Our May Watercolor Workshop featured watercoloring with Stampin' Up inks and Brusho powders.
Our first card was inspired by one in the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog from which orders can be placed on June 1, 2018, however, I used a retired stamp set for my version called Fabulous Florets, isn't it beautiful!
Our second card was inspired by many of the Stampin' Up Waterfront images on Pinterest. This 2018 Occasions Catalog stamp set is a must have, hurry and get yours.
Isn't this card lovely! This card was also inspired by one in the new 2018-19 Catalog and uses the Graceful Garden stamp set.
Our last card features the retiring Awesomely Artistic stamp set, another must have, so order one before May 31, 2018
I like to decorate my customer order delivery bags and for some recent orders I showcased two new 2018-19 Annual Catalog stamp set bundles Sea of Textures and Lilypad Lake. This gives my customers a chance to see some of the new stamp sets first hand and hopefully peak their interest. These two bundles will be available June 1, 2018 from your Stampin' Up demonstrator.

I made this card for my sister and her grandson both suffering from this horrible disease. My sister was diagnosed with Leukemia two days before her 62nd birthday last year the progression has been rapid and she is now undergoing chemotherapy, blood transfusions and iron infusion therapy and occasional surgeries to stop internal bleeding. This last Monday, her grandson and caregiver at just 27 years old, was diagnosed with stomach cancer and will be undergoing major surgery very soon. He had been treated for acid reflux for years and was being evaluated for surgical repair of a hiatal hernia when they discovered the cancer cells in his stomach tissue. To add to their stress, he has suffered from IgG Deficiency from birth and extreme caution must be taken to guard against lung damage and infection.
I will never give up hope that we can someday stop the ravages of cancer and the toll that it takes on countless lives.
Please "Hold on to Hope".
