Gifts from My Pals

Who doesn’t like gifts? I know I love them and am so grateful to have such sweet friends.  Friends I would have never met if it weren’t joining Stampin’ Up!

Card Nicole Watt

Nicole Watt of Pixel Maven’s Retreat, is a very talented friend Pal gave this gorgeous Awesomeness card and coaster to me and the funny thing about crafters is that we love to give.  Coasters are the easiest project for a DIY gift and so inexpensive to make.  You can stamp directly on them and spray a clear coat of spray glue or bake them at 350 for 30 minutes.  I’ll be having a future class, so subscribe to my blog (if you don’t already) and find out real soon when I’ll be teaching this technique).

Card Karen Bone

This lovely card was a Convention Pals Card swap and each year I receive card swaps from my Pals and each year I only pass on a handful of them.  Why? Because they are so precious and cute I never want to give them away, but keep them for myself… LOL.

Blog Signature

Received a Beautiful Card

I received the most beautiful card in the mail today.  As many of you know, I signed up to a monthly Stampin’ Up! only card swap on Facebook and although I have received many other beautiful cards, I have decided to start sharing some of them on my blog as of today.  It’s great to share what you love through card swaps.  Not to mention the wonderful friendships you make along the way.  =)

This card was designed by Heather Petsche.  After reading the sweet note she wrote, I learned that we have two things in common!  The Military and Card Making… Yay!  My TWO favorite things in the whole-wide world.  Sweeeeeet!  Heather started stamping while she was stationed overseas and has been doing it ever since.  She has branched out and now makes her own candles and soaps… I also LOVE them both!  What makes it so sweet is that she uses Stampin’ Up! products with them.

Visit and ‘LIKE’ her on Facebook.
She doesn’t have a blog (yet), so please leave her a comment here letting her know how beautiful her card is.
