When we moved to Arizona from Nebraska more than fifteen months ago, we wanted to include cactus in our backyard. The landscaper refused. He said it was cliche, and he encouraged us to plant lantanas instead. (I really think he didn’t want to deal with the prickles!)
A month or so later, my husband discovers a teeny, tiny cactus growing in the front yard. After nearly being destroyed by the same landscapers, my hubby dug it up and planted it in this pot. He’s dutifully watered and tended it. Not that a cactus needs much water. But what do we know?
We have no idea what kind of cactus this may be. We can’t wait until it grows a little bigger.
In the meantime, I’m excited Stampin’ Up! is offering the Flowering Cactus Product Medley ($70) in its upcoming January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. This catalog goes live at 3 a.m. Mountain Time January 5. (I’m working to get catalogs in the mail and/or delivered. If you’re not currently working with a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, please contact me. I’ll send catalogs to you).
Come back to my blog January 5 for a link to the catalog PDF.
As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have the opportunity to preorder goodies from the new catalogs. I’ve bee playing with this one medley a lot.
Below, I’ve included five Flowering Cactus card samples and a YouTube video that describes the medley’s contents and shows ideas for using it. (Check my YouTube channel for other fun product and technique videos. I’d love if you would subscribe!)
