Today Tracey and I rode to Pine Lily Retreat in LaCombe. LA. (Our group is going the first weekend in June for a scrap weekend-can’t wait!) We met with the owner, Kaki DeCarlo and have worked out a time that we are going to be doing classes. Our first class will be mid-June. So please, stay tuned and follow me on facebook for details!!
     I made this card for my son’s birthday! The “man” stampset has been around for a little while and is in the new catalog with the kits. It was designed for men to use (real men DO stamp!) It even comes with cardstock and envelopes, and a stamp pad. The stamps are very cute. Here is the link-you might be interested for the men in your life–mine has only made me 1 card in 10 years of stampin’, but I use it to make manly cards!

Happy stampin’,
