Hello and Good-Bye...

As you may know, Stampin' Up!'s new catalog is coming out on July 1. As a demo, I have the opportunity to pre-order some fun new stuff before the catalog goes live! My box of pre-ordered goodies arrived last Wednesday, but I had a lot going on personally last week. So, I am just now getting around to sharing one of my new catalog creations with you.
I used 2 new stamps sets (Circle Circus and Teeny Tiny Wishes) and 3 of the new In-Colors (Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry & Soft Suede). The Modern Label Punch and Soft Suede Polka Dot 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon are also new.
You may be thinking, "Hey, this card layout looks familiar!"... Well, I actually came up with this card before I came up with the card for the class that I showed you in my last post. I just liked it so much, that I changed it up with different stamps and accessories.

I prefer to keep my blog-o-creativity upbeat and happy. But that's hard to do when someone important in my life has passed on. I feel I should share the news... my cat, Daisy (16 yrs) went to kitty heaven last Saturday. It was fitting that on the morning of her passing, she enjoyed one last time in a box (one of her favorite things)... I guess it's a good thing I paid to expedite my pre-order... this is priceless:

You may think she looks fine in this photo, but what you don't see is the fact that she could hardly breath and she was wasting away. She weighed a whopping 5 lbs 8 oz at the end. She was a sweet kitty and will be missed terribly.

But don't worry, I'm not lonely... I have another cat to keep me company:
I have to tell you that Punkin did not start doing this until after Saturday. Curious, huh?!
Happy Stampin!

Hi Brenda,
I visit your blog from time to time, and I'm sorry to read about your poor sweet pussycat. It is very hard to watch them fade away, after being such a big part of your life for so long. And I think Punkin is trying to help fill the gap with his new habits, they are so intuitive. Take care, and I hope next week is less distressing.
