Three pockets! The top one is to hold some stamps. (yes those are old Christmas stamps!) The middle pocket holds note cards and the bottoms pocket holds the envelopes.Four notes cards, four matching envelopes, stamps and a pretty pocket holder. Great gift, or what?
The colors I used were Eggplant, Certainly Celery and Rose Red. The colors look so pretty together. I think this was a CC on SCS a few weeks ago.
Enjoy! If you haven't entered to win the $10 SU! Gift Certificate, leave your comment today on that post!

On this card, we used Versmark to stamp off the Old Olive Pastels. And of course, Embrace Life stamp set was used. Love that set!This is a bookmark we made. Ginger Blossom paper was used for the sleeve and Cameo Coral was used for the inside base as well as the Pastels for the flower. I used my Old Olive marker to ink the stamp and for Embrace Life at the bottom. Wouldn't this be a great gift for someone!

This photo was adjusted through my photo editor. I didn't even think that the foil would effect the pictures but it did a bit.

Some of us, including me, aren't up on the blog lingo. Makes you feel old huh? A friend asked me what does RAK mean? I didn't know myself when I first saw it so my friend Courtney filled me in. It means Random Act of Kindness. Cute, huh?
Have a great day!

Have a great day!
I used Background Basics and Pun Fun. The card stock is Kraft, Blue Bayou, and Rust. I added a few gold brads and some Twill Tape. The cup is embossed with Clear EP using Versamark Ink. The card is simple but I love it. Plus anyone that knows me understands how I feel about coffee!!
Have a great Monday. And don't forget to leave your comment for the 5000 Hit Giveaway today!

Who would have thought to use Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery and Orchard Opluent together? I certainly would not. But it looks great. The stamp set I used is Merci, one of the Sale-A-Bration sets. My Stampin' Pastels and a Blender Pen did the trick for the color. The base of the card is Kraft. Versamark was used for the background stamps. Cute, cute! And I know just the person who is going to receive this card.

This was my first attempt at watercoloring. How fun. I used my Aquapainter and went to work. I purposely when out of the lines to give it that carefree look. The colors for the card are Old Olive, Ruby Red, More Mustard, and Almost Amethyst. The ink is the same. I added some Hodgepodge Hardware and my card was complete.
A few tips on watercoloring. Use Stazon Ink so the black doesn't run. Also, if you have watercolor paper use that. If you are using regular cardstock, which I did, just be careful how much water you are using. The paper can't hold that must moisture and you will end up with an icky looking image.
If you must have this set like I did, just contact me to place your order by March 17th!

And I must say, it is the perfect card for me. I love, love, love coffee! In the morning, my coffee pot is ready to go. Starbuck's is a good friend! Hot, iced, flavored, I'll take it anyway.
My husband also sent me a dozen red roses today. It was very sweet of him and I was surprised to get them. They are really pretty. He knows I've been a little sad since we've moved.
Cathy, Thank You for taking the time to send me this wonderful card. It really made my day.
If you have the chance, send a card to someone today. We make these great cards, so share one. I promise that it will make them feel special!

There are a few great reasons to consider becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
- First, you will earn a great income. You start earning when you hold workshops or place customer orders: you keep 20% of the net sales! This is called Instant Income because you don't wait for a check from Stampin' Up! - the 20% is yours immediately. For example, if your workshop has net total of $350, you keep $70.
- Second, you can earn additional income (volumn rebate) on your monthly net sales of $400 or more. Higher net sales increase your volumn rebate to as much as 20%. Your volumn rebate (paid monthly by Stampin' Up!) and your instant income can total up to 40% per month.
- Third, you receive a minimum of 20% discount on your purchases from Stampin' Up! And you receive volumn rebate on your own purchases! This is a great way to build your personal stamping supplies.
- Four, Stampin' Up! provides outstanding training to their demonstrators to ensure they have successful businesses.
These are just a few of the wonderful opportunities Stampin' Up! offers to their demonstrators.
You can choose to be a demonstrator that does in home workshops and classes OR be a hobby demonstrator. This means you purchase items for yourself at a discount. You can still sell to customers, it's up to you.
If you are looking for a great way to bring in extra income or to get a discount on product you love, this an opportunity for you. Think about it, write down your questions and then contact me. I'll be happy to answer all of your questions.
Contact me today to get more information on becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Sign up during the month of February and receive a special gift from Stampin' Up!
This card was created to participate in Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I used all colors from the In Color family. And I also used my Eastern Elegant Rub-Ons. The stamp set is Time Well Spent. It is a level 3 Hostess set.
That is about all I have to say about this card!
For this card, I used new Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons. These are so easy to use and really add some different to your projects. If need something new to try, give these a whirl. This paper i s the retired Apple Cider Designer Series Paper. There were a couple of sheets left over so I used them up. The card base is Kraft CS for both cards. Did you notice that I didn't use any stamps on this card?
Again, I used some retired DS paper, Darling Doodles. The stamp set is Be Happy. I really like this set. I added some Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain ribbon and my card was done. These colors work so well together.

Cathy shared this about her favorite candy: I love chocolate covered...cherries, raisins, cashews. I would have to agree with Cathy. Everyone had some yummy favorites, it was very hard not to run to the store and stock up ;-)
First let me say that before I had kids, my favorite candy was Jolly Ranchers or anything really sour. I could pass on the sweet stuff. NOW, forget about it! I would have to say my favorite candy is a Mr. Goodbar. Love those things! There are several runner-ups, Paydays (started eating those when I started running), Reeses, Mounds, ok I have to stop now.
Thank you so much to everyone that visited and left a comment. Be sure to check back often for other fun samples and giveaways. Have a great week!

Allison shared this about how often she stamps:
I try to stamp everyday...I feel like I need to post a new card on my blog everyday!
Most of you stamp everyday! It's that great. Depending on what is going on with my kids or what events I have coming up, I am an everyday stamper ;-)
Thank you to everyone for stopping by and sharing your comments.
Have a great week.
My very first Guest Stamper is Tanja Bumann. Tanja is a good friend of mine and participates in Stamps By Mail. Since starting Stamp Club last year, her talents have really blossomed.

I wanted to create a card that reflected the evening. This card was inspired by Beate. I thought the colors were happy and fun. The Groovy Guave and Ruby Red go so nicely together. I used the Slit Punch to create the scallop circle. It was so easy and I love the effect. Some Dazzling Diamonds in the center of each flower finished the card off nicely.

The Color Challenge was to use Real Red, Taken with Teal and Certainly Celery. Limited Supplies was to not use white or vanilla on your card. And Beate's Sketch can be viewed on her blog. Here is what I came up with.
I used Embrace Life stamp set and some black brads. I used the paper piercing tool to make the holes around the Celery Card Stock. The Real Red background is embossed with clear embossing powder. I don't love the Grey flower but I couldn't use white!
Have a great weekend.
