For Our Veterans

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to share some of the cards that I did for my husband's veteran's group.  He is a part of the veterans, the 2nd Indianhead Division Association.  They are having a National Convention coming up in San Antonio, TX and my husband and I are going.  I wanted to do something nice and this is what I came up with.

Some of the cards you will see here are CASE'd (Copy And Share Everything) by some very talented artists and some are my own designs.  Also, not everything is Stampin Up product, I found some really cool paper that I just had to use for this occasion and ribbon too...

Hope you all enjoy and Thank a Veteran for your Freedom today.

Please feel free to leave a comment or contact me if you have any questions that you may need answered.

Ronald McDonald House Charity Event - Create for a Cause

My Create for a Cause, for the RMHC, was a complete success, thanks to my guests, I call my Friends... We had so much fun and there was so much laughter that our stomachs hurt.  I sold 10 sets of this Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the Tree Builder Punch.  $3.00 from every stamp set goes to the RMHC and I am very honored to help them as they have helped my family in the past.  My friends also brought a great deal of items for donations: batteries, deodorant, shaving cream, shavers - men and womans, shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, toothbrushes and snacks galore. You are all such AWESOME people!!!

This Sprinkles of Life stamp set (139971) is so versatile, along with the Tree Builder punch (138295), you can do anything with it... as I would like to share with you the cards that we made. Also would like to share the one card that everyone made that will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House in Milwaukee, WI. along with all the donated items received.   I would also like to share my Thank You Gift to my guests.

My Hero

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I wanted to tell you about my Little Hero.  This is my grandson, Dylan, he is the greatest joy a person could know and he has a smile that could melt your heart.

He was born with an abnormality called Chromosome 6 Deletion. This has caused him to be on a ventilator and oxygen. He has a tracheotomy where the ventilator & oxygen flow to help him breathe and maintain his life. He has severe scoliosis and has several surgeries and rods put in his back to straighten him out.  He is fed through a tube and cannot eat or drink through his mouth. He has had countless visits to hospitals with his longest stay being 5 months, 3 weeks and 5 days.  With all these things, this is why he is my HERO, because no matter what, he still wakes up everyday with a smile and is an absolute Angel from God. 

During his first months of life, we have had to endure many nights away from our home, to help our daughter/son-in-law and be with Dylan during many surgeries. The Ronald McDonald House was a place we could count on and if they were full, they would lead us to other places at discounted rates. Although this was up in Marshfield, Wisconsin, they now live near us and use the Milwaukee based RMHC if needed when he goes to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

With all that being said, each year, in partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), Stampin’ Up! designs an exclusive stamp set to promote their partnership with this amazing charity. They then donate a $3.00 from each sale of that set. To date, more than $1,000,000 has been donated from RMHC stamp set sales. Demonstrators also create cards which are donated to Ronald McDonald Houses to help families keep in touch with loved ones while they are away from home. You can also help us make a difference by making one special card to be donated to RMHC of Milwaukee!!!

This year’s set is, “Sprinkles of Life”, and it coordinates with a great punch called the Tree Builder Punch.  Come see how we can create something for the RMHC of Milwaukee.
Date:    Friday 14th of August 2015
Time:   6:00 – 9:30 p.m.
Cost:    $42.00 w/Stamp Set or $12.00 w.o. (if you already have it)
Where:  McHenry County Senior Center
              McHenry, IL
Door Prizes
ALL Supplies provided (excludes tape runner, bring your own)
Refreshments provided

For more information, please contact me at or visit my website

Must send pre-registration on or before July 31st so I can order the product and cut material for the class.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you there on the 14th.

Bundles of Bundles

Hello Everyone,
I am sorry that I have been away for so long, but I was very sick.  I am a cancer survivor and the chemo that I received during my cancer treatment has left me with no immune system.  So I was getting sick every 3-4 weeks with bronchitis pneumonia, upper respiratory infections, and many sinus infections. I did not have the physical strength to do anything, it totally drained me. They call this “Immune Deficiency, low IgG”, and I have begun Immunoglobulin Infusions.
I am now on the road to recovery and I am very eager to get back into the swing of things.  I did not and could not give up; the alternative is not an option right now because I have things to accomplish yet and cards I have to show you and deals that I have to give you.
So I am sure you have heard that the NEW catalog has come out and I would like to offer you this very special offer on the following In-Color Bundles.

Thanks so much for stopping by and hopefully we can get you what you need.  This offer will run through June 30th, so c'mon what are you waiting for.

WHO's Birthday is it?

Hi Everyone,

Here is a gift I made for my co-worker Barb for her Birthday. Couldn't pass up using these little calendars I purchased from a scrapbook show and some very nice Designer Series Paper.  Then I found Owl post a notes (not pictured) at Michael s, for 4 for $1.00 and then found a matching pen at Target in the $1 bins ( 2 per packet) and it was marked 70% off. Now I really like a great deal and it all worked perfectly for my gift.

Hope everyone is doing well and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me

Thanks for looking,
Donna Marcil

Hope everyone enjoyed their very blessed Christmas and had a happy New Year. The 2014 holiday season was very hard for me.  I came down with the flu two weeks before Thanksgiving and was very sick. Then the first week of December, I came down with a severe sinus infection and then again the weekend before Christmas, I came down with bronchitis pneumonia.  So I am looking forward for the New Year and a GREAT 2015 ahead.
