I realized over the weekend that I will be in town for the big fall stamp camp event. During lunch there is a card swap. I signed up and then remembered the card swap. I have a surplus of odd sized white cardstock that I've wanted to do something with. This was the perfect opportunity to use it up!

For the Creative Cat Crew Color Challenge #26, I used a new stamp set! I bought this set with Copic coloring in mind.

How time flies! I am a new Stampin' Up demonstrator, and I've been working on my sales strategy which is tricky. Because I travel full time, I had to build something that will work for my potential full time travelling customers. So, I am going to be the Paper Pumpkin fairy! I want to promote a product that takes up little space and comes with everything needed to be creative in one little box...

I had a request from my DH yesterday to make him six thank you cards for his business. He uses them to pay for services throughout the year. The last time he asked was the first time and I spent way too long figuring out what to do. I was ready for him this time. I made a quick video showing the supplies I used and demonstrated how fast they are to make when using my method. Video length is 4...
