Ronald McDonald Week #2

This week we are working on more Ronald McDonald cards. This is our last chance to make some cards for the Ronald McDonald House with our cute set this year. Hope everyone can make it out and we can work together to get a bunch of cards made for this great cause. See you all on Friday!

Stampin' Up News

Word from today's teleconference with Shelli is that beginning with our new July 09 catalog they are going back to just ONE main idea book per year and 3 mini catalogs which will last four months each. I believe they are going to have "different" hostess options in the mini's also to help vary the choices on those.

Sounds like good news to me. I personally liked the one catalog better and it is much more economical for us all.

Been a long time since we have had a personal downline meeting, but I know some of the girls are going to the monthly or bimonthly IHOP/Embarq gatherings. Please let me know if any of you are interested in having one of our own, and if so, please give me some date options that would work for you so we can see what works best for most.

Ronald McDonald

Ronald McDonald Event
– February 20, 21 & 27 –

This will be a 3-day availability event so that EVERYONE will hopefully find time to participate. The essence of the event will be a Ronald McDonald House Fundraiser. Cost for the event will be $40.00 which will include the current Stampin’ Up! ® Ronald McDonald Set, which is Say it With Scallops and can be seen on the inside back cover of your current catalog. For each set sold (or person participating in our event) SU will donate $2.00 to the Ronald McDonald House. SU has donated over $2,000,000 to charities throughout the globe. Let’s be part of it. At our event we will be making six card designs and each participant will be making two they can keep for themselves and the rest of the cards in our buckets will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House.

This will be a Sign-Up event so that I know how many sets to order. We will hold the event during our regular Friday class times on February 20 and 27 and then have an extra Saturday session beginning at 10 am on February 21 for anyone that could not attend on Fridays and wants to participate. Pre-Registration Required by February 6, 2009. Late registration will be accepted, but you cannot be guaranteed to have your set on the first day of the event.

All participants will have the opportunity of reaping “benefits” from the event as well. We have devised the following choices that you can add to your “registration” and earn extra goodies of your choice:

Purchase an additional $25.00 from the NEW Stampin’ Up catalog with your registration and choose a FREE set from a group of pre-selected stamp sets.

Add an additional $50.00 order to your registration and get a pre-selected set as above PLUS choose a current Sale-A-Bration set of your choice AND qualify to use the February coupon in the coupon book. Each additional $50.00 qualifies you for another current Sale-A-Bration set.
If you do not have a coupon book, participation in the event will yield you one.

Not interested in the event, REGULAR Friday class participation will still be honored at regular class prices. See you there.
