If you are a blog follower of mine, you may noticed a significant drop in my postings.  Like almost all of us, I have many titles--wife, mommy, prek coordinator/teacher, crafter, runner, etc.--and having the job of Stampin' Up! demonstrator was one that I loved.  However, I also started a new venture as a consultant for Steeped Tea, which is an up and coming direct sales company that sells loose leaf tea, tea accessories and products.  In my endeavor to find balance in my life, something had to give, and unfortunately, making the minimums to stay active with Stampin' Up! was one of the things that I decided to let go.  This does not mean that I will not continue to make cards and post them, nor does it mean that I may never join SU! again.  But at this point in time, I'm sad to say, I am no longer an active demonstrator. 

If you are interested in my new venture, you can find me at my Steeped Tea website, facebook page, or blog

If you are looking for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator to buy from, I encourage you to visit the online shop of my upline, Beth Ann Wilson, who has become, and will continue to be, a wonderful friend of mine. 

God bless!

Happy Birthday with Quatrafancy Window Sheet

When CASE'ing (Copy and Share Everything), I usually change certain elements or part of the design.  This time, I copied almost everything exactly...except for the ribbon and the Subtle buttons instead of the Brights!  But then I did the card again in different colors. 
Stamps: Pennant Parade
Inks: Crumb Cake
Paper:  Crumb Cake , Quatrafancy Specialty (retired)
Other:  Natural Trim ribbon (retired), Blossom punch, Pansy punch, Linen Thread, Subtles Designer Buttons, Bitty Banners Framelits, Glue Dots

Thank you to Kay Kalthoff for the inspiration for this card!
