A card & some sneak peeks

Happy Monday! Well, okay, maybe not...the jury's still out where I'm concerned. It's been one of those "mixed bag" kind of days, if ya know what I mean. Got bad news about our escrow account being short & property taxes going up, which meant that my payment went up. Didn't have it in the budget, but short of selling myself down on 2nd street (ewwww!) not too many options but suck it up & deal with it and PRAY that it doesn't continue to rise. Chris is leaving in the morning for a road trip...good & bad again for me...good that I get a bit of a break because lately he's been such a grumpy BIKER, bad that I'm a single parent and the kids will be cooped up inside, because they're predicting rain the entire time he's gone. I've got Starbuck's mocha frappuccino & Ben n Jerry's 'everything but the...' ice creams on hand, but will one of each be enough to see me through three days with the boys? {feeling a nudge of panic trying to set in} May have to run to the store by tomorrow night...cross your fingers and say I prayer that I don't...my jeans will thank you for it later! *LOL*

I wanted to get another project done for Thespa's contest over at Vintiquities but that didn't happen...will have to settle for just the one entry. I did manage to get a Father's Day card made last night before bedtime. Hopefully, I can get another one made tonight so Chris can sign it before taking off, then I can make 3 more while he's on the road. This card will be from the boys and go to his dad down in Texas.

It's from The Angel Company set called "Wonder & Joy" (T3254, 10 stamps for $19.95) and I think that this little boy is just too stinkin' cute for words! I stamped him with Memento tuxedo black ink, colored him with COPIC markers (list at the end of post) and did a Crissy Armstrong-inspired "dotty background." He's cut out with #5 of Large Labels Nestabilities, then mounted onto some forest green cardstock with a bit of tan Scrapper's floss. The striped paper is from My Mind's Eye. The sentiment below, stamped inside the card, comes in the set, too.Here's a close-up of the little guy. I really hope we get more like him in the catalog coming out July 1st, because he & his female counterparts are some of my favorites. I just love their expressions!

And if you haven't placed an order for any of our retiring sets, go over to the KILLER Deals page to see what we've got. Everything listed is 25% off till the 25th - just e-mail me for pricing or if you have any questions. And just to get you excited about the new catalog, here are some sneak peeks at new sets....

Aren't they great?!? We're adding something for everyone's tastes, which always makes me happy. If you'd like to pre-order a catalog, hit the e-mail me pic toward the bottom of the page. Price with shipping inside the US is $8. If you're outside the US, let me know where you are, so I can get the correct international rates.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
