So Many Cards, So Much Fun!! Lots of Photos Too!!

Hi, Gals!

What a fantastic week I have had!  So much
 stamping (and today, so much re-organizing
 everthing!) and so much fun with wonderful 
stamping friends.  I'm a lucky girl!  

Starting with Sunday, we had a Fun Fold
Workshop at the Oasis (my home) and made our multi-multi surface card!  
They turned out GOJUSLY!!!  We also had a
fun afternoon of chatting too.

Monday was Creative Cards Monday at
The Gallery. 
Our two classes made the Never Ending 
(Think Chinese Puzzle Card!) and a pretty 
floral card with dimension and 2-step stamping. 
I am grateful for the patience and diligence 
of my stampers.  We were victorious!!

Tuesday was SOS Stamp Club's Monthly meeting 
at the Oasis.  9 of our 10 stampers were able to attend.  We had a great time making the Lion card and a really pretty waterfall card.

Check out all the pix below!

Bee-yoo-tee-ful Fun Fold Cards!!

No Lion and Waterfall Cards

Hi, Stampers!  What a fun Monday we had and what a fun week we have coming up!  We made my friend, Linda's, CASE'd lion card and I attempted a waterfall card for the first time.  Both were great hits with the Monday stampers.  I can't wait for my Stamp Club to make them this coming Tuesday evening!

Our cutest everrrrrrr lions!

Happy Stampin', Gals!!

Bride and Groom!

Mojo Mondays AM Stampers, Jane and Lori.

Pretty Floral Birthday Card
We used blender pens for our
watercolor effect.  

One of my favorites to pull out every year or so!
 Lots of fussy cutting,
but worth it! I CASE'd
this card from Lynn Pratt.
Bless her for still having
the template online!
PM Stampers, Lavinia, Sharon, Nancy,
Jo, Debby, Joan and Helen.
So intent!
So many pretties!!

Yes, it's time for my prize patrol!  Be the first to email
 the words,
"Here comes the bride" to me for a
fun stamping prize.
Coming up this Monday!!  One of our cards will
feature this totally cute
lion!  We'll have several
greetings and have a rip-roaring time
putting this together.  We'll 
also create a pretty card!

Happy Stamping!!

Hooray for the Red, White & Blue!

Hey Stampers!
Here are our fun creations from this past Monday
 at the Gallery!  We created a patriotic all-occasion 
card and a lovely vintage card using Very Vanilla, 
Pretty in Pink and Crumb Cake.  Yummy!  Yes, you can 
tell that we have a great time chatting and laughing 
during class!  The results speak for themselves!  Beautiful
 cards all around!  Thank you, talented ladies. 

 Coming Up:  I'm looking
 forward to another fun Monday coming up!
We'll make a "twist" card and a pretty seascape
 using Stampin'[ Up's "By the Tide" stamp 
set and a fun 
watercolor technique!
Join us!!  Email Ree at to 
reserve a spot for our Monday morning or 
afternoon class.
