I have been working on birthday, anniversary and graduation cards that I will be sending out in the month of May. I have 3 graduations this year. A dear friend's son is graduating from High School and I have 2 grandsons that will be graduating from Middle School. These are the cards I made for graduations. Yep, there are only 2...the grandsons get the same one. I'm not telling you which one.

These are CASEs of card that I found on Pinterest. Just added my own little 'tweak' to them. I hope the guys like them. Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time...HAPPY STAMPING!

Boy, I can't believe that I completely forgot to share last month's shoebox swaps until I was ready to post this months. So, today, you will get a 2-fer.

I have been working on cards that I need for both May and June as we will soon be hitting the road to see our newest Great Grandbabies. One is here: Holley Rose was born on 4/24. The boy is due on 5/18, so we'll see how soon we get to leave. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Stop back soon to see what I've been working on. Until then...HAPPY STAMPING!

April Birthdays

Here are the birthday cards that I made for April.
 This one uses the Birthday Blossoms set with Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride.
 Don't know why this envelope came out pink (it's white). This uses Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White.
 This is the Flowering Fields set in Old Olive and Melon Mambo.
This is the Party Wishes set in Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive.

These were the only birthday cards that I remembered to take photos of. There was another one that was for a birthday on the first, but I forgot to take a pic before I put it in the mail. I also had to make an anniversary card this month, but that one won't be posted until after the event. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget #imbringingbirthdaysback, so if you want to receive a card from me, leave your birthday in the comments and email me your snail mail addy (if I don't already have it. Until next time...HAPPY STAMPING!

Hi everyone.  Happy April Fool's Day! Did you pull any pranks on anyone today? I haven't yet, family needs to stay on their toes!
The following NOT a prank!

SU! employee and fellow demo Shannon West has started a new 'movement' that you may have heard about. #imbringingbirthdaysback. She designed a new stamp that SU! is selling (item #143573) the stamp. It's wood mounted and costs $12. Don't you just LOVE IT!??? You can read more about Shannon's movement on the SU! blog here.

If you would like to receive a birthday card from me, please leave a comment with your name and birthdate. If I don't have your mailing address, please email me the information @, and I will add you to my birthday list! If you'd like to purchase the stamp, go to the SU! store here. And, don't forget to list me as your demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time....HAPPY STAMPING!
