I know that fast and simple cards are fun, easy, and economical . . . especially timewise, but who doesn't love an elegant card now and then?! Those that attended my Big Shot Class last week really enjoyed making this card . . . I did, too!
I think it has the look of a stained glass window! The Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper behind the lattice cut out makes it so! I loved using my Big Shot and accessories to create this card! On a side note, I will have to change the greeting to "With Sympathy" this week to send to someone dear that's grieving a great loss. I do love having handstamped cards to send for such times as this.

I do have a few photos to share from my time at Stampin' Up! Leadership in Houston, TX. I had a wonderful time and as always, Stampin' Up! delighted its demonstrators numerous times!
It's difficult to choose a favorite part of Leadership, so I'll begin with one. . . Manager's Reception. Stampin' Up! adds an extra special event for those that achieve the level of manager. This year we were treated to an evening of fun, food, and surprises at the Houston Aquarium! Oh, did I mention the food? It was amazing! I think I ate my weight equivalent in chocolate covered strawberries! I got caught here!
There were scary parts. . . on the train ride . . . this jumped out of the water to surprise us! Some girls screamed. . . not me!
A very patient and wet man remained in one of the many fish tanks with this sign for photo ops! So fun! This is my friend and roomie, Jodi Reinert.
The theme is captured on his sign. . . Be a Big Fish! I'm so grateful that I was considered a Big Fish so I could attend!
