Curly Label & Top Note

Happy Tuesday! So I gave you a break yesterday from the Top Note Bigz die, but it's baaccckkkk! lol! I actually made this card for one of my bestest friends and downline Asha's birthday (which is the same day as mine-way different year though!) last week. Yes, I was way late sending her card and gift, but she always forgives me! She received it yesterday, so I'll go ahead and post it now. (You may remember her beautiful new baby Maya from here.)

Anyway, this was my first attempt using the fabulous new Curly Label stamp and punch set. Oh my word, love it!! I also used my new Celebration wheel, and I have to tell you, I just put the wheel down and rolled and it turned out perfectly in the middle like that!! Can you believe it?!

Then I used the Party Hearty set by first inking the "party" with a Chocolate Chip marker and then stamped in the oval, and it turned out perfect! Can you believe it?! Well, at this point, I was 2 for 2, so when I went to stamp the word "hearty"...I got out the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig...I figured there was no way I could get lucky 3 times!

I survived my first day back to work, thank you for your well wishes! I won't even say back to "school" yet because it's just meetings this week. It will feel like "school" next week when the kids come back. It was really weird not fixing up "my classroom" this year and even worse seeing the new teacher's stuff in "my old classroom"! lol! But the new administration seems great, lots of good stuff going on, so I'm getting really excited!

Also...note to Michelle from yesterday's post...I made those cards one night LAST WEEK from 12:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m....NOT Sunday night before I had to go back to work! lol! I was a good girl and went to bed at 11 a.m. Sunday night. Believe me, that's the earliest I've been to bed since last May! lol! And I still managed to get up at 5 a.m. and walk 2 miles on the treadmill, today too!

Okay, enough of me rambling on...I have more important meetings to get ready for! Thanks so much for stopping by! I really do love our time together! *wink*

What I love about your cards is you can see the passion that drives the beauty in your cards. It illuminates right off the page.
Good girl for gettin' some sleep before work! :)

You had me worried about the late nights! I'm still trying to get to bed before midnight after 2 weeks of it during the Rally, but now the Olympics is keeping me up. Love the card! That top note die is the best, isn't it? I got mine yesterday and have already used it...I could use it on every card if they'd let me!

My favorite colors and so, so beautimous! And, it's mine...all mine!!! Now, when people get a package in the mail, they usually can't wait to see the gift. When I get your packages, I can't wait to tear open the card envelope first to see the magic you created for me. Love you! Thank you for EVERYTHING!

Angie, I love seeing what you're doing with this top note die. I think this die is going to be a favorite. Great job on the celebrate wheel and the stamping of party. It must be all of that stamping you've been doing this summer! Of course I love the pink and brown together too.
