Stampin’ Up! August Artisan Challenge August 15, 2009

Here is a card I created for Stampin’ Up!’s Artisan Gallery.  This is a gallery that ONLY DEMOS can view on the Stampin’ Up! site.  We, the winners, were given permission to share our work on our blogs.  They sent us “good quality pics” of our work that were taken at their home office.  Yep, you’ll see the difference of the pic quality lol. 


Again, who can’t resist this stamp set “Pony Party”?  With all of the images to dazzle up the pony, it’s a fun stamp set for all ages!   This set is located in within the Growing Up section of the catalog (pgs. 73-90)….and it features a button from Sherbet Designer Buttons Package.



This card and challenge is for the current promotion, “Just for kids, and the kid in you campaign”.  Spend $35 from the “Growing Up” category in the current Stampin’ Up! 09-10 Catalog—–GET A PACKAGE OF DESIGNER BUTTONS FOR FREE ($7.95 value).
