#356 – Blooms & Wishes – May 22, 2018

I promised to share some of my favorite retiring stamp sets as we count down to the end of the catalog year.  I LOVE “Blooms & Wishes”.  The fonts are elegant and a great mix for the watercolor style flowers.  I also love the color gray with just about anything!

If you could play any instrument, which one would you choose?  I think I would like to be able to play drums in a rock band and play classical piano.  A girl can dream!!!

#354 – Royal-TEA Class – May 20, 2018

The above cards were received by successful Canadian demonstrator, Karen Duke.  Karen recently celebrated her million dollar sales milestone and she was a guest at SU and spoiled for several days. The lovely cards accompanied her gifts.  It is amazing how “on-trend” the Queen is with our SU colors!  I thought Queen Elizabeth looked lovely yesterday.  Such bright and cheerful colors!  Lemon Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape!  The hat is so much fun!!!

Speaking of SU colors…
Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Blackberry Bliss, Petal Pink, Balmy Blue, Soft Sea Foam, Gorgeous Grape and Emerald Envy

We had a fun day yesterday at the Royal-TEA class!  A big thank you for those who were able to join us!

The Queen even popped in for a “spot of tea”.
We watched a recording of the wedding on TV.
We “ooed” and “ahed” over the clothes, the hats, the music and the kiss. It was a magical day!

We had pretty treats!  I pulled out platters from my own wedding many years ago!

We had scones.

I even pulled out our wedding china.  Mikasa Antique Lace
I need to use it more often.  It does not get “love” sitting in the china cabinet.
Kathy Meyer stopped to have a chat with the Queen.
Everyone looked lovely with their stylish hats!  A lot of creativity!!!
It will be fun to look back on this day in history and know that we had a small part in the festivities!  Stampin’ Hugs!

Oh happy day!!!

#353 – Always & Forever – May 19, 2018

The cards above use the retiring “Always & Forever” stamp set (pg. 89 – Annual Catalog). It seemed appropriate for the Royal Wedding today.   I’ve been watching a little bit this morning, while I get ready for class.  I love the simplicity of Meghan’s dress and all of the fun hats.

Winner for today’s drawing:  Dot Alcorn
Thank you stopping by and leaving a comment.

Looking forward to a fun ROYAL-tea class this morning.   Best wishes to Harry & Meghan as they start their new lives together.  I really believe that this couple will be a great example of two people coming together and making a positive difference in the world.
