*lots of fun stuff to post today!*

so many fun things to post today!

Splitcoast CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge card, my one-year anniversary back with Stampin' Up!, Sale-a-Brate my anniversary with me by posting a comment and entering my drawing for huge (yuge?!) blog candy, catalog mailing address time, customer thank-you's time, ... *phew!*  let's get to it!

Joining in the Clean and Simple Challenge (CAS422 Winged Things) on Splitcoast Stampers this week,
I made a white-with-white card using the retired Swallowtail background stamp and LOTS of embossing.
Clean and simple, but lovely and elegant, like my mum who inspired it.
(I did a post a while back about white butterflies being my mum's "patronus" to me!)

You can't see it well (or at all) in the photo, but there is an embossed butterfly stamped onto the background layer which is raised up with foam dimensional strips.  Then the top butterfly was embossed and fussy-cut, attached with a skinny strip of foam dimensional.
The Swallowtail stamp is retired, but this embossing and layering can be done with most any "winged thing" :)

On to the next item on the agenda,
this Friday marks my 1-year anniversary being a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! again!
I almost can't believe it's been a year already,
and I almost can't believe it's been ONLY a year already - LOL!

Won't you stroll down memory lane with me?

Ooh, and while we're discussing mailing things,
it's time to update your mailing address with me for the next big Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog mailing!!
