I'm REALLY going!!!!

OK, I have to share this because I'm bursting.  As most of you know, I earned the Alaskan Cruise last year through my Stampin' Up! business.  And to say the least its been surreal.  I've been a demo for 10 years and its my first one.
Well on Friday, I had my Techniques University and after all had almost left my hubby, Edwin says "oh here's a package, we have a new UPS man and he left it at the garage."  Well I didn't think a whole lot about it at first since I have a few Four Frames backordered and figured it was those. 
But when I looked at the package I realized it wasn't the standard SU! issue.
Well looky lou at what was in it!  Our cruise tickets and this groovy document holder with luggage tags and this really cool book that has all that will be going on and where you can journal your days!
OH MY GOSH!!!  I'm REALLY going!!!

THANK YOU to all my wonderful customers and friends who made this possible.  When at the last minute they stepped up to the plate and ordered that last amount of money I needed! 
We will be taking our daughter, Sage on this as well and it will be a vacation of a lifetime for us NO doubt!
Thank you, Thank you!!  You guys are the best!

OK, thank you for letting me go on!  And just because I don't want you to think I don't care....Here's a card we did on Saturday at my stamp a stack using the Four Frames stamp set that will be in the new Idea Book and Catalog come July.  I just LOVE it!

I CASED my class from my cyber friend Kristine Burns, who will also be joining me on the cruise!  The base of this card is River Rock, with the florish from Baroque Motifs being stamped in Versamark.  The Designer Paper is also new DSP from the upcoming Catalog called Paisley Prints.  Just big beautiful flowers in it.

Thanks for stopping by! Email me at if you have any questions!
