It's Melon Mambo

I'm such a dork sometimes! Yesterday I was saying Mango Mambo. No. It's Melon Mambo. Duh! Sorry about that...

Good Friday morning everyone! No soccer camp today! And it's a good thing too as it is just pouring rain right now!! So it is a GREAT day to sleep in! But I decided to get up and do a little blogging and drink a nice hot cup of coffee. Remember when I was telling you about how hot it was out here? Well, last night when the front was rolling in, it got just a little chilly. I was so excited for it! I love to open the windows and just let the breeze cool me off. Anyway, enough about the weather. I wanted to show off something to all of you. I know that you may not care but I am just a little 'giddy' over it. It's not everyday that you get to see your last name on a team jersey! I just love it!! He got his All-Star baseball jersey last night at practice and on the way home he decided to put it on. So when he walks in and I see it my heart just jumped out of my chest because it was so full of pride! Anyway, I just had to share. Now on to the card (which is really why you came here, right?)...

So, I found a card similar to this one on Splitcoast. I was looking for a card that would showcase the new designer paper. There is very little stamping on this card. The greeting comes from the new set called Teeny Tiny Wishes. Lots of fun little greetings in this set. Make sure you look at the flower center. I used a small white grommet first. Then I took a rhinestone brad (from the Circle Fire collection) and poked it through the middle. I thought it turned out super! I can't wait for you all to see the new 09/10 Stampin' Up! catalog! By the way, you only have three more days to order out of the current catalog! Don't wait! Let me know if I can help you out with that. Thanks for stopping by!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper- Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper; Ink- Melon Mambo; Accessories- Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon, modern label punch, birds & blooms sizzlets, big shot, small basic grommets, rhinestone brad, scallop border punch, dimensionals
