so MANY cards!!

we were busy. we had so much fun!! and we accomplished WAY more than i EVER thought possible! This is something i've ALWAYS wanted to do since i've become a demo. When SU! gears up for the release of a new caty...they also release the retired list. Usually i have to say goodbye to many items in my stamp haven....
 So i started pulling paper, embellishments and ribbon down that would match and tried by best to design cards around as much retired product as i could. Then my dear friends came and stamped like crazy(while being busy mommas as well) i would say we pretty consistently had 2-3 mom's sitting and stamping @ all times over 4 hrs. while the others had to assist with random needs of our 14 children running wild in my not so big house as it was quite chilly outside!!! so fun...

We hope to ship all 74 cards off to a Ronald McDonald location, for families to use as the need arises.
 Here we used the pennant punch to punch out a bunch of dsp triangles. tacked them on and then i sewed a vertical line down the center of them....
cased from the NEW caty!!;))
ps. stay tuned for the other designs of cards we stamped!! :)
