Surprises in the Mail Make Me Smile

This weekend I received  two cards in the mail that I thought I would share with you.  The first one is a digital card created in Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio.  

I was surprised to find that it was a birthday card from Stampin' Up! with a birthday discount.  Since I have so many items on my wish list this will really come in handy.  Thank you Stampin' Up!

I love how easy it is to turn a digital card into a hybrid card.  SU did this by adding some rhinestones.
You could take this further by cutting out several of the scallop circles and popping them up with dimensionals.  If you would like to learn more about My Digital Studio please contact me.  

This next card was sent to me by Kellyjean one of my roomies at the convention.  The stamp set and punch in this card was one of the Prize Patrol gifts and she won!  I asked her last week how she liked the  set and she said she thought it was going to be one of the favorites in the Holiday Mini.  Can you hardly wait to get this mini?  I think the card is so cute and Kellyjean is so sweet to think of me.

This last card is actually one created with a retired stamp set.  I wanted to share it with you because of the sweet story behind it.  One of the demonstrators at convention had made cards that she was asking others to send to her son.  He is serving our country overseas and his birthday is this month.  Just think what a smile it will bring to his face to receive so many cards but better yet for him to know that his sweet mother orchestrated the whole thing.

It makes you want to go and do something kind and thoughtful for a friend or family member.  I think I'm going to do just that...how about you?
