Open House Make n' Take

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
It's Day 10 of my Hummingbird Share and today I have one more AMAZING picture of my Hummingbird family to share with you.......
This picture was taken by my girlfriend Rochelle's husband Bill.  I think it's my favorite and I know without a doubt.....that is Gizmo getting a fresh little insect from his Momma Goldie.  I am so blessed to have Bill come over and take these pictures and I know I will treasure them FOREVER. Thank-You Bill!

My card share today is kicking off the release of the new Stampin' UP! 2013-2014 Catalog.  Here are the two Make n' Takes that the ladies created at my Open House on Saturday.......
This is the first Make n' Take Station......It was set-up for the ladies to make a bookmark.  They were going to be doing some punching (with the new Mosaic Punch) and also check out the new 2013-2015 In-Colors.......
Here's the bookmark they made.  Many thanks to my Upline Lisa Pretto for forwarding to me the template for creating this bookmark.  The ladies had so much fun creating this bookmark and loved using the new Mosaic punch to make it all happen.
And our second Make n' Take Station ......... It was a little 3"x3" card and envelope.  Here is that station all set-up and ready for the ladies to begin their stamping.
I gave the ladies the option of selecting either the new Quatrefancy Specialty DSP or the Gingham Garden DSP for their card front.  They also picked either the Happy Birthday or Just For You sentiment from the new "Label Love" stamp set.  We stamped the sentiment with Strawberry Slush ink onto Whisper White cardstock.......and used the new coordinating Artisan Label punch to frame it out.  Such a Happy and fun little 3x3 card.
Many THANKS to all the ladies that attended my Open House.  You made it a HUGE SUCCESS and have allowed me to become even closer to the Stampin' UP! Get Away Vacation that I've been working to earn. 
Thanks for joining me today.........My friend Rochelle and her husband are coming over this afternoon to take a few more pictures of Spike and Gizmo......I'm hoping to share some of those on Tuesday with you.  I'll be back tomorrow to share more new product cards with you.....Hope you can come back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
