New Hostess Set Simply Sketched

Here is a card done with one of the new hostess sets that will be available in the new 2013-2014 catalog.  It is called Simply Sketched.  I used a Soft Suede base with a frame made from a new color Pistachio Pudding, it is one of the new In-Colors for 2013-2015, and Crumb Cake that I textured with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I dabbed a bit of Crumb Cake ink on the folder before I ran it thru the Big Shot to give it a bit more shading.  I stamped the image using my Markers in Always Artichoke leaves and stems, Blushing Bride for the berries and Crumb Cake for the bird.  I then I colored the bird in a bit with blues and yellow.   I gave the leaves and berries a little color and popped the frame up with dimensionals.

Some of you will be getting the new Catalog any day, and if you want to place and order I am starting a new program for Online Order Customers.  Each month I will open a show and post the Hostess Show number.  If you place a $50 order online (or with me personally if you need help) I will enter your name into the drawing for Hostess benefits, (the total show must be at least $150.00 for benefits).  I will pull a name and contact that person to let them know what the benefits are and get their hostess order.  Now how easy is that to be a hostess.  With our new Hostess Code it is easy to host and online show.  You just need to share the code with your long distant friends & family.  Have them go to my website and place their order with your code.  Easy as pie!!!  If you would rather do a Home Workshop or a Workshop in a Box, please contact me and we can put your workshop on the calendar.  I have open dates on my calendar.   
Just a note, you can't see the new 2013-2014 catalog online yet, it will be available on May 31st.  But the Spring Catalog and the 2012-2013 catalog are still in effect until June 3rd so every one can get the retiring items.  Check out the list on my website for some great savings.
Until next time, be kind and do one thing today that makes YOU happy.

Happy Father's Day

Here is a card I did for the Lee County Library Class I am doing on the 18th.  I tried to do something for everyone and at every level.  This will be the third card the class will be doing.  I used the set Dapper Dad which in in the Spring Mini Catalog.  I use a retired Father's day sentiment since I have a limited supply of sentiments that include Father's Day.  Hope you enjoy!

Have a great day!
