Finally stamping again!

My crazy week has ended, I am finished my course (YAY!) and there are only 1 1/2 more days of classes before exams.  Even though I have a TON of marking to do, I did manage to find a bit of time to get down to my stampin' corner this afternoon.  I felt guilty being inside on such a beautiful day, but I was missing my stamps and ink...it has been nearly a week!!  That's far too long and I often find my creativity is a bit stunted when I've been away for this long.  So, to get my mojo working again, I created a card using the sketch from this week's challenge at Pals Paper Arts.  Check it out:





Since I had Mr. UPS pay me a visit this week, bringing a pack of the new hostess-only DSP, I decided to crack it open and use the colour combo as the basis for my card.  Here it is...

Card for PPA98 using the new My Friend stamp set from the soon-to-be-released new IB&C.

Close up...sentiment is from the Perfect Punches set.
I just love this colour combo:  concord crush, melon mambo and lucky limeade.  It is so fresh and rich. This card features several new products from the upcoming Idea Book and Catalogue:  My Friend stamp set (p.139), Cheerful Treat DSP (p. 11) and the Lace Ribbon Border punch (211).  I'm including page numbers because Stampin' Up! has set Monday as the date we demonstrators are allowed to release our new catalogues.  Yep, you can get your hands on the new catty as of Monday, gals!  If you'd like me to send you one, drop me a line and I'll get one to you pronto.  Now, keep in mind you won't be able to ORDER from the new catty until July 1st at noon, but you sure can get started on your Wish List!  I sure have...mine is 4 pages long!!!  My credit card is going to get a serious workout come July 1st!
I'll be back tomorrow with some more sneak peeks at what you'll see in the new catty...till then, happy stamping!
