Best Day Ever/YOU made My DAY

photo 1 (18)

Our very good friend surprised Abby with flowers and candy the other day.  Of course Abby was thrilled, and wanted to send a very special thank you note.  I decided to use the MOJO Monday sketch 387 and here’s what I came up with for my first attempt.  Tomorrow I’ll show you the second attempt and you can tell me which you like better.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Best Day Ever set which I got free during Sale-A-Bration.  I love the saying, “You made MY DAY,” because our friend really did Make Abby’s Day!  The Calypso Coral Pompom Trim made the card even more special!  I added hearts along the bottom of the envelope.  When the card arrives, do you think they will open the bills first or the envelope with hearts across it?   I know which one I would open first.

Here’s the happy inside of the card.  I left room in the middle for Abby to write a note.

I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since 2003.  It truly brings me joy to make a card and send it to someone who I think will feel joy receiving it!

So, I bet you’re wondering why I would show this Halloween card in February?  Well, guess what?  The stamp set, Fall Fest, is on the clearance rack for $11.19 and the Fun Fall Framelits are also on the clearance rack for $17.49.  You know next October when you really want this set and framelits, it will be on ebay for a bizillion dollars.  The “Spooky Spooky” etc. is from Mingle All the Way.  Yep, it’s on the clearance rack also at $12.59.  This is a great time to get a sweet deal and be set for Halloween.

On the inside I used the Holiday Invitation set and the retired bat punch.

.Here are the  goodie bags she made for the party using the Paper Pumpkin.  These were so quick and 1 (15)

Paper Pumpkin is awesome!  We get a new kit in the mail every month, and Abby and I have a great time putting the cards or projects together.

Abby also made cute bat cookies, Reese’s spider treats and more.  I thought you might enjoy seeing them even though they aren’t stamped.

We also made treats for the teachers. The Fry Box gets a lot of use at my house.

Watercolor Thank you stack

This simple thank you card was CASED from Susan Itell’s Simple Stampin Feb. 14 post.  Tonight we were invited to fun pizza gathering.  Thirty minutes before it was time to leave, I had the brilliant idea to make some cards as a hostess gift.  What could I make in 30 minutes?  Then I remembered Susan’s post from yesterday, and knew I had the answer.  The only problem was, I don’t own the set she used to make the flower and leaves.  The great thing is you can CASE a card, and just use what you have.  I love the Stampin’ Up! single stamp Watercolor Thank You.  Every stamper needs this stamp.

I made five of these cards and five lined envelopes.

Here they are packaged up and ready to go!  If you own stamping supplies, take a few minutes and make a thoughtful homemade gift.  I’m sure our hostess tonight really appreciated them.
