I just placed my first order out of the 2007 Stampin’ UP! Fall-Winter Collection. Many of you have asked what is on my wish list (as I posted earlier here on the blog). Well, here’s my first order:

Dog-Gone It
Garden Whimsey
Whimsey Jumbo Wheel
So Swirly Jumbo Wheel
Bronc Buster
Outlaw DP
Le Jardin DP
Scallop Punch (getting a little tired of cutting that medallion out by hand from Baroque Motifs)
All the new In-Color Ribbon

I chose Oh, So Lovely as my hostess set and my free items were the Priceless Brass Template and a Signo White Gel Pen (can never have enough of those).

Now, I will patiently stalk Mr. Brown!

I have no stamping again today, and I apologize profusely. But let me share with you some marvelous cards that I’ve recently received!

This one by Joanne Grzelak (jojot on Splitcoast) is just so pretty! It’s in blues that I love and the butterfly image is just fabulous. Of course, Joanne always writes the sweetest notes!


When I was off traveling to Orlando, my sorority sisters (Sigma Phi Gamma, Delta Phi Chapter) were traveling to Portland, Maine for our International Convention. When I returned home from Florida, this card was waiting for me. Stamped by my best friend, Bad Bev, I find it so absolutely perfect for the occasion. It was signed by all my sisters at Convention.


Now for the topper! Once again I found myself taking part in the Twisted and Demented Swap on SCS. Love these swaps and always love to see what others come up with. Carole Burrage (TruCarMa on Splitcoast) was not in my group, but we decided to swap cards. I think this is one of the funniest cards I have ever seen and the combination of the background paper with the image and sentiment is just so creative, twisted, demented and truly perfect!


I LOVE receiving fun mail!

Well I just HAVE to share what I got in the mail today! This was just such a fabulous surprise and I am so impressed! Anna a/k/a Siberian Stamper on SCS has been the sweetest person. Always leaving nice comments and offering such fab support (actually she’s been following my work for a long time — and I so appreciate it)! So today I go to the mailbox and look what Anna has sent me! WOW even the envelopes are a work of art!


Anna thank you so much for thinking of me and you can SMAK me anytime!

I’ve received some Happy Mail over the last couple of weeks, and thought I would share with you what I received.

The first card is from my good friend Julie Buhler (a/k/a reneejul1). I’ve tried to work with the big flower and it always seems to fail. Julie just has a touch with it and I am so envious!

The next card is from another fellow stalker and blogging bud, Juliana (a/k/a Julesiana). I love the size of this card! She wrote the sweetest note and actually said she was intimidated to send me a card – she should be, she does fabulous work!!!!!


Thank you girls! You really did brighten my day! Oh and I added my watermark not to take credit, but just so there was something on there (if you KWIM)!
