Thank you Cheryl! Thank you Martha!

I want to Thank Cheryl for lending me the Lovely Letters set to make this monogram thank you card. I made a package of 8 for a friend of mine recovering from gall bladder surgery. ( Love ya Judy! ) Colors used are Baja Breeze and Pacific Point. The ribbon and monogram got me started, but Martha suggested the 2 blue In Color combo! They are exceptional! Thanks to all who contributed. (((hugs))))
Martha came up with this acetate card using this SU Christmas tree set. She did a similar card at Archivers. The black word image in the shape of a tree is stamped with StazOn onto the acetate. Then on the white cardstock behind she sponged the green color to match the shape of the tree and the words. Then, she enhanced the overall look by adding red jewels onto the front of the tree, a bit of bling! The ribbon is holding the acetate onto the cardfront. I have one of these for you to study on club night!

A sample Martha got from an event with her upline.
A plus that I finished while at Martha's are the birthday calendars I gave my family 3 years ago. I gave them for Christmas - incomplete! They even wrote in birthdays, but I had to have them back to finish, VIOLA' it's is finished!! 3 years! Yes, that is correct. I am a true procrastinator! Thank you Martha for prompting me to finish. Ok, she said I couldn't do anything else until they were done!! That's truly motivational!!! (((HUGS)))))
Love ya Martha, I had a GREAT TIME!! I learn LOTS from you.

Look what great ideas I brought home!!

I spent Friday and Saturday at a hunting widow's home in Prior Lake, my stampin' friend Martha's! Look at these great ideas I brought home to Red Wing!! Martha is a driven stamper!
This card came from her upline, it's is so comical, on the inside is the image of the rest of the animal~!

This example has paper on the lower 2 sections and the top is stamped! It is a smaller than the A2 size we generally make, but can be copied for an A2 size.

There is glitter bling glued onto the flower, look close!

Martha made this at Archivers earlier that day I arrived. It's using acetate as the card with the cardstock stapled onto the back flap, StazOn used to stamp the images onto the acetate. It's so cute and this angle shows off the images on the front! This was "the bomb" card. VERY WOW!

BIG SHOT! I ordered ONE!

Oh, it was always in the back of my mind. I love the top note shape, I can't wait to make textured backgrounds. I finally ordered the BIG SHOT! Yikes! It will be so much fun and make preparing for workshops so easy! How fun, I can't wait to get it. My Christmas gift to myself!!

Did you know that if you need to order Stampin' Up! you can go to the website, and if you put my name down as demonstrator you get a discount? Very cool! I just went to check out how that works, it makes it so easy! Be sure to play around and check out online ordering. I'll have to think of some fun incentive for anyone who orders online and puts my name down as as their demonstrator.
It might be some fun die cuts from the new BIG SHOT.

I have been enjoying this unseasonably mild weather. It feels so good outside! I took Riley out for a super long walk this evening, it did us both good! Get out an enjoy it!

Oh club girls, your order is in and waiting for pick up!
