Hello!! I know it's been a few days since my last post! I hope you all had a great weekend! How many of you were able to take a little time for yourself & enjoy World Card Making Day? I hope each of you were able to do something fun over the weekend & enjoy some creative time!!
We had a pretty busy weekend around here. On Saturday I had a Stampin' Up! Open House with make-n-takes to celebrate WCMD. I really enjoyed the day & it's always fun to be able to visit with the ladies! I want to say Thank You So Much to all of the wonderful ladies that came on Saturday!! Later that evening I went to a Surprise Birthday Party! One of the ladies (Miriam) that comes to my stamping classes had her 60th Birthday on Saturday & her Daughter had a surprise party for her! It was a really nice party with family & friends & really yummy food!
When I came home I had my own surprise!! I received an email from Liz at CHF (Cornish Heritage Farms) letting me know I had won a 'mini treasure' from the Worldwide Treasure Hunt!! I won the Summer Fun stamp set!! I can't wait to play with it!! I already have a few ideas sketched out-LOL-so I will be ready!! You should hop on over to CHF and check out the new line of stamps by Kim Hughes!! She has some really fun designs!! I have to say the Treasure Hunt was so much fun!! Along the way you had to look for CLUE WORDS & throughout the journey the Treasure Hunt took me to some wonderful sites with some amazing design work!! I thought it was a great way to celebrate a new stamp line.
On Sunday after church we spent the day at the Big Island Rendezvous & Festival. It's a great way to spend the day with family and find out what life was like 150 years ago! They have entertainment, merchants, & lots of yummy food!! I will post more about that tomorrow...
Here are a couple of cards that I made this last week. They were for customer orders but they were also for my friend Miriam (Surprise BD Party). I love how both of them turned out!! I didn't realize it until I was going to do this post but I forgot to take pictures of the card I made for her from myself! LOL!
