SU I Like Your Style…

My very first blog entry began with this whimsical, girly  SU stamp set. If you go to that entry, you will see why I became a SU demonstrator and  subsequently created this blog to share my journey. This set has so many  other memories associated with it- I had a surprise birthday party four years ago for my daughter that used these colors. This stamp set actually inspired the whole centerpiece which consisted of  the stacked mini hat boxes topped with the jewelry holder. However, I did not even use the stamp set for the invitations! She did make simple thank you cards with it though sadly I have no picture of them. I did find this in my photo album:


For The Paper Players # 134 Challenge – In Stitches this week, I made my very first Easel Card using the SU I Like Your Style stamp set. The sewing theme of a dress form “fits” right in…

SU! I Like Your Style

Here is the card closed as you take it out of the envelope:

… a Birthday Surprise leads me here…

Imagine the look on my face when I opened my birthday gift this year from my husband to find a card I made!  But an even bigger surprise lurked inside the card…a handmade gift certificate  for two with the  words “Stampin’ Up Convention 2012- Salt Lake City ” on it. I was amazed but not entirely surprised at  his generous gift (he’s such a sweetheart) ! I immediately thought the tickets were for me and my bestie stamping pal, Wendy. But I was wrong and even more astonished  that HE was going!!
