Stampin Up' - more than just ink and stamps.

My card - left and Allison - right
 One of the ways that Stampin' Up has impacted my life is the manner in which it has brought family and friends into my life.  Women who I've never met before sharing their talent and growth through inspirational blogs.  My brother and sister-in-law stopped in today and I wanted to make a Valentine's Day care.  She is a newbie - very little crafting or card making experience.  I had pulled a sample from Convention 2010 that I wanted to try (there was no label on the back of the card so I can't give credit - sorry).  She rocked it! My card is on the left and hers is on the right!  Wowser!
 

 Well it just wasn't fair that the girls were having all the fun so my son Caleb and my brother Jeff were brought to the table.  They made cute little Valentine treats with the I {heart} Hearts, the Heart punch and some skinny bags!  After they finished I had them 'exchange valentines'.  What a fun time!


Another treasured relationship that has grown from my Stampin' Up business is the group of young girls that join me on the last Friday of every month. Now these
girls know how to get crafty!  We made pinwheels, valentine treats and washer necklaces!  I've learned to love their individuality and each one has blessed my heart!

Hi, Samie!
Your blog is very nice! I enjoyed my visit, and all your pictures, too!
I read your commment on LSN about commenting *or lack of* on blogs....I'm in the same boat! Seems if you offer blog candy or something free, they come a'lookin'! Hehehehe
Just keep up what you are doing.....
Take care and STAY WARM!
