Swap Cards

Swap Cards 003

“She would rather light candles than curse the darkness and her glow has warmed the world.”

~Adlai Stevenson

I’m still glowing in the aftermath of last Saturday’s “Maine Stamping Day” for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. (And a good thing that is…33 degrees this morning and a high of 57 today!)   The Stamping Day was organized by Debbie Henderson, Jeannine Tarrio, Cathy Davis Autrey and Carrie Arsenault and it was wonderful!  We got on the road at 7:00 a.m., stopped for coffee and arrived in Augusta at 8:30 for more coffee, donuts and some socializing to meet new “stamping sisters.”  : )  We then all made a group project and then split up into tables for two sessions, making two cards at each session.  At lunch, which was provided,  33 of the 40 attendees participated in a card swap.  These are a few of the cards from our Stamping Peace group…Terry’s sweet “old-fashioned” card is in the front, my invitation card on the left, my upline, Stace Coombs card is in the middle, and Sue’s card is on the right.  We all used new stamp sets from the holiday catalog.  I’ll show you more of the swaps next week!  It was my very first swap ever and it was so much fun!   In the afternoon we had two more sessions, making two projects at each one.  We had a wonderful presentation about the Ronald McDonald House, and lots of amazing doorprizes. (I won the new “Cheerful Christmas” set!)  It was such a fun day and we learned lots of new techniques.  I’ll share those with you next week as well.  Until then, have a nice week-end!

  1. I have been following your posts for quite a while. You have some lovely ideas both cards and gift suggestions. I am a demonstrator in Waterboro (down near Sanford/Alfred area). We go to Florida for the winter where I teach classes on Wednesdays and Thursdays. About 25 ‘girls’ all together. We will be leaving for Arcadia, FL by the 16th of October.
    Just wanted to say ‘Hello’ and thank you for your daily inspiration. I look forward to them!
