Awesome team cards! and Creative Escape

Greetings!  Hope you all are keeping cool:)  I have gone from being really HOT up in the kitchen (canning spaghetti sauce) to downstairs stamping – where it is cooooool!

We had our team meeting 2 days ago.  I love our meetings!  This meeting we learned a few neat tricks and perfected a few techniques.

We had some absolutely AWESOME swap cards – that means everyone brought a card and swapped with everyone else so you go home with all these wonderful samples to make.  It really spurs the creative juices!  I’d like to share them with you too!
