I am so excited for you to see what Stampin’ Up Only Challenges has for you this week!  A fun theme that we can all join in on….For the Birds!  I didn’t realize how many cool birds SU has until I started looking at this challenge.  You have almost unlimited style choices.

I chose to pull out Betsy’s Blossoms again since I seem to just be obsessed with this stamp set.  The bold images combined with the Floral District DSP are so summer-like!  For this one, I also pulled out a brand new toy…um, product…from Stampin’ Up!  The Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack (p. 181…go take a look) is awesome!  True to Stampin’ Up form, they coordinated this tool with a number of different punches and dies to create a super easy way to add another layer of texture to your projects.  I got the new Stampin’ Pierce Mat and Paper Piercing Tool too and they work perfectly!  I used the biggest circle template to go around the outside of the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch in the card.  I also got out my new Made for You stamp set (p. 44).  I think you all know by now how much I love Teeny Tiny Wishes but this set just might give it a little competition.  Only three sentiments but the ones I use most often.  Perfectly sized for the inside or outside of your cards too.  You’ll be seeing it a lot!!

We made this card yesterday with my Hostess Club.  It was our first meeting of the Stampin’ Up year and I just love this group.  Always a great time!!

Along with the busy flying schedule, I am busily working on a bunch of swap cards for Convention.  Yes, I said it, Convention!!  I get to go to Stampin’ Up’s annual Convention for the very first time this year!!  Yea me!!  I’ll be a bit quiet as I work on the swap cards but I’ll have lots to show you once Convention starts.  I hope I’ll get to meet some of you there!  Thanks for stopping by today.  Back tomorrow with a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Have a great day!
