Happy Birthday Caleb!

My Grandson's second birthday is this coming Wednesday and I am so excited! I wish I could be there with him to celebrate, but since I have a new job, I cannot get away to fly up north to be with him. I sent him this cute birthday card with his present and will give him a call that day to wish him a Happy Birthday! His favorite color is orange, so I wanted to incorporate it into the card as much as possible.
It is so wonderful to be a grandma!!!

Spring Fling Stamp Camp Samples

Here are the samples for the upcoming Spring Fling Stamp Camp on June 6th from 1-4 pm at my home. The fee for the camp is $15 and is for ages 15 and up. RSVP by May 31st.
Thank you for inspiration from my fellow demonstrators Janet Pulskamp for the Thanks card, Deidre Wong for the Ice Cream card, and Lois Okino for the Butterfly card. I changed the cards a teeny bit from their originals, mostly just with the colors.
There are 4 cards and a folio to hold them. I used some of the new stamp sets and tools from the Summer Mini Catalog.

Stamp 'n Chat card

This card is one that I created for our Demonstrator Stamp 'n Chat this past week. I plan for it to be one of the cards we will make in the Spring Fling Stamp Camp that was postponed until June 6th.
I have a couple more cards that we will be adding to the camp with the folio that was shown previously. Let me know if you need more information about the camp.
This card uses some new items from the Summer Mini Catalog!

Ronald McDonald House Projects

Above are some samples of the projects for the Ronald McDonald House event today. Since next weekend is Mother's Day, I wanted to give the families something that they could give to MOM. The top project is a bookmark, and the bottom project is a matchbook tablet key chain. We had a good time today with the families there!

A Little Thank You Gift

I made this little box (it holds a mini Hershey bar) to thank my Office Manager for all her help in training me in my new job. She is so nice and so patient, so I wanted to let her know how much I appreciate that by giving her a little token of my thanks.
The little box is made from cardstock that is 2 1/4 x 4 inches and scored at 1/2 inch all around. It is just the perfect size for one of the mini chocolate bars. I think it also holds 3 chocolate nuggets, but I didn't have any of those to check it with. I used the new stamp set from the Summer Mini called Watercolor Trio and gold embossed the images.
