Happy World Card Making Day! Happy Fall!



Today we celebrate World Card Making Day!  Make sure you take the time today, even if only a few minutes, to sit down and make a card!  This time of year in some parts of the country marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall.  Here in Las Vegas, we are still experiencing triple-digit temperatures (you'd think we'd be used to after 40+ years!).  We love the colors that are associated with fall and the amazing images of leaves, trees, and nature in general.  The colors are so rich and warm.  One of the MANY things that we love about being Stampin' Up! demonstrators is the wonderful resources we have available to us.  Each month, we receive a demonstrator publication - Stampin' Success.  It is packed with a variety of information that we need to know to conduct our business, but it also contains some great card and project ideas made by fellow demonstrators and company employees.  The first photo shows an idea that was featured in this month's edition by Lyssa Zwolanek.  We took the simplicity of it and transformed it into our own version for Thanksgiving using the Day of Gratitude set and our favorite Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  The original colors used by Lyssa were So Saffron, Cajun Craze, and Soft Suede.  Our version uses River Rock, Cajun Craze, Wild Wasabi, and Chocolate Chip.  Enjoy your day!
