Pillow Gifts

We had so much fun at the first Design Divas Retreat!!  We had 14 overnight guests and 7 Saturday-only guests!  We stamped, scrapped, created, and giggled into the wee hours of the night!!  Thank you to everyone that came.  Mandy and I can't wait to do it again!!  We hope everyone had a relaxing weekend and felt like a queen!  (Or at least a little bit pampered!!)  For those of you that didn't get to make it, here's one of the gifts the girls found on their pillow Friday night:

Is this adorable or what?  We wanted to give everyone some of our Brights Buttons.  Mandy came up with this adorable way to give them!!  :)

Our next Design Divas Retreat is already in the works for January.  Stay tuned for more details!!

Last Chance - Extreme Guitar

I am really sad to see the Extreme Stamp Sets go.  I just love them and they make such great "guy" cards. Here's a card I made last month for my son's guitar teacher.

My car battery died while I was sitting in his driveway waiting for Evan to finish his lesson.  Mr. Richard (the awesome guitar teacher), spent almost an hour cleaning my battery cable-thingys and jump-starting my car.  He even called me the next day to make sure we got it fixed.  I wanted to make him a thank you card with a restaurant gift card - because I know we interrupted his dinner time that evening!  He told my son - "Wow, that looks like an expensive card!"  My son told him I made it and went on to tell him all about my Stampin' Up! business!  (Insert beaming smiley face here!)

I know I will continue to use these stamp sets long after they're gone - there's the Extreme Guitar, Skateboard, Dirt Bike, Snowboard and Surfboard.  Make sure and get yours before it's too late!  You can shop for these stamp sets in my online store here through June 30th.  Then, they're gone for good.  :(

Products Used:
Stamps:  Extreme Guitar, Extreme Elements, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Night of Navy
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Naturals White
Punches:  Word Window, Modern Label

Thanks for stopping by!

Please note that the 12x12 cardstock is not being discontinued, it's just being packaged differently in the upcoming catalog.  (I freaked a little bit when I first saw that on the last-chance list!!)  If you have any questions about anything please contact me.  Happy Shopping!!  :)
