Moving on....

This morning started with an email from a good friend, and Stampin' Up! customer, who sent me an order for retiring stamps and accessories.  That really woke me up fast!  As I started the order I worried about that list of 'retiring accessories' ~ I knew the stamp sets would be there!  In the end it worked out pretty good but there were FOUR items on her list that were no longer available.  So, we talked about 'substitutes' and I redid the order, got her Hostess Dollars for her and finished the order.  Or so I thought ~ TWO more accessories NOT available!  Back to the drawing board!  But, not to worry, the order is finished and on it's way to Williamsburg!  Wow ~ stressful morning.

Eberything Eleanor 2

Tomorrow, everything will be new again.  Isn't this card lovely?  The stamp set is Everything Eleanor and you can find it on page 112 in Stampin' Up!'s 2012-2013 catalog ~ tomorrow.  See you then, Susan Elise

Not So Seriously ~ seriously

Seriously, Not So Seriously is retiring in one day, May 31, 2012 ~ gone!  And, it has brought so much fun to Stampin' Up!'s 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  This would be a great day to place one last order and include this fun lady and the muttley crew!  #123087 (c) or #123085 (w) on page 55 in the catty ~

 Samples from Stampin' Connection except the first one.  Lots of you will remember making the turtle card in a recent Stamp-a-Stack class in the Cat/Art Studio ~ 16 cards, busy Saturday morning!  Let me know if you are interested in this beautiful set, these lined images stamp so well and it is so easy to make interesting cards and projects with the nest, the shell, the dragonfly, the turtle and the feather.
