Stamping With The Inketts

Yesterday was our monthly get together with the NY Inketts, one of the wonderful teams I am fortunate to be a part of, since I am in Deb Valder’s downline, I get to attend her monthly team meetings. She brought tons of new products for us to see and touch and had over 25 prizes from the all new preorder new catalog items, there were some very happy ladies yesterday! I won one raffle and picked a new ink pad… one of the new in colors, can’t wait to play with it!

The Make and Takes were just awesome- so much time, work, effort went into preparing these card packets so all we had to do was stamp and assemble. What a line up- I have been admiring the wedding cake card on Pinterest, so thanks to Marie and Arlea for prepping that card for us! The Owl card was prepared by Ann and Robin, the Tulips bouquet card was a M&T by Janet (I know she had a partner but I forgot who it was, sorry), and the gorgeous Daffodil Card was brought to us by Pam and Regina. Great job ladies, these “punch art” cards were just over the top awesome!


Here is the Owl Card done two different ways, what do you think? Do you need a graduation card this year? Or just know someone who LOVES Owls (besides me that is??)???


Well, today’s post is short and sweet, hope you like these cards- and as always- I LOVE reading your comments, and it helps my blog show up on goggle search engine if I have comments, so you’re actually helping me out by leaving a comment.

Also- did you know that more items have been added to the Clearance Rack? Also the Retired List has been a surprising hit- at least with shoppers, some items are selling out. If there was something you needed, check out the retired list in my online store and hurry to order what you need or want.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! Have a great day! (Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo? have fun!)

Stamping Sisters are Amazing!



Have you ever had a moment when you are truly surprised, and overwhelmed, and feel more blessed than you think you deserve?? These moments are very rare for me (the surprise part)… I feel blessed every day to have such amazing and loving family and friends and am especially thankful for all the new friends I have made in the years that I have been stamping. Becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator was at first a “scary” decision, but my only regret was not signing up years earlier! Who knew that I would be blessed by knowing such generous, amazing people!

So, unbeknownst to me, several of my downline, my upline, and my sidelines (who I have been helping with their blogs), they decided to create a one of a kind card- it is so much more than a card- it is a work of love and art- and I will treasure it always… Karyn Morrison organized the group with directions and pieces that they completed by mail, as one of my downline was in Florida for the winter (hi Judy) and another was on the road with her hubby and their trucking business (hi Kim), and they all chipped in and gifted me not only with this beautiful card, but also two very generous gift cards that I am going to enjoy using at convention this summer. I am still blown away that you ladies did this for me, and that Karyn hand delivered it to me on Wednesday, so that April- my 50th birth-month, was truly complete. (Yes, that is the cafeteria at Schenectady County Community College- Karyn met me after work, before my part time job- teaching at SCCC).



Karyn even made a special box (thank you envelope punch board!)

The theme of the card was the 2013-15 In Colors and Owl Builder punch by Stampin’ Up!


Each segment is so unique and sweet and special and amazing, just like the ladies who created them!




I cannot thank you enough Karyn, Dania, Jamie, Kim, Judy, Amye, Jan, and Pam!! You are so talented, generous and I love you all!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Well, I have more to blog about- it was a busy busy weekend, but I’m saving more for tomorrow, so come back and visit me, okay? Leave a comment, would you? I love hearing from my readers! What did you work on this weekend?

Have a great day!
