Waiting.......waiting.....

It's after Noon and I am waiting for the Big Bown truck to arrive with my Stampin' UP! preorder!!!  I keep walking to the window looking to see if he's coming.  "Nope, not yet",  as my Granddaughter keeps saying.

Normally, the UPS truck arrives around Noon, so of course I am getting antsy!! But, when it's a holiday or a special day coming up, they seem to be a lot busier and that may be the reason he's a little later than normal.  Sigh.
Last time he came, it was nearly 4pm.

So, while I am waiting to give you a sneak peek at the catalog cover, I will show you a card I demonstrated on Thursday.
 The color didn't photo well, for some reason, but I used the Wildflower Meadow background stamp (W #129165, C #129168) (retiring in June) and Pistachio Pudding card stock (I am going to MISS this color).  I embossed the Wildflower Meadow stamp onto Pistachio Pudding card stock using a Versamark pad and white EP.

Then, I stamped and embossed two flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set (W #130939, C #130942) and three flowers from the Petite Petals (W #133152, C 133155) stamp set and punched them out using the Pansy punch (130698) and the Petite Petals (133322) punch.

It was easy to just add them to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.  Then, I just added pearls to the centers.

Such a quick and easy easy card and I can't wait to try out some of the newer "In Colors" using another background stamp with this same idea.

Still waiting.....................it's 1:33 pm so I'll jump back online and share a photo of the catalog when it gets here!!

I'm off to make lunch!!

UPS did come, but not till around 4:30 PM.  Here is the sneak peek at the catalog!!

My Granddaughter was pretty excited to be here when the catalog arrived so I let her hold it up so I could take a picture of it.

This was before I went through and put all my blue 'flags' on each page ;-)

Have a great day!!!
