Stamp Camp

My downline and I had a Stamp Camp during Covention time. It was a lot of work, but everyone enjoyed it and made it worth all the time and effort of the putting one together.

  Thanks to my wonderful downline for working so hard helping me make this a success!!  Did you notice our T-shirts??  Toni made them for us.  She called SU and they said she could do that as long as the logo was on the shirt.  It is on the cuff of our sleeve.  They were made with MDS.  She is so talented!

This was one of our boards displaying cards that everyone had made.  Some were cased from other great Demonstrators adn some were original ideas. 

Some of the camp attendees waiting for the doors to open!!

Some of the guest eager to start the camp.  They have already sat down to get a head start on their projects!!  Tables in the middle were for extra projects we had for the guest to do when they had some free time.

Another view of our display table.  Each of the demonstrators brought items to share.

I will try and get more pictures up next week.  Having to leave to TX.  Enjoy and Happy Stamping!!

Sorry I have not posted!

Sorry to all my blog readers that I have not posted for quite a while!!  I have had a lot going on.  I was busy around here getting ready for a stamp camp in July and then my mom got sick. 

I went home to Texas to spend some time with her.  The doctors sent her home with hospice care.  I got there on a Sunday and she passed away early Wed morning.  I am glad I got to spend her last few days with her, but it was tough watching her die. 

After the funeral we came back home, but I had alot going on here.  My downline and I were getting ready for a huge camp...which by the way was a complete success!

There has been alot going on with my family and family ALWAYS comes first over stamping and blogging.  

Then just when I thought things would be back to normal and I would be home for awhile,  my daughter had a car accident on Saturday.  Thank God, she is ok.  Minor burns from the air bags deploying and sore from the accident, but she did not get hurt and neither did the other driver.  BUT her car is probably totaled.  The adjusters will let us know in a day or two.  Unfortunately, we live in VA and she lives in TX. So, now we are trying to find a vehicle for her and get it to her.  Looks like another road trip for us.

So, every time I think I will be getting back to my stamping and  blogging, something seems to come up.  I will try posting a few pics for yall.  I hope to have some up soon. 
Thanks for being patient and continuing to visit my blog!!

Another Cascade Card

Made a card for a friend's daughter that had a baby girl.   I made it as a cascade card because I am loving this type of card right now.  I was not thrilled with the color combination, but it matched her decor and invite. 

A view of the card opened a little.  There is a gift card with the last set of owls.  I wish I would have kept the baby shower invite because I just cased it for my card.  Looks just like her owls.

Close up of the owls.
