Hey No Stamps

Would you believe that this card didn't use any stamps at all !?! Beate was having another one of her sketch card challenges and I thought it was a super cute layout for a card. I added a challenge for myself not to use any stamps, so I pulled out the Level 1 hostess set, Simply Scrappin' Friends & Flowers, that has all the supplies for scrapbook pages or in this case cards. The only other things I used for this card was my coluzzle for the confetti white circle and I also used some scalloped scissors to make the border around the circle. I then took my signo white gel pen and put dots around the circle image to make it match the other scalloped borders. The dimensions for this card are 4" X 4".
So this weekend I was able to place an order from the Fall-Winter Preview 2007 catalog. I wish I could tell you that I was able to get everything, but I do not have that much money to put into my stamping hobby. I'll tell you that I got some Bling, I am really excited for the rhinestone brads! I also got all of the new in color pads and card stock, I am really excited to play with the new colors. So to go with the in colors I had to get the Prints Designer Series Paper, obviously, ha ha. I will definitely miss Cool Caribbean when it retires at the end of this month. I will definitely be stockin' up on the card stock. I also bought a few of the stamp sets and of course the Blossoms & Basics Chip board to match the Pick a Petal Stamp set. I can definitely say I am very excited to get my next order!
