Sunflowers and Followers

I had a few moments yesterday and "ran" back to my stamp room. I had just seen a beautiful garden of sunflowers and remembered that I had never even put this set together. I mounted it, designed it and stamped it - all in about 15 minutes. If you click on the image you can see a closer view where I used an SU background stamp. All products are from Stampin Up. Hope you like it! Also, I'm hoping that some of you will like my "stuff" enough to become followers of my blog. Thank you for your comments and continued support! Have a bloomin' wonderful day!

Stampin' Up Business Opportunity

I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator twice. The first time I signed up, I felt like I was swimming in a sea with no lifesaving devices anywhere. As a result, I dropped after having accumulated more stamping supplies than any human should own. However...I really enjoyed the products and missed getting them at a discount. So.....I found an incredible upline who is located in Pennsylvania - Janet Wakeland. I rejoined with much trepidation, but found that this business could be worked with me in Colorado and my upline in Pennsylvania. She has been an inspiration to me, both creatively and businessly (not a word, but it sounds interesting.) My goal is to build my business and I would like to set the ball in motion through the internet. (I live in a remote area of Colorado and have struggled with finding recruits in the area.) I plan on using the tools that Janet has provided me and will send out packages and emails on a regular basis to my new recruits. Stampin' Up is offering an incredible promotion for people to sign up - $85.00 which includes business tools and many "new" products. For more details, please visit my Stampin' Up website at: If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me at:,

As a further incentive, all of my new recruits will receive four yards each of the new in colors polka dot ribbon as a thankyou for becoming part of my team.

Dates: July 15 - August 31, 2009

True Friendship Rose Card

I think I'm having a hard time letting go of last year's SU In Color Kiwi. It's definitely one of my favorite greens. This card is all SU products. The sentiment is from the Serene Sunflower set. I really enjoyed making this card because it was very quick to throw together. Thank you for looking and leaving your comments. Have a great day!

MIA in Texas

Well folks, I've been missing in action in the great state of Texas. I went to pick up my boys from Camp Stewart and then spent time at my sister's ranch in Wimberly before going to Corpus Christi to spend time with my mom. A great time was had by all, but I neglected to take my computer with me so I was unable to upload anything to my blog. In addition to which, I'm sorry to say that my last two weeks at home in Colorado were spent at my store and/or teaching dancing. Stamping was no where in the equation. However.... Yippee.... I had today off and was able to start catching up and "maybe" even getting ahead with some of my posts. This card is one that I made using SU's Pocket Silhouette stamp set. All of the designer paper is SU, as well as the ribbon and solid paper. The only "non" SU product was the nestabilities die I used to cut out an emboss the image. I hope you like it. Please leave your comments as they are always an inspiration to me. Have a great day! More later....
