I am married to lovely man that just smiles at my stamping addiction, two great kids that I just could not imagine having as a part of my life....not that they are perfect...smile!!!!! I do have a furry little girl too that is just to sweet for words. Now you know a little about me I hope you enjoyed your visit and come back anytime. Happy Stamping!!!!!

Elegant Soiree Gift Box

Happy Monday!!!!!

I have this fun and fantastic group of women that come over every three months to make some cards with me and this is the projects we made back in September. 

I am just so pleased as punch that we in the whole colour renovation got the beloved Baja Breeze back so needless to say I LOVE this paper and have already gone through two packages of it....WOW

I used different stamps sets with each card but chose to keep it all matchy, matchy with colours and paper.

Stamp sets used were:  Fifth Avenue Floral, Just Believe, Lvl One Hostess Set Because I Care, lastly the Happiness Shared.

All cards had either SU's new rhinestone Gems or Pearls (loving them)

The flower on the box I got from Mary Fish's Blog at http://www.stampinpretty.com/  you may have to archive it but she was sweet enough to put on a video for those of that are visual learners....Thanks Mary!!!!

Hope you like and it is able to inspire you in some way

Happy Stamping!!!
