Happy Friday all!! Whew! Busy busy week here for me but I have gotten SOooooooo much done!!! Tonight is the start of my workshop marathon, LOL! I have one tonight, two tomorrow, and one Sunday! It is a lot of work but I know it will be fun and hey, it means I get to stamp ALL weekend long, whoooohooooo!  I wanted to quickly share the make and take card I had for my downline at our meeting on Tuesday.  Since we were concentrating on promoting the upcoming holiday mini on September 1st, I made my card using those new products.  It is simple but cute and they seemed to really like it! I love those gals, they totally make me smile and I look forward to seeing them each and every meeting! Next month we are going to do a shoebox swap and a potluck dinner - too too fun!!!!  So, if you are looking for a fun group of gals to belong to and want to become a demonstrator, then you should join my team!!! We have the best time together!!!!! Now, on to the card!  I am loving the colors in the new Candycane Christmas designer paper - such fun, nontraditional holiday colors that really make each project soooo stinkin' cute!  I love using pink on my cards so Pirouette Pink was used here as the base of this card which I embossed using the Dots embossing Folder - super cute against the dots in the DSP :-)  The stamp set is called Merry Crittermas and I just love all the adorable little images in this set! Isn't this beaver just darling?  I accented him with some stampin' write markers because no animal should have to appear naked, LOL!  The DSP is cut using the Top Note Die on the Big Shot - still one of my most favorite dies to use!  And, I used those sweet little bitty punches and buttons to add some accents to my card.  Lastly, some Certainly Celery thin grosgrain ribbon and you have this card all done! Easy to put together but sure to bring a smile to someone's face :-)  Thanks for stopping by today - as you can imagine, I have TONS of stuff still to do before my workshop tonight so I am outta here but I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by to see me - I love all of your comments, they really make my day!!! See ya Monday!!!!
