Those of you that still consider the summer break to be a "break".....don't have my life. Holy cow! I have been SOOO busy! I know, I say that all the time. I'm sorry. I need to come up with some different words. Broaden my vocabulary....in my spare time. LOL
My kids have been doing the 'summer music camp' thing. It is awesome except that they all go at different times. So, I have been in the car for the last week. At least it seems that way.
I did have a couple workshops this week. Thank goodness! That is my therapy and fun time!! Here is one of the cards I did last night. Nice and Easy notes is a set that I have had for years! It is a great all season set and many people have gotten it as the starter set for their stampin addiction. I will be sad to see it go, but I'm sure SU will replace it with something awesome! For this card I used a base of So Saffron. The card opens at the bottom. The patterned paper is from the current mini catalog. I used the large corner rounder on the edges of the mouse, his mat, and the scallop border. If you don't know how to do this scallop border, it is totally easy! Just take the corner guide off your punch and use the punch on the straight side of your paper. It is easiest to do this with the punch upside down so you can see where you are punching and match up the scallops. The ribbon is rose and the blue paper is tempting turquoise. I colored in the mouse with the M3 and added a trio of black mini brads to the bottom corner to anchor it all.
The new catalog should be at my house sometime next week! I can hardly wait!!! I was going through some papers and found my wish list for the new catalog of a few years ago...it was $450. I noticed that I now owned everything on that list. I have a feeling my list for this catalog will be much higher!
