That's a sketch!

This is for Tamara's sketch#48. I used a color combo from SCS again. It's been awhile since I have used More Mustard. I really like this color combo!

Stamps: Embrace Life, Hugs and Wishes
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, More Mustard, Taken with Teal
Paper: Confetti White, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal
Other: Key tag punch, corner rounder, 3/4" square punch, dimensionals, aquapainter

You guys aren't going to believe this. I can hardly bring myself to tell you. I was at a bridal shower this past weekend for my nephew's fiance. It was a garden party. I have never been to one of those. It made me think of that song by Ricky whats-his-name. I digress. We were at the part of the shower where we were opening gifts. Everyone was oohing and ahhing over the gifts and some of the pretty cards. It comes to the gift my sister, Peg, gave to the bride-tp-be. This is Peg's daughter-in-law to be. Anyhow, she opens the card and get this.......are you ready? Peg gave her a blank card! I don't mean blank inside. I mean blank on the outside too! She gave her a totally BLANK card!!! OMG! The shame! The horror! I told her I thought she needed an intervention. My sister....a blank card.... I mean, I'm a Stampin' Up! demo for gosh sakes. I teach all kinds of people how to stamp cards. It's going to take me awhile to get over this one.

Thanks for stopping by. I can't believe June is almost over! July 1 demonstrators get a sneak peek at some new catalog stuff and the opportunity to purchase them. You can bet I'll be placing an order right away! I'm itching to get my hands on new stuff!!!
