Thanks Thanks Thanks Mystery Shoppers

Thank you

THANKS THANKS THANKS – I have some secret buyers on my Stampin Up online store.

They are like little angels that come out at night time and order from me but leave no trace of who they are – by selecting no contact on the ordering system.

I find this sad when I get a notification that I have had an online order but not able to send them a Thank you Card

If this has been you in the past please drop me an email and I will get that thank you card on the way to you.

Sketch Challenge

One of the toughest things for me is working out what to make and how I am going to get it to all together. Do you have this problem too?

I came across this card sketch on a fellow Australian demonstrators website and knew exactly what I was going to make.

I took the chance to try out some of my new goodies from the pre order and used the Cozy Christmas Stamp Set (Item No 139776) for this first card

The Second card used the same colors but I just changed the sentiment for one from Jolly Christmas (Item No 139876)

What makes a memory?

treasure-memoriesRemember the last time you were given a handmade card? It may have been for your birthday or a thank you for doing something nice for someone else, or just because you are you. This is what makes me smile and is one of the great things in being a creative person. These cards that have been made with love and thoughts about the person while they were being made are Memory Creations. This is part of my passion with Stampin Up Creating cards that will become memories. What cards get kept? Do you have a collection of these special cards??
