Stampin' Up! Birthday Greeting Cards and Water Polo

Hi Stamping Friends!!

Well this month has been a crazy, busy month. I don't think I've put away my overnight bag for weeks. By the time I unpack it, it's time to pack again. And with gas prices at 4 bucks a gallon here in SoCal, I don't even want to imagine how many greenbacks I've burned in my tank!!

In between all the driving and overnight stays, I've been busily stamping for the Greeting Card Fundraiser I did for my daughter's USA Water Polo Junior Olympics which starts this Thursday.

I created 23 assorted bundles of 5 cards in each bundle. That's 115 cards baby!! (I still have to create 10 cards, but we are not going to think about that right now.) :)

I thought I would start sharing a few of the cards I created. I used up a lot of retired products which feels amazing. And makes room for new goodies!!!

Stamps: Big News
Paper: Coastal Cabana (retired), Whisper White, SAB DSP (retired)
Accessories: Candy Dots, Deco Label Framelits, Ruffled Ribbon (retired)

Stamps: Sprinkles of Life, Four You (retired)
Paper: Whisper White, Tip Top Taupe, Lovely Lilac (REALLY Retired!) Misc. Retired DSP
Accessories: 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Tree Builder Punch, Large Polka Dot EF, Pearl Jewels, Pretty in Pink Grosgrain Ribbon (retired)

It's kind of fun to mix the old with the new. But it's actually a little stressful designing the card bundles. You want to make sure it's a nice mix of male/female, young/old, cutesy/elegant. It's not easy!!

But I am so thankful for everyone who placed orders. I'm thinking of doing another card fundraiser soon to help fund our church planting ministry here in North County. It's nice to be able to help out my family while I do something that I love!!

Hopefully in between wash, paying bills, setting up baby sitting arrangements, packing (AGAIN!!), making phone calls, etc... I will be able to share more cards tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!!
Stamp Something!
