A Gift for You

If you like the look of a well worn antique(ish) feel on a card then the Chalk Talk set is for you (no pun intended).  Recreate the look and feel of a chalkboard with this set.  The coolest thing about this set is that it comes as a bundle.  Check it out here.  Just so you know… when I list the products I buy and use they are the clear set stamps.

I am happy beyond my wildest dreams.  Not only did I have a great day at work… I came home to find out I was a Pals Paper Arts “Pick”.  My best friend is in my Circle of Pals and she attended last weeks convention and she has taken the leap from hobby demonstrator to building her business.

I’m on cloud nine right about now.  Stampin’ Up! is the best hobby that has ever happened to me and I can’t stop smiling.  Please leave a comment and tell me what you like about Stampin’ Up!, making cards, or any other hobby you may have?

 Products Used for Cards:

Chalk Talk Clear Stamp Set
Pool Party card stock
Crushed Curry card stock
Old Olive card stock
Etcetera designer series paper

Thank you so much for visiting me and having a one way chat with me… LoL.  Sometimes I feel like I can hear your remarks as you read.  I once learned about the power of positive thinking and I like to couple it with the Law of Attraction.  I saw myself the other day in Houston at the Leadership conference.

I figured since I didn’t make it to the convention, I should be able to make it to Leadership… LoL.  After all, in a couple days… I’ll be half way done and on my way home… yayyyyyy.

Clean and Simple Personalized Note Cards

Have you ever made your own personalized note cards?  I never have (yet) and this one was not for me.  Here’s the story… of a lovely lady, who had not two note cards, but four… LoL… her name was Mrs. Brady… LoL.  Let me stop laughing and continue with my note card story.

As I sat at our watering hole, Pete’s, minding my own business waving at the Marines walking by, a co-worker brought her chips and dip to share with me (I didn’t eat any because I’m trying to stay away from junk food)… the first thing I noticed were a set of notecards (whisper white in color and a golden embossed “P” on them).

I didn’t skip a beat and said, “*Pam, you know you could make your own note cards for much much much cheaper than what you probably paid for those!”  She laughed and replied, “oh really?  I paid a bunch of money for these!”

So, what did I do?  That very night, I made her a sample of what she could do.  My my my, I just happen to have some gold embossing powder and a heat tool in my room (wink).  I used my Morning Post Alphabet stamps and heat embossed it with gold.  To add some bougie to it… I stamped the envelope with a “P” in Soft Suede ink (126978).

*Real name not used to protect the innocent. (LoL)

Stampin’ Up! For You

Have you ever received a package and you get all caught up in the excitement of tearing it open because you feel like it’s Christmas?  That happens to me each time someone sends me a card or a care package.  It takes me back to my childhood and I love every minute of it.

But sometimes… as the box is torn open I start looking for a note, a card, anything with the resemblance of someone’s writing… just to find nothing.  Although I’m thankful and pretty excited about my gift… I can’t help but feel cheated… LoL.

So, each time I’ve sent  a few gift to family or friends I try to always enclose a little gift card like this one.  Well, maybe not just like it, but something quick and easy or clean and simple that says, “hey, this is for you.”

The center of my flower came from the A Round Array stamp set.  The A Round Array set gives you endless, adorable possibilities for cards, banners, and scrapbook pages.  It coordinates with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, which I did not use.

Instead I took a sponge dauber and lightly sponged around the stamp to give it a daisy look.  I do apologize, but the tiny leaves are from our last Sale-a-bration Bloomin’ Marvelous.  If you don’t have it, you can always use the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die and add a little dimension to it..
