An Update ~ Plus a card from 4 year old Alia

Hey Everyone.. 

I hope your having a great night and creating lots of amazing cards! 

Creating cards with new product to share here has been a bit of a challenge lately... first we had shipping issues to tend with awhile back ( it seems much better now ), then we moved on to new catalogue releases with limited product, and now as the Christmas season approaches holiday products have been sold out as fast as they re stock.  Three times I have tried to get a particular suite... with no luck! 

I finally decided ~ no problem, we'll work with what we already have. I'm a firm believer in that anyhow. We have beautiful items from last year, so why not use them! There is so much pressure to show new product that sometimes I think we forget we already have amazing items to create with.

With that in mind, I've been at my desk creating some projects to share with everyone. Oh what fun! 

When what to my wondering eyes should appear? A little old delivery truck with a box of Stampin Up goodies containing a few products on my wish list including a brand new Suite of products that will be available in January. We'll talk about that a bit later. 

Long story, not so short... I have some great cards ready to show everyone!

 The day ran into night today and I happened to have my grand daughter with me in my studio (she loves when this happens ).  She cozied up in her space for some crafting while I finished up some projects. 

Her amazing delight over scraps of paper, glue and ribbon just inspires me. Before I knew it she said "Grammie, I made you a card". 

It is as beautiful as she...

And I couldn't wait to share it with you...
If y'all could give her some thumbs up, likes or words of encouragement in the comments below that would be just amazing! 

Then sit tight...we have some great cards coming up in the next few days!
