Pet Sympathy Card

No one likes to lose their pet. And none of the rest of us want to make those cards.

And I CERTAINLY hope Ann doesn’t have to get one any time soon either!

But since the Square Collection Framelits are on sale for 25% off this week, I thought that this would be a grrrrreat card to share with you. and I’ll show you a few steps to help you do what I told Ann to do.

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.

Embedded Paper Video

Before we get to our Embedded Paper Video, I promised that I on Sundays I would peruse the special card days coming up so you could send cards to your friends for a real special touch.

I never mentioned that today was Mail Order Catalog Day, but it sure does make it a good time to remind you to be on the lookout for our Stampin’ Up! Holiday Seasonal Catalog in your mailbox this week. (I haven’t gotten the one Ann mails me yet.)

I’m not going into Wednesday being World Mosquito Day. GRRR! But here are a few that could warrant the appropriate card:

Hug Your Humans Today

Here is how my Thursday started. Ann got up early for some training. (She likes to make sure I’m up on the latest.)

The UPS man came. We tore open the box which is filled with cool stuff from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Seasonal Catalog. Doesn’t all that stuff look great? I don’t know where to start!

Look for our Sweet Treat Product Shares offering from the Holiday Seasonal Catalog soon.

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!)
