Time to Celebrate!

So many reasons to CELEBRATE today! First, it's my friend's birthday ...and like each of us, she is a ONE of a kind (in a good way, lol!)! Happy Birthday Sandi, I hope you enjoy every single minute of your special day!! Next reason to CELEBRATE is SALE-A-BRATION, which begins today and runs through March 17th!! This is a great time to order a few extra items from your wish list because for every $50 you spend, you get a bonus...a FREE stamp set from the SAB catalog! I love free stuff. And SU just announced today another bonus:

New Demonsrators During Sale-A-Bration ~ anyone who joins as a demonstrator can choose any stamp set--a value of up to $47.95--from the Spring-Summer 2008 Collection! Plus, new demonstrator get 20 percent off the Demonstrator Starter Kit--over $350 of Stampin' Up! products and business supplies for only $159!

That Starter kit is a HUGE value! Click HERE to see what's included in the kit. That's one of the reasons a lot of people sign up to be a "hobby demo"....they may not be interested in hosting workshops and classes, they just want to take advantage of the great discounts and other little perks we receive as demos. Which leads me right up to my 3rd reason to CELEBRATE....This month marks my One Year Anniversary as a Stampin' Up demonstrator! I signed up last year, in February, during SAB. And let me tell you, it's one of the best decisions I ever made! SU is a great company to work notch!! If you've ever considered becoming a demo, now would be a great time to check into it, ask a few questions. Contact your local demonstrator or email me for more details. My email is: .

I appreciate my customers (times a million)! And they know how much I like to give away free a bonus for my customers this month and as my way of thanking them for their support over this past year, I want to give something away!! During my anniversary month of February, for every $50 order (before shipping) that my customers place with me, I will put their name in a drawing. On March 1st, I will draw one name to be the grand prize winner! What's the prize...well, that's a surprize. I will reveal the prize a little later this month....but it will be a minimum $25 value and something any stamper would love! I think there just might be some blog candy coming up later this month too, so stay tuned for that! Wooooo-hoooo!!! So many reasons to Celebrate!

I'm always looking for inspiration for color combos...I am sooo color challenged, you wouldn't even believe it (but then again, if you've been to my blog before, maybe your would believe it, lol!). I found these napkins in Walmart and knew I had to do a card in these this napkin was the whole inspiration for my card...isn't that funny?

This will be my last post for about a week. I'll be out of town, but will be checking my emails periodically. So if you have questions or want to place an order...don't hesitate to email me! I'd love to hear from you = ) !!

Supplies for the card ~

Stamp set: One of a Kind

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Shimmery White, Berry Bliss DP

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Celery, Tempting Turquoise

Accessories: Boho Blossoms Punch, Ticket Corner PUnch, SU Markers, 5/8" Chocolate gg ribbon, 1/4" Celery gg ribbon, Turquoise rhinestone brad, dimentionals

Big Hugs...Have a great week = ) !!

OH Wow!!! I was at WM this past Thursday and bought those same napkins as well as one other set for this very reason...the inspiration I knew they would lend for papercrafting!!! I love your interpretation, I haven't worked on mine as yet. Thanks so much for sharing. Barb g

OMG Nancy what a stunning Celebration card. I love the color combo and mass of gorgeous punched boho blossoms. I was all ready to order "One of a Kind" and the punch, when SU stopped shipment on the stamp set (not punch) until they get a small issue with the placement of the stamped flower image. Must not line up well enough with the punch. In the meantime, I will just have to enjoy your card.
BTW, you are doing such a FANTASTIC job with your blog. So professional, eye appealing and fun. TFS :-) Your friend and fan, nancy
