Celebrating 25 years of Nursing!

Last evening was wonderful! I attended my alumni banquet and had the pleasure of catching up with some wonderful friends from my past. It was so great seeing everyone, I only wish more could have joined us. Everyone looked great and everyone seemed so happy to be there...I know I was. Even better, we were able to exchange contact information and Facebook info to "friend" one another so we can stay in touch...yeah, 25 years ago when we graduated from nursing school there was no such thing as Facebook, heck, there was no such thing as Internet! 
I present to you the class of 1990!
Here are those of us that lived in the dorm for 2 years together. So many memories. Last night was a lot of reminiscing as much as it was catching up and it was a great evening. Now, I'm off to the stamp room! Have a great evening!

It's time to think about Retirement!

Wow! Have you seen it yet? The retirement list that is. OMG! So many of my favorites are saying good bye! I'm so sad and then I remember, this happens EVERY year and every year, when the new catalog comes out, there are SO many wonderful stamps, embellishments and accessories that I immediately forget all about what retired lol. But, while I'm waiting for the new catty to come out and take my mind off all this current wonderful stuff that is retiring, I am going to wallow in my self indulgent sadness. And what you need to know about the retirement list is that the stamps are sure to be around until at least 5/26...then they will be "while supplies last" and gone by 6/2, but embellishments and accessories, ink and paper are "while supplies last" from now until 6/2 and I can guarantee you this stuff will sell out FAST. So, if you want ANYTHING, I suggest you order it right off. If you have any questions or need any help, please let me know.
Oh and be sure to check out the Clearance Rack...Stampin' Up! added more goodies to that too!!
Well I'm off. Remember to get your retirement wish list checked off so you can get started on that new catty wish list ;)

Happy Stamping,

A wonderful end to a wonderful weekend

Well, the weekend is coming to an end. I'm always sad to see the weekend close. Monday always means back to the work week routine and limited crafting time.  Today, I had a wonderful time crafting with my mom and my aunt. We made a some cards, laughed and enjoyed each others company. Isn't that what it's all about? Enjoying one another's company? I think that's one of the greatest benefits of being a paper crafter!

In addition, I completed my "share" to bring to next weeks downline meeting at my up-lines house. I thought I would bring a small "treat" to share with my fellow demonstrators. It's a rather cute little file folder that holds a Ghirardelli Chocolate...Adorbs as the teens would say lol and so easy! Take a look....I used some left over DSP from Sale-a-bration that is no longer available, but any DSP would do. But they are SO stinkin' cute! What do you think? Let me know!
Well have a great night and Happy Stamping!

Getting Ready for Mothers Day and an important message!

I have to say, I had a great time Thursday evening with some really great ladies that joined me for a stampin' great time! We made some great Mother's Day cards and shared some great laughs and so much fun. I really enjoy myself at these monthly get togethers. Here is an example of one of the cards we made:
I love this 'Wondrous Wreath' set with matching framelits! It made it's debut in the holiday catalog, however, made a return in the Spring catty. I was so happy to see that because wreath's aren't just for Christmas anymore, as you can see! I love using it like this as well. And of course, the 'Hardwood' stamp is another favorite of mine, I try to find ways to use it all the time because I love it so much.

Oooh, I almost for got to share the big news from Stampin' Up! Well, as you know, the Butterfly Bundles and Thinlits have been on back order for months due to the dock workers strike in the West, well they're due to be removed from the ship and delivered to Stampin' Up! within the week! So, in honor of all of your patience waiting for them to become available, the thinlits will be 15% off! And anyone that orders one of the bundles will be able to chose one of three Sale-a-bration products, one of which is that AMAZING DSP, Irresistibly Yours! I LOVE that paper. It is absolutely amazing! I know, I'm using the word amazing a lot here, but it is the only word that I can come up with right now to even come close to how awesome this paper really is. So, if you missed your chance during Sale-a-bration to get your hands on this paper, you just have to get your hands on it now!

Well, I'm off...if you would like specific instructions for the above card, just let me know and I will get them to you. In the meantime, Happy Stamping!!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone. I hope this evening finds everyone recovering from the food coma that accompanies holiday meals. I had the pleasure of spending the day with my parents. Poor hubby had to work...all in a day's work of CO I guess. I then went and had a nice visit with my mother-in-law. I made a card for her using the Butterfly Basics bundle. I have to say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this set! It makes beautiful birthday cards, thinking of you and here I used it to make a beautiful Easter card for my MIL. I hope you enjoy!
