Good Morning Everyone – Happy New Year's Eve – Are you going to party tonight? Most of the time we just have a quiet night at home and listen to the fireworks at midnight. Actually most of the time I'm in bed by that time. Our neighbor is having a get together tonight and I might stop in, but my plans are to have a nice dinner and do some crafting. Gotta love it. I finished up my MOJO Monday card and it turned out great. It is mostly cased from Julie Tillman's card on her sight. Just love her work. I just changed some colors and made it in my Stampin' Up style using some of the new products in the Occasions Mini. Time is drawing near for the new mini's and I'm getting excited to show you some great ways to use your stamps. You're going to love this mini and of course Sale a Bration is very unique this year with being able to select stamps from the catty. Great idea. If you haven't already be sure and take a peek at the Brad/Button/ Ribbon share. I am always looking for ways to get new products and share the cost. Don't let PayPal scare you, it is a very safe and an easy way to purchase product, but if you would rather make other arrangements please don't hesitate to let me know and we can work something out. The products are great. Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Please have a fun and safe evening. It is supposed to get very cold here tonight and all next week. Baa Humbug!!!! I wish you all a good night and that you have a great year in 2010. Make more cards. LOL Toodles

Happy Monday To You All. Are you all digging out of the snow? It snowed most of the morning yesterday, but it didn't accumulate much. Just enough to make things a little slick on the sidewalks and driveways. It's going to get exciting around here beginning Jan. 5th. The Occasions and Sale A Bration Mini's will begin. If there is anything you would like in the Holiday Mini or on the Dormat List you have till Jan 4th to place your order. If you need an Occasions/Sale A Bration Mini please send me an email and I will mail one right out to you. Please check back later and I will have the deets on my Brad/Button/Ribbon share. Today I'm sharing with you a Joy Fold Card. You can dress these little guys up very cute. SCS has a video on how to fold it. I used the new stamp set from the Occasions Mini called the Love Bandit. So cute!!! I also used one of the new Sending Love Epoxy Brads, Real Red. To punch my scallop square I used the new Scallop Trim Border punch and the Scallop Trim Corner punch. During Sale A Bration you can get the Scallop Trim Border punch for FREE when you place an order for $50. It takes a little practice, but I know you can do it. The square is cut at 2 7/8 by 2 7/8. If you would like more deets, drop me an Email and I'll send you the info. Now is the time to begin planning your workshops. Gather up some family and friends. I would love to do a workshop for you. It can be at your house, my house or thru email. You can't fool me, I know you love FREE stuff. Thanks for stopping by and for letting me be your Stampin' Up Demonstrator. Have a great Monday. See you tomorrow with more fun stuff. LOL Toodles
Welcome to the week-end. Hope your holiday went as planned. We had a wonderful time with all of the family. We even had a bit of a White Christmas. That doesn't happen very often here in Mo. Some of the states had a bit more than they bargined for. New Years Eve is kind of quiet for us. It's hard for me to contemplate that it will soon be 2010. I kind of reflect back on the years and ask where did the time go. Now it's back to business. My card today features the stamp set For All You Do. I have fallen in love with the color Not Quite Navy all over again. The Kraft and Not Quite Navy combo is the cat's meow. LOL I have a TIP for you today. I didn't have a ribbon to match so I sponged NQN on white satin ribbon. Turned out gorgeous. That's what puts Stampin' Up above the rest you can color coodinate just about anything you need. Thanks for stopping in today, Tomorrow I will have a sneek peek from the Occasions Mini (The Loooooove Bandit). I hope you will get a little free time to stamp yourself, I sure hope to. Toodles
Just a reminder that the Holiday Mini will soon expire and the excitment begins for the Occasions and Sale a Bration Mini's, which begin on Jan 5th.

This is something new from SU. A 12 x 12, 48 sheets of 2 each of 24 double sided pages. WOW was that a mouth full. It has some really great paper in it.
