Getting Back In the Saddle

For the past month or so I have been out of commission due to the death of my husband.  I have not had the desire to craft during this time but now I feel that I must force myself forward.  During this unbelievable month my mother-in-law and my father-in-law have been there to ensure that my sons and I survived this blow to our family structure.  That being said, my mother-in-laws birthday is coming up and I need to begin thinking of an awesome card to show her how much I truly appreciate all that she has done for me and continues to do for me.

The card pictured above may be one I duplicate for her.  I know her favorite color is yellow so I would have to come up with a suitable background paper.  Stampin Up! has awesome designer series paper but I really like the paper used on this card and I wonder if I can duplicate it with different colors.  If I cannot then I will have to use this paper which is no longer available to purchase.

Today is the second day of purchasing from the new 2018 -2019 catalog and of course I had to pick up a few stamp sets and some inks.  The stamp sets I purchased:  Dream Catcher Bundle (includes dies), Dandelion Wishes, Seize the Day, Country Road, Sheet Music, Enjoy Life, Swirly Frames, and Peaceful Journey.

So, if I change my mind about using the Climbing Orchid stamp set I should have plenty to chose from.  Take a look around in the new catalog and see if there is a stamp set you would like to see demoed.

Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.
