Today I got the chance to spread out at a really big table and create. Play with cards, ribbon, papers and of course, stamps! I made four cards today, but have two to share, one I want to play with a bit more and the other is not yet done. I was stamping at a friends house and when I got to the point of putting it all together, I remembered I had some wonderful Soft Suede DSP at home that would go perfectly with the anniversary card. So for now, all I will say is an anniversary card, pedaling past, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise. The background paper is one of the new colors coming next month- Early Espresso.

Next up, another of my favorites from the 2009-2010 catalog and returning next year in the 2010-2011 catalog: Flight of the Butterfly. I am creating another gift stack again and both of these will be in there! All of the stamps came from one set (how cool is it to create a card without having to jump from set to set or to be able to get started with a few purchases and not have to buy it all now to create something wonderful?) The scallops are from the Stampin' Up! scallop border punch.....I still can't get over the quality of their products and the punches are definitely no exception, clean cuts each time and a guide printed right on the punch to line up the design all the way down the page with ease!
As I sit and write, uploading pictures and catching up a bit with the DVR, storms rage behind me outside the window. I love the sounds of wind and rain as it rustles through the trees in the backyard. I hope when we move I will still have some mature old trees that will rustle in the rain and chirp full of birds!
