Tomorrow’s a Big Day!

Yes, tomorrow’s a big day for several reasons. Yesterday was a big day because it was National Dog Day. For those of you who think I didn’t celebrate – think again. Ann broke me out of the doggy spa and gave me LOTS of hugs and kisses.

But tomorrow….

Unique Shape Thank You Card

Well, before I show you the card, Ann & I just have to thank you for all the nice thoughts and prayers you’ve shared while my favorite huMAN was in the hospital. He escaped yesterday and I was so glad to see him!

Ann took me over to “the big house” one night. I guarded the car for about 15 minutes while she ran some costume changes in for him. Probably a toothbrush too for all I know.

When she came back she let me smell his pants. She said my face looked shocked and I’m not surprised. I thought she got rid of him and his pants were all that was left!

You would be shocked too!

So here’s our thank you card for some special someones. We used the Big Shot and the Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die to get its unique shape.

24/7 Guest Stamper, Marci Long

Marci is our last guest stamper this week from our 24/7 Stampers. Marci lives in Allen, Texas and is a retired school teacher. She’s been a valued member of our 24/7 Stampers Demonstrator Community for a little over 2 years.

If you want something stamped right, Marci is your girl. In fact, I think she probably participated in the swap just to disguise the fact that she’s sending me an early birthday card. (I’m sure that’s why she put SURPRISE on the front!)

24/7 Guest Stamper Karen Thomas

Have you ever participated in a swap? Last month, about a dozen of our Virtual Demonstrator Community, the 24/7 Stampers, attended the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City. Perhaps you saw their picture in this post.

Everyone who attended got the Amazing Birthday stamp set for free in their choice of wood mount or clear mount. So Ann & I sponsored a swap so all the 24/7 Stampers could share their ideas.

Our first card to share is from Karen Thomas from Pennsylvania. Karen’s been a member of our 24/7 Stampers Virtual Community for two years.

Get Your Left Handed Card Ready!

My Facebook friend, Sharon, mentioned on my Facebook page that she would like to know unique holidays in advance so she could prepare for them.

So since you mentioned it, Sharon, I barked to Ann that she should come up with something early for you. And I hope that you all will find this inspiration helpful.

Wednesday is International Left-Handers Day. And what left handed friend wouldn’t want to find THIS in their mailbox!

And I’m not asking either!
