Christmas in August

It's time to get back to my stamping roots and, boy, does it have me thinking. After all of the exploring I have been doing over the past several months, it's difficult to think of a card in terms of supplies that are only made by SU but, I love my SU supplies and this new Christmas stamp set is one of the reasons why. Oops, guess I should start from the beginning. I'll be having one of my infrequent SU demos the first weekend in September so I want to start playing with my new stamps and deciding what to show the crew. This is an option, but probably not something I'll stick with. The hostess requested a Christmas card and I want to show the pastels, but I'm not entirely happy with this color combo. I think it's the Bashful Blue that throws it off. Glad I started early! :)

I almost forgot to post an update from the Bella Back to School Bash. I was fortunate enough to win one of the challenges, can you believe that? All of the cards were so creative and cool! I think Shannan was being extra kind to me because it was my birthday, or maybe it was the Tiddly Inks image that charmed her. Either way, I was so surprised and pleased that she chose my card. Thanks, Shannan and Jamie for hosting such a fun party! I can't wait for the next one.
