Happy Mardi Gras!

All I can say is that Daphne, AL has the best parades. I've been to Mobile and Fairhope and I really like the ones that Daphne has. It's not about the floats. (although the floats are fun to look at). I'm talking about the beads, Moon Pies, stuffed animals, light up toys, candy, etc.
Amanda, Jessica, Steve and I went to the parade on Friday night and we caught a lot of stuff. Amanda and Jessica had fun collecting the stuff off the ground and we all had some friends meet us down there too. I brought hot cocoa, marshmellows, Cheetos, chips, King Cake and donuts. My friend brought some wine and I spilled it all over the Cheetos. Let me tell you, the kids went right to sleep that night. LOL.
For those of you who don't know about Moon Pies they come in many flavors. Chocolate, banana, orange, vanilla. Well recently the buzz was there are now peanut butter ones. I was on the lookout for those on Friday night. I yelled, "MOON PIE!!!" to the ladies on the float and on…

Club meeting was so much fun!

Isn't it always so much fun?? LOL. We had few new faces last night. Christy came all the way from Mobile to stamp with us. I hope we weren't too rowdy for her. My hubby made martinis. A little too strong actually.

We also got a new member Veronica. She is so much fun and I know our group will love having her around.

Another thing we decided was that the marker club is going to start next month. We finally got everyone together and we'll be meeting the last Thursday of every month. So our first meeting will be March 26. Class is at 6:30pm. We'll be making 5 cards and will learn a new technique with markers each class. See my Stampin' Up! website for more details.

Here is the cute hostess set that I made for Carla. For those of you who don't know Carla she sells Creative Memories. I really wanted this frame for putting small scrapbook pages in. Since Carla likes scrapbooking I thought I would use the new Build-a-fairytale die punched art to make a cute page for h…

Donate to the Australian Red Cross

Stampin' Up! has posted on their website about the devastating fires that tragically took the lives of many people. The good news is that none of the victims were Stampin' Up! demonstrators. But they still have been affected by this disaster and have responded by donating 50% of all sales to the survivors.

Stampin' Up! is one of the most generous businesses I have had the pleasure of working for. Although US demonstrators are not included in the relief effort they have posted the website for the Australian Red Cross if we wish to donate to the cause. With all that goes on in the world it is nice to know that people reach across bounderies to help each other.

Many of you, my friends, are very giving people and I knew that you might want to know how to help out if you can. At the very least we can pray for the families there dealing with the aftermath of this tragedy.

Teacher Appreciation Week

Here's some cute cards I made with the new Stampin' Up! set called Teacher's Pet. I hope Amanda's teacher likes it.

Isn't this so cute? I really think the kids will like it. All of Ms. Ayres students are going to sign it tomorrow. I think she'll be really surprised by it. Well I'm trying to get my cards cut for tonight. I have a class to make 10 cards for $10. Christine is nice enough to host so she'll be bringing snacks. I'm trying to come up with a nice gift for her. I also have to come up with one for my hostess tomorrow night. We're having the club meeting and it's going to be a full house.

I'll post more later. Happy Stampin'!

Valentine class

I had lots of classes for Valentines this year. Two of the classes were for kids to make treat bags. Amanda's came out good and she stamped them by herself.

Grandpa got this cute truck for Valentine's Day. Actually it was two days after Valentine's because the girls misplaced it and we couldn't find it until Monday.

Michelle Huggins had a great idea for donating some cards to the nursing home. Kella works at a nursing home so we gave them to her to take to work. Here's some of the cards we did. We donated over 30 cards! Both Michelle and Kella helped design and make the cards one night. I know a few of you wanted to do it as well but the days to get together didn't work out for everyone.

I wanted to make this You Rock! card to send to my dear friends. I hope they liked it. They really do ROCK! LOL.
That's it for now!
