Stamp with Tess Tuesday!

I know I am SUPER late making this post.....I have been hiding out in my basement trying to ignore the storms that have been blowing in and out this evening!! We were pummeled by heavy rain, winds and the thunder and lightning show was crazy!! I dislike these storms...I am always afraid a tornado will follow closely behind!

Anyway, that being said....I have a pretty easy one for ya today :) I wanted to take a chance to show off some of the new paper, and colors that are coming out.....SO....YOUR mission, should you chose to accept it......show me your creations using something NEW! Maybe you have been hoarding some paper you don't want to open yet.....or just got a fancy new punch....whatever the case may be, I know we ALL have something that is NEW!!

So, break it open and show me whatcha' got!! And for now....I leave with this sneak peek...are you counting down the hours til the new Catty is available?!?!

Sketch Frenzy Friday...

Happy Friday Girls!! It was a nuts-o one around here!!!! And I am super duper late posting my card for this round.....so sorry to all!! I spent the entire day re-vamping my craft room and getting it all ready for the new color collections and removing stuff about to retire.....and of course.....LABELLING EVERYTHING!! (You all know me well enough to know EVERYTHING has a label by now......;)

Anyway, here is this week's Friday Sketch Frenzy sketch challenge....

And here is my card based on it!!

There are a few things I LOVE LOVE LOVE about this card!! The most obvious of course, is Circle Circus. I HEART that stamp set!! I am also showing you a sneak peak at one of the stamps from an upcoming set in the new Catty that will go live July 1st. But most importantly.......THE COLORS!!!!!! Sneak peak at a few of the new colors for ya'll!! Aren't they lovely?!?!?!?! I happen to LOVE this specific combo I used here.....I am certain it will make an appearance again!

Now don't forget to take off from here and head straight over to Tina Taves' blog to see what she did with the sketch...MY OH MY!!! Jaw dropper there girls!!!

Happy Stampin'!

Diggin Up Old Memories...

I love my scrap box. It rules!! I actually have it sorted and organized quite nicely. And my DSP is filed separately from my card stock. And I have ALOT of scraps.....trust me.....I throw NOTHING out....Lol!!

Anyway, I found this great retired DSP and knew it was perfect for my next card of the day.....so perfect I actually made TWO! Sometimes we just gotta go back to our old faves, don't we?!?!
