Papa's Birthday Card with Open Sea stamp set

I CASE'd a card on Pinterest the other other day and thought it would be great for my dad's upcoming birthday.  I changed it up a little bit but sure love how it turned out.  I'll post the pic tomorrow once I can get a better picture of it in the daylight.  Hope you like it!!

Griffin Elementary Teacher Appreciation Cards

Just finished designing some cards for my children's teachers to be used during Teacher Appreciation week.  The theme was "Our Teachers are the Best in the West.!"  So I knew that I needed to use my Out West stamp set.  I designed 3 different cards and some favor boxes.  Hope you like them!

I did it!!

Well, as you can now see I figured out how to add some gadgets to my blog.  It sure turned out to be much easier than expected. 

I had a wonderful day with my Stampin' Up upline today.  It was wonderful to get to talk about stamping, life, kids, and miscellanous things!!  I am so excited about my first card swap this weekend with my new Stampin' Up family the TOPICS.  I can't wait to see what simple and elegant cards the other ladies are bringing for us to assemble and steal ideas from.  I am also super excited about my first stamp party coming up in less than a month.  I better get busy stamping!!

Hello!  Welcome to my adventure into the world of blogging!  I've been contemplating creating a blog for several months and finally decided to give it a go.  It was actually much easier than expected. 

Now... I haven't figured out how to add all the fancy graphics, personalized banners, and links that I'd like to show but I figure I'll just take this one step at a time. 

This must be a week of firsts for me because I also decided to join the Stampin' Up family and become a Stampin' Up demonstrator.  I am so excited as I begin this new journey in my life.  I have always loved crafts of all types whether it was cross-stitching, quilting, wood working, scrap booking and recently I have found a true love of STAMPING!!  There is just something soothing and therapeutic about sitting down to stamp.  I love the process of picking out what color combinations, stamp sets, and final card layout I'm going to use.  If you haven't tried it, I would highly recommend it and if you have then you know what I'm talking about!!!

Thank you for visiting!!
