Sale-a-Bration is almost over! Free goodies with every $50.00 order.
Country Dozen Rewards = Free Stamps!
Today while I worked on my taxes (I'm almost done) I multi-tasked, and my hubby will be the first one to say I don't know how to do this, and well maybe I can't cause anyway after I put one load of wash in when I went to take it out and put it in the dryer I realized I must have washed like a pocket pack of kleenexes or something, it had to have been in my Stampin' Up! apron cause I also had jeans of Jeff's in there and he does not use kleenexes, I won't even tell you how he blows his nose…outside…I think it comes from being a farmer. Anyway, I got everything in the dryer and this is the mess from the lint trap and then from shaking off the dried clothes.
Crazy eh? But what is weird is some of them almost look whole. Not that I am using them, but still. So next time I better check the pockets better. I guess there could be worse things to wash/dry…like gum…or other things eh Tandra?
At Leadership, Stampin' Up! had a contest and you could submit a card using the stamp sets in the mini catalog and they set up clothes lines and you had to find the place to hang your card. I loved the idea that we could hang our own stuff up, but sometimes people would move something and then the clothes line would go boing! boing! when you were taking your picture so that was not good.
Here are some more samples of the displays that Stampin' Up! had showing the new Bigz Dies.
I love this tree using a pot, and the new Dresen Designs Bigz Die, this would be a great class at Christmas time wouldn't it?
Love the little flags on top and the heart banners going around.
Another new die is the Elegant Bird, and she looks darling with her pearls and the little tassled hat, her feet is a paperclip.
Here's some of the awesome samples that Demonstrators submitted, I don't know whose is whose, but I know you will enjoy them and be inspired like I was. Addes since original post, I had a few people email saying thats my card, or this is so and so's card…so cool, I can put names.
Love the layers on this one. I thought it was Kimberly Van Diepen's but ya never know and Teresa said it was.
I really think the only way to do this Doily stamp is to emboss it, it looks so real and believe me Granny tried to teach me to crochet pineapples, I only did one (one pineapple, not one doily!!!) and I was a nervous wreck, cause I was holding my fingers wrong when I was holding the needles…ha!
Oh man, there's that set and DSP I love so much! This is Sharon Madsen's card (I hope I got her last name right)
So cute, the layers, the flowers, the cutting out of the words.
These two were very similar, so either the same person did them and submitted two cards, or maybe two girlfriends did them together, either way I love them both. Yay! I was right the same talented girl did these and her name is Diane Stader…thanks for hollering at me girls!!!
Well I better get back to the calculator…oh a little tidbit of advice, don't get the cheap recycled adding machine rolls, they are too thin, so they just spin and don't feed right…grrr….sorry Mother Nature, I tried.
Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

Diane Stader says
What a marvelous way to start the day! I read my stamping heroes blogs first thing in the morning and did a double-take when I saw two of my Leadership cards posted here. Mine are the last two with the rolled flowers. Thank you so much – I just feel giddy! Blessings, Diane

Be glad it was only tissue… I washed my white lace-edged sheets and at the last minute threw in my daughter's white sweatshirt. I didn't notice anything until I opened the dryer – and out fell a black crayon… Now my once-beautiful sheets are spotted all over with black……. I check pockets EVERY time now!
Love your blog, Diana. I often read it last thing before bed because it always cheers me up!
