Stampin' Up! New Weekly Deals and a Birthday Card for Cohen!
February 26, 2014
Hey there! Just a quick post. It's 1:30 a.m. and I just finished my 2013 taxes. I am resolving and you are all witnesses: I. will. not. wait. to. do. my. taxes. at. the. last. minute. ever. again.
Monthly compiling and posting for me from now on. Yes, I am behind almost the entire first two months of this year, but that is going to be rectified VERY SOON!
ETA: Here are new Weekly Deals this morning for March 18-24:

I've been waiting to show you this card for several days. My grandson, Cohen, turned 6 on February 7th. This is the card I made to go with his presents, but I haven't been able to give it to him because we have not had his family party yet! I know he doesn't read my blog, and although we hope to have his party in a few WEEKS, I'm going to share it with you now just because I can't wait any longer!
I have been saying the phrase, "See ya later, alligator" to Cohen since he was just a little guy, and now he says, "After while, crocodile" back to me, so I just had to make him this card with the phrase from the free SAB set, See Ya Later!
This is defintely a one-of-a-kind card, but Cohen is worth it!
Here's the supply list for this card. You can shop for the supplies to make your own version in my Online Store. Click on any highlighted supply and you can go straight there too!

Of course you may use my card as inspiration for yours, Rebecca. I love sharing my creations, and LOVE it when someone likes it enough to be inspired to make their own!

This is a fun card that I am going to (if ok with you) use as an idea for a card for my husband. He loves fun cards. We have some alligators very near where we live and he sees them when fishing.

Thanks so much ladies. I enjoyed making this card, and yes, Cohen loved it when I finally gave it to him at his party last Friday night! He immediately started chomping the alligators mouth!

Cohen will love his card...especially since you made it especially for him!!!!!! Our great nephew's family party is this Friday evening and I did his card with the Dinoroar set - boys love this kind of card...so fun to make! Congratulations on getting your taxes done....we started ours (with our tax lady!) but are waiting for one more 1099 and then it will fly out....and hopefully we will get money back! Best of luck to you!
