New Catalog & Happy 4th of July

     Have y'all had a chance to check out the new SU! catalog that went live on Friday? I'm so excited to see all the new toys that are in there. If you haven't seen it, you can go online HERE to check it out for yourself!
     As for me, I've been planted on my couch since Wednesday trying to get over this summer cold that has gone to my chest not good at all, funny how it came on when I had a few days off & I'm sure it will be all gone by the time I return to work. Great way to spend your days off, especially when you have so many in a row!NOT! However, I did take me some good cough medicine last night & am starting to feel somewhat human again.
     Anyways, I gotta know if the following has happened to anyone else. As I was drifting off to sleep last night I had a wonderful card idea pop into my head, too tired to go back upstairs I told myself that I would work on it today. I got up this morning raring to go, got everything out I needed & went to get the stamp set & it wasn't where it was supposed to be on my shelf. I looked all over for it, even in my box of sets that I want to sell but alas I haven't found it, so I'm going to guess that somewhere along the lines I sold it & just don't remember. There goes that idea down the drain along with another card that I started & is about 50% done, but it isn't turning out the way I hoped so will have to figure out what is missing.
     I finally got a card done that I liked took me most of the day & now it is the 4th. I wanted to do red, white & blue cards this whole weekend for the 4th, but this is the only one I could get done that I liked. Operation Write Home blog was issuing challenges all day Saturday & Sunday, so here is my rendition for the 4th of July Party: Challenge 11 Pinwheel Cards

  1. I love your background! I was thinking it was dp and then I recognized the stamps. Thanks for taking on the pinwheel challenge.

    And I know what you mean about half-made cards. That was me this morning. I half-made 4 cards before I got any made.
