Sorry for the few days off... I can't really account for my time lately as it seems like I've been spinning in circles with almost nothing to show for it. Ever have days or weeks like that. I'm usually pretty focused and organized but lately... yikes!
I figured one of the best ways to get back on track was to blog again. This is a weird time of the Stampin'Up! year... lots of favorite things are going away with the retired list and some new favorites are just around the corner, but I can't quite get my hands on them yet - haha! I've been cleaning and sorting my craft room and will be having a big Rubber and Paper sale this week. Contact me for details of you are close to Bozeman at all. It will be worth a stop by my house and see what goodies you have always wanted that I'm parting with!
For today, I have a simple sympathy card. This is a special stamp set (Gift of Love #141796) in that it is a hostess stamp set which means it can only be purchased with hostess dollars, which means an order totaling at least $150. I only purchase hostess sets if I really like them! This is a fun three-step set. You stamp the outline, then the flowers, then the leaves; all with different colors. Here's my card:
Another great thing about this simple flower design is that it could be used for any color scheme and for any occasion; I just happened to need a sympathy card.
Curious about what is retiring? Click on the "shop now" link to the right and in the store, you'll see a "Retiring Products" link you can click on. It is updated throughout the day so stays current on what is still available. Products are available while supplies last until May 31st!
Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting
I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!
