Spring Card

I have never tried one of these, although I have seen some super cute samples. Today's TLC challenge was to make one. It was super easy and super fun. I think this is a cute idea for a child's birthday card. I had this image already cut and mounted from my swaps, so I thought I would save a little time and use it. Can I just say how nice it feels to sit down and stamp just for me? I have quite a few thank you's that I need to make, also. I can't wait to take some more time to sit and make those. My daugther has her 5 year check up and kindergarten shots today. Yuck! She is scared, but I promised to take her to the park afterwards with a friend. Then it is off to football with my son. They are finally using the pads and the helmet together. This should be interesting! LOL!

Also, I promised some Convention highlights!

1. We all recieved the new Ronald McDonald set on the last day. Let me set this up for you: We all watched the *Barbie* commercial on the big screens. Imagine two pre-teen girls playing barbies in the dream house. There are two barbies with SU! aprons, swap bags and they are wearing logo shirts. The Dream House has been decorated with Decor Elements. There is a "Convention Goer Barbie" song playing in the background. They are both excited for next year's convention when all of a sudden the doorbell rings. Barbie answers the door to find UPS Ken Doll holding a Stampin' Up! box. Can you say HILARIOUS!!!!!! So...then a real Mr. Brown comes out holding a box and Shelli asks who it is for. He then says," EVERYONE!!!!". We all scream as a huge UPS truck pulls out into the audience, the prize patrol wearing brown UPS shirts and we each get the set. There is confetti going EVERYWHERE!!! So much fun!!!!!

2. Stampin' Up! has partnered with Sizzix! I am really excited. The dies are great and I can't wait to see more!!!

I had a lot of fun with my demo friends! HI Kami, Heather, Evie, Stephanie, etc!!! Thanks for making it great! Also, thanks for the fun birthday gifts!

Forgot to mention...Imagine my horror as my side-line friend Stephanie proceeds to get the entire Make and Take group to sing Happy Birthday to me! Beet Red!!!!
