Potential Club Card

Outside my comfort zone... That's a great way to describe this card... Yet I sort of like it! This card is using a brand(y) new stamp set I got at convention... and I'm thinking that maybe it should be my club card for next week?

Talk to me... If you were/are a club member, would you like to make this one?

It's funny how my artwork can sometimes mirror what's going on in my personal life.

I had a whirlwind few weeks. Convention was an absolute BALL, and I got to see so many good friends and make some new ones too! While I was there I got a phone call for a potential part time DREAM job. I interviewed this past Monday morning (after taking the red eye home on Sunday), and was offered a position at the interview!

I quickly accepted my new position of Professional Newborn Photographer, at a local hospital near my home. I'm very excited, hoping that it will be enough to help my family and the GREAT news is that I plan to continue my stampin up business as well! In fact, I'm feeling encouraged that with a little less stress about money, I'll be feeling more and more creative and relaxed!

So I got a new job around babies, and I'm feeling very bright.. Guess that explains my card today! I would also like to mention that I found the sketch for this fabulous card over on split coast. What a great sketch!

While we're on the subject of being MORE creative!... Guess what?? My good friend JoAnne, who has been crafting with me for just about five years, FINALLY decided to join Stampin' Up! She joined my AWESOME team of demonstrators yesterday! Check out the cool box that we BOTH receive because she signed up!
JoAnne and I will get a kit each to create this AWESOME project, and it has a $40 value! Isn't that awesome?? We are planning to get together and make our boxes together. If you want to join us, maybe you should check out the starter kit!

It's on sale till the end of the month and it's only $99! Everyone who was here for my monthly team meeting is planning to attend convention with me next year. I came home with 9 free stamp sets.. Everyone who went received 7, then I got two more for awards in sales and recruiting because of all of you (and my fab team). I really feel blessed... and I have a bunch of cool new stuff to play with !!!
If you would like to check out the promotion, just click here to go to my website, or give me a call! I'd love to help you with your $99 kit.

By the way.. Would you like to see what JoAnne is getting? The kit was so awesome by itself that she didn't substitute any of the items out. But you may trade items in the kit for different stamp sets if you prefer. All this plus the FREE project kit = over $200 worth of products... amazing....

I LOVE this card, too, Selene and will CASE you today for my bed-rest-only pregnant daughter. As a matter of fact this is so cute I will use this for my Club card, too. I love the inclusion of the red top note piece. They need to see that not ALL of the Top Note has to be used. It makes an excellent embellishment. And congratulations on the new job, too! If you lived in Harlingen, you'd be photographing my new grand daughter next month! ;)
