Viewmaster Valentine!

I don't usually do a blog post on Fridays, but today is an exception.  My very talented and creative sister sent me this card today and I had to share it right away!





What do you think?  Cute as can be, right?  Now I have to try to make one of these myself...I'll share my card when (if) I'm successful!

Enjoy your weekend, and don't forget about Sale-a-bration, going on now!

If there is anything I can do for you, leave a comment here or send me an email.

Happy Stampin'

Stampin' Up is running a promotion from now until February 10.  When you sign up for My Paper Pumpkin before February 10, Stampin' Up will send you a set of 2012-2014 In Color Stampin' Write Markers for FREE!  And who doesn't like free?  The markers will be included with your first shipment.

If you have been thinking about My Paper Pumpkin, but weren't sure, some customers in Houston had a chance over the weekend to preview some of the new sets coming up.  Here is a comment from one of them, as relayed by her demo:


"She said she could tell by the monthly displays that the kits were getting nicer and the SU staff that was there told her that they really listened to demonstrator feedback and have started putting more conte
nt in the kits.  She was impressed.  And, she is a seasoned stamper and a teacher."

And the comments from the demos that recently attended Leadership have all been positive.  Every person says the new kits are much improved.....and that the March kit is not to be missed!

So, now is the time to give My Paper Pumpkin a try!  And to sweeten the pot, when you sign up and select me (Melanie Coverston) as your demo, I will send you a $15.00 gift certificate to use on any order you place with me after your third month as a My Paper Pumpkin customer.  Simply go to http://www.mypaperpumpkin.com to get started!
