I created a tri-fold card for my design team entry this week.  Thought it was a fun play on the balloons from Up.  This card could be fun to give to someone as a congratulations card  or how about to someone that travels frequently?  Send them well wishes as they fly, up … up … and away!

Congratulations Butterfly

A clean & simple (or kwik & kool as I like to call it) congratulations card I made using a few of the single stamps, Butterfly Accent and Fine Flourish.  I also used the Well Scripted stamp set.

All three stamp sets are currently not available for purchase, but I'm crossing my fingers that they will appear in the 2010 – 2011 Idea Book & Catalog (released July 1, 2010).

I did use one of the old In Colors, Pacific Point, that will make it's return in the new catalog.  I am very excited about the "comeback"!!


The colors on the chart below will be carrying
over to the new catalog.

Due to high demand
… many of your favorite colors
in the Fond
Farewell Collection
are already going on back order. 

What will happen with my
favorite colors if they go on back order?

Ink Pads & Reinkers:  Orders will
be filled through May to the best of Stampin' Up!'s ability and while
available through June.

Orders will be substituted with textured, when smooth
is no longer available in your favorite color.  This includes both 8
1/2" x 11" and 12" x 12" paper.  You will not be charged extra for the
textured paper replacement (should smooth not be available).

to stock up on your
favorite colors before they are gone!
you'd like to check on back ordered colors before you place your order.

26 years and counting!

Dad You Rock

Yesterday afternoon, I made this clean and simple (kwik & kool) card for my Dad.

He is celebrating 26 years of sobriety!  I like to take time every year to recognize this accomplishment.  Here's the card that I made for his 25th year.


So, congratulations Dad on another year of sobriety.  We love you!

Here's where I get a little mushy … it's amazing how much things can change over time.  My Dad has been called up for active duty and will be headed to Iraq in January 2010.  While this is not new "news", I reflected on his pending departure today.

We see my Dad about once a week, and coming up very soon we'll be without him.  His duty should only last 9 months, but one never knows when it comes to the military.

I'm cutting this post short today.  I wanted to share my card and my celebration of my Dad.  However, I have a lot on my plate personally and emotionally right now … so I hope you've enjoyed seeing my creation today.
