So sorry, but my Stampin’ Up week was de-railed when I found myself with another nasty cold.  It came on suddenly Wednesday afternoon/evening and I just wasn’t up to stamping Thursday or Friday.  I finally managed to get this card done today.  It is based on the card on page 11 of the new SU catty and we’ll be making this in my SU class next Friday night.

guava-tall-jami-jan-08-custom.jpg  Card base is Groovy Guava textured cardstock stamped with the Petals Background stamp.  Card size is 6″ x 3″ so that I can get 4 cards out of each 12″ x 12″ sheet of cardstock.  Accent cardstock is Ruby Red with River Rock and Ginger Blossom designer paper.  Flower from Friendship Blooms (upcoming SAB set you can get for FREE!) was stamped with Ruby Red ink on Regal Rose cardstock and layered over Ruby Red cardstock punched with the scallop punch.  Sentiment is also from the same SAB set – I love that it is such a versatile sentiment that would be great for birthdays, valentines, get well and more.  Some Groovy Guava stitched ribbon and a button with some embroidery floss are the finishing touches.  I just have a few spots open for my class next week.  Let me know if you want to come.

People have been asking me about the Sell-a-bration brochures and when they will arrive in our mailboxes.  My understanding is that they have gone out Bulk Mail and should arrive any time.  If you are one of my regular customers who has ordered from me within the past 6 months you should receive one in the mail within the next week.  If you don’t have a Demonstrator and would like to place an order during SAB, let me know and I can get a brochure for you.

Hey if you haven’t already seen it, please head over to Splitcoaststampers and take the member survey (click here).  Whether you’re brand new to the site or an old regular the Admin Team wants to hear your opinion.  The survery is completely anonymous (it does ask for your e-mail to allow only one per person, but that info is not passed on tot the Admin Team) and it only takes a few minutes.  I’m so proud to be a Moderator on the site and love the way the Admin Team is always open to community input.

I’m off to watch the Miss America Pagent on TLC.  I’m dying to see how it goes with the *updates*.  Hope you are having a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
