Mailable Monday - Secret Santa

Hi stampers...ok, I have a secret Santa of sorts.....someone from SU must have read my recent post about me being a space cadet and losing my mini and catalog on the plane on the way home from vacation because when I came home for lunch on Wednesday there was a big package sticking out of the mailbox....

Hmmmm I thought....what did I order?  Then I remembered I ordered a couple of CUTE maxi dresses from a cute online boutique (I hope they fit) but they were coming UPS and not through the mail...hmmm ok, what else?  I couldn't recall ordering any stamp stuff...but I won't tell you how many times I've ordered and forgot, lol!  So, when I got it out of the mailbox I saw it WAS from SU and not an order but directly from SU.  Then I got a little nervous because I thought hmmmm...maybe this is how they are notifying the Artisan finalists, eek!  I doubted it but I couldn't imagine what it could be.  So once I finally opened it (of course I couldn't get it open and couldn't find any tools to help, lol) I found the SWEETEST thing inside.

Someone from the home office must have seen my post about what a goof I was on vacation where I lost a bunch of stuff including my coveted mini catalog (or seasonal catalog...I need to figure out what exactly we are calling it now, lol) and they sent me a new one PLUS a new regular catalog, Spanish catalog, and the magazine that came with the mini!  THIS, right here is why I LOVE Stampin' Up!  So, to my "Secret Santa" THANK YOU!  The past month or so has been pretty rough for a number of reasons so it was so nice to get a little pick me up!  This card is for YOU!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Lots of thanks, really good greetings, sweet essentials (I think I used a retired one too but can't remember now and I'm not in my craft room....)
Paper:  Whisper white, coastal cabana
Ink:  Coastal cabana, crisp cantaloupe, strawberry slush
Accessories:  None :-)

I saw a card like this with a different theme on Pinterest and thought I'd like to make my own.  You could make this for any occasion...or you can if you're a hoarder of greetings like I am....).

And again, thanks to whoever sent me the catalogs!

Happy stamping!

  7. I love it when someone goes out of their way to something nice. They didn't want any credit, just wanted to a smile on someone's face. What if we all did that regularly. Wouldn't the world be a happier, kinder place.

    Now to the card you made. I love it. All those bright thank yous stamped along the edge. It's perfect. I hope your secret person sees it. :)


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
