Yes, it is official…I have countless thank you cards to make!!! You know the saying about long journeys. Something about starting with a single step, I think. Here is the first of many cards for the overwhelming generosity of my family this Christmas. Of course, I HAD to use my new Vintage Vogue stamp set. It is available in the new Stampin’ Up Occasions mini which just went active yesterday. I am ready for my first order and I can’t wait to share all the cool stuff this mini has to offer! As if is wasn’t enough to have all those lovely ribbons, brads, designer papers, stamps (did I mention SATIN ribbon??!!) to choose from, Sale-a-bration (SAB) has started too! Wonderful free stamp sets, a punch and even catalog sets to choose from…WOW!! You should have your Occasions mini and your Sale-a-bration flyer by now. I am starting to schedule classes for SAB now so let me know if you want to take advantage and earn even more free stuff by being a hostess! Ok, on to the card…
All of you who know me know that I have a ribbon problem. Yes, my name is Jennifer and I am a ribbon-a-holic! It seems that I also have a problem with hoarding Stampin’ Up’s lovely designer papers. I have made it one of my stamping resolutions to actually USE this paper and ribbon (crazy, I know). So while the stamp set is new, the papers and ribbons are retired. Please don’t hold it against me, I just have to make room for my wonderful Occasions mini order!
