How about another sneak peek today. The images I used today are from a new Stampin’ Up set “Valentine Defined” that will be in the Stampin’ Up Occasions Mini Catalog that will be in effect from January 4, 2011 to April 30, 2011. This mini catalog, my friends, is jammed packed with yummy stamps. My current Stampin’ Up customers will automatically receive the new mini catalog. Please e-mail me your address it you would like for me to mail you one. Sorry USA addresses only.
Do you believe we are quickly approaching 2011. Where on earth does the time go. Wasn’t we just dealing with Y2K? LOL Anyway, my wish is for you to have the most fun, love filled, prosperous 2011 ever!
This is a photo of my Husband, Russ (on far right) with his 5 brothers, taken last night at a family holiday dinner. Love these guys. But, I bet the girls in their neighborhood ran past there house when they were young, LOL.
