celebrations galore

Our kitchen table looked like a Hallmark store!
We both celebrated our birthdays last week and our anniversary was earlier this month.
We get happy mail just about all month long!

Some of Joe's handmade birthday cards....these are so special!

Here are my handmade birthday cards. Love each and every one!

treat box

We made this cute box at Sylvia's card class last week. It is filled with Hershey Hugs...hence the sentiment we added to the cute!

Card class

Another fabulous card class at Sylvia's this week!
Love the friend card the most!

Sylvia is so talented with her card making. She teaches us new techniques and makes us think outside the box. This is why I love taking her classes...though I still am not a fan of glitter. Thank you Sylvia for your talent, humour, and friendship!

StampAway Fun!

Friday night Sylvia and I went to the preview party at Stampaway and had a blast! I wish we would have gotten a picture year we won't forget. 

I guess I did not get enough of the fun that my stamp club/craft club went on Saturday morning. We had so much fun...these ladies are awesome!
We laughed, we cried, we shopped...then we laughed and cried and shopped some more!

Colleen...with her FREE bag...of course she is now known as the high roller shopper.
Lookin good Colleen!

Ran into more of my stamping friends....Gena and Carolyn! So happy to have seen them.
We love our stamps!

Photos courtesy of the Stampaway photographer. Where's Karen?
I know she was there! If you look close you will see Regina and I purchasing our must have stamp set. You can also see Colleen and Casey conversing over where to go next and you see Shari looking for her next great buy....but where's Karen?

What better way to top off the day with a little lunch and show and tell.
Chilis was the place to be...delicious and cheap...since we spent all our money at Stamp Away!
Until next year.....

It's time...

Stamp Away here we come! 
I sent a few of these out to some of my stamping friends who I thought might be interested in going to the Stamp Away Convention.
This is an Art Impression set I saw at Micheals the other day and knew I had to have it!
The sentiment "stamps this way" sold me on it.
I just love a new set of stamps...don't you?!
Let the FUN begin!
