To a Great Friend …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy Monday to you and I hope many of you are warmer than those of us in Wisconsin … burrrrr! It’s a bit nippy here with wind chills down around 35 below.

On that note, I’d like to warm things up by letting you know today is the day we kick off the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs!

Something else that will warm you up is our beautiful “Painted Blooms” designer series paper. You can’t think anything but spring when you look at this pattern …


The flowers are so beautiful, and this was a left over piece from the card I shared January 3rd!

No fuss with this card, I simply stamped my greeting directly onto the designer paper! I used the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set which you can get FREE during Sale-a-bration which starts today!

If you are not familiar with Sale-a-bration … it is our most anticipated promotion of the year, with many ways to earn Free stamp sets and accessories. You can chose a FREE Sale-a-bration item with each $50 purchase (before shipping & handling)


I couldn’t resist not decorating the inside and you’ll be amazed at how much this beautiful stamp set mimics the designer paper. The stamp set is the new “Painted Petals” from the Occasions catalog – pg. 19. It’s a two-step stamp set so it was easy to stamp the pink petals and green stems. The greeting is also part of this set.

With the purchase of the Painted Petals stamp set, Painted Blooms Designer paper and the Blackberry Bliss ribbon, you will be pretty darn close to getting the FREE “Simply Wonderful” stamp set! Just add some needed cardstock or inks and you’ll be there.


Thank you for visiting my blog today! Please let me know if you have any questions of the products I showed you or Sale-a-bration. I

f you do not have a demonstrator and would like me to be yours, let me know if you need either the Occasions or Sale-a-bration catalog.

Stay warm and have a wonderful Monday ~
