My First Stampin' Up Order

I received my first Stampin' Up order today. My friend Lexy had been making all these great cards for me over the last couple of years and I asked her where she got her stamps from. I was in desperate need of new ink pads so that is all I ordered but I was excited to receive the free Congrats set with my order. There are so many occasions I can use these stamps for and I can't wait to break in my new inks. Thanks, Lexy, for introducing me to Stampin' Up! I have a feeling I'm going to be ordering new stuff quite often.

Happy Valentine's Day

I whipped up this card for my husband who has been on business for the past nine days and is finally coming home tonight. It was so hard without him around to do all the things he normally does and that's quite a bit! I'll be sound asleep by the time he gets back but I'll leave this out for him as a nice welcome home greeting. I know it will bring a huge smile to his face.
