Saturday was a fabulous day at Stamp Fever....ALL our friends showed up and stayed to enjoy the wonderful Make and Takes, the cupcakes and munchies, the friendship, raffle drawings and FUN! If you missed the celebration festivities yesterday, don't miss the fun today from 1:00pm-4:00pm.
We will have a Stampendous Catalog Party with Vesta, an ATC swap, lots more Raffle Drawings and we will announce the Card Making Contest winners. See you there!
Now for the pictures from Saturday:
First the store got a little decorator spruce up by our own Kathy Ethington.....
 she is so creative and she added some charming vintage vignettes around the store....including the bathroom (you gotta see the bathroom but make sure you wear your reading glasses!) Kathy started our fun weekend with a wonderful demo on Friday night with Tim Holtz products.....which the store will start stocking just as soon as the order comes in.
Here's some of the fun during Tiffany's Lizzie Anne Designs Make and Take......
Here's some of the ladies showing off their newly created LAD tags with our very special Tiffany Ervin. 
I'm happy to announce that Tiffany will begin teaching classes at Stamp Fever!

I mentioned cupcakes didn't I, well there were cupcakes all decked out with the Stamp Fever logo....
Next up we had Ms. Lawn Fawn herself, Kelly Marie Alvarez with a sweet little Bake me a Cake Make and Take. (I just love how that rhymes)
So here is Kelly and Tiffany with a special visitor to the store.....this is Brian, he is SUPER husband. His wife Sharon is a big Lawn Fawn fan and she really wanted to come to Kelly's Make and Take but she had to work. So her wonderful DH showed up to meet Kelly and make a card for her. Isn't that a wonderful story....it got even better when we realized he had ridden in on the most fabulous green Vespa which he had won on a local Oldies radio station, K-Earth. (I missed getting a pic of it yesterday, but he promised Sharon would be with us today, riding the fabulous green Vespa...so photo to come).

Here's some more photos of all the happy faces of some really wonderful people......
Smiling Ivy

Two of our fabulous teachers, Sherry Goodloe and Kathy Ethington

Norma, with the charming English accent posing with her equally charming Hero Arts bicycle card. Norma is a fairly new stamper and we have had this card on display in the store for a while and everyone oohs and aahs over it!

Here's Tiffany smiling with Barbara (who's also smiling) It was just a very happy day!

I even got in on the smiling fun posing with 2 of my favorite people, the fabulously talented Tiffany and Kelly.

I'm hoping to catch a photo of the elusive Linda Foley to post tomorrow, she was very busy yesterday taking orders and ringing up purchases.

I hope to see you all at Stamp Fever today, bring your ATCs to swap or come to hang out with good friends. We will be announcing the winners of our Customer Card Making Contest, along with some more Raffle drawing fun!
