Today is my Stampin’ Up! Anniversary!  I was officially a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator on Feb. 3rd, 2006.  I have completed 5 years and I have loved every minute.  I also just passed my blog-a-versary (is there such a word?) – I started my blog Jan. 20th, 2009 – two years of blogging!  I had a couple of things planned for my Stampin’ Up! Anniversary but I think I need something for my blog-a-versary too – don’t you?  What should it be?  Let me think on that while I tell you about what else I have planned this month.

Oh but first here is the card that I used as my Make&Take project for my first ever workshop!

I can’t believe I found the pictures but I actually had a folder called February 2006 and there it was.  Along with two or three other projects.  Now lets move on to February 2011 – here is what I have going on…..

First I am planning a SAMPLE SALE all month long.  I’ll be cleaning out all my samples that I have made and collected for the last five years. So when you come to my house this month you can shop the sample sale – there will be cards, card fronts, 3-Ds and gifts.  I may even have some class kits – with all the consumables cut and you can finish how you want.

Second – how about some Bingo?  For the month of February you will earn a Bingo card for every $50 your order from me and in March we will play Bingo to win prizes. You’ll want to check my blog (or sign up for daily updates) so that you can see the Bingo pieces that get called.  I’ll send out more details and instructions at the end of February along with your earned Bingo cards.

Check out my February Ribbon Share – that includes Free ribbon and buttons from the Sale-A-Bration Ice Cream Parlor pack.

Well let’s get back to my Blog-a-versary – I think it would be appropriate to give away some Blog Candy. I’ll be giving away the stamp set Thank You Kindly to one lucky blog visitor – my way to say Thank You for supporting my blog.  To enter into the drawing for my Blog-a-versary Blog Candy please leave a comment on this post between now and Wednesday, February 9th – midnight EST.  I will draw a winner and post it on my blog after the 10th.
