...A Couple of June Club Cards

***Edited to add the third project***
I am so excited that I will be doing a little stamping today with my friend, Pam. I have been very busy since the summer vacation has started running my oldest son to sports practices and workouts, and it hasn't left me with much girl time. Luckily, we have Wednesdays off, so those will be our fun days with stamping, swimming, and playing. All I have to say is thank heavens for Wednesdays...LOL!

I will be holding my last Stampin' Up Club tomorrow, and I wanted to show you all a couple of the projects my ladies will be making on our last night together. I am a little sad on one hand, but I am so relieved on the other! I have some wonderful customers and I will truly miss them, but it has gotten to a point where I am putting more in than I am getting out. I think I am making the best decision possible at this time in my life. I will continue being an active demonstrator, but I will be spending the minimum each quarter for my own orders. I also have a couple of friends who will be putting orders in with mine, so that will help out.

Now on to the projects! I am focusing on "Clean and Simple Designs" for this month. Instead of giving a detailed description for each card, I will be listing the supplies below each picture. Here we go:
