IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE!

Finally, winter has come… no more 60 degree weather…. SNOW has arrived!  I should have more faith – it almost always snows in time or on the day of my Downline Dinner (as my next door neighbor's mail box can attest to!)  We had great fun on Friday night with our Customer Appreciation Night – more on that later.  Here are some fun pictures, my puppy (okay, maybe 78 pounds is not a puppy!) loves to (try) catch snowballs – and this snow is great for them.  Our yard is beautiful – no more gloomy days.  How about the last leaves of the Burning Bush with snow!  OH, God is so good!  Yes, go a bit further down and I even have a card for you… never guess what it is of!

dsc00129He is so great!  He loves snow just like his mama!

dsc00131Isn't it beautiful!  Just in time for my Team Dinner… Yes, dinner is still on!

dsc00132I didn't think my Burning Bush would ever get red, now its last leaves look great against the pure white snow!

Oh, yes, a card!  A what? what? kind of card?  You guessed -it was so hard!

dsc00130Isn't it great!

We made this card months ago.  I think I even cased it… yes, from Kate?  Made a few changes but you can never have snow too early!  If you need any directions just email me.

Have a wonderful snowy Sunday!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold Glimmer Paper

Inks: StazOn Black, Versamark

Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Layering Oval Framelits, Gold Metallic Thread

Steps/Instructions

Stamp verse first and cut out with Oval Framelit.  Stamp across bottom.  These will help you to position the other items on the card front.

Heat emboss with GOLD embossing powder the grunge background, the trees, ornaments and inside of card.  See about for lay out of trees and ornaments, these you will have to fussy cut out.  The inside is all heat embossed directly on the card stock.  See the picture on top right on how to add the Gold Metallic Thread, it is wrapped around your fingers about 6 times then ends are attached to dimensional and you cut off the ends if they are sticking out.

Remember time is running out…. check out the sale here.

Just A Note!

Happy Monday!  

WHERE IS THE SNOW!!!  Not wanting much – will that is not true – I am waiting on God for a lot, but really – high 60's!  It is November – in Wisconsin – not Texas!  Even the hunters want a bit of snow for tracking!

Okay – enough of my desire for SNOW, SNOW, SNOW!!  Today was our Team meetings!  They are fun.  So many different ideas, so many different ways to run your own business.  We have a morning and evening one – which is not always easy but has proven great for our team!  I even cook for them!  Okay – perhaps Costco cooks for them – but I turn the oven on!

Big thanks to Julie who was willing to handle the morning class while I was at court.  I could not do Stampin'UP! without her, Marie, all my team member and of course YOU my great customers.

Remember the sale we have going on right now.  Click here to read all about it.  I have been making gifts for those that order.

Center Stage!

Tonight was Stampin'UP! Center Stage for Silver Elite and above.  It was awesome.  Some of the highlights:

At check in we recieved a bag with new stamp set, badge, pens, notebook with 6 month planning calendar, and award ribbons!  I was totally shocked.  I had not expected anything as awards and got sales, recruiting, and leadership!  I have awesome customers, a great team supporting me, and a wonderful downline growing with me.  I wish they could have been there to share the surprise and joy!  Next we moved past boards with sample ideas (Yes, Diane this picture was just for you – I know you love the candy!) to beautifully set tables.  And still more goodies – then… THE NEW CATALOGS – yup! I have in my hand the new spring catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalog!  There was still more – A special bag just "because we love to spoil you" how awesome is that.  Pictures are all below.  Hope some of you will be there with me next year to share the fun!

Stampin’UP! is coming to Madison!

Twice a year Stampin'UP does a convention and this time it is in Australia!   When Stampin'UP! does a convention out of the country they do a smaller version in a few cities in the US.  Well, Madison is one of them.  Stampin'UP! will have people from headquarters here Friday night to teach leadership.  Saturday there will be an all day event with teaching, swaps, PRIZE PATROL (think new toys!), and time to get our hand on new product.  Some of my team will be going, it will be fun to just have a good time together.  Here is my invitation for Friday night. I am really excited!

dsc09692Only bad part is my dog is sick so someone will be here with him while I am gone… my poor baby.  But he is on the way to getting better.  I just need to learn how to get the eye drops in his eyes and not on his head!

Here is one of the cards I am doing for the swaps – this is when you make a certain number of cards – say 20 – all the same and 20 other people make 20 cards, then you get one of each of theirs, so you come home with 20 different cards!  Clear as mud, no, well it is great fun to see everyone's cards and how they use set you have never thought to use.

dsc09718

Yes, I still love my college!  I never seem to know when to stop!

Have a great Friday and look for an post late Friday night when I get home.

I Love Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving may be my favorite Holiday of the year.  It is just so American.  We all have so much to be thankful for, no matter the battles we are pushed into or the losses we have endured.  

I am so thankful that I got to see Wendy's 'Red' tree this year.  I miss her so much at times like this.  We often waited for this tree to turn, checking it each day.  This was one of the first "birthday" presents I gave her.  She had lost all the Oak trees in the back yard to Oak Wilt?, so Wendy had planted some trees…. okay, for years we laughed at this.  They were sticks about 8 to 10 inches high about an inch or less around. (no, none of them made it due to mowing accidents!)  Since she was such a garden/yard person, I decided that my first birthday present to her would be trees…. with a December birthday I would always get her something for the yard or gardens in the summer.  So I got her "real" trees…. you know the kind that a tractor comes in and digs a hole so the tree and root can go in!  Here is a picture of her "red" tree… 

dsc09710

Is this not the greatest tree.  You can't see how red, red it is.  

dsc09708The Yellow Tree (came with the Red tree -two is better than one!)

I am hoping for one more fall in our home, but if not, I am so very thankful that I was able to have the season to see the trees, it has helped to heal.  

Now for a great card…. that is what the fun is about!  Did you see the awsome sale in yeaterday post… if not, go check it out!  Since I was talking about Wendy's birthday gift I thought this card would be good to share.  I love the new Embossing folder – reminds me of all Wendy's knitting.  Guess this is a Wendy day… So grateful for our years together.  Check out how to make this card below.  If you need anything to make it you can shop at my online store by hitting the shop button at the top.  Remember the Code to use to get a special gift from me is:  MWCZE97F.dsc09668

 

Sets: Vintage Leaves, Thoughtful Banners

Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Old Olive, Copper Foil, Glossy (we have this for sale)

Inks: Old Olive, Peekaboo Peach, Pumpkin Pie, Versamark

Other: Leaflet Framelits, Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder, Woodlands Embossing folder, daubers, Burlap, Ribbon Trio Pack

 

Steps/Instructions

Heat Emboss the tree stamp using Copper Embossing powder on the Glossy card stock.  NOTE: It does matter how you position the tree on the paper for cutting it out with the framelit.  Look at the framelit BEFORE you heat emboss the tree

Using daubers to color in the tree with Peekaboo Peach ink first around the middle of the tree, use Pumpkin Pie ink to darken the top and Old Olive ink for the green bottom.  Cut out tree with Leaflet Framelits.

Adhere Cable Knit background to Woodland background.  Wrap ribbon around Very Vanilla card stock adhere in the back with double sided tape.  Adhere this to the card base with glue.  Add strip of Copper foil using glue.

Tie two pieces of burlap in a bow and adhere to tree with glue dot, adhere tree to card with dimensionals.  Stamp the banner with Pumpkin Pie ink and then stamp saying inside with Old Olive ink fussy cut out and adhere with dimensionals to card.

Enjoy your wonderful fall days as SNOW is coming!
