Well we knew it was coming, but not quite this soon. Stampin' Up! has announced that the Sweet Pea DSP and the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt flowers are all gone. They have run out and can not get anymore. This is great I think, that we almost made it to the end of the mini catalog (which is Friday by the way), and now Stampin' Up! won't have a bunch of it left over. It also makes you realize if there is something you really like, don't wait till the last minute to order it.
So when I was making my Taken with Teal card here, I was scoring and folding the cardstock and then cutting it to the size I wanted, and then it was leaving me these fun little card pieces left over, so I grabbed some of my Sweet Pea DSP that I had left over, a quick stamp, a couple punches, a few little butterfly sizzlits, and voila how cute is this card? I think this might have been the first time I used the black satin ribbon. It is so yummy. I love black on a card.
Stamp Set: Oval All (I masked off the big flower on the stamp so I could glue the butterfly there)
Paper: Taken with Teal, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Sweet Pea DSP, Shimmery White, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Pretty in Pink
Misc: Scallop trim punch, Oval scallop punch, oval punch, Pretties half back pearl, white gel pen, Basic Black satin ribbon, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die
The finished card size is 5 1/2" x 3 1/2"
So tonight while I was whipping up this card, I had on Criminal Minds and Jasper from Twilight was on there, he played kind of a whack job on there, but it was fun seeing him on something else. Then the next Criminal Minds episode had a guy that is a character on TrueBlood. How fun.
Well I didn't hear from Oprah. She had some thing going on if you wrote and said why you like Twilight…blah!blah!blah!, then she would pick so many and then you would go on her show and meet some of the characters. I even bought a super box of Poise pads to take with me. I wrote my thing up (2,000 characters or less…holy moly have you ever heard me say less then that? NOT) and then the last sentence I said "if you don't pick me, you can bite me." Maybe she didn't find that as funny as me, I bet if her BFF Gayle read it, she would have picked me, I think Gayle seems so much more fun to hang around with ya know? Cause when I think of the words bite me, they mean vampire. Oh well, I didn't want to go to Chicago anyway.
Well I have to get a hair cut and Toby needs to go to the groomer tomorrow. The "salons" are across the street from each other so I try to plan our days together.
Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.

Can you believe I have this paper pack and have not even opened it yet!!!! I HAD to get it…always the way!
I just about shot coffee out my nose when I read your bite me Oprah comment!!! Personally I don't care for her at all. She thinks she is all that – and she never lets her guests speak – she asks them a question and then she answers it – shut up already Oprah – I swear if I was in the audience I would holler "let him answer the damn question Oprah"!

I love it. I have that pad and haven't wanted to use it. Hi my name is Carey and I am a hoarder of beautiful stamping things. Truthfully, your card has inspired me to get it out and use it. Thanks. Be sure when you get your hair cut you don't go to Toby's hair place since they are across the street. I am so warped I immediately thought of that when you said about them being across the street from one another. But I think you have a silly sense of humor too so maybe you would have thought the same thing. Don't tell me about Criminal Minds (putting her hands over her eyes and saying lalalalala so she can't see it). I have it taped since I worked last night. Thanks for the wonderful and usual inspiration. I love your blog and can't wait to meet you at convention.
