May Stampin’ Up!dates

Hi, Stampers!

Well, April is over and May is here! I’m sure there are many of you who are ready to get your life back, but this quarantine brought my daughter back home! I’m not going to complain one bit. Sarah is a “foodie” and, when she isn’t studying, she loves to bake. Here is a photo of her Cardamom Rolls. They were wonderful!! If you would like the recipe, just leave me a comment.

This time of year is always bittersweet to me – saying goodbye to both the Annual and Mini Catalogs! Although it’s always sad to see some favorites go, Stampin’ Up! knows how to soften the blow. When you join, you get to see the new catalog early, which gets you motivated to make room for all of the incredible new stuff! So, I am here to tell you that you are going to love it all!!

  1. I love the look of those delicious Cardomom Rolls. Would love the recipe,
    Here in Western Australia we are heading into the cooler months these look like the perfect antidote taking our minds off our situation.

    Stamping Up has helped as a great distraction for me and many others, but delicious food makes us all happy.
    My youngest daughter, a nurse, is coming home, we haven’t seen her for a couple of months. I have some chronic health conditions. I am excited to see her. No doubt you feel the same.
