I know it's been forever since I last posted. Life got really crazy.
Right after the New Year, I had to make an emergency trip to South Carolina. My aunt, whom I consider my mother, was having some health problems and needed help. My cousins live in Pittsburgh so it's just my aunt and her husband. I was able to keep her company while in the hospital and also do some cooking and cleaning for them. Once my cousin did come down, I tried to come home twice. First, the snowstorm Izzy came through and then Covid hit the house. Fortunately, it was mostly cold-like symptoms but it delayed me another week. Finally, after 3 weeks, I was able to come home. And I'm happy to report my aunt and her husband are still doing well. I was happy to spend some time with my aunt and my cousin, just not in that way.
Did you remember that Sale-a-Bration was going on? That's where you can earn FREE products with every order in increments of $50. Plus there's no limit to the the number of FREE items you can get.
The Mini Catalog is also live now! I think it is one of the BEST ONES EVER! Seriously. It is fabulous. My Wish List is still way too long. The one suite I knew I had to get was the Flowering Fields Suite. The tulips remind me of those we saw in Amsterdam. I'm hoping to re-create some of those.
While I was in South Carolina, my aunt doesn't have internet, so my cousin and I had to be creative in the evenings. Since I drove, I did bring some of my SU! products. I decided she needed to make a Valentine's Day card for her fiancee. Perfect way to kill some time. We found a card on Pinterest that we cased. She's never stamped before so it was fun teaching her.
I had to watch some videos on how to put the tulip pieces together, but this is what she made. It turned out super cute. I just hope that she does actually give it to him!
The tulips were cut from the Flowering Fields DSP. We had to make sure to use different shades to get the effects of the tulips. The stems and leaves are using Mint Macaroon. It was what I happened to have and it worked out pretty good.
That's all I have for now. I'm getting back into the swing of things and will be posting more regularly again.
Until next time...Stampin' Always,
