A Salute to Benjamin

You're Awesome Card


Hello Friend,

Have to love all the great big greetings from the Great Big Greeting Stamp set.    The fun striped background is the Brushstrokes Background stamp.  I did have a very special reason for making today's card.



We're so proud of our son, Benjamin!

 On 14 June 2017, he Marechaussee Award was also given to MAJ Benjamin Feicht and MSG Harold Anderson. The Marechaussee Award is given to Soldiers who show exceptional dedication, competence, and contibution to the Military Police Corps. Good job Peacekeepers and keep up the good work!

Birthday Delivery

Birthday Delivery Poodle

Hello Friend,

The Birthday Delivery Bundle is clearly a fabulous choice for birthday, but what about other occasions.  Let's do something a little different.  The happy poodle with her head held high was a nature choice for an "It's Your Big Day" Card. 

Birthday Friends dies

The cool thing about the Birthday Memories Designer Paper, besides all the fun designs, is that the Birthday Friends dies will cut image from the paper.  What neat idea! 

Birthday Delivery and Wood Words

Today's card actually pairs two dynamite bundles-Birthday Delivery and Wood Words.  The black and white paper in the background is Pick a Pattern.  This is my first time to use the new Mini Dimensionals to pop up an image on a card.   All I can say is "they rock"!  They fit neatly under her balls of fur on her legs and tail and they are super sticky.

Sneak Peek Wood Words


Wood Words Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

One thing about living in the country,  the sound of a rooster crowing to welcome another new day is not uncommon.  I heard one crowing this morning and my new Wood Words stamp set began calling my name.  It was time to play!   Have you seen the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog?   It Rocks!  If you have purchased from me in the past year, you should have it in your hands.   If you don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and need a catalog, please contact me and let me know so I can send you one! 

If you have your catalog handy, turn to page 159.  Love the roughed up look of the farm images in the Wood Words stamp set.  For today's Something to Crow About Card I used the Rooster and the Circle stamps.

Stampin' Up! Copper Trim

While you are page 159, check out the Copper Trim.  Seriously, this is way too fun.  Pull it apart to make a copper mesh or leave it as it is and use a copper trim.  Either way, you win.

Something to Crow About

I did have a little help from two other stamp sets to complete my card.  The Kinda Eclectic stamp set is on the Retiring List, so there's only a few days left to scoop up this stamp set.  The sun makes a great backdrop for the snappy rooster.  And on page 180 of the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog you'll find the versatile Labeler Alphabet stamp set.  The cool thing about this stamp set is that you can say whatever you want.

  Fusion Card ChallengeThanks to Fusion for today's Card Sketch and Photo inspiration.  You can use just the sketch or use just the photo.  I chose to fuse them together and use both.

Just a Heads Up, the demand by demonstrators during the Pre-order of the stunning new Glitter Dots and the Copper Trim was over the top.  Which means that we are in a backorder situation. Sadly, the option to order these products has been pushed back from June 1 to the week of July 24.  Stampin’ Up! has reached out to manufacturers and to trying get them sooner.  Hopefully their hard work will payoff.  I’ll keep you posted. 


Have a fabulous day,
