Beautiful Wings

Hi Stamping Friends!

Yesterday I had my Spring Hostess Club gals over for an afternoon of stamping fun.  I just love these ladies!  They are so kind and so much fun to be around.  One gal told us how she had a medical procedure one Monday morning and wasn't feeling well at all when she got home that afternoon.  The next morning she woke up and read her obituary in the newspaper!  What a hoot!  Turns out there was another lady in town with her exact name that had passed away.  Over the years she has gotten phone calls for this woman.  Their medical records have been mixed up before at the doctors office.  Her husband told her she better go to the county office and make sure they send the death certificate to the right husband.  :)

I try to teach my ladies a new technique each month.  I have been feeling very unispired lately, but I did find a few ideas to CASE.  :)  With this card I showed them the pop-up spiral technique.  We used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit to add butterflies to the inside of the card.  Silly me, I forgot to take a picture of the inside!  But here's the outside, which was CASEd from some wonderful stamper, but I don't remember who. Sorry! Thanks for sharing your creativity with me!

The card base is Pretty In Pink.  The DSP is from the Sweet Pea DSP stack in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  The grass stamp is Inspired By Nature.  The birthday oval and sentiment are from the SAB set Vintage Labels. And of course the fabulous butterflies are punched out using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die.


I sent out my March Stampin' Up! newsletter today. Tons of ladies have been bugging me to do a birthday card stamp camp.  So I scheduled one!  If you live in the Visalia/Tulare/Tipton/Exeter area and want to stamp some fabulous birthday cards on March 20 or 21, send me an email and I'll get you the details.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
