Thank you and some stacked goodness!

I hope everyone had a happy Independence Day, and are having a well deserved day of rest before your week begins.  June 30th marks the end of the Stampin'Up! year and we'll be having a transition period before our new fiscal year starts on October 1st to incorporate the rest of the countries now a part of our company.  I set business goals for myself each year and really try to work on those throughout the year.  I wanted to thank all of my customers, downline members, friends and family for helping me to attain most of those goals this year.  Nope, I didn't win the Mediterranean cruise, but I was fortunate enough to earn the last weekend getaway event that Stampin'Up! will be offering. So, in September, John and I will be flying out for a long weekend in New Port Beach, CA - woohoo! That means a trip to see our oldest daughter Kim and John's  brother Chris.  I can't wait!!!  Thank you so much for all your help in getting us there. I'm also hoping to reach a big career milestone in sales by the end of July, so we'll be having some fun workshops and a paper purse class this month.  I hope to see you all at one of the events on my calendar!

My project today is a fun stair step card using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and Tree Builder Punch.  I used our new Delight Dijon card stock and Envelope Paper as well.

I used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp everything and the ice cream colors are Pink Pirouette, Mint Macaron & So Saffron. I colored the cone with the Dijon marker and added a Red Glimmer cherry on top.  

Here's a side view to show you the fun stair step fold.  I'm hoping to start working on some videos soon and will add this to my list.
