Stamp-a-Stack Saturday is Three Stamp-a-Stack classes in one day! There are three different SAS classes going on, and you can take one, two or all three, it's up to you. You can do the Birthday SAS, The Thank You SAS and/or the Thinking of You SAS. In each SAS class you will make 6 cards (2 each of 3 different designs) and each SAS costs $15 or is FREE with a minimum $20 order at the SAS. If you want to take all three SAS classes, cost is $40 or FREE with a minimum $50 order. Stamp-a-Stack Saturday is August 6, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until you finish all your gorgeous cards)

I recently received some wonderful news, and it called for an awesome card. This is what I came up with. I will be sending it to my son, Andrew, and my daughter-in-law Mo, to congratulate them on their pregnancy.

That's right, I am going to be a grandma for the very first time. I am so excited. Yesterday I got my first ultrasound photo, and it was adorable!

This is what the Bundle looks like

Here are just a few samples made by other demonstrators.

What a wonderful patriotic card designed and made by Nancy Ferb.

I think this is a wonderful birthday card.  But I think it would also be great for a sympathy card or get well or even just a thinking of you to put a smile on someone's face.  The gorgeous card was made by Ilina Crouse.

Any why not a baby card?  Unfortunately there is no watermark on this card, and I cannot locate the artist who shared it!  If you are the artist of this wonderful creation, please let me know.  I would love to give you credit!

This is a mere sampling of the versatility of this stamp set.  It can also be used for Halloween or a masculine card...  the possibilities are endless.  You will truly be amazed by all of the creative possibilities of this stamp set,  and it won't take long for it to become your "go to" stamp set in a pinch!
