Filming for a Video Contest

We spent some hilarious hours in Kelowna today filming for a Stampin' Up promotional video that we hope to enter in a contest at Convention in July!  The contents are top secret, but I promise to post the video once the contest is over.  Suffice it to say that we had many laughs, and great dramatic and voice skills were put to good use! (NOT, I might add, by me!  I was a production assistant!)

The weather was beautiful, which only served to highlight the terrible weather and floods in Calgary, which are heading downstream to Medicine Hat as well.  But it is important to retain your sense of humour, even in a crisis, and some Albertans have posted this photo:

This is the new business footwear for all professional women in Calgary for the next few days and weeks.  Still have Calgarians and other Albertans affected in our prayers, hoping that the water will recede and clean up will go smoothly.

It's Monday and time for another Dynamic Duos challenge and this time I could pair it with The Paper Players Challenge # 151, because one was a colour challenge and one was a sketch.

 Here's the Dynamic Duo's #58  Challenge logo:

It's a monochromatic palette using Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze, and I added some neutral Crumb Cake, and Whisper White.  The Paper Player's sketch is simple but effective:

  • It's my first time using the new Flower Shop Stamp set and oh, what a versatile set it is!  Every art style you could imagine and all coordinate with the new Pansy Punch.  In fact you can buy the stamp set and the punch as a bundle and save 15%!
  • I love the new Designer Series Paper Stacks, because you can get four different designs for every colour in the catalogue!  If some of the other DSP's don't have the colour you're looking for, the Paper Stacks will.
  • I'm so glad that the Tea Lace Paper Doilies found their way into the new catalogue!  They add just the right touch to so many card styles.
  • I'm not sure if that bit of 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon is Tangerine Tango or Pumpkin Pie, but I think it's the former.  For some reason, I found it on a spool labeled Pool Party???
  • The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen and is stamped in Cajun Craze on the doily.
  • I did some stitching around the edges, but I needed a darker colour for it to show up better.

I've already received several orders for the Mystery Hostess  and $50 Shopping Spree contest  so already the rewards are building!  The last time I had a Mystery Hostess contest, the winner found herself picking out $90 worth of free Stampin' Up products and 1 item at 50% off.  It is well worth your while to enter.  Just phone or email me your order by  Thursday, June 27 and you are entered in the Mystery Hostess contest.  If your order is $50 or more, you will also be entered into the $50 shopping spree and get extra entrees into the Mystery Hostess Contest, 1 entry for every $50 you spend.

You can also go to my On-line Store and shop on your own.  Just make sure you enter the ALL IMPORTANT Hostess Code - DSXVJXEY  on the page that comes up after entering your first item.  The box is found on the bottom left of the page right by the box that says APPLY.  Once you press APPLY, you should see my name as the hostess, but that will change on June 28 when I draw for the winner.  It could be YOU, so get your order to me as soon as possible.
