Exciting News!

Happy Monday, Peeps!

I'm absolutely giddy as I type this post today.  I have prayed for a very long time that God would make a way for me to be able to do what I love (create and share my love of stamping and paper crafts) with all of you.  While I never expected the road that led me here...I'm THRILLED to tell you that as of TODAY...

"Suitably Stamped" is absolutely the most fulfilling gift that I could imagine.  I love sharing techniques, designs, ideas and supplies with you.  I can't wait to see what God has in store for me and my business.  Stampin' Up! is absolutely a dream come true for me and I am blessed to be a part of an amazing team of creative people and I'm proud of all of those who work so hard as our corporate team.
I hope you're as excited as I am to see what's ahead.  Stay tuned for LOTS more creativity and fun with me.

Now I know the calendar says that spring is here but...um....well, we had freezing rain and sleet here in our little town today.  Grrrr.  I am SO ready for sunshine!  The weather man says it's going to warm up this week so I'm holding on to that.
Spring or no spring....It's feeling bright and cheery here in my studio today.  I created a new "hip chick" named "Gladys" to get a little "spring" in my step....
Wanna meet her?  Okie doke....Heeeeere's "Gladys"!

Isn't she just the cutest??  I swear you can just feel how sassy she is.
I used my Circle Collection Framelits for the front and back pieces of her body.  I then created a little "box" and attached them to it to create a little Easter Treat Box.  You can't really see it too well in this photo but there's a little cello bag full of mini malted eggs inside the box and tied with a sweet pink ribbon.

She would be perfect for your Easter dinner table, for class treats for your kids or even gifts for your co-workers.  If you'd like a list of the supplies I used, just leave me a comment below.  I'm not in my studio right now so I don't have the list of supplies with item numbers with me.  I'd be more than happy to post them for you if you'd like though.

Alright.....Don't forget that TODAY is the LAST DAY OF SALE A BRATION.  If you haven't placed your order yet....it's not too late.  Just head over to my online store and shop til you drop.  

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments and your love and prayers these last couple of weeks.  God is good...ALL the time. 

Stamped Blessings,
