Hello Stamping Friends! It's that Wonderful Wacky Watercooler time again – another Blog Hop with an amazing 11 participating blogs! Boy, are you in for a great time 🙂
In case this is the first Wacky Watercooler blog hop you've followed, let me introduce the gang! We are a group of like-minded demonstators who have all gotten to know each other (some only virtually, some in person) through the demonstrator-only site called Stampin' Connection. (It's one of the many perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator – you meet so many amazing people, from around the world!)
We've decided that we like getting together (virtually) to create, and by the numbers of viewers from our past Blog Hops, we're guessing that you enjoy it, too! So we're going to start doing these Hops monthly, and we hope you'll keep coming back to join in the fun!
This Hop is all about Sale-abrating; that's right, Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-bration, the annual opportunity to reward yourself with FREE PRODUCTS just for making your usual purchases 🙂 Sa-weet, right?!
Now, the Hop runs in a circular fashion, so no matter where you started, as long as you keep clicking on the "Next" button, you'll go through all the particpating blogs. If you like to 'hop around', you will find a list of all participating blogs at the end of this post, as well as by clicking on the "Home" button, which will take you to the Wacky Watercooler home site.
You may have come to me by way of Kath R.'s blog – isn't she talented?! I just love Kath's style 🙂
Well, without further ado, here is my first offering for this edition of the Wacky Watercooler February Sale-a-bration Blog Hop!
With the exception of the cardstock and the doily, this card is made entirely from FREE products from Sale-a-bration! I tied several lengths of the coloured twine in knots along the centre, and then frayed the ends by unwinding the twine, for a fun look!

For my last project, I have to admit that I did stray from the Sale-a-bration brochure – only because it's almost Valentine's Day, and I just couldn't resist!!
Take a look, and tell me what you think!
Well….what do you think?? My boys are older now, but I just couldn't resist making them each a card featuring the super-cute Monster Hugs – boys & girls! You can see that the hands fold over to perfectly hold a chocolate nugget; and inside…
Well, I Freakin' Love You!! Teenaged boys will appreciate that, I think! 🙂 (I hope!) I scored and folded my cardstock into 3 x 3" sections, so that when it is opened, the Monster Girl opens her arms to reveal her true heart 🙂
