Love this snowman....think I will call him Stretch!

Meet Stretch...isn't he a cutie patootie? He is one of the images from the set "Snow much fun!". This is the set we will be using at Sandy's house in November for our stampastack! Cherry cobbler and crumb cake combine to make a perfect colour combo for Christmas.
I used a blender pen to add a hint of colour and dimension....isn't he cute?

Have a wonderful weekend...we are headed to the beach to close up our trailer. It is rainy and cool...typical weather when we close up....I am taking my Simply Scrappin kit...and getting prepped to show you some sneak peeks for the "BIG EVENT!" Stay tuned....The 2nd annual Save our Hooters event will be bigger and better than ever!!!!

Save the date...Sunday Nov 20th

Back by popular demand we are gearing up for another "FUN"d raiser to fight breast cancer. You will make at least 10 cards, and what you don't get finished, you take home. We will be using a Simply Scrappin Kit from the winter mini....so fun!

Time, cost and the rest of the details, along with some teasers will be posted here next week. In the mean time...check out this fun little card made using the stocking punch and some glimmer paper!!!

It's all about the Big Shot!

Checking out the gallery on Splitcoast is a daily ritual.  Wednesday's is the sketch challenge day.  While doing my daily "stroll" I fell in love with THIS card and totally copied it.

Since this is the month you can get a FREE Big Shot by signing up to get the demo kit, I "shot" this card up.  The white panel is cut with the top note die and embossed with polka dot embossing folder.  The real red layer is embossed with the newest folder from the winter mini.  The glimmer paper (ask me how to colour it to get any colour match!) was embossed, and then I punched out the centre to make it look like Santa's belt buckle.  It may be hard to see, but the black belt is scored on either side of the ribbon for added dimension.

I am on vacation this week, and am making final plans for my annual Big Event.  The creative juices are flowing, and I am getting in the crafty groove! The colours of fall are in full bloom here and I think that is helping me in getting some projects completed.

Free is my favourite 4 letter word!!!!

During October, new demonstrators will get a FREE Big Shot OR up to $125 in FREE Stampin' Up! products of your choice !
Having a Big Shot is the best investment I ever made...this is a great value...don't delay!  Give me a shout to check out all the perks of being a Demo! I hope this will help some of you take another look at the opportunity. Remember, you don’t have to do workshops unless you want to—and purchasing the Starter Kit does not mean you are obligated to EVER place another order or hold and event unless you want to. Many ladies are purely in it for their own discount and the fun of having a night with friends now and again—I started out like that, too!  Stampin’ Up can be whatever YOU want it to be.
