Big Top Birthday

Hello and Happy Monday!
Thankful for a good weekend!
The DIVA girls from my team of Stamped for Success Stampers came over Friday night and we stamped some fun cards and enjoyed dinner together.
Saturday night my man and I finally had a real date night!  Ahhhhh...sitting over a hot meal and actually eating it before it turns cold...all while just chatting and catching up on life.  He's been traveling the last week and will be again this week while I'm at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference in TX. 
Not use to being separated so much. 
So it was absolutely awesome to be together...
At Leadership this week I'll be swamping cards with other demonstrators so I can bring home some great ideas for everyone!
Here is my swap...
I purchased the Big Top Birthday Designer Paper months ago
and still hadn't pulled it out.
Perfect DSP for a little bit of cheerfulness! 
In the original photo you couldn't tell but look at the embossed stripes on the card. 
Aren't they fun?
Definitely adds to the plain 'ole Whisper White cardstock
So along with the Big Top Product Suite from Stampin' Up! comes this great stamp set called Sweets for the Sweet
Fun stamp set, huh?
Well, I was intent on using it, but sure didn't have it!
So...guess where I turned to?
You betcha!
My Digital Studio
This set with coordinating embellishments didn't come with the original software since Stampin' Up! just came out with it last year so I went to my online store HERE and purchased this fabulous embellishment kit for only $3.95.
It has over 55 embellishments and I was able to
print the pinwheels in a larger size perfect for my card!
I lined up 4 pinwheels along the top of an 8-1/2"x11" project in MDS and
printed a full page of them. 
I loved how it turned out!

Remember to always sign in as a returning customer
or new customer when visiting my online store. 
You'll receive the "Preferred Price" versus the online price SU charges
when you don't use a demonstrator.

Happy Stampin' to you today!
