So, I just moooooved the junk out of the way!

I'm finished organising my office.    Ok, so maybe not quite finished, but at least I've cleared enough space to stamp something.  Seriously!  I was getting withdrawl symptoms looking at all that new ribbon, DSP, stamps & punches just screaming out my name "use me, use me".   In the best interests of all involved, I set aside the piles yet to be sorted, and made a card, and it's way cool!   I first saw a flower pot pocket card done by Stephanie Luman, and knew I simply had to have a go.   Cool huh??  I'll be making some of these cards at my classes this month (and probably for my M&M's swaps, Convention Swaps, School classes.... - you get the idea??!)

Stamps : Best yet (BRAND NEW HOSTESS SET - WOOHOOO!), Eastern Blooms.  Cardstock/Ink : Tangerine tango DSP Patterns, Certainly Celery, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White.  Accessories : Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, 5 Petal Flower Punch, Curly Label Punch.

This was just such a fabulous card to make.   OK, so that's my little play, and now I guess I'd better ignore the screams from the OTHER stamps that I didn't use (not to mention the other DSP & punches..) and get back to my sorting so that tomorrow I can start with a clean desk.    Right??  

AND - who else was bummed that at 8.30pm, as I ignored the phone call that was coming in and about to watch Grey's Anatomy, which I have been hanging out for since last Sunday, did you go "Oh STINK" (or words to that effect), and then answered the phone only to have your sister on the other end going "it isn't on tonight??"  LOL.   STINK.   Had to watch something, as it was my T.V night, so I watched Memoirs of a Geisha.  WOW.   Very cool movie.  Beautiful woman.   Makes you put on a little more anti-wrinkle cream, and do a few squats & sit-ups after watching that.  Doesn't it??   Ha - I WISH!

Enjoy your night!

That's gorgeous - do you think we're all trying to pretend that winter is so NOT a coming ;-)

Very nice Michelle! I need to try making one of those too. We bought the same new stuff by the looks of things, I LOVE Best Yet, though my curly label bundle is still screaming at me! I think you mean Eastern Blooms though, not Embrace Life? :-)

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog, and the other place... I reckon you must be the only person who looks back that far on my blog so I was quite surprised about the circle card comment! Have a great week!
