SAB/BIRDIE BIRTHDAY

Remember what we were singing just a month ago? "It's the most wonderful time of the year"?? Well, it is now "It's the second most wonderful time of the year!" You see, Stampin' Up!'s annual Sale-A-Bration starts TODAY!



During Sale-A-Bration (SAB), it is the absolutely BEST time of the year to order. Why, you ask? Because for every $50 you spend (before shipping and taxes), you can choose one free product from the special Sale-A-Bration brochure!!! And who doesn't LOVE free stuff? Especially Stampin' Up! products!!???

Click here to access the Sale-A-Bration brochure: http://204.228.150.61/catalogs/flash/en-US/2013_SAB_2kt93k/20130122_SAB_en-US.pdf

And, be sure to notice that, in addition to all the exclusive Sale-A-Bration products you can choose from for free, they are also offering six items from their main catalog among their
free offerings, including stamps, card stock, buttons, the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate, and
a paper-piercing pack!

This year, Sale-A-Bration runs from TODAY, January 22, until March 22, 2013. So, now's your chance at "The best things in life are free!" Shop by hitting the Sale-A-Bration button on the
right side of my blog.

Oh, and while you're shopping and racking up all the free stuff, remember my 50/50 chart.


With each $50 you spend through me, your name gets put on this chart in one of the spaces. When the chart is completed, one square will be randomly drawn, and the person whose name appears on that square will win a $50 Stampin' Up! shopping spree from me! Woo hoo!

I created a special hybrid card for my niece, Marissa's, birthday, which is today. 


I created the main image in My Digital Studio, using the birds and branch from Cheep Talk, 
the word cloud from Celebrate Any Day, and the sentiment from Cake and Ice Cream. I added 
an appropriate Designer Series Paper to the background and printed it on white card stock. 
I then used one of the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies, added a square of Certainly Celery, embossed a background and tied a ribbon on the side, adhering it all together, resulting in a darling card for a new 15-year-old.

Smiles.
