Winter Horses – Tutorial #293

dsc02270.JPG

Today I am getting all packed to fly out bright and early tomorrow morning for the Stampin’ Up Leadership Conference in Phoenix, AZ.  I’m leaving the house at 4:00 a.m.!  It is ruff having to leave Ohio when the temps are in the teens to go to Warm Arizona, not!   I have been so very busy making a ton of swaps to take with me.   This is actually my first Stampin’ Up! conference.  I have wanted to go to many, but my calendar just would not allow it.   I cannot wait to get together with so many talented ladies.  If you are going to be at the conference, please say hi and introduce yourself to me.  It’s nice to meet people that frequent this blog so I can put faces with the names I see.

Now today is the first day of the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration event.  If you are not familiar with it, Stampin’ Up each year has a period of time when you will receive a free Sale-a-Bration stamp set for each $50 of merchandise purchased.   I love free stamps!  This event will go through March 31, 2010.

Now let’s get started on today’s chilly tutorial . . .  . . .

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Wanted and Itty Bitty Backgrounds
