but if you want to step it up just a tad, add a simple knot of Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon. Look how it ties in that Gold Foil Sheet strip!Easy-Handmade-Cards

Here I just flipped over the Designer Series Paper and used the pattern on the opposite side. How is that for a simple card design?


You can create 10 of each card with just one sheet of the Designer Paper. Pretty cool, am I right?

Well my friends, today Mr. Awesome and I are off on a grand adventure. We leave for the Stampin’ Up Incentive Trip – a cruise through the Greek Isles. 

Have you ever been excited and nervous at the same time? I love cruises and I am desperate need of some relaxation but long flights and world travel are just not my thing. They make me really nervous. I know the trip will be great and just what I need to rejuvenate me…. but couldn’t I do it closer to home? Wow, am I really whining about this? Honestly I’m not… just feeling a little stressed. I think we all get a little stressed before we leave on vacation though. Did you get the bills paid before you left, is there a package I forgot was coming, did I leave the iron on… you know, all the thoughts that kept me up last night. I hope to sleep better on the plane (who’s laughing at that right now?)

It’s going to be really hot in Greece this time of year so I am sure I will be sitting by the pool, sipping something fruity with an umbrella in it. I absolutely LOVE going on the incentive trips every year and my favorite part is visiting with my fellow Stampin’ Up friends. It’s like a giant reunion…. on the high seas. What’s not to love about that?

So, while I’m gone, I have a VERY special guest taking over my blog and videos. You know her as Ginny and I know her as my favorite youngest daughter. Yep, Ginny created some cards for you and she is SUPER excited to share them with you this next week. 

Leave her comments and tell her she’s amazing. She will really appreciate it. I think you are going to enjoy what she has to share with you next week.

QUOTE OF THE DAY – “A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.” –Robert Orben
