Reason to Smile Blog Hop

Hi, everyone!  If you haven't heard already, Stampin' Up! is having an awesome promotion.  For every $50 that you spend (before shipping and taxes) you can purchase the Reason To Smile stamp set for only $5. This exclusive set can only be purchased during the month of July.

To celebrate the promotion, a few of my fellow demonstrators are hosting a Reason to Smile Blog Hop.  Here's what I created:

Inspiration for this card came from several demonstrators.  The fun thing about being a demonstrator is that we've got access to plenty of samples.  In fact, I've compiled over 40 different samples using the Reason to Smile stamp set.  I will give all of my customers a copy of these photos when they purchase Reason to Smile set from me.  (Demonstrators, drop me an email and I'll send it to you.)

Stay tuned for a few more samples using this great set.  I may have an August surprise for a special viewer.
