Class Cancelled :(

Well, I had to cancel my small class today because I am exhausted after being up all night with my sick doggie. She is still acting a bit strange (even for her-she is a boxer after all!) but her diarrea seems to have stopped. In case you were wondering what projects we were going to do today, here is a picture. Not very exciting - but I was having a bit of a creative block! I don't know if its the DSP or what, but I just can't get into it! Others are absolutely crazy about it - and I think its pretty...but I just couldn't come up with anything fun!
M & M's of course! Pretty in Pink CS; Real Red CS; Big Shot and the Bitty Box and Envelope die; Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon; Real Red 1/4 grosgrain ribbon; Sending Love DSP; Full Heart punch; Heart to Heart punch; Scallop Border Punch from SAB; Real Red Cordoruy Button; Well Scripted stamp set, I {Heart} Hearts clear mount stamp set (Did you know that until February 28, 2010, Stampin' Up! is donating $2.00 from each purchase of the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development fund? Awesome, huh!) and Real Red classic ink

Finally, a picture of Roxy resting.....pitiful!

Clear Mounts....Love You Much!

I have actually been playing with my new stuff the last couple of days and I am a convert! Stampin' Up!'s new clear mount stamps are awesome! I can't believe how easy they are to use and store! I am also very glad I talked myself into ordering the bundle of clear blocks. Well, as I said, I've been playing and a couple of days ago, I visited one of my favorite non-SU! card designer's blog and one of her Valentine cards (view it here) was so simple and clean I had to re-create it using SU! only. Here is my card! Do you like it? I thought it turned out pretty! And I was able to use some of my new goodies!
Kraft CS, Real Red CS, Real Red and Basic Black ink, Well Scripted cm stamp set (14.95) and I {Heart} Hearts cm stamp set (18.95) and last but not least, the new punches: the Small Heart (5.95) and the Pinking Hearts Border (15.95) available in the new Occasions Mini Catalog.

I think I need to Change my blog!

I am not crazy about my "January" look! I will be posting card a little later! I finally got my stuff! Whoo hoo!! But I need to work on my blog again! I just don't like it!

I finally placed my Order!

Well, I waited and waited and waited to place my order for items from the new Mini. And I waited soooo long that I ended up ordering nearly everything (Shhhhh.....) Well, maybe not everything, but enough that I qualified for 6 Sale-a-bration items. 6!!!!! You do the math! I can't believe it! (Well, I can believe it-I just can't believe I'm blabbing about it!) I am and always will be my own best customer. Oh, well. Let's just hope I can create something with all that new stuff! That's another story. I haven't made anything since Thanksgiving. I am sure that big box of new stuff will inspire me! I can't wait!

If you haven't recieved your new catalogs yet, just click on the pictures on the left side of my blog to download them. There has been a delay in the mailing of the catalogs. Click here to order!

I'll be back next week after Mr. Brown drops off my box! In the meantime, maybe I will play with my MDS. Toodles!

New Stuff!!!!! Yay!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! and in just a few short hours, the products in the new Occasions Mini will be available for purchase! I can't wait! This catalog is chock full of wonderful must-haves! The most exciting thing is the introduction of Stampin' Up!'s new clear mount stamps. The same great "feel" and quality of the standard wood mount stamps, but more versatile and storage is not an issue!! Stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy. And did I mention the price? Even more affordable than the classi wood mount!

Clear-Mount Rubber Stamp Features:

Nine different sizes of clear blocks available individually or as a discounted bundle.

Blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel.

Stamps and blocks are durable and easy to clean with your Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist.

Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not.

Tight die-cutting for easy image positioning.

Large clear blocks can be used to create collages or spell words with alphabet sets.

You really should check them out!
