Birthday Cards

Arrived home safely from my Salt Lake City (Convention) and Michigan with friends excursions yesterday afternoon to a counter full of birthday cards.  I have to say one of my favorite things about being a demonstrator, besides getting to know so many great gals who also love to make cards, is receiving cards from them!!!  I just have to share them with you now ...

Birthday Cards

Wow, what a beautiful birthday yesterday.   A big thanks to all my Facebook friends with birthday wishes.   We left Mackinaw City in northern Michigan and drove back to the Battle Creek area via a beautiful town of Potaskey on Lake Michigan.   Absolutely beautiful and fun shops.   I think I could live in Michigan, even in the winter, if I could have one of the homes on Lake Michigan :-)

Speaking of birthdays, here are a few birthday card ideas from Convention to keep you going until I get back and back to work ...

Off to Convention ...

My bags are packed and I'm ready to go ... to Convention ... Wahooooo!  I've been practicing my "wahoo's" ... just a fabulously fun time.   One of my downlines, Sheri, will be sharing the fun with me this year along with a lot of my other great friends I've made through this great Stampin' Up! family.  Check out what's in my suitcase for my 3-D swaps.

Blossom Punch

This week as I was running Christmas in July, I walked into my supply closet and right there in the middle of the floor was a scrap piece of Floral District DSP (pg 163).  I was about to throw it out but got distracted.  So there it sat on my work desk ... did not make it to the trash can ... So glad it didn't...
