I’m a mom to three daughters who dance two to three times a week and even more often when they are in rehearsals. I sell quite a few of my cards to dance parents and during performance week, it’s hard to keep the dance cards in stock so I’m building my stash early. Here is one I made recently. Isn’t it pretty? I just love the pink and purple together and so do my girls!

Supplies I used:

Stamps: En Pointe
Paper: Almost Amethyst, Shimmery White, Basic Black, non SU patterned paper
Ink: StazOn Black, Almost Amethyst
Accessories: Vintage Brad, Black Gingham Ribbon, Ticket Corner Punch, Dimensionals, non SU fabric flowers

Last evening the door bell rang and in walked my dear, sweet customer, CindySue Eastenson with ALL KINDS of goodies for me! I am just can’t get over all the fun stuff she had for me! A Hope Box that she made back in October for Breast Cancer Awareness, a peppermint pattie dream, and a clear nugget box with yummy chocolate all decorated for Christmas.

And then, she brought out the cupcakes!! WOW!! I am always so proud of myself if I actually bother to make homemade frosting and just LOOK at all these special touches she put on these cupcakes! The poinsettia cupcakes were made with peppermint gum for the flower petals. So darn clever!! And the snowman cupcakes were beyond cute!

Then, she gave me a cute snowman card with a little snowman party favor. I was just in awe! CindySue is so amazingly creative and always so willing to share. What a fun surprise and my heart is positively singing! Thank YOU, CindySue!

Then, as customers filed into my Retirement party class last night . . . one of them surprised me with CHOCOLATE! All fancy and tied with a bow. I can’t tell you what a thrill that gave me! Thank you soooo much, Marlys!! So YUMMY! I’m really a lucky girl to have so much love in my life!
