A Quick Post Before Salt Lake City!

We enjoyed a little Christmas in July, today, at the Art Gallery of Viera.  There was lots of holiday merriment!!
Left to right:  Barb, Toni, Jane, Beverly,
Ginny, Mike and Cheri!  Several of
the stampers may have been new to
the fun but their projects turned out
beautifully too!

Having fun!  Dianne and Laurel.

Toni, Jane, Beverly and Mike.
We used Stamp 'n Write Markers
to color our stamps from "My Friend"
This is a bit of a time-intensive
technique, but the results
are so pretty!!

Yes!  Christmas in July!!  My basic
idea was from a Mary Fish
design.  I found this great retired
DSP for the diagonal ribbon effect.

The afternoon crew.  From
left:  Jo, Joan, Phyllis, Sharon
Nancy, Becky and Debby.
A single picture could not do justice
to these beauties!  Enjoy the rest!
Great fun and great results
today, dear gals!!
I'll bring back lots of great ideas to share
with everyone!!

Happy Stamping!!

Sandpipers, Shades of Blue and Kids' Camp!

Wow!  Another great week for stamping
as our 3 classes and a Kids' Camp at
The Gallery all happened in 4 days!
Such fun!!  Such nice stampers
that are talented and fun, fun, fun!!
I am a lucky, lucky girl!!
In the meantime, I'm getting ready for
the next two Mondays when I WILL
be in town as my trips begin on
Wednesdays.  Below are my
"formal" swaps for the organized
swaps for which I signed up.  I'm also 
taking a number of corner bookmarks
for casual (standing in line etc.) swaps.
Headed for Salt Lake City and
my first National Convention
at 7 am on Wednesday!

Here are some of my wonderful
Monday am Gallery stampers:
Eileen and Laurel.
More am Stampers hard at
play!  From left:  Mike,
Bea, Dianne, Lori and Donna.
Our Flower Shop stamp and punch
creations in shades of cool Coastal
Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pear
Pizzazz.  Those colors just make you
want to get under an umbrella
at the beach!!

More beachiness!  We
aquapainted a little ocean for
our sandpipers, sand dunes,
and sea oats.

Our Monday pm stampers from
left:  Sharon, Helen, Jo, Nancy
Elsie and Becky.

On Wednesday it was up to the
Titusville Art League with stamping
pals Pat, Linda and Jacqui.  More
beautiful beach cards followed!
Aren't they all GOJUS????!!!

To cap off a wonderful week, we made
this fantastic chipboard summer
scrapbook at our second class
 at the Art Gallery of Viera
Kids' Camp.  We punched, cut
and glued a 7 page summer
scrapbook that featured frames
and pockets for pictures and
lots of journaling opportunities.
Thanks to Emilee, Vivian, Colette,
Aubree, Taylor, Nancy, Olivia,
Addison and Mercina for attending
and doing such a great job!!

This Monday it is Christmas in July
 and we'll be "coloring" 
our stamps with markers for a
second project.
Happy Stamping!!

Ladybugs and "Hello"!

Ladybug, Ladybug......

Here's a great sampling of some of our
adorable ladybug cards.  A big
shout out to my friend and stamping buddy,
SU Demo in South Carolina, Linda
Williamson, who sent me a
wonderful ladybug thank you note.
I CASE'd it about as closely as
I could and our stampers had wonderful fun
with it.  There are more pics below!
Here are our Titusville Stampers.  3 out of 4
were first time stampers but all 4 were
From Left:  Pat, Jean,Jacqui and Linda.
What a fun, happy group!
These are our am Gallery
Stampers.  Turned
toward the camera are Donna,
Jane, Mary and Kris.
What a sweetie!  Mary is 91
and attended with her daughter,
Kris and friend, Donna.
Yes, I didn't have my camera
again and my phone takes
fuzzy pix.  Maybe the phone
photographer just takes fuzzy pix!
Can't quite see everyone but from left:
Joan, Becky, in a blur--There's a prize in store
to the first person
that emails. Hello, Hello to me. Helen, Maddie,
Eileen is behind Sharon, Nancy
and Sophia.

Hard at play!  Jo and Sharon.

Sweet ladies and Nancy's
sweet granddaughter.

Another sweet granddaughter
and a great cardmaker too:  Maddie
and her grandmother, Eileen.

There are our "Hello,
Hello, Hello, Hello" cards.
Sorry but it always reminds
me of the 3 stooges.  I lifted
the design for that card right out of
the 2013-14 catalog.  Dianne's
version had a fun twist that
had us all giggling!

This week will bring a
beautiful floral card in beautiful
hues of blue-greens AND a
very Florida-ish sandpiper card
with a little watercoloring
for our ocean.

See you on Monday and
Sweet Stampers!!
