We have quite a few birthdays in the family this week...so I love this card and thought it would make a cute birthday card. Squeeze the day has got to be in your amuse stash...it is a fabulous stamp set!!
A few months ago I participated in a second recipe swap with fellow amuse studio consultants. I loved the first round of recipes and I loved this one as well. My recipe is a little taste of Cincinnati. I used the love is in the air set for my recipe...it turned out perfect! Click here to view the entire recipe swap...you won't want to miss this!
I participated in a card swap with fellow consultants. We all used something from the new Holiday Catalog to make our swaps. I must say they are all AMAZING! What a great group of talented people. I love these swaps because the inspiration is fabulous. Thanks ladies!
Here are a few more handmade birthday cards I received for my birthday yesterday. I love getting mail on my birthday...so many wonderful wishes. I enjoyed a day of sunshine, good food, friends, and family...couldn't have asked for more. Thanks everyone for making my birthday special!
I moved my son back to XU and came home to an afternoon/evening of some Holiday Hoopla. I had everything pretty much ready before I left the house at 9 a.m. so that when I came home in the afternoon I only had to do a couple of things to be ready for all my stamping friends!
Spotlight board was ready to showcase.
Holiday Catalog items ready to share....love all the new product!
My awesome upline, Melissa, sent me some samples for my open house!
Door prize give -a -ways! Once again, my amazing upline who happens to be my sister-in-law sent me this lemon basket for my birthday and it was perfect for my open house as one of the spotlight items is Squeeze the Day stamp set! I plan to use this for my daughter's bridal shower as it is a lemon theme.
Food and drink is always served at my open houses. The mason jars and fancy lids were another birthday surprise from my wonderful sis-in-law. I also got the idea for the lemon slice picks from amuse studio conference earlier this year.
Cheers to amuse studio!
We do stamp when we get together...
Our make and takes at Holiday Hoopla. the Halloween card was almost identical to the one Chelsea Comer created and the lemon card was a sample done by amuse studio...both a huge hit!
Some of the girls with their amuse studio catalog!
Thank you ladies for a fun-filled afternoon/evening of stamping, laughter, and friendship!
It's move in day for Luke! This pile is only the tip of the iceberg...he has added more to the pile and it has grown even bigger. I will be sad to see him go but he is so excited to be starting another year at XU!
And when I get home...
...it's HOLIDAY HOOPLA TIME!!!
Come join the fun at my open house today from 4-8 pm!
These beautiful words of love from Jane Austin were at each person's place setting at the wedding I attended over the weekend. The bride is a fan of Jane Austin and each quote was more beautiful than the other.
