Lemonade anyone?

One of our new suites in the catalog is the Coffee Break Suite.  It’s popular among coffee drinkers – which I am not.  But I did get this set as I know everyone is going to love it.  But it’s not limited to coffee drinks.  How about a glass of Lemonade?


I stamped the cut portion on watercolor paper and watercolored in with Daffodil Delight ink to make Lemonade.  The set has ice cubes – there is also a straw which I should have added to but I already had the card together by the time I thought of that.

The embossed background is the new Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder.  I also used some new ribbon – Bermuda Bay 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon.

I made these as a swap card for my June Team Meeting.  Did you know we have an amazing opportunity this month?  You can join my team by purchasing the $99 Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit.  And do you know what all you get?

Happy Anniversary!

Today is my 10 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up!  I can’t believe it has been 10 years since I bought my starter kit.  I have met tons of dear friends from all over the world!  Not one time did I ever think why did I do this.  Most of the time I think why didn’t I do it sooner!  I had been stamping about 10 years before i ever considered joining.

I decided to go back through my photos and see if I could find something I made when I first started.  I found a photo from a Hands-On class in April 2006.  We made these little candles and a matching card.  It used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and guess what it is still in our catalog today!
