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!
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!
