Another fun swap card using the adorable This Little Piggy set and the new Text Ya Later sets. This card was made by Jeanette Egemann from Germany, thanks Jeanette!! It is hard to see but she used our back from the past glossy cardstock for the pigs and they just glisten!

So I mentioned trying to get over jetlag, I wake up at 230am, ugh! Before we left for our trip I was riddled with anxiety and had trouble sleeping so the doc gave me some pills to help calm down and sleep on the plane, but I didn't want to take one of them so I just took a couple cold pills and I slept till noon...well that is not right either...ha!

I also heard it takes 1 day an hour that there was a time difference, so next week I should be back to my routine? At least the weekend is here and that should help. Right?

While I get back to my normal schedule, this jetlag is taking forever, someone said a day for each hour and I think we were ten hours difference, I know I was up at 2:30am this morning...and now I am losing steam.

I will be sharing some of my favorites swaps I received from our Thailand Incentive Trip for a while, that way I can get caught up and still share with you each day. Sound good? This beautiful card was made by Gina Connor from the UK, thanks Gina!

Now if only I could share the Mango Sticky Rice with you as well.  I really want to learn to make it. I had tried a mango once here and it was gross, so I figured I did not like them...then our family doc gave us a list of foods to try and this was on it...OMG!  I think I ate it every day. The mangos in Thailand are amazing, I must have had a raw one here.

Mango Sticky Rice

My mouth is watering just looking at it.

Well I better sign off and get to body was up early but not my brain, I washed a load of water...forgot to add the clothes, and then put them in the dryer and forgot to turn on the dryer. Yikes, good thing I don't have to drive to work eh?

While we are vacationing on the Stampin' Up! trip to Thailand I wanted to offer Double Eggs.

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.

July Hostess Code

Each month I will have a new Hostess Code that you will use in my online store while ordering. Above is July's code. Please note: Stamp Club Members this is NOT the code that you will use. You have a private Hostess Code for that month's Hostess.

All these order totals are before tax and shipping (this way I don't have to say it each time).
When you place an order of:
~$30.00 you earn that month's PDF (this is the PDF only and will be emailed at the end of the month) - July is "Coffee Cafe" but place an order of:
~$50.00 you earn the PDF and a Country Dozen Reward Point  but place an order of:
~$75.00 you earn the PDF, the Country Dozen Reward Point and July's goodie (see below).  Goodies do not come with your order.  They are ordered on the first of the following month shipped to me and then sent with your thank you card.
~As always if you are ordering $150.00 you will not use my code (that way you will earn your own Hostess Benefits), but you will still earn the PDF, Country Dozen Rewards and the monthly goodie.

This months goodie is the new Glitter Enamel Dots (shown below), these are gorgeous!  160 sparkly adhesive backed dots. They are ombre colored so go with everything!

July Christmas Card of the Month - Class in the Mail - Father Christmas

Father Christmas Class in the Mail July Diana Gibbs

I am so excited that you are excited about my Christmas Card of the Month starting up again. July is the second month. Here are the details.

What a great way to get your Christmas cards done stress free.  Each month you will do 10 identical cards, but each month will be a different card. You do not have to sign up for a certain amounts of months, you do as many as you like. Class fee is due no later than July 18 or while supplies last.

The Christmas Card of the Month Class in the Mail is $30.00 per month and this will include one completed card for you to copy from (this way I will not be doing a video or a PDF like my other Class in the Mail classes) and supplies for 10 matching cards and envelopes mailed to you by priority mail.  You will use your own inks and stamps at home (you can tweak the card with what you have at home), nothing will be stamped on your supplies.  If anything is needed in regards to punches or the Big Shot those will be done ahead of time and in your packet.
Let me know you want to order the Christmas Card of the Month Class in the Mail and I will email you the paypal link.
If you want to use the stamp set we will be using this month on your card it is Father Christmas #142122 (w) or #142125 (c*) you can choose to have me send that to you with your supplies for an additional $28.00 (w) or $20.00 (c) or you can order it through my store along with anything else you may want to order.
*Remember with clear mount stamps you will need to supply your own clear blocks, these are sold separately.

Class packets will be mailed the week of August 1 and I can only ship within the US, thanks for understanding.
Holler if you have any questions.
