My grandmother, who's birthday was today, was a stickler for us sending thank you cards for all gifts received for holidays and special occasions. I remember feeling so guilty when, months after my wedding, she mentioned, "Aunt Mary told me she never received a thank you card from you." To this day, every time I use my favorite paring knife, I think of Aunt Mary, my grandmother, and that thank you card!
It's been a very busy month and I found myself needing a new stack of thank you cards. I wanted something cheerful and summery and the new Delightful Daisy Daisy Designer Series Paper (available June 1) is just the perfect thing. I really like this bigger patterns for creating quick, simple cards. it really doesn't get much easier than this! The hardest part is going to be sitting down and addressing all of them!
I send thank you cards each month to everyone who attends a class or makes a purchase from me. So, you should be watching your mailbox for your own very special thank you!

The Scenic Sayings stamp set was on my "Must Have" list last year, and is retiring at the end of May. I'm pretty sure I bought it just for the "Oh Happy Day" sentiment! And as you can see, I used it a lot! It was just the perfect size and could be used a a nice variety of happy occasions.
And the set made perfect thank you cards, too!
Sadly, the Serene Scenery paper is all sold out, but the navy and white Floral Boutique and Seaside Shore papers are still available. Inventory is low though, so order your soon!

This Friday's sketch challenge was rather fun. It takes very simple layers, and gives you a fun opportunity to showcase some of that designer series paper you have collected. It also gave me the chance to use the Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper and 3/8 Metallic Duo Ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration catalogs.

Saturday was my birthday! I got to spend it doing what I love - stamping and crafting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world.
Saturday, at the World Card Making Day 2016 (#WCMD2016) there was a large card swap. Demonstrators from all over brought 50 cards each to swap with each other. Such talent! I made thank you cards in classic Night of Navy and Whisper White.

Welcome to my post for this the NC Demo October Blog Hop! This month's theme focused on Giving Thanks and being thankful.
I truly am thankful for the love and support from my family. They are my rock and I wouldn't be the same person I am without them. And I'm thankful for you...my Stampin' Up! family. You make it possible to "do what I love and love what I do"!
It may be early in the season, but Thanksgiving will be here sooner than we know! This weekend, I was trying out some ideas for my table settings. I think the copper foiled night of navy print from the Petals and Paisley's designer series paper has made the cut! I think it just looks so elegant, don't you?
And won't my guests be surprised when they find out what's hiding inside my box! (Oh...I love those candies! I hope they last until Thanksgiving!)
