Hi stampers! I'm finally back in town for more than a few days:-) I've been gone for almost two weeks! We were in Vegas for about 5 days and then I was home for the weekend and off to St. Louis for a work conference! I missed lots of things including my puppy and stamping:-) I've had a hard time getting back to stamping though!
Maybe it's because I've been preoccupied with the new holiday seasonal catalog pre-order! I always have a hard time stamping when I have new stuff on the brain! I could place my order today so I was making my list yesterday and today...I finally placed my order an hour or two ago and totally messed up and short changed myself on my free hostess dollars! Ugh! I'm going to try to call SU tomorrow and see if they can fix it...if I have time...silly lunch meeting at work:-)
If you'd like a copy of the seasonal catalog please let me know! They aren't calling them minis anymore because they aren't! They are BIG...the same size as the annual catalog at 8.5 x 11!!!! And it's full of awesome stuff of course....but anyway....onto the topic at hand....
I decided to play in the challenge over at Create With Connie & Mary in their new catalog challenge! I needed a sketch or something to get me started!!! You can still sign up for the New Catalog edition and get tons of great projects...including mine...which is coming up in July! And you can enter the challenges each week too...and make fun cards like this!
Stamps: Blooming with kindness
Paper: Very vanilla, summer starfruit, midnight muse, comfort cafe DSP
Ink: Summer starfruit, midnight muse
Accessories: 2.5" circle punch, chevron embossing folder
Of course I love any type of banner so I loved this sketch. I'd been thinking about blooming with kindness all week when I was away so I knew I wanted to use it! I love all the different patterns and the texture of the embossing folder. It felt good to get back to stamping!
I wish I was going to be able to stamp tomorrow night but I have a date with my BFF to see Magic Mike....I guess that's a pretty good reason so not stamp, lol! ;-)
