An Evening with Friends

   I had a ball last night with my daughter-in-law Daphene, my friend Lorie and her daughter Hannah, and Melissa, a friend who moved to Alabama quite a few years ago, and I have only seen her twice since then. We talked like a house afire, stamped, and just enjoyed each other's company. Melissa was one of the people who got started with stamping when I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, in fact, I think she might have been my first hostess, but Lorie never did get into it, so it was pretty amazing to have her over to make a card.
   I couldn't find my camera, of course, so I had to take pictures with my phone, which I don't do very well with, so I apologize for the quality of the pictures.  I don't know why the pictures were striped with shadows, that doesn't happen when I use my regular camera. We used a white card, layered with a colored, embossed layer, and then die cut a centerpiece and stamped it. They are all so beautiful!

 First up is Daphene and her card:

   I hope we can get together like this again and maybe do some scrapbooking, it is so much fun to do with other people.  Girls, y'all look so good! Lorie, could I please have some of your hair?
