AHHHHH......CAN YOU SMELL IT???!!!

That's the smell of sweet new rubbah, baby!!! WHOOOOHOOOO!!!! I FINALLY got my box yesterday after the resked of my delivery date....I thought I was going to cry!! I was on the front porch before Mr. Brown could get out of his truck - I don't know who he was more afraid of , me or the dogs, LOL! But, I immediately mounted all my new stamps and got to work! This card is made using Julee's Mojo Monday sketch, which I fell in love with, it is fabulous!!! Perfect for new stamps too! I ADORE this new stamp set - it is called Dreams du Jour and it is simply fabulous!! I was really somewhat sad when Touch of Nature retired, but now that I have this set with the butterfly, I feel much better - LOL!!! I used my new in-color card stock for the base, it is called Riding Hood Red, and oooh, it is YUMMY!!! I topped it with the new Bella Rose Designer Series paper, aaaahhh...I can tell this will be a favorite!! Then, I used the flip side of the same dp which is the brown with polka dots - isn't it fabulous! All the images are stamped in Chocolate Chip ink; I water colored my sentiment image with both Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss classic inks, another one of the in-colors, then double stamped the butterfly, once on the Whisper White card stock and then once on the Bella Rose dp, cut it out, and made it 3d...pretty, huh? Can't go wrong when the paper is this beautiful! I also used some of the new buttons from the button bouquet, love them!!! I rounded the corners of all my paper to give my card a softer look and voila, done!!! I am sooooo excited about getting to play with new products because I ADORE Stampin' Up! and really cannot imagine not being a part of this wonderful company! So, enough blathering, gotta get back to that rubbah - toodles!
