Country INKers Spring Retreat 2017

Country INKers Retreat Pillow Gift Key Ring

I will be sharing retreat fun here for a bit while I try to play ketchup with my business and house as well. April was a busy month with family visiting and my retreat, now it is back to bizness!

The last day of the retreat I got up to go pee at 5am (I know TMI) and when I got back to climb in bed I felt a horrible pain...been living in AZ since 1985 and this is my first and hopefully the last scorpion sting.

There was a little scorpion on the floor and I must have ticked him off, thank God it was me that got it and no one else, or my family the week before.  I killed him good with a shoe. Wendy looked on the phone what to do and she got me ice, Tracy gave me some tylenol for the pain, but within 15 minutes my tongue and lips were numb, my nose and throat felt funny, and my eyes were weird. So off Tracy and I went to the ER. By the time I got there, probably half an hour from the sting, I could not even control my eyes and my leg kept having spasms.  

They gave me 3 antivenoms, 2 pain things and a naseau, 6 1/2 hours later we were back at the retreat house and I slept most of the day...the toe is still numb today, so weird eh? So I apologize for not being with it for the last few days.

But hey look at this cute little pillow gift the girls got.

So sweet eh? I loved sneaking their presents onto the bed. Tracy was doing it too when we came and stamped in my studio.  Hee! Hee! I want my retreats to feel like Founder's Circle felt and I hope Tracy and I do that.

Don't forget today is the last day to pre-order your catalog.

Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.

Get a Free 2017 - 2018 Catalog


I can not believe it is that time of year again, the new catalog is around the corner. As a Demonstrator one of the perks is seeing it early, and getting to order early as well. 


I would love to have you join my team and you too can do like I did and get your hands on yummy goodness early.


Did you know that you can pick brand new stuff in your starter kit?  Yep you can pick pre-order it!!!  For $99.00 and tax (Stampin' Up! pays the shipping...more savings for you), you can pick $125.00 worth of goodies.


Ok but you say "I don't really want to be a Demonstrator right now, I prefer to just order from you and get that amazing customer service you always give, I just want the catalog."


No worries...if you are one of my Stamp Club members, one of my Paper Pumpkin Pals or one of my regular customers and you have ordered at least $60.00 in a single order since January 2017 (there is still time!) I will send you a catalog free. Please make sure to log into your account and correct your mailing address if necessary. If you have checked the no contact box in the past this is the perfect time to uncheck that so that I can send you a catalog if you earned one.


If you are not a regular customer and you do not have a Demonstrator but you would like one, please let me know by April 28.  The cost of mailing the catalog is $5.00, the catalog is free and my gift to you, I just need to recoop the postage.  I will send you a paypal link for the $5.00, and I will also send you a coupon for $5.00 off your first order of $50.00 or more so you will get your postage money back. Cool eh?


(Please note I can only mail catalogs within the US, thanks for understanding.)


Catalogs will be mailed around the middle of May.  You can begin ordering from it on June 1.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at or 602-339-2776.

AAA Country Dozen Reward Eggs Pic

I hope you are enjoying my Country Dozen Rewards.  I want to thank everyone who has participated so far and I hope you are enjoying your free stamps, make sure to keep track of your orders as well as the order dates, so your eggs don't expire.

While I spoil my downline at our second annual Country INKers Spring Retreat, I thought how about Double the Country Dozen Rewards and spoil you too?



While my Retreat is going on you will be earning double eggs. Starting April 21 - April 25 until midnight, when you place an online order through my store that totals $50.00 before tax and shipping you will earn not 1 egg, but 2, order $100.00 before tax and shipping and you will earn 4 eggs, and so on. Cool eh?

The catalogs are full of amazing stuff, so you should not have a problem finding some goodies. Don't forget the retired list is out too.

After you have earned a Dozen (12) eggs you can pick a stamp set valued up to $35.00 as a Thank You from me.

I will verify the dates when you turn your reward sheet in so make sure to mark your sheet accordingly and write double points with the dates!!!

Here is the flyer so you can print it out and keep track.  It also explains all the other details about the rewards program.

Stampin' Rewards

Please remember that when you place an order that totals at least $150.00 (before tax and shipping) you have earned Stampin' Rewards, but you have to be ordering through my on-line store in order to get them, so please use the link below to get there directly. The ordering system will ask you for your choices before you close the order.
Here is the link to make it easier:
Please note that this rewards program is being offered by me, Diana Gibbs only, and not Stampin' Up!

Country INKers Retreat Sneak Peek


Now that my family has left (tears were shed, but many memories were made). I am now getting my Country INKers Retreat stuff ready. My second annual Spring Retreat is coming up this week. I can't wait to see everyone. My BFF Tracy gets here Tuesday and she is going to cook for us again this year, she spoiled us last year and this year won't be any different.

Here is a little sneak peek of one of the things they will be getting. I will share more during or after the event.

Don't forget that the retiring list is out and some things are available while supplies last.
