Illinois Tax Holiday

WOW!!!!

Thank You

Monogram Sweet
     I want to thank everyone that came to my New Catalog Open House on Thursday.  It was wonderful to spend one on one time with you talking and sometimes teaching something new. 
     This is one of the new cards I had on display.  It was so simple to make!  Tone on tone colors for the base of the card, then a simple silver embossed letter on a scallop circle.  Perfect for a quick note card or even thank you cards.  I think this would make a great gift for any occasion:  graduation, showers,  birthdays, weddings, etc.  Any color combination would work.  Would you like me to show you and your friends how simple it is learning to stamp?  Call me to schedule a workshop at 221-0978.  I have daytime and evening hours available.  Let me know what works for you.

Happy Stamping,

Almost Time!!

     I've been super busy making new projects for everyone to view at my New Catalog Open House!  I've got about a dozen so far in the last 3 days.  Today I'm concentrating on cleaning the house to make it ready, and then if time allows, I'll do some more creating! 
     The Summer has been more busy than usual with the two younger boys playing a lot of extra baseball and going to camps.  Baseball is now officially done for the summer, and they're at camp again, so I've had a little extra time this week. 
     There will be lots to see when you come to my home Thursday from 11 to 8.  The address is 523 Lawrence Ave., Galesburg, IL.   My display board with all the new projects will be up.  There will be plenty of tools to try, including the Big Shot Die Cut Machine (my personal favorite!) And if you're looking for some extra sheets of some favorite, but now retired colors, take a look in my stash.  I'm selling the majority of my retiring products at reduced prices.  I'm getting really excited and hope to see you all there!

Happy Stamping,

Make ....&....Take

     Make this simple, yet elegant card this Thursday when you visit me at my New Catalog Open House.  The card is embossed with the new Elegant Lines Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!.  I've also spritzed a little shimmer on the card to add a little pizazz!  What do you think?  Gorgeous, isn't it?  Join me for whatever time you can spare between 11:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. and see a selection of the wonderful new products being offered in the new catalog!
