Veronica's Vision

A customer of mine wants to put together an invite, favor and thank you for her niece's Holy Communion... it doesn't have to have a religious motif, so it was up to me... ok... so, here it is... I had a hard time at first, but then got rollin and viola! Veronica's Vision... interpreted by: me.
The back of the paperclip on the napkin ring is blank so she can add the favor information on it... and under the nugget box is a blank label as an idea of where she can add a "Thank You". Hope you like it. I've been busy, but trying to always make something.
I used: All Stampin'Up! products unless noted:
Stamps: Boho Backgrounds, One of a Kind, Sweet Celebrations
C/S: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Whisper White, Vellum
Ink: Same as colored CS.
Ribbons: Tafetta pink and Regal rose 5/8"
Punches: Scallop, boho blossoms (love it), 1 1/4" circle, 1' circle, dbl rectangle
Other: regal brads, sticky strip, dimensionals, SNAIL tape, Generic jumbo paperclips and Avery labels for nugget covers.

Well, I'm off to bed... hope she likes it.

Sale-a-bration ... here it is and bigger than ever...

Wow.. I can barely contain my excitement with what's in store with the Sale-a-bration promotion from Stampin'Up! this month and next... not only do customers benefit galore, but if you are a customer who spends at least $150.00 in stamps.... Stampin'Up!'s got a deal for you that you can't pass up.

All new people who sign up to be a demonstrator in the month of February will get a starter kit that is worth $330.00 for only $159.00!!!! It is usually $199.00, but as a bonus this promotion SU is offering another 20% off!!!! Ok, that was so exciting to me that I had to sign on a new friend who is now purchasing stamps and accessories from me on a regular basis.

The way I see it... is.... if I can spend 10.00 a day on lunch.... that makes 600.00 a quarter... do the math... I only need 300.00 a quarter to keep myself active as a demonstrator... that means only 5.00 a day need go in my savings tin.... that is, of course, If I'm the only one customer I have... ha ha!! $5.00 a day.... that's nothing these days!!! I can do that!!! And that way I don't feel the pinch so much on my wallet.

How about you??? Are you interested... write to me... I'd love to have my downline grow and what a better time... I have another interested friend and If she signs up... well them, I'm one recruit short of becoming a manager... I never dreamed I'd get there, but we have lots of fun even if we don't see each other that much... we certainly keep close phone and email contact.

I hope you will take a look at the promotion... come see Sale-a-bration
