Yup. The big FOUR-OH. That's today, June 12. It's been a good celebration so far, with getting pedicures with four wonderful girlfriends Sunday, and getting presents from friends who are also customers Monday night. :)
This card sample is from my 10/10/10 class Monday night, too! Thanks to Melissa, my downline and one of my awesome girlfriends, for the oval punches - this is using the large oval, and the 1-1/4: circle punch. The "happy" is from Polka Dots & Paisley. Colors of card stock are Garden Green, YoYo Yellow, and Creamy Caramel. We dragged the YoYo Yellow through a Summer Sun ink pad, and the Creamy Caramel through a Close to Cocoa ink pad, after we'd wadded each punch up and straightened it out again. I just think this is too cute - and hardly any stamping, although the little stamping IS embossed with the orange EP from the Brights EP Stack.
I am SOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to the new Idea Book & Catalog!!! We keep getting small hints of what will be in the accessories section - like a new scallop circle punch, and dyable flowers - that make me SURE the best are yet to be shown. AUGH!!!!!!!! They're such TEASES at Stampin' Up! :D
Well, I'll post on Wednesday what we did for my birthday. Ken's already told me the food plan, and I must say, it's a good one. :D Don't forget, you can still email me a file of a birthday card you've stamped until MIDNIGHT CENTRAL TIME JUNE 12!!!! Email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, OK? I'd LOVE for you to win my contest!!!
Talk to you Wednesday. :) Have a wonderful day!
