Saturday Stamping Fun!

As you can see from this group shot, we had a big stamping get together at L&L Rubber Stamps store in Ephrata PA yesterday. What a fun day we all had!! This was our 2nd gathering, and it's grown considerably since the last one! I was so happy to meet some new stampers and get re-acquainted with those I've met before. This is the best therapy for the cabin fever I've been feeling after such a long, cold winter!
This is LeAnne Pugliese and Cathy Mac. If you click on each name, you'll be taken to their blog or gallery. I just LOVE the smiles on their faces! If you want to see some adorable baby photos, just browse through LeAnne's blog and you'll find some priceless Cassidy expressions :) I've been following LeAnne's blog for a while and I just love what she can do with her stamps and cardstock! I've learned so much from her and I still learn every day! This was the first time I've met Cathy, but she's been commenting on my cards at SCS for quite some time and I didn't even realize who she was! I'm glad I got to meet you Cathy, and I look forward to seeing you again soon!
This is Mary Anne and her daughter Dee. I've visited Mary Anne's blog ever since I discovered it, and I was so happy to finally get to meet her in person. Her gorgeous daughter Dee is getting married later this year, and I know this is an exciting time for both Mom and daughter. Mary Anne has done a lot of DT work with various teams, and currently has a blog hop post for Joan's Gardens! You go girl! You create some amazing and beautiful cards and I love your style!
This is Pattie Goldman, Julie Smith, and Janice Melton from left to right. These talented stampers are so much fun to stamp with, and always so helpful with answering questions for those of us who are just learning. It was great to see you ladies again and watch you stamping and coloring those beautiful images! I was amazed to see how quickly and efficiently these ladies stamped off images, colored them, and made cards with them. I was busy running my mouth and chatting with everyone yesterday and only made one card for myself - but I could just sit and watch these ladies in action and be completely satisfied doing that!
Here are the "Purple Paper Crafters" !! LOL Denise gave us a name and I'm not sure if I got it right, but you get the idea. Four of us all showed up in purple! Denise and I both love the color purple and even our sneakers had purple accents, but Denise outdid all of us by showing up with a big, beautiful lavender carry-all that held all her stamping goodies! Denise, you win the purple prize package hands down ;)
That's Korin on the left (the owner of Sweet'nSassy Stamps), Denise, myself, and Pattie. I just had to make our links purple *snort*
Blogger is only allowing me to post 5 pictures at a time, so scroll down to the next post for more photos :)

I can just hear all the laughing and gabbing you girls did. I'm so glad you got to get out with all these girls after this long, hard winter and have some crafting fun.

Diane Jaquay said...

oooh, wish I'd known about this, I could have popped over to meet you Carol! Maybe next time :)

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

Oh I am so envious!! I would have loved to have been there. Some day I just may have to drive 4 hours to join you girls. It would be so neat to meet so many familiar faces from blog land in person. You would not be having a get together in June would you? We camp in Lancaster for 10 days then. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Love the purple!!
