For The Birds For My Hostess Clubs!

A few days ago I had some time on my hands… believe me doesn’t happen often AT ALL!!! So I took advantage… I made a ton of cards!  In those moment when the creativity flows freely I run with it!  I haven’t used my FOR THE BIRDS set yet, and thought that today would be a perfect time to share the first project made with it. 
I am always looking for ways that make my project making time easier and effective.  That means I used a sketch and some color inspiration too… I used the Sweet Stop to provide the sketch and Dynamic Duos for the colors.
I love this EASY watercolor technique! It is one of the MANY techniques that I am sharing at the Pleasant Poppies Tech. Class this month.  You can get it for yourself if you CLICK HERE! I went with a major sized button from my clearance rack!
I doubled up on the cardstock strips and ran them through my Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder- which is one of my FAVS!! I added a little something to embellish… can you see it??  You know my cards really aren’t complete without BLING!!
I thought this card would be a perfect HOSTESS CLUB card too!  I am closer than I even have been before to earn the Incentive Trip through Stampin’ Up! Thanks to ALL my amazingly wonderful Hostess Club members and loyal customers!  I can’t thank them enough, but I am SURE going to try at this years HOSTESS APPRECIATION EVENT!  It is coming up in June and it is an event that you WANT TO ATTEND!
How can you get an invite to this event? Easy, you get an automatic invite if you have been a hostess or a member of a HSS Hostess Club in the last 12 months or JOIN MY HOSTESS CLUB before the end of APRIL, I have a NEW club starting in May- if you are interested in starting CONTACT ME!!!  You can see some highlights from previous HOSTESS APPRECIATION EVENTS HERE-
I don’t have pics from last years event, I was hosting it all alone and I only have 2 hands (which were completely busy!!) but last year’s was AMAZING!!  
 so others can see what they missed!!
I always go out of my way to pamper and spoil my HOSTESSES! It is because of them that I am able to do what I love- I can’t wait to share with you this years THEME… oh- but not today, LOL!!  If you are a LONG DISTANCE Hostess Club Member you get an Appreciation Party of your own!  There will be a virtual party of sorts for you.  I have special projects for you along with exclusive prizes and goodie bags!  Just cause you don’t live here doesn’t mean that you miss out- NEVER!! I want to spoil you just like my locals!
