Cards: All Occasions

Terrific Trio of Butterflies!

The new 2019 Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration Brochure started last week.  There are so many great things in these two catalogs.  When you place a minimum $50 order (Level 1), you get to select a FREE item out of the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.  The second option is getting a FREE item once you place a minimum $100 order (Level 2).

Once you've met the $50 minimum you can choose any one of the Sale-a-Bration items that coordinate with the Gingham Gala Suite.  Here are the three items that coordinate with this suite.
