Sketched Birthday Card + Exciting News!!

I'll start with the card and end with the news! Here's another Catalog CASE. I'm on a roll with these! What can I say, I'm very inspired by the new Stampin' Up! Catalog! There's so many color combinations and layouts that I want to try! (Needs a copy of the catalog? Email me!)

Stampin' Up! Supplies: Sketched Birthday stamp set, Baked Brown Sugar ink & cardstock, Crisp Cantaloupe ink & cardstock, Pistachio Pudding ink & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Dazzling Details Glitter Glue, Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

This card was inspired in layout by the card on page 31. Obviously it's not exactly the same, but the main component, the background image came from the inspiration card. I love how they used the different banner images across the paper. I could have used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment, but I'm lazy and just eye-balled it!

Now, for the exciting news!! Well, there's some good and some bad. I sprained my ankle while playing tag at the park with my son. Ugh. Taking care of the house and the four kids while on crutches and trying to keep my foot elevated...ha ha! It's a joke, really. I hate feeling helpless and I don't "sit and rest" well! At least this gives me an excuse to work on some MDS projects this weekend before the print sale ends on June 15.

When we got back from the park, I got a phone call from Donna Griffith in the training department at Stampin' Up! She asked me to help present at Convention along with three other demonstrator during her class "Building a Thriving Business"! I'm so excited to have this opportunity to share with other demonstrators at Convention this July!

And if all of that wasn't exciting enough, I also officially earned the Grand Vacation incentive trip! My hubby and I will get to cruise to the Western Caribbean in May 2014 and Stampin' Up! is footing the bill! We had to skip the last Caribbean cruise in 2010 because I was 38 weeks pregnant with Anna, so we're excited to visit this part of paradise!
