SHOEBOX Swap at Lynn's house

Oh my gosh!!! We had such an awesome time. Lynn suggested that we do a shoebox swap. This was for me, Crystal T., Michele M. Donna H & Kim, but Kim had to work. We had such an awesome time, and this was the first time the IWIA (I Want It All - club name we gave ourselves... HAHAHAHHA!), got to meet Michele. Now she's a IWIA club member!!! Instead of a democracy, you know, President, VP, etc... we decided it should be royalty. Donna is the queen. That goes without saying!! I am the court jester!! HAHAHAHH!! Go figure!

These are the wonderful cards that we made; I hope you all enjoy them as much as we had fun making them.

this one below, Lynn made as a thank you card for her birthday present. It made me cry... because of the Shar-pei. It's so gorgeous!

It's a Dog's Life...

Well... it's always a good night when friends get together and stamp. But it's even MORE fun when you order chinese food in and have wine coolers chilled, just a waitin' for ya!!! YUMMM!!! I don't know what got my mouth watering more... chinese food and wine coolers or stampin' with my friends!! They are both delicious!!

My friend Lynn H. has been talking about getting together and stamping some "dog themed" cards for a friend of hers. I don't have any dog stamps, but I have paper and more than happy to stamp... so FINALLY!!! We got together. Stampin' on a Mission!!!

This is what we came up with in between eating, drinking and being merry! I sure hope her friend likes them as much as we did making them. Thanks Lynn H. Donna H. & Kim B!!!! Had a blast!!! (PS)... Pam... we missed you!!!!
