Fruity Cheers!


Fruity Cheers card

Yikes! I can't believe it's been so long since I posted a project! I guess I've been preoccupied with the excitement of a new catalog coming out in the very near future. If you don't know what I'm talking about, the Spring-Summer 09 Idea Book & Catalog will be released on January 19. Demonstrators who went to the Stampin' Up! Leadership conference (that's going on as I type this) received the first copies on Wednesday and a few demos in Canada received them on Thursday... and, well... I've been glued to their blogs! LOL! I'm hoping my boxes of catties arrive sometime next week... so I can drool over my own!

Since we are still in the shadow of New Years Eve and all (hopefully you've recovered from your celebration), I felt sharing a "cheers" card would be in order. This card was made using the Cheers to You stamp set (appropriately named) and the coordinating wheel, Cheers. I also used the Top Note die. If you're wondering "Hey, that doesn't look quite right!", I created a smaller version by cutting off about an inch from each end and sliding those end pieces together. The ribbon covers up the seam.

Anyone interested in coming over for a fruity drink with me?

Happy Stampin!

Super cute card. I had to get this set when it first came out, but I haven't done anything with it yet. Thanks for the inspiration.
