Happy 70th Birthday!

On Monday, my boss turned 70.  Our first birthday together was December 1990 which was 26 years ago.  That doesn't seem possible... she was 44 and (yikes!) I was only 31.  Holy Smokes, it seems like yesterday and now this is our last birthday together as she is retiring at the end of the year.

Hey Chick - Sneak Peek

I can hardly wait for my pre-order to arrive with my Occasions Catalog goodies and my Sale-a-Bration freebie called Hey Chick.  Isn't this just the cutest chicken you've ever seen?

On Monday night, our weSTAMP Team had our annual Christmas Party and we were able to use this for one of our Make and Takes.  I just love it!

Did you know YOU could also order fun new things a month before everyone else, when you become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and join my team?  Now is the perfect time to join with the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration about to begin and while the Holiday Catalog is still live.  Great deals with your Demonstrator discounts!

Interested?  Questions?  Just give me a call or send me an email.  I'd love to have you on my team!

Thank you for looking in today.  Happy Hump Day!

Simple Christmas Stars

So simple, yet so pretty!  Too bad the pictures don't show how nice the sparkle is.

Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock 5 1/4" x 4"
Red Glimmer Paper - scrap big enough to adhere behind the smallest star
Silver Glimmer Paper - scrap big enough to adhere behind the smallest star
Stars Framelits - smallest star
Gold Baker's Twine (from Baker's Twine Trio Pack)

Stamps:  Star of Light (Holiday Catalog)
Real Red - Ink

I used scotch tape to hold the Baker's Twine through the star to the back and then tied the 2nd piece of Baker's Twine around the first one.  I tried using glue dots to attach the bow and it tends to come off.  Tying it on works the best.

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Tuesday!

Christmas Magic - updated!

Today's card is a re-arranged cased card from Joyce Whitman.  I spotted it on Pinterest and loved the clean lines and just had to give it a go.  I rearranged the layout and used a different sentiment stamp.  Trust me, finding a sentiment to fit into that little space was tough.  Thankfully I had a couple of friends over that had some sets that I didn't have so we found something that would work.

   (or 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2")

The bell is stamped with Crumb Cake and the sentiment with Real Red.

** Outside sentiment (which I forgot to list originally) is from Hang Your Stocking.  Thank you Linda for noticing!

Inside the sentiments come from Tin of Tags and Snow Place.

Thank you for looking in today.  It was sure fun to be able to stamp again and be creative without being so tired I just wanted to sleep!

Have a Blessed Sunday!  ~ Donna
