Granny Mac’s Gingham Garden

My grandma, who was affectionately known as Granny Mac, had a Melon Mambo gingham apron.  And I remember a table cloth similar to the floral pattern.  The whole Gingham Garden collection reminds me of her.  She was one sweet lady and I know if she was with us today, I would be sending her this card.

Sweet Baby

One of the qualities of a good demonstrator is to be a good listener.  I listen to my customers and use their comments as constructive feedback to improve their Stamp Camp experience.  Sometimes they will ask for a card with a certain theme.  A baby boy card was requested by one of  my customers.  Being a good listener, her wish was my command.  The Itty Bitty Banner stamp set made this card versatile enough to use for not just a baby card.

The Moving Forward stamp set used on this card is official Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set.  Stampin’ UP! donates $3.00 from each set purchased to the RMHC.

Sealed with a Kiss

Sent with Love is a special bundle available for a limited time.  When I first saw it, words like patriotic, masculine, soldiers came to mind.  Mostly I sure because of the airplanes.  But after studying it for a while, I saw past the airplanes and noticed that it also had some lovely soft colors that were perfect for us gals.   So with paper & stamp set in hand, I came up with this sweet card that sends a powerful message from my softer side.   Aah, the memories of a younger day when cards were sprayed with perfume, sealed with a kiss and sent air mail.
