Stampin’ Up! Last Day for Paper Pumpkin Sale and A Blog Candy Winner!

Hey y’all!  This is your last day to save 50% on a fun Paper Pumpkin kit!  Scroll on down for the details and to get signed up.

I want to thank everyone who entered my Paper Pumpkin Blog Candy giveaway – there’s definitely a lot of love for Stampin’ Up!’s wonderful Designer Series Paper, that’s evident! 🙂

If you remember – I have two Paper Pumpkin Kits to give away.  The first number pulled will receive a Broadway Star kit from June!

And that lucky winner is…Dianne Stoudt, who submitted comment #2:  “I love the retired Quilted Christmas DSP!”

The second number pulled will receive the July Picnic Paradise kit!

And THAT person is…K. Boyer! who wrote: “I really like picture perfect party. I’ve made some really fun birthday cards with that pack. The picnic paper pumpkin is so cute. Thanks for the chance to win.”

So – Whoo-hoo!!  I’ll be contacting both of you shortly to get a good mailing address then will put your PP kits in the mail quick as I can!  Congrats, ladies – hope you enjoy them!

Speaking of Paper Pumpkin…today’s the last day to get in on the Paper Pumpkin Half Price Sale!

Happy happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!! About this time next week we’ll be done with the “hard” part of the test and will be in cruise control mode to the end!  We’ll be back to “regular” hours and weekends completely off!  And – I’ll be only about a week and a half from heading home!  Whoo-hooo! 🙂

So – couple of things before we get going.  First:  it’s time to be thinking about 2018 Holiday Catalog Shares!  I’ve got mine open and welcome you to take a look-see and get signed up!  Check out all the details and find a form for signing up right here.  Second:  today’s the last day to get entered to win the Pqper Pumpkin Blog Candy!  Click right here to get your name in the mix!

Stampin’ Up! Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Sneak Peek

Good Monday!  So…this is the next-to-last 12-hour Monday for me.  After the next one, we should go back to “regular” (to include actually taking the weekend off – gasp!) so that will be a relief.  I’m not as wired for this kind of schedule as I used to be.  12 hour day?  Got it.  Five in a row?  Cool – can do it in my sleep.  FIFTEEEN days in a row?  Not so easy any more.

But – I can do anything for 2 more weeks, so…this too shall pass.  I’ll be glad, though, to get back to having a little time and a lot more creative energy to make cards.  I have a lot of “wanna” when I get to the hotel at night, but…not a lotta “DO”!

Fortunately, one of the goodies that arrived in my pre-order was a Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack.  I used a few goodies from that, along with a large Poppy Parade Santa’s Workshop Card and Envelope from the pack we got as a free give-away on the Cruise.  And not one ink pad was opened in the making of this card!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Hold on to The Cross of Hope for Easter!

Happy Easter, y’all!  Rejoice in the miracle of this day!

So – bad news first. 🙁  I’m not going to be doing a FB Live video tonight – sorry!  I’m cooking today and going to our friends’ for dinner, so…it’s just not in the cards.  And – I suspect y’all have plans of your own! So – we’ll make a date and meet again next Sunday!

The good news is that I have a whole card – with instructions! – to share with you right now! No sneak peek! 🙂

I felt that an Easter card was called for, so I went to my Hold On To Hope bundle – which includes the Cross of Hope Framelits.  I added in some leaves from the wonderful Petals & More Framelits and a pretty little sentiment from You’re Inspiring.  Take a look-see:
