Happy Monday Morning!

I have a few things to share today. I actually have another layout to share but the laptop is being wonky this morning. Oh well. Typical Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I got to stamp and that alone makes for a GREAT weekend. We enjoyed a nice day yesterday with Russ and he was able to just relax. That is what he wanted. We bought the kids a slip n slide yesterday! I about pee'd my pants watching Alexis slide down it. She is still so tiny that she whips down it and tumbles around and around on it. Oh, what a great laugh!!

Okay, back to stamping. This little candy holder is using NEW stamps from the soon to be released 2007/08 catalog. I can hardly contain myself! I need that catty NoW. Anyhoo, this little gem here holds some chocolates in a cello bag. The outside is done with Kraft cardstock and then the new Bayou Blue and Soft Sky cardstock are layered on top. I used that beautiful stamp set Baroque Motifs on the Soft Sky cardstock with Bayou Blue Ink. I just LOVE these colors. Gorgeous.

Lastly, here is a litte memo pad that I altered a bit. Again, I used the same color scheme. I love how you can punch a hole in the center of that flower/circle stamp and run ribbon through it. Makes it looks so stinkin' elegant. I scalloped the bottom of the Bayou Blue cardstock and then punched holes above it. Again, a really fun set. Just think, this is ONLY the beginning!! It is going to be a GREAT year with Stampin' Up!'s NEW toys! Yippie!!
Have a Fantabulous day!! Looks like another day for the slip n slide!

These cards are so cute and love that stamp set, it is between that and Pick a Petal, think that is the name, they are on my wish list, so will definitely be purchasing one of them.

Yay! I love the way you've used the "floral" image as the focal point instead of the swirls from the set! Great card and sweet notebook!
