Still hoping for spring!

It's been raining here in Michigan for over a week now. I love rain and thunder storms, but not for 10 days straight and with dogs who LOVE water! It's all worth it though! Here's a beauty of a card inspired by another demonstrator (if it's you, let me know and I'll give you credit) although I changed it some to make it my own.
With all these April showers, there better be some GREAT FLOWERS this May! : )
Thanks for Inkin' of me!

Wishing Spring Would Stay!

Here are two more beautiful card purses made from the new Paisley Petal DSP and Sweet & Sour DSP for you review! My downline made these and used the Fun Flower Die Cut from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Ordering from the Occasions Mini ends April 30th. Don't miss out on any items in this wonderful catalog!
Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for Inkin' of me,

Thinking of my mom!

I love making my mom cards and gifts as she knows how much work and love is put into handmade items. She was my craft teacher from a young age. Whether it was sewing or party favors, she made everything by hand! She also sends cards with handwritten messages to special people on a regular basis! In this world of technology, she warms the heart that technology cannot. I got this pattern from Amy Celona and here's my creation for my mother and although I used retired DSP, she'll be happy with my results! Hope you like it!I need to make some cards to put inside now...

I can show you how to make one of these beautiful stationery holders, too! Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for Inkin' of me today,
(it's starting to look like spring in Michigan with these April showers and birds singing!)

Each bag will contain a variety of discontinued products that could include a combination of any of the following: ribbons, Accents & Elements, chipboard, Designer Series Papers, and Simply Sent kit components. Grab bags will not contain stamp sets or tools.

Please keep these tips in mind:

  • Grab bag orders can only be placed on-line. Click for my on-line Stampin' Up! store.
  • There is no minimum purchase required to participate in the grab bag special offer.
  • There is no limit to the number of grab bags a customer may purchase; however, grab bag items are only available while supplies last.
