Wow. It is hard to believe how quickly 2015 went. What a year it was! Madelyn, my first grand child was born! There is nothing better than being a grandparent. It is just awesome!
I know I have used this stamp set called Your Presents a lot lately but I can’t help myself. I love it. It is just one of those sets that can used for years to come. It is not trendy and will never go out of style. It retires on January 5th and I want to remind everyone that if they want it, they need to order it before it is gone forever.
The happy birthday sentiment is a Hostess Set from the 2015 Annual Catalog. It can only be purchased with a qualifying order of $150 or more. It can be one person’s order or a group order as long as the order reaches that amount.
One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! stamp sets is that most of them are very versatile because you can use them for different occasions at different times of the year. This set stamp is called Your Presents and is in the 2015 Holiday Catalog. Obviously this meant this set would be great to use at Christmas time. As you can see, you can also use it any time of the year because it makes a great birthday card too. This is one of the stamp sets that is retiring on January 4th so if you like it, you will need to order it before that date or it will be gone forever (except, of course, on eBay where you will pay double for it!)
This picture does not show the new product I am trying to give you a sneak peek of. If you look at the two solid presents, you can see some sparkle. Stampin’ Up! is going to be selling Wink Of Stella! It is a great way to add some sparkle without the glop and mess of Dazzling Details. It comes as a brush and dries really quickly. You are going to love it! Look for it in the 2016 Occasions Catalog that comes out on January 5th!
This week’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge was given to us by Bev. She used a photograph to challenge us. Here is my card:
The colors I used don’t really need any explanation. They are the colors in the photograph (Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush, Basic Black and Whisper White). I did have to sneak in a little Melon Mambo because of the Rubik’s Cube on the table. The gifts represent the square one color pillows on the couch and the squiggle under the word “celebrate” is for the pillows that have the designs.
