New To Me

During Sale-a-Bration all sales that a demonstrator accumulates can earn us free sets! (Another reason I love SU!) If you have a recruit sign up during SAB we receive a free set for each recruit. This year I was lucky enough to earn several sets for sales and one for a recruit. Most of the sets I chose were bird sets since I love birds. I have been looking at these sets and wanting to stamp with them, but I haven't made stamping a priority lately. Last night I sat down to stamp some love for my oldest daughter, who is 10. On Sunday she'll be leaving for her first time away to camp. She'll be there 5 nights and she is so excited. Of course, I'm a bit sad to think she'll be gone for so many days. Luckily we are able to drop letters or packages off when we drop them off and they will be happy to be sure they get their notes at "mail call" each day. My plan is to create a new card for her each day and a package for one day during the week. This is the first card I made when I sat down last night. The set is made with one of my SAB earnings, Cheep Talk. I love this set! I used some retired paper from Stampin' Up!, my Top Note Die, some ribbon and some rhinestone brads. I don't know if you can tell, but the little birdie is popped up with dimensionals. I adored this paper when Stampin' Up! sold it and it is sad that it is no longer available for purchase...it is perfect for summer.
