You Make Me Happy!

This is kind of a hard time for me to stay up on my blog.  I just finished all my display stamper samples and I can't share any of those on my blog until after Convention.  Now I'm working hard on swaps for convention and I don't want to show those here until after the recipients have received them.  So what's a blogger to do?

Today's card may end up a swap for convention too, but with a few modifications so I am going to show it today anyway.  It was one of the cards offered at my All-You-Can-Stamp Buffet last weekend (and will be offered again on Friday).  It features a couple of new stamp sets:
Colors: Coral Calypso, Gumball Green, and Whisper White.  Stamps: Dictionary and Hello, Lovely.  Punches: Elegant Butterfly.  Accessories: Simply Pressed Clay, Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds, Baker's Twine.
You might notice two things about this card.  First, it is a CASE of a card in the catalog on page 3 of the catalog.  I did change up quite a bit but that was the inspiration for it.  Second, I used a tiny bit of retired Baker's Twine on the card.  But I still have a lot of Coral Calypso Baker's Twine left so I went ahead and did it anyway.  I just love the Dictionary Stamp.  It's so fun!  Here I stamped it on the card base and then again on the white layer.

It isn't too late to RSVP for this Friday's All-You-Can-Stamp Buffet.  Last weekends class was a big hit and I'd love to share the class with a few more.  Just let me know by tomorrow if you want to come.

I like your card. I know, I want to get the stuff to make that one in the catalog and it comes to about $73.00! w/o tax and shipping. But yours is very nice and a bit cheaper, lol. Thank you for finding something to share even tho you're soo busy and appeasing us candy blog addicts:}

Love the card! I can't wait to get the dictionary stamp. The little greeting is so cute.

Great card! I really like how you used the dictionary stamp. I had been try to not get that one... I can't wait to see all of your other projects, too!

I completely understand your dilemma with finding things you can post this time of year, lol!
This is an adorable card though, and you have convinced me that the Dictionary BG stamp is a perfect replacement for the First Edition paper that retired. It is going on my next order!
