One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that you automatically receive the monthly publication, Stampin' Success! One of the features which I love are the various cards that are presented. Today's card is a CASE of one of these cards. I demonstrated this card at one of my recent workshops, and everyone who attended actually made one as one of their make and takes. If you would like to join me as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and start receiving your own copies of Stampin' Success, email me today!
A little tip on adding the yummy Dazzling Diamonds: Use a Two-Way Glue Pen!
Muffy and Brody swept the blues in their classes at their latest show in Waterloo, Iowa on April 23rd. The Twins assured me that they would be able to tell you all about it without any sibling rivalry. We'll see!
Brody: I get to talk first because it's my turn to be alpha dog. My favorite puppy friend was in the ring with me, but I was a good boy and didn't do a play bow or anything. And the judd was..
Muffy: Brody, it's the "judge". How many times do I have to tell you that? The Judds are..
Brody: Muffy, I'm telling the story, and in my story it's the judd. Anyway the judd was really tall and kind of scary, so I was on my best behavior. Lots of people looked at me before I went in the ring because they said my butt was getting bigger and that I was starting to lose my puppy fat.
Muffy: My butt is still bigger and I have a bigger chest. And I ...
Brody: But my head is prettier and it always will be. Your head is still ugly and has white on it. And you have those ugly white socks and fat feet...
Brody: Anyway, the judd liked me the best, and I got another pretty blue ribbon.
Muffy: Well I got a blue ribbon AND a purple ribbon with white on it, too, 'cause I beat out a bunch of other dogs and was named Reserve Winner.
Brody: Muffy is a preserved weiner! Muffy is a preserved weiner!
Muffy: It's Reserve W-I-N-N-E-R, Brody! It means I got second out of all the other girl dogs who won their classes. Like Martha Stewart would say, "It's a good thing!"
Brody: I know Martha Stewart. She is one of Mom's card making friends.
Muffy: Not that Martha Stewart, Brody! The other Martha Stewart that is on TV.
Brody: She makes her own dog treats!
Muffy: Speaking of dog treats, did you know that Mom is offering Dog Candy.
Brody: DOG CANDY???
Muffy: Yes. I heard her say something about giving away Dog Candy if people left comments on her blog. Here's a picture of it!
Brody: That doesn't look like very good dog candy to me. But there are some pearls. I LOVE pearls. They look so pretty on my butt.
Muffy: And look at that card. It doesn't look like Mom distressed it. Maybe I should help her out.
Brody: Hey, Muffy! There are some stamps sets, too. Remember when I ate some of Mom's stamps... at least the wood parts. Let's go get into some of Mom's stuff. I feel like chewing.
Muffy: Sounds like a good idea, Brody! I want some more of those sponges like I ate yesterday. Last one into the stamp room is a...
