Stampin’ Up! Happy & Blog Candy on FB

Each time I see this card I smile… actually I almost chuckle.  Why?  Because I was trying to make a sunflower and instead it looks like a daisy.  I want to break out in song when I see it… You are my sunshine, my only sunshine… you make me happy when skies…. you know the rest… LoL.

ATCAS summer

I'm addicted to Clean and Simple, no pun intended… LoL.  I hope your Summer has been a joyful one and you have made fond memories you will remember forever.  Me, it's six months taken away from my life and the funny thing is next year I will have to think hard of what I did this Summer.

When we deploy we have gaps in our memories.  We remember years, days, and moments according to the year we were deployed.  We all go through it and it's something we get used to (sometimes).  I'm on my third deployment and I must tell the world that although I'm away from family & friends… I have a whole new set of friends.

I've made friends on this deployment that I will never forget and I have also made so many more friends with some of my blog subscribers.  You have sent me cards and care packages… I know no other way to express my gratitude except to post it here for the world to know that I APPRECIATE YOU!

…….and I appreciate that Stampin' Up! is a company that supports our military 110%.  Here's a sweet video that describes 100% how I feel about the friendships I have made since I became a demonstrator.  For those of you who know me personally, professionally, or on any other level know that Stampin' Up! is my life.  I AM LIVING PROOF!

You too WILL experience the same friendships with my Circle of Pals and as an added bonus you also reap the benefits of a group bigger than any other… the PALS.  We are connected virtually and share an ethusiasm for card making, scrapbooking, and other paper crafts.  Click here to check out the world of stamping that you're missing out on.

  1. A beautiful CAS card Maggie. The flower is beautiful, no matter what it’s called, and it certainly has a Happy Summer feeling!
    Thank you so much for joining us at ATCAS – Sylvia xx

  2. Your card SCREAMS summer!!! I hope you’ll link up at 52 Card Pickup this week!

    Maggie, I think this is hands-down my favorite card you’ve made. Sometimes those cards we “intend” to make that turn out to be something completely different (sunflower vs. daisy) end up being absolutely the best! You rock & this is absolutely fun, bright and so very happy! I LOVE it!! Thanks for sharing ~ hugs!

  4. Yay….I made it….I was ready to give up.

    I love your Sundaisy…and, yes, you made me smile! The sentiment is soooo true. Love the colors and the butterflies are the perfect added touch. Thanks so much for sharing Maggie. You are awesome!

  5. I love your sunflower/daisy. Which ever it is it makes me smile, too!

  6. Sunflowers are my favorite flower, and yellow is my favorite color. I love the card! Thank you.

  7. Love this one, too!
