JUST BECAUSE

My friend and SU sideline, Lorri Heiling is at the Stampin' Up! Convention with other weSTAMPers, and I'm insanely jealous that I'm not there with them! I can't believe I'm missing out on all that Stampin' Up! fun! Lorri has called from Salt Lake City several times to fill me in on all the happenings - specifically new products in the new, upcoming Stampin' Up! catalog. Among many NEW products and stamp sets, some products from the mini catalogs have made it into the new catty. When I heard that the Tart & Tangy stamp set, Summer Picnic designer paper, and the Mini Library Clips made it into the new catty, I had to celebrate by making a card with them! I used yesterday's Sketch Challenge #187 for the layout.

RECIPE
Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Define Your Life
Paper: Summer Picnic DP, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, and Old Olive
Embellishments: Black Mini Library Clip, Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

Great card Nancy. Love how you put the cherries over the definition. I am jealous too and I have never been to a convention. My daughter in SLC says it's SU everywhere.

Great news Nancy - thanks for sharing that - beautiful card! I don't know if I'm so jealous ... check out Kristina Werner's blog (kwernerdesignblog - don't know how to link sorry) she posted a picture of the ladies going to lunch ... I have no idea how they managed!! Thanks for always posting great card and project ideas using SU products (my favorites!). Marta

Adorable projects, as always Nancy! Just wanted to make sure you know I had to switch emails & don't think I did it right, because it unsubscribed me, so I resubscribed in my other email. Sorry for the confusion, I just don't want to miss a posting!
