This dog may be able to send Ann telepathic messages so she can type my blog entries verbatim, but that doesn't mean I can read a calendar!  Yesterday was Earth Day!  Did you celebrate?  We did!  I just didn't write about it.

Ann took me to the dog park that we helped by sponsoring in its early stages.  I've only been there once or twice, but this time was the most fun ever!  I met Savannah, the Basset Hound & Leo, the Pit Bull mix.  They were both so laid back!  Then there was an Australian Shepherd that was doing some awesome frisbee work.  He sure could stay focused!  The humans weren't bad either. 

So now to the butterflies.  There's a reason why I'm calling this card Now & Later.  It's because it uses a stamp set that you can get now that goes with a stamp set that you'll want to buy later.  The lacy trim down the side is from the Stampin' Up! Clearly for You stamp set from the Occasions Mini that's going away on April 30th.


HopeButterflies-CloseHonestly,, it looks way better in real life!  It's hard to pick up those perky little neon butterflies.  But you can click on either of the pictures for a clearer, zoomed in look.  Our demonstrator team knows how to make these pretty insects.  (That is if they got a chance to read the email that Ann sent out late last night.)  Do you?

That's one of the cool things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator on our team of 24/7 Stampers.  We're just all well connected!  Yahoo group, training calls, team blog & team newsletter – you name it

The Hope Stamp & the Butterfly Stamp are from the cool set that's coming out on May 1st for a limited time.  If you have received your Summer Mini from us, it's shown on the inside flap.  $2 from every set sold is going to be donated to Breast Cancer Research. 

This isn't even the best card in our repertoire for this new stamp soon, but we've only got 7 more days left!

Hope you're planning a wonderful Easter celebration.  And remember that we're here when you need us. 

It's a great time to be the blog dog of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
