Stamp Club Holiday Dinner and Swaps

Hi, Stampers!

Hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start!!  We ended 2015 with lots of family and delicious meals and we started 2016 with MORE family and delicious meals!  It is certain to be a great year!

Now off to a great year of stamping!!  Our two class are back on schedule tomorrow and we have the launch of the Spring Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs for huge inspiration!!

My stamp club, The SOS Stampers, have a holiday dinner each year.  I prepare a meal, set the table and we all have a wonderful time and our hostess gets the evening off!  This year's menu was a garden/hearts of palm salad, chicken parm, eggplant parm, garlic bread and holiday goodies for dessert.  

Instead of a gift exchange this year, we decided to have a swap.  I hope you'll enjoy the creativity of my talented stamp club and I hope you'll find some inspiration to help get your year started!!
I may put them on 2 days of posting since there are 11 of them.  Enjoy!!

Here's my Downline Diva, Donna's, sneak peek card using "The Sky is the Limit", one of the limited time stamps that are part of the free Sale-A-Bration offerings with a $50 order. Great card, Donna!

 Here is Michelle's card, a wonderful punch art card.  Love this!!

 Here's Lloydene's adorable koala card!  She is an amazing colorist!!  This is just adorable!!

 Alice is so good at this technique!  I will now learn it because sweet Alice included directions for the intricate braided paper on the left side.  Thank you, Alice!

 Here's Dar's card.  I just love those pine cones and pine boughs.  Did you recognize the bird builder wing shape of the candle flame!  Well done, Dar!

Isn't this sweet!  Yes, in more ways than one because this sweet little bag also includes some tasty chocolates.  Thank you, Cindy Lou!!  (You know what we ALL really like!!)

I'll be posting the rest of the swaps tomorrow and the day after I'll have 2 cards featuring the wonderful Botanical Gardens Ensemble.  I love the DSP, I love the Stamps, I love the Framelits and the jewels and the the Washi Tape and........Well you get the idea!  I will be using those items to the hilt in the coming months!!!

Happy Stamping Hugs,
