We’ve got a lot to cover today, so grab your coffee and get settled in.
I Love You
Happy Valentine’s Day! I just want to let you know that I love you. I am probably not going to be able to take you out for dinner tonight, but I am grateful each and every day that you take time to sit with me and read all the words I write. I couldn’t send flowers (the flower shop was “all booked up”), yet you respond each day with your kind words and with your support. I am so lucky. Thank you.
Brian’s Stampin’ Clubhouse
In conjunction with Stampin’ Up!’s announcement of a new Hostess Code, I announced a new online stamp club, and I want you to join in. Check it out here, and please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to join in. I don’t want to add undue pressure, but three of your closest friends joined in yesterday, and they really, really, really hope you join in too! Let’s chat about it!
Brian is a Big Dummy
On Tuesday, I shared Round Two of my Valentine’s Day One-for-One Swaps. One of the cards I shared was from Sharon Jones in Sulphur, LA. Sharon is a member of my Stampin’ Team. Here’s the photo I shared with you:
When I first received Sharon’s card, I thought it was really beautiful, but I didn’t really “get” the paper towel featured on the front. I showed it to a couple of friends, and we all said the same thing – “good for her for trying something new!” I love Sharon’s combination of DSP’s and her antiqued background. I love the ribbon and sentiment across the front, but I don’t know why the paper towel is there. WELL, come to find out, Sharon added the paper towel to protect the sentiment during shipment. It was a part of her packaging. WHY DID THAT NEVER OCCUR TO ME?!?!
Trying to right a wrong, I reached out to Sharon to get a better photo of her card. Here’s Sharon’s card in all it’s glory (click here to see the card on Sharon’s blog):
Valentine’s Day One-for-One Swap: Day 3
For the past week, I’ve been sharing the cards from the participants in my Valentine’s Day One-for-One Swap. They vary in theme and design, but each one is totally beautiful! Please take a look at these cards, and let the artist know how much you like what they’ve made. If you missed the other days of cards, you can find them here:
Again, please let these fine paper crafters know how much you love what they’ve made.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
