Celebrating Zebra

After suffering through Tropical Storm Fay, being off work Thursday & Friday and spending that time at home with no electricity I was very thankful to see the sun on Saturday morning. I picked up my sister, went out for dinner at the Olive Garden and then spent the evening cropping and stamping at my LSS. A good friend of mine was there also and kindly told me that I needed to update my blog because it had been too long since I posted. (RA you were right) I felt it only fitting that I post the Celebrating Zebra in honor of my escape from gloomy, rain-filled, no electricity boredom. The stamps used on this gate-fold card are from Great Impressions. Enjoy!

Thank You Card

My son graduated from high school this year and I thought I would share with you the thank you card I made for him to use. This card uses a new find of mine the Just Rite monogram stamper that you can find here. I purchased an extra small alphabet so I could create more than just the monogram. On this particular card I added his first name along with the initial. I can see so many uses for this monogram stamper and just had to have it (as usual). I will share more of my creations using this product as I design them. Thanks for stopping by!

Latest Swap Card

I wanted to share with you a card I made this past week for a swap that was done at my upline's team meeting. We swap at every meeting and I really look forward to it because I get so many beautiful cards from my fellow demonstrators that can be used for a source of inspiration. Sometimes they just become the source of an outright CASE. (ssh!! don't tell anyone)

This card uses all Stampin' Up! product except for the flower center which is a clear rhinestone. Details are listed below.

Stamps: Wonderful You, One of a Kind, Stitched
Cardstock: Whisper White, Back Black, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss
Ink: Craft White
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch

New Stampin' Up! Fall/Winter Catalog

Hello Everyone!

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted. I can only say that life, in general, has taken up most of my time and another part has been spent stressing over my dad who lives in Pittsburgh and has been in bad health for a long time and has recently had a major health shakeup. It is so very difficult when you live 1,000 miles away from an elderly parent.

Now back to the reason I am writing this post. The new Stampin' Up! catalog for Fall/Winter has come out and orders can be placed starting today. This catalog is fabulous!!! You can view the catalog by clicking on the picture at right. All the NEW stamp sets are die cut and the new papers are beautiful. Stampin' Up! is even having a 15% off sale on selected new stamp sets. The sales flyer can be seen at this link (Sale Stamps). This sale is running from August 11 thru September 30, 2008. If you would like to place an order please contact me thru my demonstrator website.

There are great things coming from Stampin' Up! so stay tuned to my blog for the latest updates.

See you soon.
