Visiting the Ronald McDonald House in Baltimore is one of the many benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Yes, benefits. By visiting and stamping (love doing that!) with the people at the house, I am able to give them some much needed time "just playing". I go to the RMDH every month and stamp with the residents that are staying there. I get to meet some amazing people, both patients and grow fond of many, even though I sometimes forget their names. This picture is of Denise and I after stamping tonight. Stamping with them is therapy for both of us.

Tomorrow, I will post a picture of some of the artists and their creations...

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!!! I copied this card from Jan Tinkelberg and sent the card to my daughter, Christine who just loves Ireland. The shamrock was made up of 4 punched out hearts from the 3 heart punch and matching stamp set, I {heart} hearts - in the Occasions mini catalog. I used the border punch from the sale a bration catalog and the matching corner punch to make the frame around the shamrock. For the background of the card, I used the background stamp, Pretty Petals. I didn't have any ribbon that matched, so I just used a sponge dauber, ink and dyed the white taffeta ribbon. WOW! now I have 48+ colors of taffeta ribbon whenever I want.

ENJOY! and Spread the Joy, send someone a card. Do it today!

Yes, I am finally getting around to posting some inspiration. It has been way too long! I have been busy, but also my motivation for making cards was just not there. Now that the weather is warming up and the snow has melted! YEAH and even the Sun is Shining, I am feeling better.

The inspiration attached uses some of the In colors and the new border punch that is FREE for a $50 purchase during sale a bration. Sale a bration is just for another 2 weeks and ends March 31st. The stamp set that I used is For All You Do and the Thanks is from the set, Thank You Kindly and both of these sets are in the Idea Book and Catalog.

Spring is Coming!   Things are brightening outside, grass is turning green, buds are appearing on plants and the daffodils are emerging and soon will be in bloom.   So, why don't you brighten someone's day and send them a card.    I dare you!
