A Sweet Celebration

Good Monday Morning!

It's another gorgeous day here in our neck of the woods.  It feels more like a September day than August.  I'm loving being able to open all the windows and hang my clean sheets on the line. 
I'm also happy to have time to be back in the studio creating.  I had a lot of fun yesterday designing new cards for my upcoming Christmas Stamp A Stack in August class that will be here next Monday.  If you'd like to join in the fun, just leave me a comment or email me.  I'd love to have you here.

When the new catalog came out I went through it with sticky notes and marked everything on my Wish List page by page.  The stamp set I used on today's card was one of those sets.  I love it!!  Its called "Cycle Celebrations".  One of the other items I marked with the coordinating Designer Series Paper.  I had NO idea how cute it was until I had it in my hot, little hands.  WOW!  SO stinkin' cute!!

First, let me show you the card.....

Isn't it bright and cheery?  I love all of the colors in the DSP pack and I am really happy with the way it all coordinated.  Did you know that Stampin' Up! prints a list of all of the colors that coordinate with every pack of Designer Series Paper right on the back of each package?  It's such a great resource and take away all that pesky guess work. 

Now....Here are the stamps included in the 
 "Cycle Celebrations" stamp set
 (Wood Mount #130270/Clear Mount #130273)....

Don't you just love it??   Now...Here are the papers included in the coordinating DSP pack.  It's called "Birthday Basics"  (#130145)

It is SO pretty in person.  I just love it!  I know that I'll be using a lot of it since it will work for so many different occasions and projects.
Alrighty....I'm off to run a few errands and then I'll be back in the studio creating more fun projects to share.
Wishing you a magical day,
