For this card I got to play around with stamps and the matching punch... love that.  I love that Stampin' Up! makes my life so easy!!!!  I used a bit of DSP to brighten up the card .  I really like using the diecuts from the Tasteful Trim die on cards and pages, just to give it the perfect look.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!

What a nice evening!!!!

Last night I met a great group of ladies at a workshop.  One of them reminds me so much of me, curious and wants to see it all.  I mean this in a good way of course.  I was always so excited to see new things which I am lucky because being a Stampin' Up! Demo I get the chance to see new products before it is available.  Not only do I get to see and purchase new products beforehand, I get to earn money making cards and showing scrapbooking pages to others.  I love being a demo and getting to use such great products.  If you would like information on becoming a Demo let me know because right now there is a sweet deal on!!!
So last night, I had taken a bunch of my new cards to show them and they really seemed to like them.  Especially the ones made with the Snow Much Fun  stamp set.  I just realised I have not taken pictures of them yet. I will try to do that this week.  I have been very busy like all of you with the children home from school and I apologise for not posting as often as I would like.  I promise when school starts I will be better.
Today is a difficult day for my family, as it the marks the day that my dad passed away seven years ago...  Time passes so quickly and we really need to take the time to be with the ones we love.  We learned the hard way not to take people and things for granted.  I miss you dad. Love you.
