New Stuff!

Morning everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Monday and got tons accomplished! I didn't get quite as much done as I would have liked but that happens sometimes doesn't it?

I received my first Stampin' Up! new catalog order via UPS yesterday and, of course, I had to sit down top make a card. When I first saw the new set Herb Expressions I knew I had to have it. I was even happier when I Googled Rosemary, looked at the images and the flowers within Rosemary where a light purple as that meant it would match with my new Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. The colors in this new paper are Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Orchid Opulence. Now tell me...how many of you have used Orchid Opulence recently? Other than this card I sure haven't but it looks wonderful in this combination! The other new product I used is a stamp from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes. The sentiment that would match with the rosemary image was to big for the area in which I needed the sentiment so I chose the 'thinking of you' sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set. Love it!

So...there you have it! Thursday is limeLIGHT Papercrafts sketch and product challenge day so head on back here to see what challenge we have for you this week! I hope that you have a wonderful Tuesday and get lots accomplished!
