New Schtuff

Guess what?  I got my new catty preorder yesterday...but I didn't get a copy of the new catty because apparently I opted out of it somehow when I did the order???  Arrrgh.  Anyway, I didn't order a whole lot, just the new In Color ink pads, cardstock, and markers, plus just one new stamp set.  Oh, and one roll of ribbon in my new favorite green.

Kids, meet Sweet Sugarplum (the purple) and Emerald Envy (I think you can figure that one out).  Sweet Sugarplum is a warm purple and will make a great Dynamic Duo with Rich Razzleberry, which is what I did here and my RR ink pad is way too juicy and that's why the stamped edges on the RR parts are uneven.  Emerald Envy is a beautiful jewel tone green with some bluish undertones and I think I'm gonna love it for scrapbooking.  I'll have to do something with the other three colors (Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach, and Flirty Flamingo) later this week.

Anywha, for today's card I used the latest sketch at As You See It:

It's been a while since I played along over there.  Sometimes I have a problem in that there are too many challenges for me to get to all of them, even though I post things here six days a week.  Granted, two of those days are for scrapbook pages and baby books, but still.

Well, I'm off to walk the doggos (oh yeah, remember I said it wasn't raining and it was a minor miracle?  By the time I got the dogs outside to start our walk, it was sprinkling.  Because of course it was.  We went anyway and just got wet.) and then this afternoon I have a dental appointment I am very much not looking forward to.  Ugh.

Cheers, y'all!

It's so lovely to see the new colours in action - my preorder arrived yesterday too but haven't had a chance to play yet! I'm liking the way you've used the stamps too. The flowers breaking the circle's edge looks great. Thanks for joining us this time at As You See It.

That green kind of looks teal to me, but I love it. In fact, I am wearing a teal-colored dress to work today with the necklace that makes me most happy. Very, very nice. I really like the purple, too!

I love how you've showcased the new products. I'm just starting to play with mine as well. Rich Razzleberry goes so well with the new Sweet Sugarplum, doesn't it! Great design and I adore that ruched ribbon!
