Have to tell you - one of my friends who is also a customer, well her daughter stamps and had a catty (catalog) party at her work. One of the daughter's friends placed an order for her friend. You will NEVER guess - the friend of a friend of the daughter - lives just down the street from me! We finally met last night! It's funny how life works, isn't it? You just never know where you will find NEW friends...
Wasn't it GREAT ordering new stamps AND saving money? 15% off! Thank you Stampin'Up! Here's the card we made last night. Each card was different as I used the last half of my Festival of Print Designer Series Paper Stack. Thanks to my upline who sent me a NEW package for my promotion last month (that post here), so I can make more! Thanks again Sandi!
|Easy Christmas Card using Sassy Salutations|
|Easy Christmas Card using Seasonal Sayings|
And did you know - on that paper, the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack, did you notice both sides? One is seasonal - Christmas-y - reds and greens and such. The other side is NON-seasonal - blues and reds and browns - so the DSP stack can be used year round - NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS! Since I already have the paper cut, I think I may make some birthday and thinking of you cards for my desk drawer at work.
AND did you also notice how perfectly the "Merry Christmas" from the Sassy Salutations stamp set fit on the paper? YUP! I LOVE my Apothecary Accents Framelits! Makes it so easy to stamp on the paper than then it just lines right up when I run it through my Big Shot. And the Seasonal Sayings stamp set was the one I received FOR FREE from Stampin'Up! while at the Chattanooga Regionals - Thanks again Stampin'Up!

Well, I just got up and realized that it is sputtering SNOW!!!! Very light ground cover and really cold, but snow just makes me smile. Now that is... in a few months after shoveling and driving in it, maybe not so much... but NOW it is really nice. Makes it nice and easy to stay inside and CRAFT instead of shivering in the cold outside! (smile)
