Mike's 38th Birthday cake

Today Mike had class (he is 2 semesters away from earning his Masters in Administration)on his birthday. He said he wanted a yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Little did he know that I am so dang crafty that I MADE from scratch the Pittsburgh Steelers logo to go on top. He will be surprised. Now I know that I can't frost a cake to save my life, but I think I did pretty good with the paper part of this I just need to get his Iowa Hawkeye card finished and we're good.

$50,000 Career Sales Goal!

It was this morning that I hit my $50,000 career sales goal that I had been working on for 5 years now! I wanted to share this with you because without you, I would have never dreamed of it. I can't thank you enough for your loyalty and for helping me achieve this. When I signed up to be demonstrator 5 years ago, I simply did it to get the discount to "support my habit", but eventually adding in classes and camps, and meeting many more people than I ever imagined (in whom I cherish every one of you!) I was able to make a small "business" out of it.
With God's grace and blessings, I hope to go another 5 years and hope that you will all follow. Like I said, without you, demos like me, don't make it in the "corporate" world. LOL!
Thanks to all of you again-love you all,
God Bless!

Box Card-A Little Somethin' preview set

One of the great things about being a demo is getting to preorder sneak peaks for the upcoming catalogs. This one is a Level 2 hostess set and new Designer Series Paper- Raspberry Tart coming in the Spring/Summer book.

This is a card with a box attached to the front of it for "gift" giving. This is going to be someone's birthday gift coming up shortly.

Always Valentine Card

I tend to overlook this stamp set on my shelf but I wanted to go outside the box and give it non traditional Valentine colors. Now don't get me wrong, RED is my favorite color, but just was looking for a different color combo.

Okay, ONE more Just Buzzin' By card

I promise, I will post some other cards but I just LOVE this set. Reminds me that spring is not that far off..............................

Just Buzzin' By-Faux Belly Band

I created this card using a gate fold and made it look like it had a belly band to hold it shut while closed, but it actually is just a strip of paper across the front.
