3 of My Favorite Cards

Many of you know that Ann went to the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida earlier this year. If you didn’t, well, now you know.

It was the last one of its type that they’re going to have. From now on, they’re going to try something different.

She told me it was great! She explored new restaurants with Linda (one of our 24/7 Stampers), she saw some informative presentations and some delightful demonstrations.

And she did that for…

Purse Card Video

Do you know someone who loves purses? Do YOU love purses? Do you have a favorite purse? What color is it? Does it have a handle?

Ann’s made a couple different versions of this card over the past 16 years, but I think I like this one the best. (The others were pink and black.)

We just love it! And everything old is new again.

It All Started with a Scrap

Where do you get your ideas? I think Ann is a bit backwards.

Why?

Some people have to start with a clean desk. But Ann get many of her ideas by cleaning off her stamp table. That’s a big reason why we clean up before we stamp rather than at the end.

And today’s card started just that way – with …

Thank You, Amanda!

It’s nice to get a card or package in the mail. How do I know? Amanda sent Ann & me a nice little package with sweets, dog treats and two cards in it.

We should be posting the whole bit on Instagram or on my Facebook page soon. I’m almost positive that Ann took a phone picture before she ate all the candy.

Our package was extra special because…

40 Days Card Challenge

Today’s card was one Ann made during the 2nd Creativity Experiment last night. I was so excited about making some new friends that I was on my best behavior last night.

Aren’t you proud of me?

In fact, this card wasn’t exactly like the sample and Ann could see the sample!
