Birthday Memories Suite

Hi I have had a few crazy weeks.  I went to Arizona for July 4th came home for a week then went back to help my daughter and her fiance move.  I then went out showing homes and wrote a contract. I created a meetup for my local area and have had amazing response from it.  So I have been busy creating a calendar and a Facebook page for my business.  

Today's card is the cutest little fox ever.  This suite features the neatest technique yet.  The designer paper and the Big Shot framelits.  The bundle has all three: the stamp set, framelits and designer paper for $62.00 you save 10% by get them through the bundle.  The item number is 145294.  Right now through the end of July any products you purchase over $50.00 you get a $5.00 off coupon to use in the month of August.  So you get extra value back! I hope you enjoy my card.  If you want to come stamp with me call or email me.  You can also follow me on Facebook at
