Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday. I have a quick card for you tonight, as well as some photos of the progress on the house. It's been a hectic week - as you can imagine! Now, you all know that Poppy Parade will be retiring with the new Stampin' Up! catalog - so I decided it was time to let it have a little moment in the spotlight.

So don't forget to pop along and play with us - and also pop along to the design team members blogs and check out the details they have on their cards. For my card, I used a new set that...

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. Generally on Saturday night I reveal my Paper Players card. However, I haven't even started that yet! We left very early for the new house this morning and have only just gotten back. I am thinking that as we still have to go shopping and prepare dinner - I might not get that card made tonight, either! However, we did have an AWESOME visit at the new house. In fact, we really didn't want to leave. We kept saying, well, I suppose we had better go.... and then walked around a little more.... repeating this for... Read more →
