I'm Back...and refreshed

We had a fabulous time out in San Diego!  The weather was perfect and our days were busy from sun-up to sun-down.  I could adjust to living out there except for the parking would drive me crazy.  We went to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Los Angeles and the beaches.  If you ever get to LA, you have to go visit the Getty Museum.  It is spectacular!  My hubby really wanted to go there and the children and I were not to enthused about it.  Once there we were all blown away with the buildings, gardens and the art.

Ok, on to my card that I made when I got back.  This was for my neighbor who took care of our animals while we were away.  We got back on Tuesday night and the present man came on Wednesday afternoon with my new SU! goodies. What a great gift to come home to.

This card uses a new stamp set that will be in the catalog which will debut on July 1st along with some new ink colors and paper.  I also used the new color coach to help me decide on what cardstock I wanted to use. I fell in love with the new color coach.  A must have for all stampers and scrapbookers!

Stamps:  Friends Never Fade
Paper:  Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso & White
Ink:  Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso
Accessories:  ribbon, Nestabilities circle & scalloped circle die, Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder, Stickles

Bethany was scrapbooking while and I was stamping.  She put her creative mind to work and designed the layout for us.  Her scrapbook page turned out really cute too.  She is making a scrapbook of her first year of college.  She definitely has crafting abilities.

I'm off to make a birthday card for someone special.  Hope they don't mind getting it a little late.  The good news is that it will be postmarked before her birthday.  Does that count as not being late?

Enjoy your weekend!
