Today is the last day of Sale-a-bration!

Today, March 31st, is the last day of Sale-a-bration time! Don't miss out on FREE items and there are many to chose from... stamp sets, digital software, designer series papers with matching sticker sheets, ribbon & buttons!
Here's a pretty card made using one of the FREE selections from the Sale-a-bration catalog!

This is made with the Punch Bunch stamp set. It's one of four exclusive Sale-a-bration stamp sets that you won't be able to purchase at any time.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Strolling Shopping Spree Success!

Wow, that's quite a title, yes? That's what my night was last Friday! I was a vendor at the Strolling Shopping Spree and it was a blast! Thanks to my friends who came out and showed their support for local (Michigan) crafters! I met some wonderful new people this evening and enjoyed sharing my love for all things Stampin' Up and crafting!
Super special thanks go to my dear friend, Pam, who not only helped me prepare for the show, she came with me and helped set up and sell! She is a gem!
My fellow demonstrator and dear friend, Chris loaned me her card stands - thank you!
I have Carla Brasher to thank for her tip sharing and also her own crafty items, which I cased a couple, too!
Last, but not least, special thanks to my husband who built me some tier shelving so that I could display all my beautiful projects on one table!

By popular request, here is my "booth/table" before we opened for business! Pretty nifty, don't you agree?

I'll be hosting a Shopping Spree in my home so you won't miss out on these great pieces for Easter and Mother's Day gifts!

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks for Inkin' of me,
(still shiverin' in Michigan)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This is a special day for my family! We enjoy rack of lamb, cabbage, mashed potatoes, sometimes Soda bread and always make up a St. Patrick's Cake that uses mashed potatoes instead of flour! My family wears green (my favorite color) and a sprig of orange (like my mother used to make me wear) as I am Irish protestant and my husband was raised an Irish Catholic!! We joke about the "wee-folk" and don't believe in luck as there's really no such thing, we call them blessings! We also wear a 3 leaf clover as this what St. Patrick's Day is all about = the holy trinity! We held our St. Patrick's Day special dinner tonight, as I have a special dream job that I'm going to on St. Patrick's Day, along with one of my daughters and we're not sure what time we may get home! We are very excited, but can't tell you about it until it's long over with, and that just drives me crazy!! I believe you will be happy for me and this is yet another great job that I love, along with my Stampin' Up! Here's my St. Patrick's Day goodies that I made up to hand out to some very "special" people I'm hoping to meet tomorrow at my dream job!! The "wee folk" is a peppermint patty disguise! Tricky little fellow, eh? The other is a pot of gold, but the one's I'll be giving out to my new friends tomorrow will have homemade gold coins! I hope you like them! I wish you a safe & Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Buttons are Sew Suite!

I'm back, although I'm still quite busy! Waiting on the call for my "dream job" again and preparing for a craft show next week! All that, with family and "sh-tuff" has kept me away from blogging and sharing.
Here's my rendition of a non-SU sketch and I think it's pretty nice! I'm using the Button, Button & Sew Suite stamp sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog, along with the In Stitches Jumbo wheel and Tasteful Trim XL Die.
Let me know if you like it!
