Case The Catty-Christmas Pines

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Hope everyone had a nice Labor Day holiday!
Kelsey, Corey & Shady came over and brought me cupcakes for my birthday!
Yesterday was my birthday. 
Usually on my birthday weekend we take the bikes to the Rail Trail and ride to the Maryland Line. 
Not this year with such heat & humidity.

It was a great day with the kids, hubby and all 3 doggies!
After they left Gigi & Bailee crashed & burned while I cleaned up the kitchen.
Shortly after, I crashed & burned, too!
Ryan had a good day too but just feels miserable inside.
This afternoon is his doctor appointment.

I know I said I probably would not update today but I had sometime to stamp yesterday before Kelsey came. I had this pack of cards started and I just needed to get them put together.
I cased the catty for this one.

This card is on page 97 of the Stampin Up Annual Catalog.
With this heat I have had Christmas on my mind trying to stay cool.
I'm also so excited to get out all of my ceramic Christmas Trees this year!
I'm pretty sure I will be starting by Halloween to get them out and find a place for them. 
I lost count at how many we have now. Pretty sure they will be in every room of the house! LOL

Card Details:

Stamps: Christmas Pines, Sheet Music Background
Ink: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Accessories: Pretty Pines Thinlits, Gold Ribbon, Gold Metallic Stars, Sponge, Glue Dots, Tombow Mulitpurpose Liquid Glue

I changed up a few things on this card and I really love that it is still flat for easy mailing!
Stay tuned tomorrow as I will have something new to share using brand new stuff!
 Also our Stampin Up Holiday Mini Catalog goes live tomorrow! WooHoo!
SO many things in there that I just love!

My thoughts today....

Hurry up Fall!!!

That is all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & stay cool!

This is a wonderful design Wendy! I love the distressed music sheets for the background, but the two-tone green pine branches and pine cones are beautifully stamped and make for a gorgeous design! Hope your birthday was a fun one too :) Keeping my fingers crossed for Ryan today - I sure do hope he feels better soon.

Oh these are beautiful Wendy!! This gives me a idea for a pine die that I have! Not sure I have pine cone dies though....hum. Hope Ryan gets answers soon. Think the heat is leaving should be a cool and rainy weekend.
