Dick Clark & Ryan Seacrest are probably sleeping in today. So Ann's asked me to kick off this hockey sticks year by thanking, not just our readers and customers, but by thanking our team of 24/7 Stampers.  They just finished a challenge where a TON of our 24/7 Stampers stepped up their game!  And some of those are going to earn stampin' cash to get whatever Stampin' Up! stamps & accessories they want! 


When we put the challenge out, we had no idea how many stamp prizes we'd be buying for them this month!  I'm going to have to dig up a lot of bones to pay for the prizes!

So, hats off to you, 24/7 Stampers!  Keep up the good work!

Our guest artist today is Karen Johnson who earned her first Stampin' Up! cruise last year.  We had an Occasions Mini shoebox swap earlier this week so that all of our demonstrators would have samples to share with their friends.  That's where each person brings a card idea for everyone to make & then each person makes everyone else's card.  You come with 1 idea & go home with many. This was Karen's card for the swap using the Nature Walk set (Wood-#121925 Clear-#121997) that you can get starting January 4th.

you should join us too! I don't think Ann sponged it enough, but maybe next time.

Hope your head's feeling fine today.  I even let out two quick barks when the ball dropped & Ann was kissing.  I'm allowed!

It's a great time to be the blog dog of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  Find out more about joining our team here.
