Can you believe it’s 2008? I hope you had a lovely New Year’s! My family and I enjoyed the amazing Ottawa Fireworks display downtown to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the choice of Ottawa as the Capital of Canada. I think it was the BEST fireworks display we’ve ever seen. Not sure it this will work, but, if you want to see it…click HERE to see a You Tube video of it. It’s worth checking out!
The fireworks were just before 7pm and then drove over to the Centrepointe skating rink for skating and hot chocolate. It was a really nice evening. We decided on New Year’s day that we hadn’t had enough turkey yet…so, we made another. Yum, yum, yum!!! I think we’ll do a New Year’s Turkey ever year!
I’d love to hear what you did! Leave me a comment and let me know what fun you had on New Year’s!
I love how she used a part circle to stamp the elephant on.

Thanks ladies for your wonderful cards!!!
We’re allowed to start ordering out of the new catalogue starting today at 2pm and this special bundle is on my "to buy" list. I’ll let you know some of my other favourites tomorrow when I can actually link to the catalogue. If you’re reading this past 2pm EST, you should be able to view the new catalogue by clicking HERE!
I have them!!!! The catalogues are here and it’s absolutely wonderful!!!! the stamp sets, the accessorries, the samples…oh my….I can hardly contain myself!
Stampin’ Up! had originally brought the prices down from the previous catalogue but, have also just announced that they will bring them down another 7%!!!! Wooohooo! How awesome! Because they weren’t able to adjust the prices in time for printing, they have supplied us with a Adjusted Canadian Pricing Chart.
(The hostess benefits have also slightly changed to make the first category $200-299.99)
If you’re wanting a catalogue, just contact me! They are $8 if you pick them up.
This lovely card that I received from one of my customers, Eraina Bronsema for Christmas got high rankings with my husband.
He actually looked at it for more than 1 second and had to tell me everything he liked about it!
Here are some of the items he loved about the card:
*all the dimensions that she added with the popped up snowman from Punch Pals
*the white craft ink added to the edges of the card
*the layers of ribbon
*the glitter that added extra sparkle
*the shading on the snowman
*and all the extra glitz she added with decorative paper, faux stitching, etc
I was so impressed that he took the time to admire Eraina’s awesome card…that I just had to share it.
Here’s a close up of her snowman!
BTW, Eraina and her husband own Singleton Lake Family Camping & Cottages in Lyndhurst, ON. If you’re looking for summer camping near Ottawa, you can check it out HERE.
