Three Cheers - The New Catalog is Here!

Wahoo! The wait is over and the new catalog is finally here. I am SO excited! And this weekend I get to participate in a shoebox swap using some of the new goodies from the catalog - yippee! I can't wait. As part of the meeting, we are also doing a card swap and this is one of the swaps I will be trading with my fellow demos.
I was inspired by the layout for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #157. I am not usually a diagonal layer person - it makes me a little twitchy, what with my Type A personality and all - but I just felt like this would be a fun sketch to work with so I gave it a shot. I love the bright colors of this new dsp called Floral District and the patterns are fun and funky. You can also see that I used the new Betsy's Blossoms stamp set. My fingers are itchin' to get stampin' so I will leave it at that!

On a personal note, I will be running my first ever 10K tomorrow morning. This is a goal I set for myself last summer and I am so excited, but a little nervous, too. If you think of it, you can say a little prayer for me about 8:30am on Saturday morning. :) Have a fabulous weekend!

Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms, Friendly Phrases
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Lukcy Limeade, Whisper White, Floral District dsp
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, So Saffron, Basic Black
Accessories: Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Basic Rhinestones

Hi Jen! Love your swap card! SO pretty and fresh looking. Best of luck to you on your race. I'm training for a half marathon in the fall. I've only done a 5k, so I'm nervous about that as well. I know you'll do great and I will say a prayer for you too!
