New Cattys will be here tomorrow!!!

The new Stampin' Up! catalogs will be delivered here tomorrow just in time for our birthday lunch for a Technique Club member. The most awesome UPS driver in the world said he would try his best to get the package here before 11 so I can get them to the Technique Club members at lunch. What a fun lunch that will be! I made them all wish list bookmarks for their new catalogs. I think this is one of the best catalogs SU! has put out in recent history and my wish list is very very long. If you are in need of a catalog be sure and contact me to get one to you right away!

Happy Father's Day

My Dad is long gone and I miss him often. I always tease Bert that I am not getting him anything for Father's Day since he is not my Father. This year I relented and made him a card. I was blog surfing and came upon Dawn Griffith's blog and she inspired me to make this card, it is a CASE of hers right down to the silver brads. The front is brayered and has a lot of interesting lines and depths of color which do not show up in the photograph. Where is that photographer kid when I need her?

The base of the card is Chocolate Chip, layered in More Mustard and Whisper White. The WW layer is brayered in More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie with a little Bravo Burgundy around the edges for good measure. I used the 1 3/8" Circle Punch to make a mask for the sun. It has a little More Mustard sponged in to add a little texture. Silver Brads up the side, Inspired By Nature in Chocolate Chip and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and Bert is getting a card.

Happy Father's Day to all of the Dads out there.

Back in the saddle

I have been away from the blogging world for a while, actually a long while and for that I apologize. I have still been stampin' and holding classes and the Technique Club, just haven't had time for blogging. Here is a card I made recently that I really enjoyed making. It uses the Square Lattice Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up run thru the Big Shot.
