Announcement and Cupcake Ruby for Catherine

First off, I want to let you all know that I will be on vacation July 27th through August 1st.  Though I won't be home to ship orders, I will still have internet access.  All orders that are placed during that time, will ship out on Tuesday, August 3rd.  I have taken Monday, August 2nd off from my day job, so I will be home packaging all of your orders!

Today is my best friend's birthday. Sadly, she is in Washington, DC and I am in Seattle, but I hope she has a wonderful celebration.  I haven't seen her since New Years...and unfortunately, I don't think I'll see her til next summer - as I plan on going to CHA. :)   Here is a picture of me, Catherine, and our friend/sorority sister Katie.

I decided to use Cupcake Ruby for Catherine's card.  I almost never color my images with blonde hair, but I like how she turned out.  I also used Taylored Expressions Sketch #121 for this.

Paper: Basic Grey Nook and Pantry
Stamps: Sparkle Creations, sentiment is AmyR Stamps
Nestabilities, Copics, Prima Flowers, Pearls, EK Success Border Punch, and Crystal Stickles

Everyone have a great Thursday!

Great card!

I couldn't imagine my best friend, bananastamper, living any further away from me then she does now. I love her new house, but I hate that she moved 20 minutes away from me when she used to live just down the street.

I just received my first order from you and my enabling friends are encouraging me to participate in your challenge instead of designing workshops for my store because I really want to play along and ink my new stamps. So, we shall see if I give into the peer pressure tonight or not.
