Let's party with the Stamping with Friends ladies!

Finally have a few minutes to post photos from our "Stamping With Friends" holiday party that we had last weekend. Stamping with Friends is my downline group. Here's a pic of us with either a project that we made one of the goodies which I gave to them. Lunch was made by Eric which was hamburger curry (yum!) and rice and each gal brought a dessert for our dessert bar. Holy smokes! Did we have tons of desserts or what? Some of the ladies ate dessert before lunch. We had to try each one and I think most of us did by the time we were ready to clean up and go home. Talk about having a sugar rush after all of that dessert!!
What's a gathering with stamping ladies with projects?? Before enjoying lunch and desserts, we did a bunch of projects - this holiday card using the Blizzard wrapping paper and chocolate chip satin ribbon, simple and elegant!
We also made an ornament using a cap from the Starbuck's Frappuccino mocha bottles. I saved up a stash from my morning "gotta have mocha when I get up" habit {wink!}. Have you all tried the holiday mocha? It's Chocolate Peppermint - oh yummy!! Here's the finished ornament on my tree. I used the deer from the Moose You stamp set and the famous circle scalloped punch. Got the idea from Susan to use one of the punched red dots for the deer's nose - so is this Rudolph??
Each gal that came received a stack of monogram cards with envelopes from me. I tied them up using the largest size from the twill tape pack.
We also did a card swap, so I will be posting those beautiful cards sometime soon. Oh! I have another project that we also did kind of a last minute decision to do this, but I will save that for another day. I won't promise tomorrow because I'm supposed to be wrapping gifts right now! I just HAD to post because I feel so bad that I didn't have the time to share this wonderful event with you! I do need to get the wrapping done today! I just finished making candied pecans (thanks Crystal for the family secret recipe!!!!) I gotta bake my brownies by this weekend too! Let's turn the clock back a couple of weeks. Who could use more time?? Anyway, thanks for stopping in today!
