Dirty Roses!!


When I got done work yesterday at 5pm, I raced home (picking up Mickey D's on the way) to then leave again for Stratford! Well, when I got home I threw everything down on the table and grabbed the key for the mailbox and RAN down the street!! Now, you must know me to understand this.........I DON'T RUN. But I was hoping, hoping, hoping it would be there!! The neighbours MUST have thought I was crazy, but I didn't care!! I fumbled with the key, trying to get it open and when I opened the little metal door.........it was Christmas in June!!!! AHAAAHAAAAAAAAAA!!! I clutched the plastic bag to my chest and RAN, yes RAN all the way back to the house! I got back in the front door and Emileigh said with this incredulous look on her face, "Did you RUN?" and panting I just bent over at the waist and held up my prize...........the NEW Stampin Up catalogue!!!!!!!!

It is BEAUTIFUL filled with gorgeous new stamp sets, yummy designer paper and DELICIOUS new ribbons!!!! Of course I only got to flip through it briefly while I scarfed down my greasy cheeseburger because we had to jump in the car again and head to Stratford. But today (before I head to work) I will grab a coffee (or maybe a cold diet pepsi, as it's like a million degrees here) and peruse it's shiny pages at my leisure! Aahhhhhh!

Anyhoo, today I thought I would feature a card that I designed for one of my stamp camps with one of the stamp sets that did NOT make it into the new catalogue, Roses in Winter. *sigh* I used Blush Blossom for the card base, which I don't use often enough and Chocolate Chip which I use A LOT!! The roses were done with the Rock 'n Roll technique with both those ink colours. The little flowers were done using Buckaroo Blue (sniff, sniff) and the sentiment in CC. I sponged around the edges of the image using a cosmetic wedge and added some gold cording. Super quick and easy but very elegant, I think.

I'm off to fill my new catalogue with sticky notes....heehee....have a wonderful day!!
