Mr. Toad is back!

Mr. Toad is back in my window well and still wants to come in and stamp:

???????????????????????????????Last summer we were visited by Mr. Toad and his family.  Guess what?  He’s back!! So far I have only seen him.  Last year we had two of them and they would do kart wheels over each other trying to get in to stamp.  Towards the end of summer we had little tiny baby toads.  It was so much fun to watch them and I was surprised when one of my stampers noticed him again this year.

Stamping just brings all living creatures together!  We have Mr. Toad watching over us and my naughty cat and Artie, one of our black labs, visiting us while we are stamping at any given time.

I really need to clean that window, but, I don’t want to disturb his home, nor do I want to use something that could harm him.  So, sorry for the spots!

This is another card from the Kismet class this month:

???????????????????????????????The card base is in soft sky, the designer indigo designer paper is from the Kaleidoscope selection.  The top layer is the embossed vellum that is seen in the Occasions catalog and will also be in the 2014-2015 annual catalog.  I used the silver foil paper to punch out the star on the front and put 3 inside the card.

Remember, if your card is not finished in the inside it’s like opening a beautifully wrapped box only to find that it’s empty!  What a disappointment that would be!

Just for good measure here is another card:

???????????????????????????????Yes, another graduation card.  Tis the season you know!  This time the base of the card is in crushed curry with an accent of gold foil paper which is cut with the fringe scissors.  The stamp set used in both cards is called Bravo and is found in the new 2014-2015 annual catalog.

This card is a sample in the new catalog.  It showed the little flag with a tooth pick.  However, this is one of the cards that I stamped while at Camp Stamp-in-Oga on Sunday, (Yes, Barb D. I did actually stamp 5 cards that day!).  Back to the description, I used a coffee stirrer as my flag pole because that’s what was at my finger tips.

So, when someone tells me that they could not do what I do, this is a good example of how anyone can do what I do.  Stampin’ Up! has so many wonderful samples in the catalogs that you really never have to re-invent the wheel.  Everything is there before you.

Starting on May 28th SU will be having a sign up special.  I don’t have all the details yet, but, I do know that you will be able to sign up for only $50.  You will get to pick $55 in product and will receive 30% off on your first order as a demonstrator within the first 45 days!  We will get more details on the 28th.  So, this could be the start of your Stampin’ Up! journey!  I would LOVE to make the journey with you!

Happy Stamping!

    What a great shot! Mr. Toad really does look like he wants to come in and check things out. SO wish I had windows in my stamp room.
