Thankful for YOU and a HUGE Announcement!

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers! I have a special card for you today along with a HUGE announcement (wait for it....!) 

I wanted to create a card that shows how very GRATEFUL I am this year for all of YOU! It has been an incredible year and you all have blessed me with a job I love and the opportunity to work from home and be around more for my kids. I can't explain to you all just how much that means to me and my family. 

You all also made THIS happen for me this year!
I was extremely humbled and GRATEFUl to be #68 Globally in Stampin' Up. 
That also meant I was #34 in the USA!
Wow. Just WOW! And it's all because of YOU ALL! 
Thank you for the bottom of my heart. 

Now, let me tell you a little about this card. I created the cup free hand, no template. I embossed the watercolor paper with White Embossing Powder (Paisley Stamps) and did an ombre look using Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze using an Aqua Painter. 
I made the "whip cream" with the Sweet Cupcake stamp embossed in White and then a very light wash of Crumb Cake. I flicked a little bit of Early Espresso on top to look like cinnamon or maybe chocolate? LOL! 
The background paper is Fancy Frost and I used the same colors and a Foam Brayer to create the ombre look there. 
Lastly, the sentiment s from The Paisleys and Posies set as well in Early Espresso. 

Now, on to my big surprise!!
I want to show you all how grateful I am for you so I decided to copy Ellen and do a 12 Days of Giveaways!!
Beginning December 1st, I will be giving away a prize a day for twelve days. And these prizes are BIG. Stamp Sets, Framelits and Project Life! (Some are pictured above.) Each day, I will post the prize here along with card samples using that product and all you have to do to enter is leave a comment!! Everyone is welcome to enter every day! I hope you all feel the love from me because I just can't thank you enough!!!

In the meantime, I will be on Vacation with my family for the next week. That means no new blog posts! I am going dark! Ha! ;-) Trying to be 100% present with them. But, when I come back on December 1st, it will be with my first giveaway! Make sure to check back every day!
Once again, Happy Thanksgiving!!!
See you in a week!

Stampin' BINGO!


It's BACK! This is everyone's favorite event and I've made it even better this time! For my local customers, I have rented a hall so we can accommodate more people comfortable! For my long distance customers, I am offering this as an online (Facebook) event! I am so excited and I hope you will join me! If you'd like to see what my past Stampin' BINGO events looked like, click through these posts. 


Details for the LIVE San Antonio 
event on December 30th:  

DEADLINE to resgister is Decemebr 23rd., COST: $40






For the ONLINE event on December 29thhere are the details: DEADLINE to resgister is Decemebr 16th., COST: $40

By popular demand, I am offering BINGO online! My “in person” Stampin’ BINGO is so much fun 
and I want to bring that joy to my long distance friends as well! This round of Online BINGO will be very limited 
because I want to make sure we work out the kinks before I offer this to everyone. 
You must be on Facebook in order to participate. It will be conducted through Facebook Events. You also must 
be present at the LIVE time. If you can’t be present, I will play your card for you. 
In the mail, the week before the event, you will receive a BINGO card, supplies for three make and takes and a 
SWAG BAG of product ($20 value.) 
At the live event, we will play four games of good old fashion BINGO. I will call the numbers on a thread in the
 event. You will need to watch the thread and refresh your page if you aren’t seeing any numbers. I will go slow to make sure everyone keeps up. I will have copies of each players card and once someone calls BINGO, I will check their card. Prizes for each game will be products from the new Occasions Catalog. Each games’ prize will be greater than the one before. The last game will be the GRAND PRIZE and it will be AMAZING! These will be mailed to you after the event. 
If for some reason we have technical difficulties and you are not on the event while I am calling the numbers, I will play your BINGO card. Even if you for some reason can’t get on, your card will still be played. This will most defiantly include some trial and error and I am hoping for little issues, but ask for patience as this is the first one! :-)  Also, if your package does not arrive on time, let me know. I will have digital copies of everyone’s BINGO card and can email it to you if needed. We will work very hard to make sure everyone is able to play! 
Between games, we will have Make and Take Videos. You can make your projects then or you can make them later as you will have access to the videos afterwards as well. 
I will also be calling door prizes throughout the event. These will be mailed to you after the event. 
 Everyone is welcome! If you are a customer, a newbie, an “oldie” or even another SU Demo, you are welcome to play! This is fun for everyone!! 
Space is VERY limited for this event because it is the very first one, so register today!
