One More Day

Yep, just one more 'wake up' and Bob the Builder and I will be on a plane!  We will spend a few days in Las Vegas visiting my Mom and step Dad then will continue on to Hawaii for the Stampin' Up! incentive trip.  We are extending our stay in Hawaii, staying with friends, making this the longest, single vacation we've ever taken.  

Stampin' Up! sure knows how to pamper us, too!  We will be staying at the Sheraton Waikiki Resort – all expenses paid!

  Sheraton Waikiki Pool

Ohhhh, look at that gorgeous pool overlooking the ocean!  We are so darned excited!  We haven't been back to Hawaii in 14 years and we can't wait to re-explore the island.  Spending it along side my Stampin' Up! friends will make the trip all that much more enjoyable.  

BUT, while I'm gone I'm a bit concerned.  

I've never been away from the Studio for this length of time and I still have minimum sales requirements to meet.  

So, I'm asking for your help — but not without providing YOU with something in return!

Beginning tomorrow, May 9th, through Saturday, May 23rd, I will be offering an exclusive, online shopping special.  

 Place an online order of $30 (before tax and shipping) and choose 1 of 14 products for absolutely FREE!  This special is not sponsored by Stampin' Up! and the free products will come directly from me after I return from our trip. 

All the details will be outlined in tomorrow's blog post so be sure to come back and see the entire list of freebies.  


The "Birthday Surprise" stamp set is on the retired list and since I'm feeling nostalgic about these departing stamp sets I wanted to share a card I recently created.


 I used the "Big on You" stamp set from the Occasions Catalog for the large greeting. SAM_5119

The party hat comes from the "Birthday Surprise" set which I stamped in Daffodil Delight ink on Daffodil Delight cardstock. I used the retiring Petite Pennants Builder Punch to punch it out and added a Rhinestone to top it off.  

Cutting Dimensions

    • Whisper White cardstock for greeting is cut 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
    • Sweet Taffy Designer Paper is cut 4" x 5 1/4"
    • Tempting Turquoise cardstock is cut 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" then cut on the diagonal for a piece used behind the greeting.
