My Dad's 90th!

Dad-90Yesterday was my sweet Dad's 90th Birthday!  We celebrated last night with family at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Southeast Texas. 

Our Dad is a fit, fun, and full of life 90 year old!  We had so much fun.  Two of my siblings were there...my youngest brother joined via FaceTime from Oklahoma.

Us

Three of his siblings were able to join us.  His brother was visiting family in Houston.  There were 11 siblings in their family.

SiblingsHere he is with sweet little Mia!

Dad-mia

I made the cupcake toppers for his birthday cupcakes using the Make A Difference stamp set and the Golden Honey Designer Paper from the Sale-A-Bration brochure

CupcakesMia helped me make the birthday card using a retired stamp set and the Country Club Designer Series Paper.

It was a grand celebration for Dad's 90th!  Thanks for tuning in to read all about it!


Stamp Club Fun!

My local Texas Stamp Club met yesterday afternoon for a combo Holiday/First Month of Sale-A-Bration party!

Since I was under the weather before, during, and after the holidays, I had to put my Club Christmas Party on hold.  So we had a January celebration and we all had a blast visiting and crafting together.  It was like a family reunion!

Most of these ladies have been with me since my Stampin' Up! beginning!  It's a close group and we celebrate our joys and console and support each other during sorrowful and stressful times.  Even more special, this group continues to meet even when Jackie and I are in Missouri.  One of my sweet Stars team members holds the club gathering at her home and I'll ship the projects and directions and pop in virtually through FaceTime.  (Thank you, Debbie!)

Here are a few photos from our gathering...
