Freedom Festival Photos!!!

Hello everyone!!!! Just wanted to check in and let you see the fun I had this weekend at the Fishers Freedom Festival. I had a great was HOT one day and WINDY the next but it wasn't RAIN so I was a happy stampin' chic! Lots of people stopped by the booth (Thanks to those of you reading this that DID pop in..I so appreciate seeing you, meeting you, connecting with you!), lots took business cards and info. and I'm excited to see where this all goes. And, BIG thanks to my sweet friends who helped me at the booth and gave me some good company and coverage for potty breaks! LOL!

As for now, I'm sending in my app for the Christmas in October event here in Fishers. It's a upscale craft show where people who attend have to pay a fee to get in to shop! I'm hoping I can get my foot in the door this year.

Here are a few pics of the weekend!

Cupcakes! I LOVE Cupcakes!

I just finished making this boxed set of 8 cards tonight to put in my craft booth at the Fishers Freedom Festival. I love the ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby. SU!'s In Color Pink Pirouette perfectly matched the pink of the cupcakes on the ribbon. The clear boxes come from Papertrey Ink and the cupcake stamps are from Inkspirations. The sentiments inside says "Have your cupcake and eat it too. Happy Birthday!"
You can pre-order this box of cards now for $20 (8 cards), but they will not be available until sometime in July.

SU Kick-Off Event!

Hi Everyone! My first SU event is this next week..My Kick-Off Party. Our theme is Birthday Cards and we are making 3 cards. Two I can show you, but the 3rd we are making using a new set out of the new catty that premiers July 1st. I'm so excited about the new items......sooooo neato. I know you all will be thrilled.

This set, Choo-Choo, is from the Occasions Mini Catalog. People have until June 30th to order...isn't this train simply adorable? My mom brought her set down a few weeks ago and my oldest, age 8, had so much fun playing with it. So, when Mr. Brown came delivering my box this week, he was so excited to see that Choo-Choo was inside!

My inspiration for this card came from a gal on Splitcoaststampers. Here is the link to her card.

Thoughts and Prayers is what I used for this card. Now, I know it says "Sharing in your Sorrow" and there is good reason for know the old saying..Once a Dork, Always a Dork or something to that effect. I meant to stamp Birthday Wishes on it and just pulled out the sentiments that came with the lovely flower from Thoughts and Prayers......ack...DORK! So, the ones we will be making at the Kick-Off Event will have a birthday greeting in the corner.

Hope you all enjoy and I'm so excited to make these cards with the gals that will be attending the event. There will be lost of freebies and fun stuffs, too....and yummy treats...can't forget the treats!!!
