Kickin’ Off the Holiday Stamping Retreat …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

A lovely weekend has come to an end and a new adventure begins! We had a wonderful time at our annual Holiday Stamping Retreat this weekend … cute little welcome gifts on their beds when they arrived (chocolates were only part of it) and surprises, great cards and the best companionship all weekend.

I also adorned the mantle with a hand stamped gift for each guest to take home as a “Thank You” for attending. These boxes contain 4 gift tags that they can keep and were created with the Christmas Traditions Punch box located on pages 2 and 3 of the Holiday Catalog

After a hearty dinner of Homemade Sausage & Wild Rice and Vegetable Beef Soups along with bread, salad and more we ready for a little stamping …

The room was all ready for our stamping session and included a sweet little treat! All of their projects are pre-cut and packaged up for easy accessibility.  All they have to do is pull out the packet with that cards projects that’s up next and to stamp …

Plus there is always plenty of time to take a little break and have some fun …

Yes that is me as Santa Claus! Just have a little fun with my Stampin’ Friends Cindy and Sarah Bunkleman.  Those little Holiday props that I picked up at the Dollar Store sure made for some extra fun moments, and new memories!!

I will have more to share with you from our Holiday Stamping Retreat in the coming days; the cards we made and the cards we swapped … Plus, if you hop onto my Facebook page you may find some more fun as I share pictures of our Stampin’ Up! OnStage event with you.

Hope you have a wonderful week ~
