Where to start?? How about the beginning… that's where we are right now! That's right… July first was the beginning of a whole new Stampin up! year!!
Each year on July 1st, Stampin up! unveils it's brand new Idea Book and Catalogue. This year the Catalogue is absolutely exceptional!! I love all the new In colors, the stamps, the new scrapbooking supplies, the pattern paper, the new dies, and oooh the embellishments!! Wait till you see!!!!!
Can you tell I'm excited???
I have to admit….. last month I was a little sad to see many of my all time favorite stamp sets retire but…. I am sad no more as I ponder over all the wonderful new stamps in the catalogue!! What to order first ???? Decisions.. decisions…. Oh, it's going to be a great year!!!
Do you want to see the new Catalogue for yourself? Just click the sidebar that looks like the cover and you can view it online…

Today I received a Su order and look closely for the cute little thank you card that was in the box….
Isn't that little owl cute?? I can tell you it made my day to get this little card with a hand written thank you on the back from a Stampin up! employee. It was a great reminder of the impact of a hand stamped sentiment. I love it!!
Now on to today's card share…
This card features all the new In – Colors from the new Catalogue presented with the "quilted technique". The colors from top left – right are as follows:
Lucky Limeade, Calyypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Island idigo, and Pool Party…aren't they great?? I just love them! These will be around for two years so we will have lots of time to "play" with them 🙂
Do you notice the new ribbon on the side? It's called 1/2 " scallop Dots ribbon and it's shown in Chocolate Chip color. It comes in 10 different colors and you get 10 yards for $10.95. I may just have to organize a ribbon swap with all the new ribbon in the catty!!!
Also..the above card is a 3 x 6 inch card that fits great into our Small Open-End envelopes (6-3/4 x 3-1/2)
I know I've been away from blogging the last little while..but I have not been away from stamping! 🙂 I have a lots of projects to share with you, so please check back daily for some new stuff!!
