Update Tuesday - January 7, 2020 - Little Ladybug

Hello!

Welcome to Today's Update Tuesday!  2020 is in full swing now and I'm proud to say that so far...I haven't written 2019 on anything that I have had to sign and date!  woohoo!  
We all know that is a big win! LOL!  How about you?  What is your big win for 2020 so far?

In today's updates from Stampin' UP!® they shared three gorgeous cards featuring a free Host Stamp Set from the January Mini Catalog.  It is called Little Ladybug.  It is the cutest.  If you love ladybugs you need to earn this stamp set because it will quickly become a favorite.  

How sweet are these ladybugs?!  I just love them.  To earn these ladybugs you have to have a party with sales of $300 or more.  Then this set is a gift to you!  No tax or shipping either!  It's a win-win.  You get lots of product, free Sale-a-Bration Items, and a free Little Ladybug stamp set!  
Now is the time to stock up!  
Head over to my store when you are finished reading this post to get yours!

Here is the photo that Stampin' UP! shared with us today:

In this pic, there are dies shown with the ladybug cards.  Those dies will be available beginning February 3rd along with some other dies that coordinate with products in the January Mini Catalog!  Yay!  Unfortunately, I do not have the dies yet, so I used my paper snips to fussy cut my lady bugs.

I chose to make the card in the center because I love green and the Granny Apple Green Cardstock is so pretty!  Don't get me wrong, I love the other two projects as well but the center card is my fave.

Here is the card I made following the example in Stampin' UP!'s photo:

How sweet is this card?!  I absolutely love it!  I had so much fun making this one...so I decided to make a second one with the same pieces, slightly different layout.  



I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!
I live & love to inspire you!

THANK YOU!
