Christmas and Birthday card by Stampin Up and me

Good Monday to you dear Stampers,
I hope you had a beautiful weekend!  We sure did here in Calgary. 

This morning I wanted to create another card for the Card Buffet that is coming up on Nov. the 4th.
12 of the sweetest ladies have already reserved their spots and spaces are filling up quickly, so if you would like to come, please let me know and I can prep the cards and tags for you as well.
We would all love to connect with you and create with you.
For $30, you will be able to create about 15 beautiful cards. And with an order of $60 on that day, your price of creating the cards will be only $20.

Isn't this a wonderful clean and simple card? The options are endless. I will have many different strips of beautiful Designer Series Paper ready for you to put together
and glue to a piece of card stock.
This morning I visited the Our Creative Corner Challenge site. Their theme of this week is:  'Clean and simple Kitchen. They encouraged us to create something that is seen in the kitchen. Well what about some yummy cupcakes? They are always a hit in our kitchen.

After adhering it to your card stock,
you can grab a Stampin Up punch and snap it through the layers.
When your heart is full, you often want to show it. Punches are a quick and easy way to add interest, dimension, and color to your cards, tags, and scrapbook pages. You can glue punched shapes directly onto your projects or layer a sheet of card stock that has been punched over a coordinating card stock for a reverse effect. The Full Heart punch is a classic heart shape you'll love for years to come.

■ Add interest to scrapbook pages and cards
■ Has an easy-to-use thumb lever

Here is a Christmas theme version of this card!
 I so love the bright Real Red colour that Stampin Up offers.
I used the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #57 that LeAnne created for us, for these cards. Simple and elegant. Love it! She has a talent for creating beautiful and elegant cards. And her comments always make me smile. She is such a sweet heart. And I only know her from her blog and from the little notes she ads to my blog. They are so genuine and encouraging. Please visit her blog at: http://weeinklings.blogspot.ca and send her some love! You will be blessed by all the beauty on her blog. She really shares from her heart!

Both the  punches (the star and heart) are now retired.
But the good news is: Stampin Up just restocked their clearance rack and guess who showed up there for a way better price.....
(#113693 - $13.79)
& With the clearance rack you never know when things are sold out, so if were planning on purchasing this beauty.. please click on the link above to visit my Stampin Up online store.

I love little cute things on my cards.
Here you see a tiny little tag, that I punched out with my Stampin Up Jewelry Tag punch.

Well, time is flying by again. I better get some vacuum cleaning done in this house..
I would love to hear from you.
Inky hugs, Pauline
