Cards for the Troops - Armed Forces Day !

Today was the big day - Stamping for the Troops ! What a wonderful morning spent making all occasion cards to be sent to military men and women at forward deployed bases overseas. We were honored to have a Navy JROTC Class from North Augusta High School join us in making cards. These young men and women selflessly gave up their Saturday morning to show their support for our active duty military. Plus - I think they actually enjoyed the morning. I know I sure did ! Here are some pictures of our groups of stampers:

Here are samples of some of the cards we made. All of these cards are CASEed from somewhere. I regret that I can't give credit to the original designers - just know that myself, along with everyone helping today, "loved" the cards ! For me, I thank you for sharing your creativity - I'd be lost without it !
Until next time -- have a Stamp Happy weekend !

Biker's Week - Myrtle Beach

Steve and I went to the beach for Mother's Day weekend. It was a wonderful weekend but little did we know that we were driving right into the middle of Biker's Week.

We met my friend, Jan and her hubby down there; and then my niece (Laurin) joined us for dinner. We talked and laughed the night away.

The Beaver Bar and the SuckBangBlow are 2 popular biker bars in Murrells Inlet. Very interesting, indeed !

This is my brother, Bo, and his wife, Toma. They came down to the beach so we met them for lunch on Mother's Day.

All Day Crop in Augusta

Recently, I had the pleasure of spending the day with these wonderful ladies, doing what we all love to do -- stamping and scrapbooking !! It was an all day crop in recognition of National Scrapbooking Day, at the Augusta Historical Society.

This is the make-n-take I had available for everyone. I used my favorite new stamp set - Vintage Vogue; Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum, and Very Vanilla cardstock; Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum, and Always Artichoke Classic ink. It's hard to see but I added half pearls to the center of the flowers. I was pleased with the layout and the ladies all seemed to like it as well.

It was a GREAT day !
