as to what day of the week it is? This time of year always gets my head in a muddle, with family and sleep in days and late nights, I am so relaxed it is wonderful. Today was more garden time, finishing planting the cactus, creating more of our natural (precisely placed)rockscape. It is looking really nice, I will show you a picture soon. The cactus that we have planted now, are apparently Jack Rabbit proof and let me tell you, those Jack Rabbits eat cactus right down to the roots if they know it is a tasty treat.
Today is the 3th of January and do you know what that means? SALE-A-BRATION starts in TWO days!! Now if you didn't get your Mini Occasions and Sale-a-bration mini catalogues in the mail, don't despair. Stampin' Up had a problem with the mailings so they sent them out on the 2nd of January. If you would like to see the new Occasions Mini click here:
It is 43 pages of incredible things. The new stamp sets come either Wood mounted or Clear Mounted and the new Designer Papers are beautiful. And, the satin ribbons, oh my, glorious colors, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Basic Gray and Pretty in Pink.(yes, I will be having a ribbon share, more on that later) And the Sale-A-Bration this year is incredible.

Not only are there 4 NEW stamp sets that you can get in either Wood Mount or Clear Mount plus a beautiful Designer paper 6 x 6 3 each of 24 designs and for the first time a punch. It is one of the new style punches called scallop trim border.

Ok I guess you would like to see a card or something, cause that is what you really came for. Now do you remember I told you at the beginning that I was working in the yard, napping and generally muddled up, so today's card comes courtesy of Stampin' Up
Isn't it a bright and cheerful card, I chose this one especially for all those who are dealing with rain and snow. Yes, spring is just around the corner!
Textured cardstock, a little DSP and the wonderfully cheerful set, Cheep Talk and spring can surround you too.
