just because

Good Monday Morning stampers! I hope that you all had a super weekend and got lots done! This card is for the sketch challenge for this week on SCS.

I got this image from someone and, unfortunately, I don't remember who but isn't it adorable? I love the little heart cheeks and wings. This dragonfly is from High Hopes which would lead me to believe I got the image from either Diane or Bela but those are just guesses. So, whomever sent me this...thank you!

Today, I'm off to my very first professional baseball game. We are going to a Mariner's game with some friends of ours. Dinner, too! I guess our seats are on the left foul line and I understand that is good. Maybe we'll catch a ball as Kyler has requested we bring him home one (do you think he'll know the difference if we just buy one at Walmart? teehee!). I will definitely be taking my camera and trying it out in that situation. Oh, I understand that the Mariner's aren't doing so hot this season so we may do a lot of sitting but at least I can people watch instead, huh?

Stampin' Up! sure has had some exciting announcements this convention. One would be that they will be selling a SU! branded Big Shot. You can see all about the non-SU! machine HERE. There will also be dies exclusive to SU! Customers will be able to purchase it starting in September. Also, starting with the next catalog (so the fall/winter 09) ALL stamp sets will be die cut so no more cutting out those stamps! Hopefully my new catty's will arrive soon (rather than later than the deadline like the last couple of years) and I'll e-mail my customers to let you know they are available. If you'd like one just e-mail me and I'll give you the scoop on the cost and such.

That is it for today. I hope you all have a terrific day!
