Ho - Ho-Ho!

I saw this card on the display board at Convention.  Isn't it cute?  The stamp set that was used is the new Ronald McDonald House set, Tag It.  When you buy this stamp set, Stampin' Up! will donate $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities. Since Stampin' Up! started this program 10 years ago, over $1 Million dollars has been donated!

My Husband Made a SWAP Card!

Not only did my husband come with me to Convention, he went to all of his classes and swapped!  He designed a card on My Digital Studio and added some natural trim ribbon and edged the front of the card!

Back from Convention!

Good times!  Convention 2013 is over....here are some highlights followed by a photo of one of my swaps!

                                                Susan, Julie (our daughter) and Al

This was a milestone year for me...10 years as a demonstrator; career sales of $200,000; earned the weekend getaway to San Diego.....so my sweetheart of a husband came with me this year and fully participated - even wearing the green sparkly hat!!!


It really is fun being a demonstrator with my daughter!  We've had a lot of fun together!

Some of my downline were able to attend with me this year as well - so fun!

I made altered notebooks as convention gifts this year, featuring the new new Chevron Punch.

For this swap, I used the Painter's Tape Technique. 

Supplies included: Whisper White, Basic Black, Blushing Bride and Soft Sky; Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding & Black Stazon Inks; Serene Silhouettes & Fabulous Florets; Ribbon Border Punch: Pistachio Pudding Ruffled Stretch Ribbon
