Last week was a busy week...... Home Decor and Retirement party at work

Recently Lisa called me for help with her Decor Elements order she placed sometime ago. I had never met Lisa (she had ordered from one of my customer's party that she could not make) but was glad to help her with her order and get it corrected with Stampin UP. When her order came in I took it to her house and we had a good time putting it on her wall. Check out the Stampin UP catalog starting on page 227 to see if there is something that appeals to you. I will be glad to help you install it.

This is a picture of Lisa measuring the vinyl. I have to say here, one of the best things about being a Stampin UP demonstrator is the friends I meet while haveing a great time teaching them to create and to find their creative side. Voila! What do you think? Don't you love it on her kitchen wall. Thank you Lisa for letting me share what I love with you. Retirement at work: one of our co-workers (Butch)retired last week and of course I made him a card (I work for the Dept of Agriculture in my day job). Since we make chicken farm loans I had to make Butch a card with a chicken on it. I did not have a chicken stamp so I used the Beau Chateau Designer paper #122357 Page 184 that had chickens on it. I did not think he would go for the pink background with the chickenwire, so I cut out the chicken and layered with red and black (he went to state so I knew he would love those colors) He looks at the Wall Street Journal every day so I made him an envelope from that. Sort of fit him. Now for the fun part, Butch has a farm and we are always teasing him about burying his money in a coffee can for his savings. So I got an empty coffee can and made this cute tag for it. He loved it. Last but not least another co-worker Susan made this yummy cute cake for him. I think she did a terrific job on the tractor.
