First Jacksonville STARZ Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!!!   Welcome to the First Blog Hop of the Jacksonville STARZ.  You have been directed here from Lee Conrey's Stampingleeyours blog. 

I'd like to share with you my current Stampin' Up! Family Tree. 
How would you like to join my family?  Stampin' Up! makes it so easy and affordable.  Look what a $99 investment can do for you.....
  • $99 kit gives you $125 in Stampin' Up! product of your choice and all the Business Supplies you will need to set up your business
  • The current sign up promotion from Stampin' Up! is a full set of 10 Ink Pads in your choice of color family (excluding Neutrals).  This is a $49.95 retail value and you don't even have to pay for shipping or tax
Stampin' Up! also has a Hostess Special right now that you can take advantage of.

  • And if that isn't enough to entice you.....Lee has offered a "Signing Bonus".  She will provide you with either a Magic Bow Maker or a Set of 3 Card Stands (your choice) just for signing up with me
How amazing is all of that?????  The specials from Stampin' Up! make this an offer you can't pass up.  Join my Stampin' Up! family and let me show you how to do what I do...that is to run my own business, meet wonderful new friends, do what I love and have fun while doing it.

I know you also stopped by to see my card for today so here it is.
I used Tweet Leaves from the current Holiday Catalog.  My card base is Early Espresso and I used More Mustard and Cajun Craze for my mats.  The DSP is Orchard Harvest.  I colored my stamp using Stampin' Write Markers in various colors, huffed on the stamp to remoisten the ink and then stamped the image onto Very Vanilla.  The sentiment is from Just Believe.  I hope you like it!!!

I'm also giving away some blog candy....a brand new Fresh Vintage stamp set and a Holiday Frame embossing folder.  All you have to do is leave me a comment with your contact information and I will draw for the Winner on Sunday

In case you get lost on your journey following are all participants in today's First Blog Hop of the Jacksonville STARZ:
I certainly appreciate you taking time out of your day to stop in.  Before leaving, make sure to leave a comment to be entered into the blog candy drawing.  

Your next stop on the Blog Hop is Rose Ann Marr from Lehigh Acres, Florida.  Click HERE to go to her blog.  Have fun!
