When I saw the Animal Talk stamp set in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog I thought it was really cute.  It was in my first order and I’ve been using it in my classes this month.  I call this one a window card because there is a hole punched through the top layer and you see the stamped image on the second layer through the “window”.  I thought this would be a fun style with this set since there was an image stamp and a corresponding phrase stamp with each image.

I also got to use the new Piercing Templates – I know I’m going to love those.  I used our largest circle punch which just happens to match the largest piercing circle on the template – its a “perfect match” – like they say in the Haverty’s commercial.   There are a couple of other new things on this card – the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper – this is a fun paper pack and I know I’m going to use it a lot.  And the 1/4″ stitched ribbon in Early Espresso.

I hope you like it. I’m planning to make a whole set using the different images/phrases in the Animal Talk stamp set and making them for convention swaps – so I probably won’t share the rest until convention.

Did you see the thermometer?  It’s rising!  I’m almost at the top.  The thermometer show the orders that I have already placed.  Then I have a hand full of people to follow up with that said they would order.  If they all come through with a $55 order that should put me within about $800 of earning the Get-a-way trip!  So I only need to find a few more people this week – it’s going to happen – I can feel it.  Yippee!  If your not sure what I’m talking about then read here.

Cindy and I are having our make up class for the My Digital Studio Club today.  Saturday’s class was lots of fun and today’s will be too.

I hope you do something fun today!
