So Happy To Be Back!

Oh My Goodness... last week was a rough week at the office!  While I'm used to long hours during election time, it seems the long hours came earlier this year.  8 a.m. to midnight... this girl is getting to old for this stuff!  ha ha!

I have to say though, being away from stamping for a week made it hard to get my creative juices flowing again.  Could be that I was just too tired and my brain was napping.  I had all these fun new stamps and papers to play with and I just had no gumption!  Ugh.

Here is today's card.  Fun giraffe (oh and the cute little frog on the branch) from Animal Outing!

Sahara Sand - 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
Share What You Love Designer Series Paper - 4 1/4" x 3"
Whisper White - Cut with Stitched Shapes Large Oval
Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon

Stamp the giraffe first and then again onto a post-it note and fussy cut it out to lay over your stamped giraffe.  Then you can stamp the branch and frog without them cover over the giraffe.

Thank you for your patience while I was away and so glad to have you looking in today!  Don't forget to get your June Order in using the hostess code 93P2YWYD to receive your free gift from me.

Have a great week!

Missing In Action

Well, I'm not really missing, I know exactly where I am... working overtime at the office.  'Tis the Election Season in Arizona preparing for the August Primary.

So don't give up on me, I'll be back with more new things to share, just as soon as I can get home at a decent hour and make something.

If you haven't already signed up to receive my posts in your inbox, you should do that and then you will see when a new post is made.

I recently discovered that I wasn't receiving my notices, so I signed up again.  I like to know they are going out.  When I did, I now find that my notices are coming in at the same time that I signed up when before they came in at the moment they posted.

Technology, right? 

So, hang in there... I'll be back as soon as I can keep my eyes open long enough to create something fun!

Casing the Catty with Vases

Isn't it great that our catalog has so many great examples of cards and projects?  It is especially nice when my brain can't come up with an idea! 

So today, I'm going to CASE a card from page 45 in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog.  Today's card was designed using the Varied Vases Bundle.  This bundle contains 34 Photopolymer stamps and a punch for three vases, one flower and a leaf.  I love punches!

My Recipe:
Pineapple Punch (cardstock, not a punch!) 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Grapefruit Grove - 3 3/8" x 3"
Whisper White - 3 1/4" x 2 7/8"
Whisper White scraps for stamping and punching
Embossing Folder - Petal Burst

Stamps - Varied Vases
Ink - Blackberry Bliss, Lemon Lime Twist, Pear Pizzazz, Melon Mambo, Powder Pink

Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon - criss-crossed behind the Grapefruit Grove
