Artisan Wednesday Wow- The Finale

Oh boy what an emotional day! I can't believe that this is it...it has been a wonderful journey and one I will never ever forget. This Team is seriously phenomenal! Amazing amazing women & great friends! We have had one heck of a year! Not only have I been continually inspired by their talented but my heart has been forever touched by their kindness & friendship. LOVE YOU ALL! #ADT2013
Well I'm sure you didn't come just to hear my sappy comments so how about some eye candy... 

I created this box for my BFF Lynda Lee! Since we room together I love to give her nightly pillow gifts when we go to Stampin Up events so this was the gift on the last night. I put some yummy caramels inside but really the box WAS the gift! Lol! But after trying to figure out how I was going to transport this little beauty to Salt Lake City with out the sentiment being crushed I realized it was smarter to move it over so it wasn't hanging off the side of the box quiet so much-
 It made it there in perfect shape! Yay!
My next project is the card I made for the ADT swap & it truly represents how I feel. Waaahh! I Miss Them Already!
Sigh...Well on a VERY HAPPY note I have teamed up with Alanna & Connie to bring you lots more creative inspiration & beautiful projects that you can create with us every month! If you didn't see the announcement you can Click Here! It's like Creativity, Delivered!
And MORE Good News- We will all be continuing a monthly blog hop called "Fancy Friday" on the last Friday of the month starting in August!
Ok time to visit my dear friend Alanna Wharf & hopefully her post won't make me break out the tissue...

Artisan Wednesday Wow

 Guess time really does fly when you're having fun because we are down  to our final 2 weeks of ADT 2013 blog hops! Eek! I know many of you attended Convention & may know the exciting news, Becky, Cindy, & I will continue on to the 2014 team! What?! Crazy Awesome, right?!
Anyway I will share more about that later but for now lets talk about the Amazing Birthday stamp set-
item#134225 w/ 134228 c
Many of you received it at Convention & we got it in our ADT boxes too so just in case you need a couple more fun ideas...

My brother in laws birthday is coming up next week so having a cute "guy style" cake topper might come in handy. Lol! But I also love how this set can be spun to fit a girly girl too!
This card was so simple I even had time to do a quick bit of sewing & still be finished in under 10 minutes. Love that! Of course a matching envelope is always fancy too.
Speaking of Fancy...its time to hop on over & see what Alanna Wharf has to share with you today!

Its Gonna Be Fancy!

Holy cow Convention 2014 was so much fun! I have LOTS of fun to share but this will just be a quick post to give you a sneak peek at a card kit that will be available in the new Holiday Catalog!

We had the opportunity to get our hands on this amazing kit called Watercolor Winter & let me just say we will be sending some fancy Christmas cards this year! This is by far THE best Simply Created Kit Stampin Up has EVER offered! There was a fun contest to be a little creative with the kit & who ever gets the most likes on Pinterest wins some free products! Whoop Whoop! I hope you check out the pinterest page  & like your favorites, hopefully mine is one of them! Lol! Anyway this kit comes with these amazing die cut glitter phrase! Squeal!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok I must contain my excitement...sooo since they provide these beauties in 4 different languages which sadly I don't speak-I took one of these die cuts & snipped a few of the letters to create my Jesus card.

 We only had what was provided in the class to work with so I whipped this up in hopes of entering the contest. Simple but to the point of what Christmas is all about for our family. Thank you for stopping by & please come back soon as I have Big News & lots to share!

Artisan Wednesday Wow- Little Letters

Welcome to the 2013 Artisan Design Teams very last month of blog hops...my eyes are tearing up as I write this. It has been an amazing amazing year & I am so grateful to have had this opportunity!
 Ok I better move on before I bust out in full blown water works...lets talk New Big Shot Toys!
If you're like me it is one of the first things I can't wait to see when I crack the pages of the new catalog & I was super happy with this years collection. On the tip top of my wish list were the Little Letters dies so when they were included in our boxes this month I almost did a back flip...well not really because I would have ended up in the E.R. but you know what I mean!
Lets take a look at a couple of fun cards, shall we-
Check out that new embossing folder & the Gold Soiree DSP! Squeal! Quick & Cute just the way I like it!
The next card wasn't quite as fast but Hubby & I celebrated our 10 year anniversary on Friday so it was totally worth the extra effort. He liked it & didn't even mention where I fudged a little. He must have been mesmerized by all that SHINE. Lol! It actually doesn't show up too well but it was Gold Foil paper behind the black so it was really shiny.

Well that's all I have for today so that means its time to hop over to Alanna's place!
(Thank you Cindy for making our blog buttons this month!)
