Our theme this month is to use a retiring set and use either Mother's Day or feminine theme. I am going to miss the A Nice Cuppa along with the cute Cups and Kettles Framilits Die! Perfect for Mother's Day, don't you think? You can still get it, however it is on the retired list.

Check it out on my website www.franceswagner.stampinup.net  Item number 140683 for $17.00 in photopolymer. 

Here are a few samples using that set.

Don't forget to follow the other blogs on the great hop.

Last Weekly Deals

Here are a few things I have been working on lately! Actually my sample is not in the photo!  :( It is a little lamb with the word spring on it.  I will show you later. I was in an inchy swap 2x2 cards to frame or add to a card or a scrapbook page. The idea is if we all use the same colors and theme it will all coordinate perfectly and I think we achieved that.  I swapped with a few Stampin' UP! demonstrators from North Carolina. These are adorable and I can't wait to get them framed.

Thanks for stopping by.

Customer Spotlight- Bunny Ricciardi - Class this week-

Sometimes when we find and stamp with customers ( most of the time actually) they become our friends. Bunny recently found me on line and also came to one of my classes and shares her ideas with me. This is Bunny working on a card at one of my classes. So sorry I did not get her with her head up.  Bunny is an outstanding stamper, I love her creativity!


Bunny recently shared a few photos of cards she has been working on. I love them. I apologize for the Easter cards being late but I had to share them. So pretty. Thank you Bunny for sharing your talent with us.

 This Thursday 4/7/16 I will be offering a card class, making 3 cards for $16.00 at Rockridge Clubhouse.  Please contact me to rsvp by Wednesday 4/6/16 This is one of the cards we will be making on Thursday. I love the new stamp set #imbringingbirthdaysback and wanted to make a card although I think it was created for envelopes.  Just needed something bring and cheerful.
