Hello Card

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while.  After a couple weeks of not feeling very well I finally broke down and went to the doctor yesterday.  Two prescriptions later I am feeling a little better this morning.  Do you ever keep waiting to feel better and then forget how better feels – lol!  I think that is where I was at when it dawned on me yesterday that I was tired of feeling sick and tired and maybe there was something I could do about it.

Even though I have been pretty sluggish this week I was able to do a little creating.  Here is a card that I made for a Stampin’ Up! Group Meeting I’m attending on Saturday.


Not knowing how it would turn out I wasn’t too thrilled about this card at first.  When I finished it however it became one of  my new favorite cards!  I love how all the elements when put together make this a WOW card!  The colors used are the new Stampin’ Up! In-Colors – can’t get enough of them!  Also, the more I use the Hardwood stamp the more I like it.  The stamp really adds a lot of depth to this card.  The tag, which takes center stage, is a Framelit from the Chalk Talk Framlit Dies.  Stampin’ Up! is currently running a promotion for the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.  If you’re interested see all the details HERE.

I would be happy to share the Project PDF for this card with you.  Just sign up for my e-mail list.  If you are already on my list send me a quick email requesting the “Hello” card PDF.  My email is

Queen Bee Girls Night Out and FREE Shipping!

Last night I had the opportunity to participate in the Queen Bee Girls Night Out event at the Zona Rosa Town Center in my community.  Such a fun evening full of music, food and shopping!  Here is a photo of me with my table.  I apologize for the quality of the photo but the lighting was not the best.  The table appears to be a hot mess but up close and personal I think it was presentable – lol!


Guests who stopped by the table were able to make this cute little tag.  We used a stamp from the Work of Art stamp set creating an ombre effect by using the stamping off technique (a fancy term for stamping off on scratch paper before stamping onto project – lol!).  I absolutely love the Work of Art stamp set and use it a lot!


What Girls Night Out is complete without prizes?!  Each vendor supplied a gift to be raffled off.  There are so many beautiful products in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog I just couldn’t decide so my donation to the event was the catalog along with a gift certificate.  I’m so excited to see what the winner chooses!


As a show special I am offering FREE shipping for all orders placed by Monday, August 4, 2014 at 10 AM.  To receive FREE shipping you must place your order with me directly.  For FREE shipping email your order to with your contact information.    If you have any questions or need help with your order please do not hesitate to email me with your contact information.  My email is
