Stampin’ Up! an 18th Birthday

I have the best 18 year old any parent could possibly have asked for.  I thank God for letting me borrow one of His Angles.  He hasn’t been an angel all the time, but he knows who put him in my care.  Because of that, he gives thanks and praises.  The morning of his birthday I drove him to school on my way to work and he held my hand and said to me, “Mom, thank you for giving me life and the best childhood a kid could ever ask for.”  He had me at, ‘Mom, thank you…”


His favorite color is red and I mixed it up with a strip of banners from the Patio Party Designer Series Paper to add more color to the solid Real Red.  If you are on a tight budget and want to get your Starter Kit, make sure you add the Petite Pairs stamp set to your kit.  Now that you can get any product you want, make sure you add the items you can actually make more than a few cards with.  Stampin’ Up! has a suggested products list, but I can personally help you pick items out that will maximize your products to create as many cards as you are able.  Give me a call (707-646-1972) or email me and we will put something together for you.
