San Diego bound...

I'm headed to the west coast today for a week so won't be stamping.  This time I'm actually happy to be away from my craft room for a while.  Looking forward to enjoying San Diego's perfect weather.

Yesterday was the release of  Stampin' Up's retired lists of stamps and accessories. We are all getting ready for the new catalog, which comes out July 1st. I'm so excited to see what is new besides the color renovation. I did get a sneek peek at few new items. Of course, I had to place an order. It will still be like a vacation when I come home to a SU! box. The fun won't stop until I have to do the laundry.

This card was actually stamped for Bethany while she was away at college. I used one of the cute fellows from my House Mouse collection. Prisma pencils and OMS (odorless mineral spirits) were used to color the image. The designer paper came from a pack which I purchased at Hobby Lobby. I add SU! bashful blue for a splash of blue and to tie in the stamps. I ran my blue strip through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder to add some texture. I love texture!

I hope you have a wonderful week and do something that makes you smile and laugh!
