I made this for my friend and Downline, Char. Char and I have been friends since our kids were little. My youngest son, Zachary was a difficult baby and I decided I needed to stay home with him so I quit my job and took some kids in to help with the loss of income. Char has three children and I watched them while she worked.
Char is one of the reasons I became a Demonstrator in the first place. We belonged to a stamp club where the Demonstrator stopped and she talked me into joining and starting may own club. Then Char became a downline last year during Sale-a-bration. Last week she promoted within the Stampin’ Up! family which, in turn, made me promote! Yay for both of us. I am super excited about it.
I decided to make this card as a thank you to Char because I love the sentiment and it fit perfectly. I used the stamp set called Beautiful Bouquet which is in the Annual Catalog. It has a set of matching dies called Bouquet Bunch and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. I didn’t use the dies this time but they are beautiful. The colors I used are Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Basic Black. I think it is a sweet, simple card that conveys my feeling for Char.
Remember, now is a great time to join Stampin’ Up!. Normally you get to choose $125 worth of product for $99 (plus tax, free shipping!) but during Sale-a-bration you get an additional TWO stamps sets of your choice at no charge! Then you get to enjoy 20% (or more) off all your future purchases! How awesome is that!! Just click on the Join Now button to the right of this post. There is no obligation to buy another thing but everyone loves a discount so you just might!
