Every Special Reason to Find Beauty

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder or more appropriately for this post today — the card holder.

In the 2017 Occasions Catalog you will find an awesome stamp set and framelits “bundle” that makes incredibly beautiful cards and 3-D projects — Special Reason Bundle.

Of course you could purchase the stamp set by itself and “fussy cut” images by hand, but the framelits save you time and make such a clean and perfect cut — and just look at that peek-a-boo window on the card!   Plus, when you purchase these products as a bundle, you save 10% — bonus!  The stamps are available in both wood-mount and clear-mount and are of the high-quality red rubber variety.

Whatever option you select, I bet you dollars to donuts that there is at least one person in your life who would love to hold in their hands a beautiful card handmade by you!  Not creative, you say?  Of course you are, I can show you how!

Have you been kicking around the idea of subscribing to Paper Pumpkin?  Well, there is still time to get the March kit — subscribe by Friday, March 10.  Then, get ready for a big surprise coming in April — a kit inspired and designed by Stampin’ Up! CEO, Sara Douglass.  I can share more information with you after March 11!  Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!


Okay, now if you are a regular visitor to my blog you are probably asking yourself, when is she going to make something and post it already.  I hope to get there soon as I really do miss getting my fingers all inky.

On a personal note, I was diagnosed last year with primary immunodeficiency disease, which I admit is a very scary term but it simply means my body’s immune system is broken and I no longer generate antibodies to fight off infections (and explains why I got sick so easily and could not get rid of bronchitis for over six months).  It is not contagious. While there is no cure, there is a treatment that I started in September called IGA infusion. Every three weeks I sit in an infusion center for five+ hours with an IV in my arm receiving human blood proteins that help my body generate antibodies.  The good news is that my IGA levels have increased from low 200’s to high 800’s (normal is around 1200); the bad news is that it makes me extremely tired for about a week afterwards.  I just had one on March 3rd and I hope to spend time in my craft room this weekend so I should have lots of projects to share with you soon.

In the meantime, I would love to see your projects.

Thanks for stopping by.  Until next time, stamp on my friends.
