My Mom....

I'm breaking blogger rules today and smiling the entire time. I'd like to showcase a Halloween card creatively crafted by my Mom (read more about her here). It's not the Mom part that breaks the rules, but the fact that all the supplies aren't current, smile! Just using what she had on hand and helping me out by using up some of my outdated supplies.
I love her use of Witches Brew DSP which lends itself so well to trimming for a unique border.
And my Mom, with her sweet smile and amazing attitude.... the best of the best! Thank you cousin Kevin for coming to visit - loved every minute of having you here.

A Fun Way to Build a Stampin' Up! Business

Would it completely make your day if someone handed you a lovely little 3 x 3 card wrapped in a simple cellophane bag? I would love, love it!
Learning from my awesome upline, Becky Roberts, it's a simple way to build this amazing Stampin' Up! business!
Keep a couple of small cards or projects in your purse and as you go about your day, to the grocery store, the post office, the park, the gas station, you will come in contact with lots of people - many of them that go the extra mile or have an extra smile. That's the person you'd like to gift with a simple little thank you! Just a heartfelt "thank you, you did a great job" and then hand them a little card, complete with your contact info on the back. Mine say
"more fun projects at"
And then leave it there.... if it piques their interest in your business and how you make such fun stuff, great. If not, they'll still appreciate the thank you and you'll feel like your day meant a little more also.
Awesome stuff - this Stampin' Up! business!

    Truly Grateful....

    I love this card in it's simplicity.... just a bit of DSP dressed up with Glimmer Paper and some embossing. Stampin' Up! just makes it easy!
    And today I'd like to share one of the things I'm truly grateful for....
    As some of you may know, my sweet, sweet Mom has been recently diagnosed with ALS or, as commonly known, Lou Gehrig's Disease. A disease without a cure. A disease where your muscle slowly atrophies until your lungs are not strong enough to breathe.
    So, why am I grateful? For the amazing spirit she has that makes the journey easier for each of us. She finds so many things to enjoy and be thankful for each day and her focus is truly on others and never lingers on herself. I love her "why not me?" attitude that is so accepting but still with the spunk and fight to look at healthy alternative answers that will allow her to live to the fullest. I so want to be just like her when I grow up!
    So grateful to you, Mom, for the amazing example of living life just the way it's meant to be lived.

    Happy Birthday!

    Bring on the Cake!
    It was birthday time again in our family - this time our sweet daughter-in-law!  So a sweet and quickly put together card, perfect for the occasion.

    I love the paper; candles and polka dots paired easily together with a scalloped border. Bring on the Cake has been one of my favorite go-to stamp sets for birthdays since it was first introduced.

    And.... the birthday girl. The beautiful Mom to two of our handsome grandsons!
