Behold! Baja Button Birthday Blessing

A good friend of mine is having a milestone birthday in about a week. She'll enter a new decade of life...the 30s! I wanted her card to just be simple and sweet, just like she is. Some may call her "plain Jane", but I think she's a classic, elegant woman who doesn't fit society's mold...and doesn't care one bit!

I chose my favorite color scheme of this year--Kraft, Whisper White, and Baja Breeze. The BB button is corduroy and only available in the Occasions Mini Catalog through the end of June, and I threaded it with linen thread that SU! sells. Yes, Sandra, it was a bit of a trick to tie that little bow, but isn't it sweet? I think it sets off the card's sentiment quite nicely.

Here's the whole card! The birthday wish is from Full of Life, an all sentiments set I've really enjoyed. The DSP is from A Walk in the Park, a special offering of 6-12"x12" patterns featured in the Occasions Mini as well. (Click here to download a PDF version!)

BREAKING NEWS...June will be the last month when stamps, accessories, and DSP from the Spring-Summer Idea Book and Catalog and the Occasions Mini Catalog will be available. To "sweeten the pot" this last month, SU! is offering a great deal for those who host in-home classes or catalog shows.

For orders from classes or catalog shows or individuals that total $250-399 in merchandise, the hostess will receive $20 extra in Hostess Dollars. This means that instead of having between $25 and $40 to spend on whatever you've had your eye on, you'll have either $45 or $60 at your disposal! If the orders total $400 or more, the hostess will receive and extra $40 in Hostess Dollars.

This is in addition to the FREE Hostess stamp set(s) you'll receive. It's really a sweet deal, and I want to help you take advantage of it!

Consider how easy it would be to host an online catalog show. Simply choose a specific period of time when you tell your friends and family that they can view the online catalogs and tell you what they want. You collect the orders, pass them along to me, and you get the bonus bucks!

For my local readers, you know you've been wanting to get your hands on some stamps, and hosting an afternoon or evening of stamping at your house is really quite easy. Take a few minutes to put together a list of friends you have been meaning to get together with and invite them to join you for a relaxing evening away from kids, chauffeuring, and meal making! I'll do all the prep, and we'll all have fun.

June's just around the corner, but the month is wide open for this opportunity. Seize the day, stamping friends! Contact me via email through my profile, or leave a comment and we'll connect. This offer's too good to pass up!
