Good morning stampers! Life has been very busy here in the Hobson household - we had a couple of family emergencies that have thankfully been resolved and everyone is doing much, much better! I have been able to get some stamping done as well, and have lots to share with you! Today I am sharing a workshop card I made using the fabulous new products from the Occasions Mini! This mini is chock full of amazing products, and I just love playing with them :-) And, to make the deal even sweeter, for every $50 spent on new product, you get FREE stuff from the Sale-a-Bration catalog - AWESOME, right?? 
This card is the one we made in my workshop last night -we had a great time, and everyone enjoyed using the fun new stamps and papers! We made this one using the fun set called Mixed Bunch! It has beautifully detailed flower images and they are all different so layering them all together looks amazing! I also love this set because it comes with a coordinating flower punch that makes cutting out and layering these images a snap!
 We also used the Enchanted Designer Series paper from the SAB catalog and holy cow! this paper is beautiful!! I will honestly say it is my absolute favorite paper to play with right now, and even better, it's FREE!!!!!!!!  Yep, FREE! The colors used on this card are from the 2012-2013 in-colors, and I love them! I never thought I would stamp Valentines cards with these colors, but they really come together and work! It's nice to not always use pink *wink* The flowers are done in Pear Pizazz and Pool Party with Peach Parfait in the centers. Both the flowers and centers are punched out and layered with dimensionals so there is lots of dimension on this card. The ribbon is the yummy Pear Pizazz ruffled ribbon - love, love, love this ribbon! So nice that is is already beautifully pleated, and it really adds the perfect WOW! to all your projects.
The sentiment is actually from another Occasions Mini set called PS I Love You - I love this set because is has so many sentiments in it, which makes it very versatile for many different occasions.  I just love the little cupid too - very sweet :-)  I will be sharing another project tomorrow that is made with this same stamp set - and yes, I used the little cupid, lol! I couldn't help myself!  I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the fun, new products used in my card today! If you would like to have any of these items, they can be purchased in my online store, or you can email me and I will be happy to place your order for you! Remember, with every $50 order, you can receive something FREE - don't miss out on this amazing deal, it won't last forever :-) I am off to stamp and get ready for one my favorite times of the month - my downline meeting!! We will be getting together and doing some fun projects tonight, and enjoying some wonderful girl time! If you would like to be a part of such a fun group, now is the time to join - with the $125 starter kit price and FREE paper pack or Digital Downloads for a year, this is a GREAT time to be a demonstrator  :-) I wish I could sign up again, lol!!!
