Today I’m sharing a marbled Hello Friend card made with Berry Burst ink.
This card is so simple to create yet delivers a WOW! I’m still having so much fun using Stampin’ Up!’s 2017-2019 In Colors. Have you picked a favorite yet?

Speaking of cards, I’m expecting some fun postcards from Thailand in my mailbox soon! Several of my demonstrator friends are either there or enroute for the annual Incentive Trip. I qualified for this trip but due to the extremely long flight and my hubby’s back issues, we had to pass on this one. I know everyone will have a fabulous time. Stampin’ Up! always spoils on these trips!
Stamp Slave Dave and I have already qualified for the 2018 trip to Alaska; we can’t wait to cruise the Inside Passage and see the sights above! We went on the 2011 trip to Alaska and that has been the one we’ve enjoyed most out of all the trips we’ve been blessed to achieve.
Incentive trips, lifetime friendships, product pre-orders, income, free stamps, creative conferences…do any of these make your ears perk up? If so, you might find this is the perfect time to start your own Stampin’ Up! business and get this new Carols of Christmas stamp set for free!
That’s right, for only $99 plus tax (and you pay zip, zero, nada for shipping!) you get to choose $125 of any products in our catalog. During the month of July, you also receive the following stamping essentials kit:
|118485||D Block – you get 2 of these, one to keep and one to share with a friend!|
I honestly don’t know of another business opportunity where only $99 gets you started. Just like Santa on Christmas Eve, this promotion will disappear on August 1st so don’t miss it! If you have any questions, please do give me a shout.
