It's a STAMPbaby! A Surprise Blog Hop for Shery!

We at STAMPlorations LOVE surprises and we also LOVE a good celebration. And boy (or in this case girl) is there something to celebrate around here!!

Today, our fearless leader, Shery, became a brand new mommy!! She delivered a healthy, happy, precious baby girl! (Excuse the multitude of exclamation points but we feel they're warranted.)

As anyone who has ever come into contact with Shery knows, her kindness, generosity, and amazing spirit are unparalleled and we wanted to do something extra special to celebrate her big news.



So we're having a surprise hop-a-long that Shery will see when she gets out of the hospital and we are hoping you'll celebrate with us. Here are the cards we created:

ASMAH  and MARIA were unable to make cards when we threw this together but wanted Shery to know they are wishing the very best for the new little STAMPfamily!! 


We've all made baby-themed cards and will be sending them to Shery. Would you consider doing the same? If so, link up your creations below and we promise to come leave you lots of comments!
You can link up through September 14. Feel free to use the blog hop graphic in your post.

P.S. - If you'd like to mail Shery your card (totally optional) you can send it to:
The Russ Family
PO Box 883
Strathmore, CA 93267

  34. You ladies are simply the best. Ya'll already know how I bawled my eyes out when I saw this wonderful surprise while baby Kathryn Corazon and I were still in the hospital. No way I can describe how you all made me feel. I just know that I'm so blessed because you're not just the girls in our little design team -- I consider you my online family and Kathryn is so fortunate to have lots of surrogate aunties! I love you guys :o)
