April Fun

So much stamping fun has happened this month!  In early April I drove to OnStage in Shreveport, Louisiana with Molly (a demo friend from Wichita).


I had a fabulous time and came home with a lot of stampin' goodies!  I took a ton of pictures....what fun seeing all the gorgeous samples made by such talented stampers.


This is just 1 section of the "Swap Board" which happens to include my 2 swaps.  

 This card uses the Dragonfly Dreams set and was inspired by a card made by Michelle Last.  My next card was supposed to be my swap, but I only got a couple of them made....here's what it looked like...with all those pieces already cut out I'm guessing it might become a make and take in the near future!  Ha!



Oh my goodness, my friends....wait until you see the new catalog!!
 I'm just going to tell you-- I can't wait to get my hands on so much stuff!  It is awesome!

After a full day of Stamping' Up fun a few of us (90) joined Erica Cerwin (Pink Buckaroo Stamping) and Kay Cogbill for and "After Party" of stamping using the Cool Treats stamp set.  Such fun!  Kay came around giving out door prizes and thought I was sitting by my sister.....


...but we'd just met that night!  I guess you could say we were stampin' sisters!

I love being a Stampin' Up demonstrator!  You meet the greatest people (while having fun) and you get a discount on all the great stuff in the catalog!  WIN-WIN in my book!

My Poor Neglected Blog

I had a friend and fellow demonstrator ask me in November if I was still a demonstrator...."uh, yes, " I replied, "why do you ask?"  She responded with, "Well, I've been checking your blog and you haven't posted in so long I wondered..."

Uh-oh--better get on it I thought (and yet here it is 2 months later).  It's not like I haven't been stamping--I just haven't been stamping regularly due to my busy-ness with school this year. So here's a quick catch up of some of my holiday cards that I have made with my stamping groups over the last few months--at least the ones that I took pictures of before I sent off in the mail!  Ha!

I loved this sweet angel....if you like her maybe she'll be on the clearance rack soon!  =-)




The goal is to be a bit more "bloggy" so I'm going to try!  I have a lot of pictures that I took  before Christmas that I can post while I'm playing with my new Occasions goodies!
