Hostess Spring 10

Hi Stamping Friends!

Strange name for a post title huh?!  Well, this is what I nicknamed my current Hostess Club.  I give each club a nickname, that way I can set them up as a group in my email contacts, and when I email them, I just email the group!  One of the most rewarding things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (besides the discount!) is how many new friendships I have made through my monthly Hostess Clubs.  I really enjoy getting to visit with these gals each month. And since I keep each group to a max of 6 members, we really get some quality time together.

So why did I bring all this up?  Beacuse today's card is another one that we made on Sunday at my Spring 10 Hostess gathering.  This card (like most of them!) was CASEd from one I saw on the web somewhere. Again, I don't know where, so I apologize to the original creator!
Sorry about the fuzzy pic.  I have a love/hate realtionship with my camera... I love to hate it! It's a really nice camera, but I just can't seem to get it to do what I want, even after taking two photography classes.  I'm sure it's the photographer, more than the camera, but it's easier to blame the camera.

This card has a So Saffron base layered with a piece of DSP from the Sahdes of Spring pack. The flower "stamp" is from the With All My Heart set in the Occasions Mini Catalog and it is punched using the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch, also in the Mini and stamped in Orchid Opulence. The leaves and stem are from the Sweetheart set that is not in any catalog, but is still for sale. It is stamped in Certainly Celery.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Well Scripted set, also from the Mini. The tag is punched out using the Lots of Tags Embosslit set.

Remember, if you are in the Visalia/Exeter/Tulare/Tipton area and would be interesting in making fun cards like this one, contact me.  My next Hostess Club will be starting in July.  And I'll try to think up a cuter name for that group.  Maybe Stampin' Summer Fun 10.
