This past weekend I made this card at my adopted up-line Linda Heller's stamping get together.  We used the new Tea Shoppe stamp set from the new Occasions Mini catalog and the lovely Twitterpated designer paper which is also in the new Occasion Mini.     We cut a slit at the top of the tea cup and tucked a tea bag down inside.  Such a fun card to give to a best friend.

 Do you love the new Twitterpated designer paper as much as I do?  I think it is absolutely beautiful and so fun to use on so many different products.  For this project I covered a soup can with Twitterpated paper and used a piece of Stitched-Poly-Ribbon for the bow. Stampin' Up's! cute little cellophane bags are perfect for the M & M's, and I used the new P.S. I Love You stamp set from the new Occasions mini.

This new pack of designer series paper in the new Occasion Mini catalog is so beautiful.  For this card I used two different designs, and I also used the new Hearts Collection Framelits Dies that is also in the new Occasion Mini.  These dies are so fun and easy to use.  Six dies come in this set neatly layered inside each other.

I love the new Blossom Builders Kit in the new Occasion Mini catalog on page 18.  These die-cut flowers are double-sided for double the fun, and printed on textured paper.  Mix and match and layer as many blooms as you like.  This set is perfect for quick and easy card making when you are in a hurry and you need a "Get Well" or "Happy Birthday" greeting card.  Also perfect to adorn your scrapbook pages. A page of thirty rhinestones in two different sizes is included in the set.  Order yours today and see what I mean about fun, quick and easy! http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/jillhadley

I didn't start 2012 out as planned.  I've been sick with the flu and bronchotis for the past two weeks, and I'm still not completely over it but I'm feeling a whole lot better than I was a week ago.

I totally missed posting about the new Occasions Mini Catalog that debut Jan. 4.  It is full of absolutely gorgeous new stamp sets, designer paper, buttons, ribbons and lots more. You don't want to miss seeing it.  You can click on the Mini Catalog on my side bar to view each page at your leisure.

HAPPY 2012!!!

I hope you had a very happy and safe New Year celebration.  What do you have planned for 2012?  Do you make resolutions, or have a plan to get organized and promise to accomplish more this year?  Lose weight, work less and play harder?  I don't make resolutions.  New Year resolutions seem like more added pressure we just don't need to start the year off with.  However, I do try and make a general plan on how I would like to see the first quarter of the year look like. For example, I've already started my "To Do List" of things I want to get accomplished in the next couple months.  As the weeks and months go on I will report in and let you know how many things I have been able to cross of my "To Do List".  Happy New Year!!
