There’s a first time for everything…..here’s what I did:

I attended Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage event this weekend.  Friday night was a wonderful get together of stampers with the title of Managers, (Silver Elite) and above.  There were 103 stampers there.  I dare say most are more talented than myself!  I felt honored to be able to attend.

Stampin’ Up! treated us to a delicious meal followed up by a very interesting talk on honing our skills at being leaders in our SU families.  I haven’t given you any “food” pictures in a while, so, here goes:

I have learned so much since joining the SU family in 2007!  One of the things that really stuck with me from the presentation is this:

Praise be to God!  I want to thank him for all the blessings that have been given to me and my family!

On Saturday, we had an event that a number of my Stampin’ Up! family attended with me.  We had a wonderful time.  Received oodles of goodies, (sorry, I can’t share them with you at this time.  They are new stamp sets that we will be using with you soon!).

Here’s a group shot that included my downline and Sarah’s.On stage group shotNot everyone was able to come, but, maybe in the future.  Thanks to all who did attend, I was proud to have you there with me!

Now, as for “a first time for everything”, here’s what I did;  All 5 of my cards for this month’s Kismet class were inspired by cards I received as swaps!  So many talented people and so many beautiful cards!  I switched up a few things to make them mine and had fun choosing which ones to use.

If you are not signed up for class, you maybe sorry!!  That’s just a warning!  Here are three of the cards we will be stamping this Monday and Tuesday:

Happy Stamping!
