More challenges...and Text Box ordered!

German Phrase of the Day: Die Erdbeeren sind koestlich. = The strawberries are delicious. Koestlich (should be o with an oomlot on it instead of oe) is pronounced KUHST-lihkh where the hkh is that German sound I just can't make. I think I still like the word lecker (pronounced leckah) better!! :-)

So, I finally got my final sneak peak at the new set yesterday afternoon from Nicole's blog...and of course first thing I did this morning when I got up was turn on my computer to check out the entire new set, and place my order! I didn't win the Guest Star Stamper, but I LOVE the sample that did I don't feel so bad. ;-) Congrats Trudee!!

Yesterday, after realizing I'd done the colors wrong for the color challenge, I had to do another card and do it right this time! I used the sketch challenge again for the layout, and this time used Cruisabella. I like my bathabella card better...but this one is cute too. I really like the new papers from Stampin' Up! and can't wait to see that new catalog...just 2 more weeks, right?!? I have to go clean my daughter's room. This morning, I turned on the light to go open the shades (she was downstairs with her dad) and the light bulb exploded. No one was hurt, but I now have to pick up all the toys and completely vacuum in there before we will let her in it again. Not an easy task!!

Supplies: (all supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Cruisabella from Stampingbella
Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, certainly celery, confetti white, pallet o' prints
Jet Black Stazon
Acc: Aquapainter, watercolor wonder crayons, ticket corner punch

  4. Nasty lightbulb glass . . .Now I know why you aren't on Messenger!!! I do so love that Cruisabella -- I gotta' rent a convertible one of these glorious Maine weekends!!! Got my order to Papertrey by 9 and decided to order the words to go with my Tiny Tags from Cuttlebug - plus a hundred other uses!!! XO x 3 and rubs for Shadow and Maisy the good dog!!!!
