I'm black and blue from PINCHING MYSELF, because today is the day! We hop on the boat here in Barcelona, Spain today and start the trip of a lifetime, first on the cruise ship bopping around the Western Mediterranean and then on our own for a week in Venice, Florence and Rome. And it's all because of you, you amazing customer friends. Thank you SO much for making it possible for me to gift this trip to Mike.
I'll ask one more thing of you, friends, and that is that you pray for safety, good health, and that we don't get lost! Oh, and for Mike's parents and my parents, who are flying in to stay in our house with the kids so that they can finish out their school year without disruption. Wasn't that amazing? I really am so blessed.
To celebrate our embarkation day, I made some more little Swirly Bird boat cards from scraps. I love this little boat!
Suggested Color Combination:
I'm going to UNPLUG & ENJOY the trip, so if I don't respond to messages, just know I'll catch up as quickly as possible when I'm back on American soil. In the mean time, you can call 1-800 STAMP-UP for help with anything. And I'll be sharing pictures whenever we have free wifi, I'm sure, so be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook to see where we're traveling to that day--we'll be seven hours ahead of the time back home.
The new catalog will begin while I'm gone, so just be aware of that. May 31st is the last day to order from the 2015-16 Catalog, and on June 1st you can starting ordering from the new book. I will try to get online and post the link to the PDF so you can see it even if you did not have one mailed to you last month or pick one up at my house. It's not too late to get one! Just email me and I'll send you one Priority Mail as soon as I get back. Lyssa @songofmyheartstampers.com
I've scheduled a few fun surprises in advance so don't think I've left you without inspiration for the next two weeks! You'll want to check in regularly to see what I've cooked up with my demonstrator sneak-peek order. I'm having WAY too much fun. Thank you so much for "playing" with me. Our friendship has been a delightful surprise and blessing in my life, and I know your hearts are with me as I go enjoy the trip WE earned together for my well-deserving hubby. Bless you for that.
I am so very excited for you! I've been praying for you both! Lots of love!

Lyssa, I am not one of your "official downline" or even one of your customers but I do count myself among your biggest fans on the demo side and I am so thrilled that you and your DH will be enjoying such a wonderful "trip of a lifetime"....I laugh when I hear people say "free trip" because you have worked very hard for it and deserve every minute of joy it brings you! Safe travels and will look forward to reading your updates and traveling along with all my friends on the cruise! Jan Hoyt
