Good morning?! Well, my day began really, really early today... I've been up since 3:30 a.m. and I went to bed at almost 1 a.m.!!! So not much sleep for me, unfortunately. My insomnia comes and goes, but I think since I started a new medication this week - it's back with a vengence! Who knows, just my speculation on that hypothesis.
Well since I was up, when it was available for viewing for demonstrators (2 a.m.) - I got to check out the new holiday catalogue. Ordering isn't available until August 28, although a couple of Christmas sets are available now. I must say that it's going to be hard to keep all the goodies a secret for that long...... ugh! So many things I need, er... want!! Well, I do need some as I'm planning a Halloween Party and need some stamps for my invites... and I don't have any stamps I could use - wink, wink ;)
One good thing about not sleeping is you get more things done! I went outside and weeded and tidied my whole garden... should be good for 5 minutes before it needs to be done again!
Well enough of my rambling on, I made a cute card the other day at my upline's drop-in. It features a bunch of new & fab goodies. I used the new 'World of Dreams' stamp set, on page 127 of the Annual Catalogue - such a stunning set, I just love the silhouette stamps since they are so versatile. I stamped the largest image in Black Stazon, then the leaf stems in Mossy Meadow, and part of the floral image in Tangelo Twist - I fussy cut them all out and layered on on top of the other.
The Thank you, is from the new 'Hey You' set, which has a Happy birthday, congrats and thank you stamp. I stamped onto Tangelo Twist, matted onto Basic Black then Whisper White... I added a couple of Rhinestones coloured with Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities. To finish I wrapped some Basic Black Baker's Twine around the card layers twice, then added a bow on top of the flower silhouettes. I hope you like my card today, and I hope I can get some zzzzzz's before I have to go to work this afternoon! Here's hoping :)
