VSN, a first for me! and New SU catty goes LIVE!

YES!!! At noon today (MT) you can now order from the 2009 Spring/Summer Stampin' Up! catty!!!

We were frozen in this weekend. It was cooooold! Tim worked and the boys were playing with the neighbors, so I got some stamping time. SCS held their VSN Mini Crush . There were 12 challenges posted and they were a lot of fun. I did not do all 12 but I did complete 7 of them. The girls that hosted (some of my FAVE stampin' peeps!) it did a fabulous job. I loved the little video intro on quite a few of the challenges. It was so fun to see and hear IRL some of the friends we chat with online. I won't share all my projects today, but here are a few to start with.

I think this was my fave. It was a Save the Date challenge, you had to include those words on your card somewhere. I did this for a date night DH and I will have this Friday (my parents are coming into town!!).
This next one was for a new technique, Burned Batik. While I'm still not sure about this card, it was still fun to try something new. Check out that texture on the choc. chip is from one of the new textured plates that SU is now carrying!
okay, and one more. Since the theme was all about LOVE, this challenge card was to use something soft and tender on your card. I did this one up with a row of felt flowers. The images are from Unity!

That's all for today. The kiddos are off of school and DH is home. Hopefully we'll get out and do something fun. Nothing is planned yet, but dinner out would be nice! Have a good day!

Hugs, Lisa
