It has been a while.....

Hello...

It has been a while... and I am sorry...... my life has recently changed forever.....
On February 17th, my best friend, partner.... my mom.... passed away... she had been fighting lung cancer for about 10 months. On the 16th, while at the hospital to get fluid drained from her lungs, she was cleared of cancer..... On the 17th, her heart just gave out..... It has been over a month, my head still hurts, my heart is still braking and i am still lost and confused without her constant presence....

I am now back - hugs to all my friends....

Here is a card to complete this post...... I will be posting again shortly...... thank you for your support.....

Top Note Die

Hello! Here is a quick share with the Top Note Die - which is exclusive from Stampin Up! and one of my favorites! I created 4 "identical" card fronts with the Vintage Vogue set and onto the Top Note die in So Saffron and Elegant Eggplant ink, adding a touch of Basic Grey Satin Ribbon; found in the New Mini Catalogue. When I went to place these onto the cards, I decided to flip the orientation... And I love both! ;) TTYL -XOX-

A quick hello!

Hello!
Just wanted to share a couple of cards I have made... they are pretty much the same - just different sizes & ways the card opens :)
I used a Kraft backgroud and Chocolate chip. The stamp is one of my favorites... Inspired By Nature (#111656 ). I used En Francais (#109521) in the backgroup. To stamp the image i used the white craft ink and my markers.


Wishing you all a great day!! TTFN -XOX-

Make A Difference! Disaster relief for the people of Haiti!

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I can help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this earthquake by purchasing, and more importantly selling, the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set. Help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12. From now until February 28, 2010, Stampin’ Up!® will set aside $2 from the sale of every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set and donate it to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well- established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need. Product Name Item # Price I {Heart} Hearts - clear-mount (block D recommended) 118571 $24.95 I {Heart} Hearts - wood-mount 117010 $35.95 Thanks! -XOX-

Exciting New Products!!!

Hello! & Happy New Year! Wishing all of you the very best! I am so excited to share with you the following new products - a new mini catalogue and Sale-A-Bration! You will recieve a free Sale-a-bration stamp set from Stampin' Up! with every $65 you spend :) And to top it all off, Starting with stamps in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalogue and 2010 Sale-A-Bration brochure, Stampin' Up! now offers stamps in both traditional wood-mount, and the new clear-mount options. The New unmounted stamps are not acrylic but are made of the same red rubber and therefore are of the same quality! Clear-Mount Rubber Stamp Features Nine different sizes of clear blocks available individually or as a discounted bundle. Blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel. Stamps and blocks are durable and easy to clean with your Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist. Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not. Tight die-cutting for easy image positioning. Large clear blocks can be used to create collages or spell words with alphabet sets. Stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy. The unmounted stamps are of the same quality as they are not acrylic but the same red rubber with the same cushion. Fantastic! Simply click on the images below to view the catalogues :)
