Leadership Conference in Orlando - Festivities begin ....well they are already started...but I will be there tomorrow.

Long long story, but I will make it much shorter.

Moved from Maryland to Florida, stayed with my brother while searching for a house, found house, came back to Maryland for Christmas, back to Florida for settlement on house and moved in Jan 2nd, same day my grandson was born in Maryland!  Had to have a new roof on new house, so waited for that to complete and finally 10 days ago, flew up to Maryland to meet my grandson and stay with daughters, seeing family and friends too.   Made it to our Quarterly Stampin' Demo Meeting and also met with some friends and shared some of those cards made with them.   In the meantime, new roof on house, so husband drove to Maryland and after seeing all of my daughters, grandchildren and most of my family and some friends, we left before the snowflakes started falling Sunday evening and drove back to Florida.....

It is too late to attend Leadership :{, however I am headed to Orlando for all the other festivities, meeting old friends and meeting new ones too, all with the same thing in common, Stampin' Up!   A great company that I have been a part of for 10 years.

I hope to share some photos with you over the next few days......The last time I stayed at this hotel, the internet was IFFY to non existent, so they may have to wait until I return home sometime Saturday evening.

In the meantime, here is a share or 2.from the cards we made at our Quarterly Meeting.

BUT FIRST,   meet my newest grandson, Ryan and his big sister, Rachel.   She loves her brother!!!

Here is one of my favorite sets from the Occasions catalog, Sheltering Tree!   I just LOVE IT.

 and here is one of my favorites from the Sale a bration FREE sets, This bird is SO CUTE!  Want to find out how to get it for FREE too?   Just contact me via, phone, txt, email, fb....whatever!!!!

Tuesday Deals, New Photopolymer Stamp Set....

Every Tuesday, Stampin' Up! puts several items on "Sale"   Weekly Deals...This week, one of my all time favorite punches is on there, it is part of a 3 punch set, the small flower....isn't it the cutest flower?  I love the other punches that are in the set, but the flower is by far my favorite and most used.

  I'm ordering this punch set, yep, I have used it SO much that if I misplaced it or broke it, I would truly miss it.  I can't pass up the price...and while I am at it, I am going to order enough to get a FREE sale a bration item.   Want to take advantage of any of these deals?   These items on the Weekly Deals are only good until next Monday evening....Place your order  thru my website  no later than Monday, Jan 19th, 10 pm, use the Hostess Code:  UH9MCJZX  to place the order and your name will go in for a drawing for FREE merchandise.   Email me or txt me 3 items on your WISH LIST that are $10 or less, and I will choose from that list if your name is chosen.

Stampin' Up! just came out with a new Photopolymer Stamp Set is perfect for stamping on the back of tags for your creations if you sell them, which is an Angel Policy requirement if you use Stampin' Up! copyright material on your creations that you sell.    If you never heard of this policy, just contact me and I will explain it to you....THIS IS ONLY IF YOU SELL YOUR CREATIONS.  You can also use some of these stamps on the back of your creations to let the recipient know it was made with LOVE by you.

I'm ordering this stamp set too, all those stamps for only $15.95!   Definitely worth replacing my old set that I stamp on the back of cards and projects that I make.

Now that my Stamp Room is organized (at least for now!), I have had loads of time to play....NOT!, but I have had a little time to stamp with some new products from the Occasions Catalog and Sale a bration brochure.

Two cards alike.....I almost always make 2 cards when I create a card, I figure if I am cutting the card stock in half I might as well make 2...there is almost no extra time to make the 2nd one and now if I want, I can send one and keep the other....Not this time, I sent them both out.   They are created with the new set, Butterfly Basics on page 26.   There are some new framelits to go with the set, and you save 15% when you purchase both....You also get to choose whether you want wood mount, clear mount or photopolymer.   The butterfly is stamped and cut out using one of the framelits.   This card was so quick and easy, you could also add to it some ribbon, or bakers twine or ribbon...I added pearls...The colors are Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.

Tomorrow, I am going to work on a sketch....sometimes when I need some inspiration, I search for a sketch and then let my imagination go.....sometimes it's a Good Thing and sometimes it ends up in the recycle bin!!!

Have a Great Weekend, create something fun and give/send it to someone and make their day!

If you ever have any questions, do not hesitate to ask...
