Stampin’ Up!s biggest promotion of the year – Sale-A-Bration – is nearing the end!  Don’t miss out on a chance to get free product – exclusive Sale-A-Bration items or select items from the regular catalog.  Yes – did you know you can select from some regular catalog product too – including the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate!  Sale-A-Bration ends on March 22nd.  And here is a special offer for you – if you’d like the chance to earn free hostess dollars too – then place an order online through my website by March 21st using the Hostess Code XR62ZECB.  I’ll draw for the hostess rewards from everyone that orders – that’s 3 people ordering $50 each – then you each get a free Sale-A-Bration item and a chance to win the Hostess benefits.

Here is a card using the Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set – it’s one of the Sale-A-Bration exclusive sets and has a gorgeous font on the phrases plus flowers and a hummingbird in the set.


It’s a Peek-a-boo style card and I got this idea from Dawn Olchefske.

Thanks Dawn for this beautiful card idea.  I pretty much used her card exactly.  No need to change something that was so pretty to begin with.

And more bird news – Egg #2 has arrived today –


It’s pretty amazing.  This picture isn’t that great – it is with my iPhone and it was starting to rain when I snuck out to take a peek.  I checked earlier before the rain but no second egg – so this picture was taken within 3 or so hours of when she laid it.   Tomorrow I’ll see if there is another one – it should be one a day until she is done – usually with 4 or 5.

You may also want to follow my on Facebook – Stampin’ Up! has lots of specials and news coming out each week and I can get it out faster on my FB page than here on my blog – plus you may see some projects and other things on there that I’m not posting here.  I tried to add a link plus you can go to the right side-bar on my my blog and like my page then be sure to add it to your news feed so you can see as soon as something is updated.  This morning a big My Digital Studio announcement – what was MDS2+ is now going to be MDS and will be $19.95 – now there is no reason to keep putting off getting this product.  Read more about it on (you can get there through my FB page too).

Thanks for stopping by today!
