Betsy's Blossoms

I had a little time today to finally play with the new colors.  It was so much fun and I can't wait to play some more.  Here is the card I made.

Sorry that this isn't the best photo.  The colors are much more vibrant than they look here.  This stamp set is called Betsy's Blossoms and will be available in the new catalog on June 1.  I've used all 5 of the new In Colors on this card as well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sneak Peak

Wow!!!  Life has been crazy lately.  I use to think when my girls were little it was hectic, little did I know that the time of aging relatives would be much more so.  Last week we had my mom and my aunt into ER for UTI infections.  One on Monday and the other on Thursday.  My aunt ended up being admitted for a couple of days so that meant a lot of running, but fortunately the hospital is only 10 minutes away.  My mom is doing much better and my aunt is slowly getting better. These types of infections can really wreck havoc on the elderly.  Today I took my aunt to her oncologist and she got a good report and doesn't have to see him for 6 months so we are really happy with that news.  When I got home late this afternoon I had every intention of heading to the stamp room, but ended up taking a nap,  I know can you believe napping over stamping?  I admittedly was pretty tired.

Early last evening though I did make it to the paper and inks and made a quick card using some of my new Sneak Peak Stampin'Up! goodies.  I just had to touch those new In Colors.  Here is the card that I made. 

The stamp set is called Make a Cake and the words are from a stamp set called Itty Bitty Banners.  The DSP is called Patio Party and the ribbon is a new Stitched Whisper White Grosgrain.  Do you want to know the best part of all these goodies?  They were all absolutely FREE!!!  Yes FREE because I signed a new recruit during our recent Sale-a-bration.  Did I have to cut the banner out freehand you ask?  Well thanks for asking. No I didn't.  There is a new set of Framelits called Bitty Banner Framlits and it guessed it, the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.  The colors I used here are Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple.  Oh and the ribbon is so easy to tie,.  Not stiff like the old grosgrain ribbon.

Don't forget you've got less than 2 weeks to get those retiring stamp sets and accessories before they are gone forever.  You can place an order anytime on my Stampin'Up! website or contact me by phone or email and I can place that order for you.

Sorry this has been a rather wordy and lengthy post, but I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak.  As of now I have no doctor appointments to take people to tomorrow so I'm hoping to head to the stamp room sometime tomorrow.

Reserve your Catalog!!!

It's been a couple of long days the last two days.  Had my mom into ER yesterday trying to get to the bottom of some of her health problems and then today I spent most of the day trying to get a hold of doctors, meds refilled, test results, etc....

Yesterday I told my mom she should know I really love her because it was new catalog debut for demos on line and we could place our pre-orders for some sneak peak products and with that order get our demo copy of the new catalog.  Instead I was a the hospital with her.  Of course I was joking and I did get her to smile inspite of her not feeling well.  While we waited for test results I quickly placed my order, but didn't get it in in time for the expedited delivery cut off.  Oh well, I placed it anyway.  My mom is far more important.  Well this morning I find out that it did ship 2 day expedited even though it was past the cut off time.  So my order will be here tomorrow.  Yay!!!  I only expedite a couple times of year and the new catalog is one of them.

Can't wait for tomorrow and the delivery of my new Sneak Peak catalog items and my new 2012-2013 catalog. It's going to be a fun day if I can get some alone time. Have you reserved your catalog? Please let me know if you would like one. I'll be having a New Catalog Open House the first part of June for picking them up. Stay tuned for details.

Maybe tomorrow I can even get in a sneak peak project.  Here's hoping barring any medical problems. :)

Thanks for your patience

Stampin'Up! just posted this late this afternoon so I thought I'd share it with you.

If you loved the sets in the Occasions Mini Catalog, you are in luck! Because of the short time period between the end of the Occasions Mini Catalog and the launch of the 2012-2013 annual catalog, we have decided to make the carryover stamp sets available early--starting today!
The following stamp sets are available for purchase. We hope you will enjoy this extra little sneak peak to the annual catalog.

Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Summer Smooches Class Card

I know I had promised to post this a couple of days ago, but I've been sick.  Have a cold/flu thing going and I've about coughed my guts out.  I know you really wanted to know that, didn't you?  I've got one card uploaded and will try and do the rest maybe this weekend.  We are taking Lindsay to Detroit, yes the real Detroit not a surrounding city, to take a test for the State of Michigan for a possible job.  Even if she doesn't get this current job she will at least have this test taken and will not have to take it again for other state job opportunities.  We are really hoping she gets this job, but are leaving it in the Lord's hands.  He knows what is best for her.  So I said all that to say I won't have time to upload anything tomorrow unless I can possibly get it scheduled tonight to post tomorrow.  We'll see, as I said not feeling the greatest.  So many people have had this creeping crud and I'll be glad when mine is gone.

Onto the stamping project............

I cased this card from my friend Patty Bennett.  It was a simple card and everyone loved it.  Thanks Patty for the idea.  It's hard to see in the photo, but the vase was stamped and punched out with the Wide Oval Punch and then layered in the embossed circle with dimensionals.  We used some of the new Daffodil Delight Seam Binding that will be available in the new catalog debuting on June 1.  Also available will be the Summer Smooches DSP as well as the matching stamp set.

Don't forget about the retiring stamps and accessories that will only be available until May 31 (accessories is while supplies last).  You can shop from my website  You can even add Clearance Rack items when you order through my website.  Lots of great deals there.  Place an order of $150 and you will even receive hostess rewards.   Don't delay, get your favorites now before they are gone forever.
