Info from my Stampin' Up! Regional presentation

12 More Samples and 200,000 hits!

Here are 12 MORE samples of 4x4 cards using the Tie the Knot Simply Scrappin' Kit from Stampin' Up!   I just love this kit and as you can see, I have combined it with our Sale-A-Bration Rub-Ons, taffeta ribbon, wide Grosgrain ribbon, and the fabulous new Poly-Twill ribbon from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog.

AND... WAHOOOOOOOOO... can you believe it... my blog received it's 200,000th hit overnight last night!!!  OH MY GOSH!  In just 9 short months - 200,000 hits!!  wowza!!!  To celebrate, I'll be randomly picking 4 people who leave a comment to this post, and I'll be sending you some of these Tie the Knot Cards!  good luck! (winners selected at 9:00am Tuesday, Feb. 19)



Did you know our Scallop Circle punch fits the "heart/flower" rub-on perfectly?? (upper left card below).. I didn't know that until I tried it .. but it's too cute!


Have a terrific day and THANKS for stopping by!
