Those were both made from a single business envelope. That’s right, a regular old security nothing-pretty-about-it business envelope.

Wow! When I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator 17 years ago to get a discount on my loooooong wishlist of stamping supplies, I never imagined that this is where I would be 17 years later.

Yesterday we received our travel packet for the upcoming Mediterranean cruise next month.
