A few handmade items and an Octi-Hi

Ok so first thing is first. Aren't husbands the best?
I have the greatest and most supportive husband there is!

I mean just look what he made me!
A heat gun holder.
 I've been wanting one for a long time.
I've shown him pictures of others I've seen and he said "I can make that!"

And he did! Yeah!!!

Happy Birthday to me!!! I'm a happy girl today!
Much to my surprise I went to put away a few things in my craft room and BAM I see another gift he made as soon as I turned around! Well he put chicken wire on the frame we've had for a while. But I'm still counting it because I wasn't expecting it to be there!
So I immediately put it to use. It's displaying all the recent holiday cards I've made. 
I just love, LOVE it! And my husband too! ;)
I'm about to show you something that will get you ready for the upcoming year!
Wednesday, December 3, 2014 was the Catalog Kickoff for the 2015 Occasions and 2015 Sale-A-Brations catalogs. I went with my Hoppy 2B Stampers group (there were 12 of us total) in Albany, NY. You may have seen me I was the one dancing (either standing or in my seat), I was also Ooohing and Ahhhhing throughout the two hour broadcast.

I'm going to warn you now, you may want to ask Santa for some Stampin' Up! gift certificates or Visa/MasterCard gift cards. There are so many new goodies that you will not want to miss out on.
With Sale-A-Brations you can earn FREE products from January 6 - March 31, 2015.
If you can't wait that long to see what I'm talking about, maybe you will want to join my team and pre-order all these goodies today like I will be doing!
Today's card is using the sketch challenge from Can You Case It (CYCI47).

I wanted to make something other than holiday cards since that's what I've been making lately. I know it's the holiday season but still you just need to change it up every once in a while.
