Today is the day....

for the 24 hour big shot sale!  If you need a Big Shot is the time to buy it.
This whole extravaganza is so fun.  LOVE being able to shop from home for things I want instead of fighting the crowds in the stores!  AND, being a demo I get an additional discount when my order in placed.

The sign-up to be a demo is awesome right now.  Along with all the wonderful items included in the starter kit, which is TOTALLY customizable, you also get an entire family of ink pads!  That's right, 10 new-style ink pads in the family of your choice, TOTALLY FREE!  Amazing!

Contact me before December 16th if you want to take advantage of that special.

Also exciting is the news that MDS downloads can now be included with workshop orders!  That is huge for helping hostesses meet the workshop total needed to get hostess bennies!

Well, off to have lunch with my daughter, take a walk around Clement Lake and get groceries for our turkey day feast!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!

November South SAS card

Here is the card that I did for our November South Stamp-a-Stack last week.

and the inside:

Paper - Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse and Whisper White
Ink - Midnight Muse and Whisper White
Stamps - Snowflake Soiree, Greetings of the Season and Snow Swirled

The whole thing was then spritzed with my home-made shimmer mist made with our Champagne Mist shimmer paint and 70% alcohol in a fine mist bottle.

The ribbon is Midnight muse and a non-SU white lace that I had in my cupboard.

Just finishing up packing up supplies for tomorrow's West Stamp Camp.  Will be posting some of those cards in the coming days.

Thanks for stopping by!

More class cards

Before I post Tami's cards from our November class I just have to mention that the SAB brochure and the Spring mini were posted for demonstrators only on the SU website yesterday.  Let me just say that I am in SOOOOOO much trouble!  Especially with the Spring Mini.  My gosh, SO many cool new things.  I need to win the lottery!  Now, non demonstrators will not be able to see this until January, but those of us who are demos will get to pre-order items from these publications on December 1, I believe!  Just ANOTHER great reason to sign up between now and December 16th.  Another great reason is that if you do, you get AN ENTIRE family of ink pads along with ALL the other stuff that is included in the starter kit.  This is just an amazing deal for $99.00!!!!!!  Contact me if you want to join my team.  We have SOOOO much fun!

Now....on to Tami's cards. 

Are they not BEAUTIFUL!!  Since my photo-taking ability is sadly lacking, you really can't see all the wonderful shimmer and shine on all our Christmas cards!

Hope you have a great day!

Bye for now,

November Card Class

We had a great time in our classes Friday and Saturday.  We celebrated Pam's birthday on Saturday with an absolutely sinfully delicious chocolate cake made by Richard!  mmmmm  Someone should have a birthday every month!!!!!

My cards this month were not SU stamps.  I fell in love with a Snowman set at the recent Expo that was here in town and just had to use it. (anyone who knows me well, knows I'm a snowman collector).  I CASE'd a card from the company's website and just changed it up a bit.  Isn't this guy just adorable! All paper and ink are Stampin Up!  Flower Soft was used on the scarf and hat band.

This one used some of our silver glimmer paper behind the star cut-outs that were done with an "anywhere" punch.
The deer and the houses were also a die.  The snowbanks were glittered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  It all sparkled so nicely!

I'll post Tami's projects hopefully tomorrow!

Bye for now,

Back at last

Sorry about the absence, but last week was pretty hectic around here.  I was trying to get some things ready for our bazaar at the church, as well as get ready for a "private party" at Michelle's.  Now that they are done I feel like I can breathe again and am back to getting ready for our usual card class here next weekend.

I promised more photos of the gals with their turkeys.  Not everyone participated in the photo op (grin), but here are the ladies that did!

First off is my stampin' up! "mom", Connie.

Then Zoe,


And last, but FAR from least:

We had such fun making the birds.  I had five kits left over and made them up to sell at the bazaar.
I sold 3 of the 5 and the other two will go to my kids. 

I also made up some Winter Spice Mochaccino Mix in decorated jars (the snowflake decoration came off and was an ornament you could hang on the tree).  I've never done anything like that before for the bazaar and probably never will again!  I sold exactly NONE!  Oh well, they will make nice gifts for neighbors, etc.  Was disappointing as I spent way more time on them than I should have!!!!  Live and learn!

Bye for now
