Christmas in.....

JUNE!?!?!?!   Yep, that's right...if you're a Stampin' Up demo that is!  Yesterday the new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog was released to us along with a few sneak peek items from it!  It' the happiest time of year!  Of course Christmas is a close second because you don't have to PAY for all the presents you get, hahahaha!  So, all day yesterday and this morning I waited patiently (ummmm yeah RIGHT) for the UPS man to drop off my box of goodies!  And SU, the evil genius they are put ALL of my products on top of that catalog so I HAD to look at them and oh and ah over them before I could dig that book out!  LOL!  And OMGEEEEEEEE is it fabulous!  It is my favorite catalog thus far and I can't wait for you to see it!  And you can order from it starting July 1!  Anyway, yesterday turned into a rather crappy day as my family had tickets for a Cardinals game and half way to St. Louis the interstate was closed because of an accident.  I have NEVER seen the interstate close and we were cutting the time close anyway so we didn't want to drive all that way for one or two innings.  Add in the fact that I had gotten about four hours of sleep since I stayed up until 2:30 to order all this stuff (LOL) AND I was hungry since it was way past my supper time and it was NOT a fun car ride to say the least.  Anyway, we were all bummed but now that I've got my catty I'm happy as a clam!  So is anyone still with me or did you just ignore all the blah blah blah and skip down to the pictures?  (It's ok if you did...I would have too, hehe).  Anyway, I promised some of my SCS friends that I would try to get something made and posted today so here is the first of what I HOPE is many cards and or posts that I get done today......

Now, should I be nice and tell you all the new stuff or be naughty and let you find the sneak peeks yourself????  Ok, you twisted my arm...I'll tell the supply list mmmk?  I have not seen a Christmas stamp in the sneak peek before so I had to have it since I LOVE Christmas.  This set is also normally not my style but I think I like it!  I have to say that I really do think that there is something for EVERYONE in this catalog.  I'm not sure if SU got some new artists or what but it's crazy beautiful and if you can't find something you're just plain nuts, there, I said it;-)  Ok, tell me to shut up and go stamp more since I took the whole day off to do just that....ohhhh, who's the nutty one now?  LOL!

  1. Love it! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  2. Told ya I'd be stalking! That is an AWESOME card!!!! Cute snowman. I didn't get the punch... but I just might have to with the next order! That Lime color doesn't seem quite as bright as I was afraid it may be. It looks quite nice paired with Riding Hood Red (another color I was afraid to use). OK, gotta see more from ya. Hurry up and get movin'! :D

  3. Love it. TFS a sneak peak with us. Caught your post on SCS.

  4. Whoo-hooo! And yes, I read it all, just savoring the moment until I got to your awesome card! Love that Santa!

  5. Oh my! I love that snowman! I wish I'd known he was that big because I would have totally gotten that set. Darn!

  6. Yes, Rita! I wished I didn't buy it later on yesterday and could NOT figure out why it was so pricey...well I was way surprised when I opened the box and saw the images full size, big! I'm going to place ANOTHER can too, LOL!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
