I don't want to spoil the fun for some of you that have not received your paper pumpkin kit. However, I wanted to quickly jump on the gun and post this alternate idea for some of my customers that I know are not big fans of Halloween. This is an alternate idea that you can have lots of fun with! Just hold on to that kit til Christmas and you have an AWESOME gift idea to wrap up in clear cellophane!!! There are some other ideas for this month's kit that I will be posting later!! Keep your eyes peeled!!

Hello Everyone! I'm here to post a new adventure for me!! I've decided to give it a whirl as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I am very excited for this new chapter. The thing I love the most about this is that I will get the chance to facilitate the art of card making. Through this, people will get the opportunity to unplug from the chaos of life and connect with each other. In this day of technology and disconnect from society, I hope to see two things unfold: 1.) A sense of shared interest that brings community with laughter and relaxation at the center. 2.) A chance to create handmade cards that will have handwritten messages sent to loved ones. I think everyone can agree that we could all use a little more of both!
Watch this blog for weekly card inspiration. I plan to get a post out soon to give a sneak peek at some of the cards we will make at my first upcoming workshop. For more information about the workshop, click the Stampin' Up! logo on the right side of this blog. You can also check out the links if you are interested in hosting a workshop, or shopping with me at Stampin' Up! I'd love to help you any way I can. But most of all, I hope to see you at one of my future workshops!
I am posting this card that I made a couple of weeks ago. I entered it into the ODBD challenge. Since then, I updated it by adding some bling and then I dressed up an envelope to go with it. So I decided to link it up to the Friends With Flair Friday challenge over at Unity Stamp Co.
I made this card as a farewell card to my niece and her family. They moved to the Kansas City area two years ago after they got married. We have had fun growing even closer, but his job has moved them to Denver. They found out about the move on the first day of Fall. I told Krista that was ironic because this means that they will literally start a new season in their lives. They only had a month to pack up and leave and we said our tearful good byes on Wednesday evening this week. The sentiment and the images are well suited for this card and envelope because of the situation. When she opened it, she cried. Then I followed.
I will miss all of them soo much. Krista has been so instrumental in helping me on my weight loss journey since April of this year. I have lost 50 lbs. and she has been incredibly supportive. She stepped up to the plate immediately when I told her that my doctor told me that I needed to lose the weight and exercise due to health issues. She is a gem and I have had a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I don't have my exercise buddy anymore! But I know that she is on to better things and it makes me happy for her and her family!! Plus we now get to visit them in such a beautiful setting-MUCH better than Kansas for sure!!!!
I love fall. I couldn't resist this challenge. I am linking it up over at Our Daily Bread Designs where the challenge is Fall Leaves.
I added this picture after I posted the original. I noticed that my leaves fell over in the first picture. That's what I get for procrastinating and being in such a hurry to get this posted before the deadline.
