Happy Birthday!

Well not quite.  This month I celebrate 9 years with Stampin' Up!  I've loved all 9 years with them.  They're such a fantastic company to work for.  I really feel that they truly care about their demonstrators.  I could go on and on about the wonderful 9 years I've had, but I'll just get straight to the cards :)  Since March is my anniversary or 'birthday' month with SU I always (well at least the past couple of years) do a birthday card stamp a stack in March.  Last Saturday I had this years, I think it was the best one yet!!!!!  It's always fun, we had cake and stamped lots of fun cards!!!!  The first one I think it my favorite.  Nothing too fancy or complicated, we used the Very Vintage (I think that's the name of it) wheel for the vanilla on the background.  Then we used the Apothecary Art and labels framelits for the rest of the card.  The flowers are just lightly colored in with the markers.  One of my favorites!!!!

Of course during SAB I always like to throw in a card that showcases one of our sets.  This one is the Elementary Elegance set.  I copied this card right from our swaps from our monthly meeting.  The card I copied was done by Nichole from our January swap you can see it here, it's the 2nd card down.  I didn't copy exactly but I sure copied alot of the same elements.   

If the first one was my favorite than this one sure is a VERY close second!  I love this one.  I had a completely different card in mind when I planned the class, but wouldn't you know it as things tend to go, my original plan just wasn't going to work.  So I searched split coast and found a card similar to this, I love it and my card was planned!!!  So pretty, delicate and fun!!!!!
Finally the last one.  After designing the first 3 I though, hmmm maybe a more masculine card would be necessary so that's where this one came in.  It's the perfect card for using your scraps.  It's simple but so fun and striking!

I love all of them. I think the first one would even be a great Easter card. I wish I lived closer so I could go to some of your classes.
