German phrase of the day: Ist das Leben nicht schoen! = Isn't life wonderful! (literally, isn't life pretty!. (Sidenote: oe can be used in place of an o with an umlaut - because I'm too lazy to look up the code to do that one!)
Yesterday I got this beautiful card from my online stamping buddy Kyla (otherwise known as Vitality!) She does some of the most beautiful cards! And it's funny, because I know when I"m browsing around SCS, I can pick out her cards because she has such a distinctive style...lots of layers, lots of ribbon, and drop-dead gorgeous!! Be sure to visit her blog...you won't regret it!! Also, she's having a Cards for Troops contest right now...so you can go read all about it!
For this card she used the stamp set demonstrators got at Regionals this year, Double Line Doodles. It will be in the new Fall/Winter 2007 catalog coming out in July. I just can't wait to see the new catalog. People who went on cruise got a sneak peak at all kinds of special goodies, and some are sharing those peaks with those of us not fortunate enough to go (THANK YOU!) Guess I better start saving my money now, because I already have a half dozen things on my wish list just from the little peak I've gotten!
I have so many things to look forward to in July... the new Harry Potter Movie (ok, I guess that's in June) The new Catalog, the new (and last!) Harry Potter book, and a week long vacation with my daughter and hubby (we're thinking England and Scotland, but haven't finalized it yet) So, overall, July will be a good month! :-)
We leave for Tuscany tomorrow...so you all can think of me "Under the Tuscan Sun" I'm going to upload some photos of projects I did LAST April to post while I'm in Italy (and not stamping) so that you all won't miss me too much (Internet connection willing!)
