Usually ‘demo’ means to tear apart, but not today.

The last two posts I showed you the cards I made for my Upline team’s shoebox swaps. (If you missed them, you can find them here and here.) We usually gather at least two times a year to assemble the cards that each of us create. This past weekend we gathered at Mary Anne’s studio once again to do just that.

So this ‘demo’ day means building or creating – not demolition!! 🙂

I know I’ve said it before, but this group of ladies (along with several who participated from afar) is a very talented group.

I won’t be sharing them all, but here are some of the beauties we created this past weekend.

Mary Bradford is one who sent her cards in rather than attending in person. I always love seeing what she comes up with. So, so pretty…

I loved this elegant wedding card sent to us by Susan Dempsey.

I a-door-ed Jean Nesbitt’s blue door.

I also loved how she paired up Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst for non-traditional daisies in this card!

Mary “Granny” Johnson used more delicate colors, but I love them just as much.

We had two ladies, Angie Pegram and Amy Walker, use the same colors and the Eastern Palace suite of products, but came up with two entirely different cards.

Angie also created this very simple, but still very striking Birthday card.

And Amy’s other card used that adorable Adirondack chair that I’m in love with. I love how it pairs so nicely with the High Tide set. I guess I need to add that one to my wish list.

Glenda Worrell created this simple but very ‘artistic’ card using the new Crafting Forever stamp set.

And last, but certainly, not least, our fearless leader, Mary Anne, created these fantastic cards. I should really be mad at her because I did not plan to buy any of the sets she used, but after seeing these, I’m thinking they may have to land on my wish list as well. I mean, seriously, look at how cute that chef is…and the ribbon…how gorgeous is that?!?


Again, these are only a few of all the fabulous cards I received and made this past weekend. There were so many more that I loved just as much but felt this was enough to share for one post.

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. If you have any question about any of the products used for these cards, just let me know.

Thanks for stopping by today. I am honored you would take time out of your day to spend some time with me.

Hope to see you next time!
