Oh no, Not Something New!!!

I'm really not ready for the new stamps yet. While I've got Christmas carols ringing in my head I saw at Joann's Valentine's Day stuff already out. I wasn't ready to purchase any pink stuff yet. I'm still looking at the reds and greens of Christmas. The blinking lights, the Christmas movies and tunes of the season!

But I do need thank you cards and I wasn't sure if I wanted them to have a Christmas theme so I thought I'd take out one of the new sets that arrived on Thursday evening. The poor UPS driver was delivering overtime!

I chose the elephant stamp in the "Happy Heart Day" set by Stampin' Up! because it could be used for Valentine's Day or a Thank You card. The words around the elephant's head read: "To an unforgettable friend." It sounds like it could work for either occasion to me!!!

SO I got out the new decorative papers too and cut away! I actually used them but as I'm cutting the sheet I'm thinking the whole time to be careful with the cutting, making sure it's totally accurate so I can have some left. Left for what??? To hoard??? Yup, that's exactly it!!! LOL I am going to try my hardest to use up every sheet in these packages.

I think this is a cute Thank You card and I'm sure my friend will just love it.

I have a SUPER fun project to show you tomorrow!!! I showed it to some of the gals who came here to stamp last week and they all just LOVED it.

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

This is so cute. I did not even place an order yet! Can't believe I have been able to hold off. Not much longer though if you guys keep doing this, lol. Great card.

I glanced at this stamp set in the preview cattie and wasn't sure if I'd use it much, but after seeing the stamp used for a thank-you card, I'm going to have to reconsider! You're a paper hoarder?! Welcome to my world! I'm still hanging onto 3 sheets of retired Holiday Thyme that I just can't bear to use yet. What's that all about anyway?! LOL!! LOVE this paper you used - what great vivid shades of pink! Nice card, TFS!

Beautiful! I can't believe you've gotten to this stamp set already! Wow! I just received mine in the mail, and I'm dying to get to it! But I've got to finish all my Christmas stuff first...
