Thankful Thursday- Birthday cards

Dina, my Leadership friend sent me this card.  I love the sponged background colors.
     One of the great things about being a stamper and teaching stamping to others is the wonderful birthday cards you receive in the mail.  Yes, the 26th of November was my birthday . I celebrated with my daughter Jen and her family, but I was not home to receive any mail.  But when I arrived back at my house this is what I found.
Amanda sent me a card with a great use of Designer paper.
Nan's card is so sparkly.  I love the color combination and the shimmer paper.
Judy, a customer, who had never stamped before sent me a card using my favorite designer paper.

Cindy sent me one of her challenge cards from our Super Snails meeting.  Love the colors on the flowers.

   These cards are all the more special because I know how much went into the making of them.  Thanks every one for thinking of me.

Wednesday Wow- Cards for others

     The last Jubilant Butterflies meeting I went to we were issued a challenge.  Hold an event to make cards to send to Veterans who would not be home for Christmas and to the Ronald McDonald house for families staying there to send to loved ones.  I held my event on Monday.  5 people came and made 82 cards.  I used leftover card supplies from Christmas cards I had accumulated over the years.  We had a great time and performed a wonderful service for others.  That is what this season is all about for me.

Thankful Tuesday-Thanksgiving card

     It is hard for me to believe that a week has passed since I have sat down to the computer.  Family crisis and 15 people in my house are the reasons.  But, it feels good to be back to stamping and sharing.  This card is from my sister Nan who is also my downline.  I love the look of the card.  The interesting thing she told me about the card is that the challenges I give my downline have stretched her as a stamper.  Last year she would have been content with sending out this card with just the saying on it.  But this year it did not look complete.  So after several attempts she added the leaves.  I love that about working with the craft.  You learn new ways to create your projects that step them up a bit.  So, thanks Nan for a great card that I enjoyed.
