Yesterday was a big day around here.  Ann got home after midnight on Sunday.  She almost missed the plane in New Orleans and NOT because she was late!  But because she was sleeping – yes – SLEEPING at the wrong gate!  She got there so early that she thought she had all the time in the world!  But that story is for another day.

And because my favorite huMAN is retired from the Air Force (AND she’d been gone for a week), she devoted the next 24 hours to him.  I think she pays more attention to him on Veterans Day than on their anniversary or his birthday!  Go figure!

But before we get to a couple highlights of Ann’s long awaited trip to New Orleans, I’ve GOT to share some of the latest Stampin’ Up! specials!

Stampin’ Up! has just released a Festive Flurry Ornament Kit this morning for those of you who want to make some quick ornaments or dynamic embellishments for your cards!  They’re quick, easy and fun just like me!  And they’re great for those of you who don’t have a Big Shot or who need to make a ton of ornaments and embellishment SUPER FAST!

SnowflakeKitAnd here’s a quick video by my pal from Stampin’ Up! to show you how quickly these go together.

So don’t wait!  Get them here before they’re gone!  And whhile you’re checking those out, be sure to get a peek at the Weekly Deals that were released this morning too!


So now that you’re back from shopping in our online store, here’s a little peek from when Ann got to go to New Orleans to learn how to take better care of you.  We’ll keep it to one special one that I have a question about so that you can get on with your day with a smile.

I just want to know if Ann PLANNED to have that horse jump out of her head, or did it just happen by accident.  What do YOU think?  Just leave a comment below.


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