Where have I been you may be asking. Well, I got a copy of Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio and I have been playing. Even being as computer illiterate as I am I got the hang of this program right away. I even installed it myself! So I am going to show you a project I worked on the first day. It is a 6x6 page. My kids are at the base of the tree and my niece and nephews are in the tree. I sent this in to the SU! printer and I can not wait to get it back.

The last October Deal of the Week has been announced and it is the Pirate and Princess party kits shown on pages 74-75 and 174-175! Until October 31st, you can get these kits—no limits—for just $9.99 instead of $15.95 each. These are an awesome option to throw together a great party in a snap!
And they’re not just for kids and birthdays—think bridal showers or baby showers, girl’s night out, guy’s game night, or even a fun theme for your next family reunion. Ahoy Mateys!!!
How about a “birthday in a box” for your favorite college student away from home? Wouldn't that be fun to open up at the dorms?
Each kit includes a clever craft for eight, party favors, cupcake toppers, banners, invitations and envelopes. The only thing you need is adhesive—everything else including ribbon for the banners, elastic cord for the pirate eye patches, even toothpicks, comes included in the kit!
Imagine a fabulous party with no hassle—just plain fun. Email me today and order a couple of kits to have on hand or to give as gifts. Order $50 or more, ( before tax and S&H ) with or without the deal of the week and your name will be thrown into the hat to win a Hostess Level 2 Set from the Holiday Mini. Snow Buddies is one of the cutest sets I have seen in a long, long time. Don't delay this order will go in on Friday afternoon.

Part of the perks of being a demo is having meetings with your fellow demonstrators. Tonight I am going with my downline to the other side of the world and meeting up with other demonstrators. We are having a shoebox swap, we each made a card and then bring the supplies for the others to make the card. I can hardly wait. My card is a very untraditional color combo for Winter but I have a new spool of Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain and I love using it. The snowflakes are from Winter Post and the words on each snowflake are from Four The Holidays, a set you can find in the Holiday Mini.

When I saw the wreath in the SU! IB&C on page 92 I knew I would make one of these but on a smaller scale. So using the Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper and the Leaves #2 Original Die in my Big Shot I played with leaves and made this wreath. I held it all together with mini glue dots and just kept playing till I liked the results. I hope you found some time this past weekend to play too.

Of course when I start on something I often can't let it go. So today I want to show you another card made with the Sweet Treat Cups from the Holiday Mini. The stamp set I used is the Level 2 Hostess Set from the Holiday Mini, Snow Buddies. Do you recognize the short snowman looking to the right? He is the same as the one next to him without the bottom snowball!!! I used Tic Tacs as the treat in this one.

When I first saw these Sweet Treat Cups in the Holiday Mini I was skeptical but then I saw several cards using bird stamps and bird seed and I had to order them right away. So here is my attempt at a card using the Sweet Treat Cups from the Holiday Mini.
