The Gang's All Meer

Used the Gang's All Meer and Happy Birthday to You sets, both of these sets you can earn for free during Sale-a-Bration. I used my finger in the ink to color the meerkats. Use what you have available! Used our color chart sheets to group these colors together, Early Espresso, Coastal Cabana and Garden Green.

Painted Poppies

Today has been a good day!  I have posted to this blog, walked on the treadmill, read over lunch from a new Bible study book, and ate two salads!  Now one of those was a 7 layer salad and the other was followed by 2 Oreo's we can't be perfect!   Don't you just love this set?   If I sell 4 of them before Feb 15, I earn a free set from the new catalog in June.   We will use the set in Feb for class and you will just love the matching DSP and dies.   I CASE'D the idea for the hand-drawn square around the image from Tap Tap Stamp, but I added a few changes.  I love the subtle detail of the background stamp in this set, I used Poppy Parade ink on the same color paper.  I also used new words from the set Peaceful Moments, this is a must-have. 


I'm putting together my DSP sample pages tonight and I have extra paper because I preordered the "Join Special" you can get right now!  Join SU! and get a free sample pack of 6x6 DSP from the Jan-June Mini Catalog, a mini paper cutter and a bouns stamp set.  Plus all the other wonderful items you pick for your starter kit.  Have questions contact me!   You can join online from my web site carmencal.stampinup.net

Great Gift for Guys

I gave these to some of the men in my family.  When I handed them to one of them he asked: "will you remind me when to send them?"   I told him he was on his own for that.  These are a great assortment of cards the men in your life might need.  I did use some retired products, enjoy!
