3 Cheers for Stampin' Up! and the Clearance Rack!

This just in from Stampin' UP!  
The "Ban" has been lifted!
You may now include Clearance Rack items in your in-person Workshop Orders 
and I can now include Clearance Rack items in orders you place with me directly!!!

This is fantastic news folks!!!

Just remember, if the items are out of stock when the order is placed, 
and it is a Workshop order, 
your Hostess Benefits may be subject to change - unless a substituted item is ordered. 

For ordering Clearance Rack items as part of a Workshop or Club order,
placing your order Online, using a Hostess Code, 
is still your best bet!

Happy Stamping,

Happy Father's Day! ( a little bit late)

Today's card is the Father's Day card I made for my Hubby!
I know, I'm late... Father's day was a long time ago!
But, it's super cute and is a "throw-back" card 
so I couldn't resist.

We made this card when I had a chance to stamp
with my Sister-in-law and a friend.  
I just knew it was going to make the perfect Father's Day card for this year!
I just love it!  That puppy is so Cute!
We are adding a new 4-legged addition to our family
on the 4th of July - this image was perfect!!!

My Puppy image is from the stamp set 
For Father 
and goes back to 2008.
He's stamped in Early Espresso 
on a Sahara Sand Top Note.

I used the (retired) background stamp 
Flannel Plaid 
stamped in Always Artichoke
on the very vanilla panel behind my image panel.

The (retired) Always Artichoke Seam Binding Ribbon
ties the whole thing together (no pun intended - grin).

I hope my card has inspired you to re-visit some of your 
Throw-Back stamp sets and show them some love!
Any image would work beautifully in place of my puppy 
and you could swap out designer paper for my Flannel Plaid.
The options are endless!

Happy Stamping,
