I will be placing the order on October 15 so sign up now! I got the photo from Terry Ransom on Stampin' Connection. She did this beautiful display and gave me a great opportunity to try it myself. Thanks, Terry!

While I use Stampin' Up! exclusively when I have workshops and when I make my cards for family and friends. However, I have a Cricut that I love and use it when I scrapbook. I wanted to share these cards because Audrey, my nine year old, helped me make these for a friend who volunteers for Make A Wish. They have a client headed to Disney World in a few weeks and they wanted to send her something to increase her excitement. Audrey and I spent Saturday night making these cards for a little girl who needs a smile. The truth is, they made me smile as Audrey and I laughed and picked out characters and colors. I wouldn't trade those hours for anything.
As a side note, everything is SU! except for the characters that were cut with the Cricut. Hope you can share a smile with someone special today, tomorrow and in the future!
Have a great week!

Christmas Card Swap

Here is the card I made for a card swap with my friend, Amy. It's very simple but very easy to make. I'm planning on using this set for my Christmas cards--maybe this will be the card! Hope you enjoy it.

A workshop this weekend

I have a workshop scheduled this weekend for a friend of mine. She's a former teacher and now stay at home mom. She's having some friends over for an afternoon of fun. These are the cards we're making. Hope they like them!

I CASEd the cards from excellent demonstrators on Stampin' Connection. Thanks to Kathryn E Gallant for the Crazy for Cupcakes card. I changed the colors but couldn't resist the layout! Thanks also to Jennie Maier for the punch card. I wanted to use the Tiny Tags set but for the life of me couldn't create a thing! This card was perfect and hopefully a good upselling point at Lisa's party on Sunday afternoon. :)
Let me know what you think!

PS For those of you following me, I'm trying to get through the list. I'll get there eventually, please be patient with me.
