The Secret Stamper Image Revealing Party

Hi there everyone. Hope you are having a good Monday. My how the weekends fly by so fast. We look forward and in the twinkling of an eye...the weekend is gone......POOH...gone!!!!

So Saturday we were busy spreading red mulch in my little gardens. JP filled the wheel barrel with at least 16 loads in different places. I will take my time in spreading the mulch.....that would be the easy part, unless I get some new ideas for mulch in different places. Yeah, I do that sometimes.

Sunday I woke up pretty exhausted....from all my work on Saturday. But I did get rolling for church. I had dinner already cooked, so all I had to do was heat it up for JP before I left for the revealing party.

About 3:00 I got ready to leave and meet Betty for the ride into Neenah for the Secret Stamper Image Revealing Party. Lots of women were there....maybe about 15 or so. There is one man involved in this group, but he did not come. He lives too far.

So in the top picture, you can see the cards I made with the image sent to me and the cards I made with the image I sent. The lady that sent images to me is the first row of cards on the left and the lady I sent images to is the row on the right (you can not see a few of the cards because I cut them off in the picture.)
This was another batch of cards sitting on another table. As you can see, the images sent and received are so much creativity overload!!!!
These cards were on the same table that the cards I made were on. I totally missed the table with extra images that people brought that they did not want. I took some of my images back, I can use them for Hospice cards. There was also a bulletin board full of cards too.....goodness it was amazing, all the cards.

Well, I signed up for another 6 months...May through October, maybe I will have a better 6 months, with no hitches. I did meet the lady that was sending me images. She was surprised that I did not receive April's images.....the images came today, a bit too late to make cards with. For some reason she thought the revealing party was in May.....duh! Nope, Renea emailed everyone a couple of times to remind them that the party was going to be April 23rd. I guess not everyone reads the MEMO.....oh well!

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you....on our way home from the revealing party we stopped at Dairy Queen. We had a treat, a $1.00 root beer ice cream cone. Oh my gosh was that delicious....I must take JP there for an ice cream for sure!!! On my way home from Betty's I stopped at Pic n Save and bought a pizza and got one free and hamburger and buns and seltzer water.....oh and a loaf of bread for 29 cents and a free jar of peanut that's good!

I am going to cut this post short...have to go walk Kylie, she missed her walk yesterday, I was sooooo tired!!! I will feed her and then maybe go spread a couple of piles of mulch before "Dancing with the Stars" starts. No hockey tonight, the Chicago Blackhawks are out of the running for the Stanley Cup. But it will be fun to see who wins the Cup. I will let you know.

Have a great evening and keep looking up, better days are coming.
Cheers ~ Louise

That is quite a stamping party, Louise. It is amazing how different everyone's creations are. I am sure you like some better than others but they are all quite lovely.

You did a good job shopping--lol...did you leave any money at the store? lol

I hope you have a wonderful week, Louise, and I am glad you and Kylie got your walk in. xo Diana

Hi Diana......Oh yes, so many different ideas and yes, there were a few cards that I could tell a lot of time was not spent on it. Oh I do like good deals. Festival and Pic n Save are sure coming up with deals. Yep, we got our walk in and I did move a little mulch and plant some pansies in a pot. Little by little, I should be done by!!!

Wow, that is such a good idea for swapping the images. There are a lot of great cards there all in one place. Overload of creativity. It's nice that you all live close enough that you can meet each other.

Hi Brenda....yes, pretty close in proxmidity, I kept quite a few images, now I must think of what I will send to the new lady....I am sure I will send a those birds.

Evelyn Mayfield said...

What an amazing assortment of cards and was fun reading about your foodie "deals' and I've got to admit your mention of a root-beer-ice-cream made my mouth water. Sounds delicious.

Hi Evelyn....yes it was fun seeing all those cards. I got my new secret stamper, so starts another 6 months of sending images and making cards. I love food deals and yes that root beer ice cream was mouth watering. I signed up for Swagbucks today.....are you still doing that???
