Wooohooo….check out what I got in the mail today….a swap from Shelli Gardner, the Cofounder and CEO of Stampin’ Up! This adorable tag made my day. Shelli made them for all the Founder’s Circle Trip Achievers. (The top demonstrators in Canada and the US received a Free trip to Lake Powell, Arizona for 5 days.) If you want to see what we did and saw on this trip…you can find my pictures from my trip HERE. We were supposed to receive this adorable tag while on the trip, but, unfortunetely the tags made it onto only the first bus on the last morning…so, they mailed them to us instead- how nice to receive something special in the mail! Here’s a cute photo of Shelli making her swaps. It’s so nice to know we’re not the only ones not having our swaps done till the last minute. 🙂 Happy Stamping! Josee www.stampingjo.com
Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! (Canada) On Sunday, my family enjoyed a wonderful Turkey Dinner out…with wayyyyyy to much chocolate cake for dessert and the next morning went out for a delicious brunch at my step-parents home. Again….way too much yummy food! What is it about holidays and food?!

Here’s a little comedy on Thanksgiving….my husband and I had a laugh watching this video and thought I’d share it with all of you!
It is a Man-Made card video clip. He uses a circular saw to cut the cardstock. That gives you some idea on the tone of the video.
Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

On Thursday, we had our quarterly Diva Night for my team, the INKredible Canadian Stampers. Demonstrators get to earn this fun event through their sales and those who earn it all get to enjoy stamping, business sharing, and best of all SPA TREATMENTS!!! My toes are loving me now, there are so pretty-in-pink!!!! Edited to say: I forgot to mention…we lost power about half way through and had to stamp by candle-light…what an adventure!!! We had alot of fun!
ok…back to stamping! Tracie brought us this cute Witch Shoe as a Make and Take.
Isn’t it adorable using our Creepy Crawly Designer Paper. This double sided papers is absolutely perfect for your Halloween projects and scrapbook pages!
Hope you’re having a HAPPY WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!!!
This card was made by my very talented downline, Heather Fosbery. She first found it on SCS and tweaked the design to make it “her own”…isn’t it lovely!?
It’s hard to see from the scan, but, there’s a vellum overlay as the top layer where the “Peace, Love, Joy” was stamped. I’m thinking of using this design in my next Christmas Card Class.
Colours: Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Very Vanilla
Enjoy! Josee Smuck
