SU! SALEABRATION GRATITUDE - YOU BRIGHTEN MY DAY

I am thrilled that we are in the middle of SU! SALEABRATION.  It's the Happiest Time of the SU! year because there are FREE SU! products to EARN.  The YOU BRIGHTEN MY DAY is an awesome set.  It coordinates with several of the SU! punches and it's a happy set to own.  As with the other SU! products you can EARN for FREE, this one should be at the top of your list.  Here I created some cards using the gratitude/thanks stamp and coordinating punch and the coordinating DSP (YOU BRIGHTEN MY DAY) and ribbon -  which you can also earn for FREE!
Inside the card the message is YOU MADE MY DAY and the little pinwheels are from the SALEABRATION stamp set BEST DAY EVER - which you can also EARN FOR FREE!

This paper is so beautiful. You will absolutely love all of it and as with all SU! products, it coordinates with all of our fabulous SU! papers, embellishments, inks, and more.

EVERYDAY LIFE TAKES ME SOUTH

I had a great opportunity for work to head south to Orlando for a full week.  It was great to leave the snow and ice behind in Maryland and the single digit temps! Believe it or not there were two days of temps in the 30's in Florida but mostly 70's to 80's and enough sun to get a dose of Vitamin D.

BUTTERFLY BASICS HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MOM AND MY SISTER CELENA

Today is my mother's birthday. It's also my sister Celena's birthday.  My youngest sibling was born on my mother's birthday.  Poor Mom was in labor on her day, but she was so glad to deliver Celena. 


For my mother's card, I used a variety of SU! stamp sets including the SU! OCCASIONS stamp set BUTTERFLY BASICS (envelope).  I must confess, it's my favorite stamp set in the catalog and I love creating with it.
I also stamped the inside and the base card stock is embossed with the HAPPY HEARTS EMBOSSING FOLDER.  I also stamp my envelopes.
This card also uses the LOTUS BLOSSOM stamp set that I earned for FREE during SALEABRATION and also the coordinating THINLETS HELLO YOU and STAMP SET CRAZY ABOUT YOU.  


Happy Birthday to the BEST MOM and to my awesome sis CELENA.

BIG ON YOU! SU! AWESOME STAMP SET

The BIG ON YOU stamp set by SU! from the OCCASIONS CATALOG is AWESOME.  I didn't realize how cool it really was until we created this card at my upline Janet Wakeland's home a few weeks ago.
We embossed the sentiment on vellum cardstock using versamark ink and GOLD embossing powder from SU! The vellum is so cool and the cardstock type has a really nice weight.  The heart is punched using the SU! sweetheart punch and attached with one of the new gold clips.
 You can see through the vellum to see that underneath is the HAPPY HEARTS embossed card stock.  I think I've shared that it's my new favorite embossing folder by SU!

CHECK OUT CAROLYN'S CREATIVE BLOGPOSTS

My dear friend Carolyn Serviss has posted for the CREATIVE CREW blog Tour.  Check out her amazing big and video today. Blendabilities rocked her world as they did mine!

USING THE NEW CHALKBOARD CARDSTOCK AND CHALKBOARD INK FROM SU!

Several weeks ago I was at my upline Janet Wakeland's home and she showed us how easy it is to create with the SU! CHALKBOARD PAPER and the NEW CHALKBOARD stamp INKS.  Here's the lovely card we made.  It certainly looks like chalk and dries quickly and what a nice effect.  CHALKBOARD creations are the "in" thing right now in crafting.


The twine and the buttons are NEW and are in the SU! OCCASIONS CATALOG. 

The paper is DSP from SALEABRATION.

HELLO LIFE! GREAT SU! STAMP SET AND DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

Ok, I'll admit that I purchased this stamp set HELLO LIFE mainly for the sentiment DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!  I just love this sentiment and I really feel it's a sentiment we have to try to do more of.  Now...when you do more of the things that make you happy make sure that you include helping others especially those less fortunate - which includes the poor, children, the elderly, the sick, the animals.  My gosh this could go on and on!


I cased this card a bit and I can't remember who was the originator.  I changed a few things and then presented this card as one of the cards we made at my friend Pat Nuckels' home for a fun SU! gathering in January.  Everyone had plenty of time to give this card for Valentine's day if they wanted, or just to save it for another special occasion.


Hello Life Photopolymer Stamp Set 137136
