Hi Stampers. I’m sorry I haven’t been around a lot lately.  It’s been a busy month!  I’m up to my elbows in packing boxes and fighting to keep all of my craft items handy and accessible. (Hubby thinks they could be packed.  But, hey, you never know when you might need that pack of faceted gems…. right!?!?)

It’s official – my husband of 27 years and I are packed up and ready for our move to Twin Falls, Idaho.  We leave Northern California next Saturday and are headed to Twin Falls in a 17′ U-Haul.  Most of the house is all packed up and ready to go.  My craft area is the very last that will get packed up next Friday.

Don’t worry.  This move is a good thing for my Stampin’ Up! business.  I plan to be much more active this year.  Our Stampin’ Up! year starts on October 1st, the day we pull into Twin Falls.  It will be a fresh start all around!

I have many excited things planned for this new Stampin’ Up! year and this new adventure in our lives. You may have already noticed the weekly newsletter.  I also plan on being more active on the blog and mailing out more cards to you – my customers.  I am also starting to offer more incentives and discounts for those of you who purchase from me.  You are gonna love it!

One of the things we will miss is our “adopted” family that is staying in California, they are Vegans and very happy to be living in Rohnert Park.  Home to the very first Amy’s Drive Thru Restaurant.  They serve organic and vegan fast food.  A much healthier version of fast food!  These cards are made with the recycled food containers from a recent visit there for lunch.handmade card made using the boxes from Amy's Fast Food restaurant Recycle Stampin' Up!

For this card I started with a simple Crumb Cake card base and added some designer series paper and some card stock cut with the stitched shapes framelit dies in Crumb Cake and Bermuda Bay, topped with a square cut from their packaging.  A simple sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink onto a large oval punched out of Very Vanilla card stock.  A Bermuda Bay scalloped circle behind it sets it off beautifully and matches the colors in the logo.

Guess, I’m now a true Crafter if I look at fast food wrappers and think – “Gee, I can make a cute card with this”.

See you Sunday for another blog hop!

Happy Stamping,
