*** DON'T FORGET to join in on my DESIGNER PAPER SHARES and RIBBON SHARE! Get a sampling of the new designer papers and ribbons from the NEW '09-'10 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog! ***

I had the nicest group of ladies at my home last night for stamp class! It's so fun to be around people that speak your "stampin' language"! I would guess that most of you know exactly what I mean by that!

Here are the class projects ....

This first card is a case between Dawn Easton's Sunflower card and Laurie Froehlich's Sunflower Thanks card. The sunflowers are created by punch Summer Sun CS with the Scallop Circle Punch, then cutting toward the center between each scallop. The leaves were created by punching Kiwi Kiss CS with the 5-Petal Flower Punch, then cutting off two "petals" for leaves.
