I entered this challenge because the theme is Sympathy and Caring and I have been meaning to make a card for my Grandmother because last week my Grandpa passed away. He had been sick and it was expected but it still leaves a hole in us, doesn’t it?
My Grandmother is not big on attention or sympathy for herself so my card is more just a, I love you and I’m here for you all the time type card. I love her so much and I really miss my Grandpa already. I don’t share a lot of personal stuff so excuse me this time around.
I hope you get inspiration from my card. It’s using one of my favorite colors that is retiring this year and I’m kinda sad about it, Mint Macaron.
Here is a link to the retiring list. It is *While Supplies Last* so don’t wait too long! The new Catalog comes out on June 1st.
I’m excited that it’s time once again for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! It runs the first Friday of the month and the projects that you see are from Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all around the globe using a common theme.
This month our theme is: OUR FAVORITE BUNDLE!
I had such a hard time choosing this time around because I have a few favorites right now. But the one that is most fun to use currently is the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle. This dragonfly set makes the most beautiful cards and there are so many different ways you can stamp the dragonfly or cut the dies. Here are a few examples of cards I’ve made using this set:
Tomorrow I am attending OnStage Local here in San Diego and demonstrators from all over are getting sneak peeks of the new Annual Catalog that comes out in June. I’m so excited to see the new bundles that will be available. They’ve already given us some peeks at new In-Colors 2017-2019. Hint: They are in the OnStage letters! SShhhh…
So pretty! And one suite called Eastern Palace. Amazing things done with that bundle already!

Welcome to another month of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! This month we’ve got a sketch challenge! Here’s the sketch:
Here’s what I made:
It’s my dad’s birthday today, so I had made this card for him using the sketch. I really like the stamp set, Guy Greetings because it sums up my dad perfectly. He was always working on a car or fixing things around the house. Yes, he really did teach me, righty-tighty, lefty-loosey! And I’ve since taught my kids! The argyle print in the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack is the perfect addition to a masculine card, in my opinion. Love you DAD!
What can you create using this sketch? Leave a comment, along with a link to your blog and I’ll come check it out!

Here’s a list of everyone participating in today’s blog hop in case you get lost.
Hi BFF’s!!! I’m so happy to get back into a schedule after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year’s. I pray that all of you and your families had a safe and happy New Year and that you all got the love you wanted for Christmas 🙂
So Phew! We’re back and do we have some exciting news for you! Stampin’ Up! 2017 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration is available to look at and buy from! Squeal! And we hope you will love it as much as we do. There’s beautiful Valentine’s Day stuff and surly Manly stuff. Dragonflies, Hot Air Balloons and Succulents! Ice cream, Circus and Heros! Such a variety! The blog hop today is showcasing some of the items from the new catalog, so here goes!
My absolute favorite is the balloon pop up dies. I just used them to make invitations for a birthday party! They were so fun and and easy way to add something spectacular.
Here is the video straight from Stampin’ Up! showing you exactly how to use the dies.
There are so many fabulous stamps, designer series paper and adorable little embellishments, that you will not have a problem finding $50 worth of stuff to buy. And for every $50 you spend in product, you receive something free from the Sale-A-Bration brochure! You can not buy the product from the SAB, you’ve got to earn it! So come check out the catalog and let me know what’s on your wish list! If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, then I’d love to send you a catalog. Just contact me and let me know!
And this card is made from a stamp set called Window Shopping, but the stamp set is not the best part! The best part is the Window Box Thinlet Die that you can buy to go with it! I’ll add the video below.
We went to a meeting with our team and got some adorable cards using their pre-orders also.
How to earn free stamps:
Shop!!! Buy online or buy in person: For every $50 you spend on product out of ANY catalog or online in the clearance, you will receive a FREE Sale-A-Bration item of your choice from the brochure.
