team Members, Allison Okamitsu.
She does fabulous work. I love her style.

Inside of card.

For all these cards I used the Guy Greetings Stamp set.  At first that little body building man stamp sort of  turned me off the set but I looked closer and decided that there are so many possibilities.

Guy Greetings Clear Stamp Set  
Price: $25.95

Since I was gone all day yesterday I forgot to check my mail till today!  Guess what, I had a surprise!

This is a darling birthday card from one of my team members Carolyn Stoenner from North Carolina. Did you notice the cute, cute, cute envelope. We love to get stamped envelopes because when you see that cute envelope you know you are in for a great surprise when you open it. Thank you Carolyn for your thoughtfulness.

Have a great week. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Mother's Day

I hope all the mother's had a great Mother's Day.  When I called my mom today she told me she got this little journal I made her.  She loves her flowers and this was taken probably 25 years ago when she was planting flowers.  I noticed she is squinting at the bright sun but I still love the picture of her doing what makes her happy.

My day was quiet and I got my sweet calls from my boys! (what mother does not live for that)

Here we are Eric on the left and Chris on the right.  Love those boys. 

Thanks for stopping by!
