Do You “Get” the Tickets?

I’m finding that I have gotten rather addicted to the Take a Ticket wheel, with its coordinating punch, the Ticket Duo Builder punch.  However, after examining some of my recent cards on which I’ve used these tickets, my 11-year-old daughter said, “I don’t get it.  What do tickets have to do with a birthday?”  Hmmm…good question.  All I could come up with was, “Well, I just like them.  I think they’re cute.”  Doesn’t that sound like a preteen answer?

So, what do you think?  Do you “get” the tickets on cards?  Regardless, I hope you enjoy looking at them.

Have a good day!  Thanks for stopping by!

First Post

Well, I feel like I am one of the last Stampin’ Up! demonstrators to dive into the blogging world.  But I think that I am slowly but surely starting to figure this thing out.

A customer called and asked me to help her with creating a party favor that would be easy and inexpensive to make for a large group of people.  This is what I came up with:

This project was really easy and fun to make.  Enjoy your day!
