Baby Card Made with Love

  • Retired list means the new catalog is right around the corner
  • Purple Prince

I'm an great aunt again - for the twelfth time!

I needed a baby card for my niece and nephew who added there fourth child -- whew --makes me tired just thinking about the schedules needed to keep a busy family with four on track .  So I broke out the Made with Love (138662) stamp to make this cute card congratulate them on their newest edition.  One of the sentiments is ...the world just got cuter..and that's so true! See the card and recipe below.

New Catalogs coming soon...

Demonstrators, like myself, already have the new catalog and you're beginning to see sneak peeks from the new catalog all over the web.  This week I'm placing my bulk order for new catalogs.  Customers who have placed an order this year are already on my mailing list for new catalogs.  Place a $50 order this week and I'll place your name on my mailing list for a new catalog.  New catalogs will arrive in May and orders from the new catalog can be placed in June 1, 2016. 

Passing of Prince...Pure Purple Love  

Yes. I admit it.  Growing up in Minnesota, I was heavily influenced by the music of Prince.  Minneapolis has an incredible live music scene.  My physical therapist was very surprised that this overweight, late 60ish woman in Texas even knew what a live music scene was, let alone participated in it.  Back then music and live bands were a big part of my life in the 80s. Prince was known to turn up unexpectedly in clubs and just start jammin' with the bands on stage, and those impromptu performance were always something special.  And for everyone who tells you "nice girls don't go to bars,"  I want to let you know that not only do I cherish the years of music experiences I had in Minnesota, but I also met my wonderful husband in a bar -- another "no-no" -- and he turned out to be the greatest husband on earth!  For those of you who, like me,  are mourning one of the greatest and most prolific musicians of our era, here's his 2007 Super Bowl performance, one of the highest ranked Super Bowl performances of all times, where he performed in the middle of a rain storm.  RIP Prince.

At the end of every catalog year, its so hard to let go of the stamp sets and ribbons and papers that you've  enjoyed so much during the past year.  I always keep a few of my favorites.  I became an aunt (for the 12th time) recently and pulled out some of my retired favorites to make this card.

Be sure you get those "must have's" from the 2014-2015 catalogs that you know you'll want to keep as part of your "retired: favorites.  Only one more day before the old catalog retires and the new catalog  launches.   Save some money and check what bargains you'll find on the Stampin' Up! retired list.  Download a copy of the Stampin' Up! 2015 Retired list of stamps and accessories here:
