Thoroughly Modern Circles

Good morning stampers and WELCOME to the official LAST day of the Stampin' Up! Year!

As I look back on the past 12 months, it has been filled with many, many joys and amazing moments. It's had it's share of challenges too, but God is good and as this year comes to a close, I just stand back and smile because of all He has blessed me with. I know I'm not the only demonstrator who loves her job, far from it, but I can't emphasize enough how much I LOVE every aspect of what I do. And the fact that I get to work from home and be "Mom" and "Wife" as well as YOUR Stampin' Up! Demonstrator just blesses my heart.

I want to take a moment to publicly thank all of YOU, my wonderful clients and friends for making it possible for me to earn the Alaska Cruise for this year. Because of you and your support, I'll be able to treat my family to this amazing trip and get to celebrate my birthday on board the ship next year! I think it's gonna be my best birthday EVER! :)

All of you who are part of my Stampin' Up! family, whether you be blog reader, demonstrator friend, client, hostess, downline or SU! corporate, YOU are part of my Circle of Friends. A circle is endless, always coming and going around with encouragement, caring and love. I'm so glad to have each of you as part of my Circle - you make me smile everyday!

Hopefully - this card will make you smile today!
I found a sketch via a card that was posted on Stampin' Connection ( the demo only website) and thought it would be fabulous to use with the Thoroughly Modern DSP that is retiring today. We did this card in my parties last week and the ladies loved it!

I combined it with two stamp sets - Fifth Avenue Floral and Thank You Kindly. It was my last time to use Bermuda Bay before it retires as well today and it was kind of bittersweet. I love that color and hate to see it go.
The card base itself is Kraft cardstock (Crumb Cake beginning tomorrow!) and the layer is Rose Red. If you peek real carefully at the inside left corner, you can see that I stamped the flower image on the inside of the card too, just to dress it up a bit.
Circle punches in sizes from 1/2" up to 1 3/8" were used to make the circles from the DSP and I popped up the smallest one on a Stampin' Dimensional for emphasis.
It's a very clean, Thoroughly Modern card and it made me happy to make it!

Have a wonderful day today my friends - I can't wait to see what the NEXT Stampin' Up! year holds for all of us!

Stamped blessings,
