TEENY TINY TAGS...

All the cards I've made for you this month have been with retiring stamp sets. This one is no exception.  This tiny little set is teeny, and fits in the smallest places which comes in handy when all you have is an itty-bitty area to stamp...

WITH LOVE...

Happy Mother's Day

After church today, we are going to our oldest daughter and son-in-law's home for lunch. We have planned a casual barbecue and potluck without fancy linens, china and centerpieces. Everyone is in the mood to just relax and have fun. How about you. What are you doing for Mother's Day?

With Love,  Linda

TAYLOR SWIFT...

A friend of mine, Lila, mentioned that she was trying to think of a fun way to tell her three young granddaughters that she had purchased tickets to attend a Taylor Swift concert. I immediately thought of an idea... I made these (fake) tickets and put them inside three red paper purses for each little girl.

Taylor

There are lots of great reasons I love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Getting to do things like this is the best reason of all. I wish I could be there when they look inside their purses!  (But I know Lila will tell me all about it - and about the concert too!)
