Christmas in July

Is it too early to start Christmas cards? Not for some!

I’ll always remember Ann sharing about our friend Cynthia who made a few cards every month so that she’d have a lot of them by Thanksgiving.

But most of you humans aren’t like that.

We’ll be starting our Christmas Card Stamp a Stacks soon. And right after that,

One Hot Tuesday

It’s going to be one hot Tuesday here!  There’s the Weekly Deal and then there’s the weather. Glad to have Ann back.  She brought back lots of hugs and kisses from so many Stampin’ Up!

Those of you who have been shopping with us are invited to a couple special online events so we can share them with you.  The Master Stampers and the Pup Club...

Oh Thank You, My Friend!

Wanted to share this cool card she got in a swap with other Founder’s Circle Achievers from last year. Why? Because she and our stampin’ friend Bob don’t have this stamp set yet.

A List of Must Haves on Special

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this list of things on the enhanced Stampin’ Up! specials that they call the Weekly Deal.

I’ve got a card in my head right now that we could make with that set of Stars Framelits that are available while supplies last for 25% off.

And here’s a card we did with the Little Numbers Thinlets that is easy to recreate. In fact, just scroll down below the specials and I’ll share the video with you.

Is it Time for a Sympathy Card Idea?

Yes, it’s time for a sympathy card idea. We’re going to miss our friend LaVerne. Ann and my favorite huMAN celebrated with her at her 100th birthday party last year.

Can you imagine that? 100! They even put a huge article and picture in the paper for that. It wasn’t just for her reaching 100 years, but it was to celebrate a life well lived.

LaVerne just made everyone feel special.

And we’re fairly certain that ..

We’ve got a long distance family member who could use a bright and cheery get well card after a few days laid up in the hospital.

Do you think this one will do the trick?
