The end has come....


The end of the Stampin' Up! year, that is. It is weird this year. Because of the new catalog schedule, it doesn't 'feel' like the end of the year, but it is. Tomorrow is a whole new year. We should have a party! LOL Not really. But it is time to re-evaluate my business and set some new goals. I am a firm believer in goals. You aren't going to get anywhere if you don't have a destination in mind. So, this year, I plan to do a bit more with the Stampin' world and build my business back up. I've let it slip just a bit because other things in my life were more important, like,... homeschooling three teenagers! We still don't know what they are going to do in the fall, but I feel like I can handle it a bit better now with some experience under my belt. ( hahahaha!!)
Anyway, in honor the the end of the SU year and the upcoming new catalog, I am featuring a card made with a soon to be retired set, Just Like You. This was our Ronald McDonald House set this year and, I really liked it! In the past, our RMHC sets were small and not totally something I 'wanted', but more...something I felt I had to buy to be supportive. This set I really did like and I really did/do use! I will be sad to see it go but excited to see what our new set looks like.
Supplies: Purely Pomegranate, pretty in pink and whisper white cardstock
Summer Picnic designer paper, celery ink and grosgrain, 3-flower punch, scallop punch, Olive mini brads, one really large pink brad from American Crafts, clear stickles.

Wow! Homeschooling? 3 teens? You are definately a brave one!

Awesome card! Especially since I just got this set before the catalog retired. Thanks for the inspiration!
