Today I have another card that I made some quick changes to and the card looks completely different.  First is a card that Tina designed for our Demonstrator stamping event.  She used the All My Love Designer Paper with the Meant to Be Stamp Set and Be Mine Stitched Framelits to create this adorable card.  I love the lacy heart and the pink colors.  The card base is Soft Seafoam.

The second card was turned to be portrait.  The card base was changed to Lovely Lipstick and stamp set to Hey Love.  I stayed with the All My Love Designer Paper.  Oh my gosh, Hey Love is such an adorable set, I just had to get it and look how cute this card turned out.

Hostess Appreciation

Last night was my annual Hostess Appreciation Party.  I host a dinner with a little stamping for everyone who has been a hostess over the past year.  We had such a great time together.  I put a little goodie at each spot because chocolate is good for everyone, right.

Forever Love Stamp Set, All My Love Designer Paper, Treat Holder
I saw this cutie on Pinterest and knew that is was perfect as a quick little Thank You gift.  It hold 2 Merci Chocolates.  I said my Thank You’s and then we had a wonderful dinner catered by Olive Garden.  Check out the Build Your Own Pasta Bar – YUM!!

Hostess Appreciation Party
I made a Thank You card for everyone with a little gift inside.  I needed a design quickly so I used one of the cards from Saturday’s Demo Make & Take and changed colors and designer paper.  Look how those two things made such a huge difference in the cards.

Beauty Abounds Stamp Set, Wonderful Romance Designer Paper
This is the card from Saturday.  It uses the Beauty Abounds stamp set (love those litttle butterfly) with the Floral Romance designer paper and Fresh Fig and Pear Pizzazz color combo.
