Challenges, First Communion, and more good news...Oh My....

Hi Stampers,

Happy Monday!  We had a busy weekend here with Maya's First Communion.  It was a great day spent with family.  I will share a couple pictures at the end of this post.

Yesterday we had a very low key day so I was finally able to get into my craft room.  I had seen two challenges that I wanted to try out so I decided that my card today would be fitting for retro sketches and The Friday Mashup!

retro sketches #60 by Deanna

Tara's picking the colors...

The challenge for Friday Mashup is to create a color using Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum, and Wisteria Wonder.  And deliver or  mail it to someone special - that's the easy part.  This is my card I created for retro sketches and The Friday Mashup Challenges.  Stamp Set of the Month Club members - remember this is our stamp set for May - SUPER CUTE!!!

Stampin’ Up! products used:
Card Stock: Whisper White Card Stock, Sahara Sand Card Stock, Wisteria Wonder Card Stock
Designer Series Paper:  Subtles Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks Perfect Plum
Ink:  Perfect Plum Classic Stampin' Pad, Sahara Sand Classic Stampin' Pad, Wisteria Wonder Classic Stampin' Pad
Stamp Set: By the Tide
Embelishment:  Wisteria Wonder 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon
Tools:  2 1/2" Circle Punch, 3/16" Corner Punch

Here are a couple of pictures of Maya during her First Communion and then with both the girls after the ceremony.

Don't forget that the retired list comes out on Wednesday and the new catalog comes out on May 31st.  As a demonstrator I had the opportunity to view the new catalog past weekend.  The reason for the early viewing was due a Book-A-Thon Stampin' Up had and I was able to meet the goal and earn the opportunity for the early viewing.  The new catalog and amazing and Stampin' Up has out down themselves once again.  I can't wait to be able to share it with you on May 31st.

Also some more exciting news for me.  Over the weekend I had another recruit join my team.  Congrats to Christine for taking advantage of the current Stampin' Up promotion.  It's such a good promotion to pass up.  She paid $99 for her Starter Kit but received $155 in Stampin' Up product.  CONGRATS and thank you for choosing me Christine! 

Contact me today if you would like to chat more about becoming a demonstrator  Looking forward to hearing from you :)

Thanks for stopping by!
