Summer swaps

Hello Stampers!  I'm out of town for a few days so I don't have anything new to share today!  My youngest daughter moved into her new college apartment on Saturday, and my oldest daughter moved about 4 hours away to start her first teaching job!  She is super excited, and so am I, and she asked me to come help her set up her classroom.  So I'm currently out of town and will return this week.

Anyway, today I thought I would share with you the swaps that I received from my last team meeting.  Our theme for the month was summer.  Here they are:

Happy Birthday to me!

Hello Stampers!  Today is my birthday!  And it's a big one!!!  When my family asked me what I wanted to do today, I said I want to go out to eat and I really just want to stay home and make cards!  There aren't many people who love their job enough that that is what they want to do on their birthday!  I feel so blessed and lucky!

I also feel blessed because I received several handmade cards for my birthday!  Here are some of the cards that I received:

Demonstrator, I sometimes love to attend events that other demonstrators put on!  I recently attended a Cupcakes & Cards shoebox swap event.  There were 26 of us signed up!  We had to come with 13 completed cards to swap out, and 13 kits for the others to complete.  Then we came home with 26 cards!  We also got to eat yummy cupcakes!  It was a lot of fun!  I'm going to be sharing the cards that I received and made today and tomorrow.
