flowers for you - yamstamps

I thought I’d share a non-holiday card with you! Well, I guess this could be a holiday card if you’re going away somewhere warm….I mean non-Christmas. This card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Blooms and Wishes set, and one of my current favourite colours – Sweet Sugarplum. Other colours used here: Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sky and Mint Macaron. This simple, one layer card is great for letting someone know you’re thinking about them – whatever occasion, or non-occasion it might be!

I guess I’m also in a more tropical state of mind (aka JETLAG) since I’ve recently returned from time away in Hawaii!! I was fortunate enough to travel once again with the Burlington Teen Tour Band. These talented teenagers were invited as the only non-American group to participate in the 75th Commemoration of the Pearl Harbour attacks, as well as the Waikiki Holiday Parade. I went along as one of the chaperones and photographers. It truly was a wonderful experience, especially as we were accompanied by a survivor of Pearl Harbour, Bernie Comito, and his wife Jackie. Having them present really made the whole experience so much more meaningful for all of us.

I am so grateful to have been part of this trip! You can find out more about the Burlington Teen Tour Band at their website.   As a former member, I love that my child is now part of this organization, and that so many of my fellow alumni have children involved these days as well! I think that speaks volumes for the organization and the memories we have of taking part.

In the meantime, I think I have caught up on laundry, and working my way through my “to do” list of things that might have been on the backburner for a bit! It’s back at it full speed – Card Class this week, Stampers Club and Tin of Tags Class next week, and one more Private Class to go before I focus on online projects for the rest of the month! Oh – and I’m looking for someone to host my first Sale-a-Bration class in the new year – will it be you? Contact me to book a date – there may be a bonus if you’re the first one!!! (hint hint!)
