Happy (belated) Heart Day!

I'm really running behind here...but at least maybe i'll give you an idea for next year's valentine's, right?? Anyway, here's the card i made for my hubby this year.

I made this card with only sets i had gotten for FREE. That's one thing i really love about being a demonstrator! More opportunities to get free stuff!

Actually, YOU can get these sets for free, as well. The words are from a set which you can get for free right now just for spending $50 or for hosting a party whose sales reach $300. (There are 5 sets and one pack of rub-ons to choose from.)

Sale-a-Bration ends on March 17th, so be sure to contact me right away if you want to make a purchase during this great sale, or better yet, host a party during this time. It's really the very best time of the year to do either or both!

The other set, which has 12 stamps in it, is not available to purchase. The only way to get it, for free! is by hosting a party whose sales are at least $500. You can of course take advantage of this regular hostess benefit in addition to Sale-a-Bration.

Stamp sets: Time Well Spent (hostess), Lots of Thoughts (Sale-a-Bration)
Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, and Rose Red
Ink: Mellow Moss and Rose Red ink pads
Tools: Scallop Circle punch, 1⅜ Circle punch
Adhesive: Tape runner, Stampin’ Dimensionals

A New Look!

I guess i'm a bit behind the times, if we're supposed to make changes for New Year's. But today i finally had the chance to freshen things up here on my little blog. Besides color and layout changes, you'll notice some new "extras" on the left side of the page. Be sure to vote in the poll i put up - you only have until the end of February to do it!
