Dear Blog Followers

Dear Blog Followers,

On Sunday, April 20 I received a wonderful email from one of you.  My heart was so touched. 

Hello Beth,

I wanted to virtually introduce myself.  I am Debbie B.  I live in North Carolina.
I am a hobby demonstrator.  So, unfortunately, I will not be placing orders with you (as I have a very difficult time meeting my minimums).  But I hope you receive lots of orders from others!

Thank you so very much for your blog.  I am still fairly inexperienced and learning. I appreciate how you share the measurements and details for your cards/projects with us - very helpful!   Also, I have retired items, including DSP, and new items.  Seeing you use retired items, combined with some new items or colors is helpful and inspiring!

May you enjoy a blessed Easter,

Thank you Debbie for taking the time to email me.  I am thrilled that my blog postings inspire you.

My Own Stampin' Up! Website

Good morning followers,

I now have a Stampin' Up! Website from which you can place an order.  I don't have a blog that has more advertisement and links than it does content.  My blog is dedicated to helping you create beautiful cards and paper craft items.

Stampin' Up! is offering free shipping April 21 through April 25, 2014.  That is a 10% savings for each and every Stampin' Up! Product.

Please consider ordering from me during this great savings offer from Stampin' Up!.  I will have a special link and code you need to use beginning April 21 at 10:00 am.  Feel free to email me or stop back on Monday for the information

Jesus hugs,
