I am in love all over again!!!!

No...I am not trading in my hubby.....I received my first shipment of preorder goodies from the Occasions mini catalog that begins April 1st. As soon as I saw Great Friend...among other things....I HAD to have it!!! I will try to refrain from using only it......but I won't make any promises! lol!

Kristina's color challenge was posted the other day...but I knew my new goodies were arriving I held off on playing, until now!

Can you believe it???? Here colors this week are basic black, basic grey and whisper white?!??!?!? How much more elegant can you get???? I sure hope I captured elegance here...that is what I was aiming for! :)

I don't have a ton of time to get into deets...I have a club meeting tonight and I have to leave here in about an hour. (and I am not ready - my stuff is ready, but I am not... :) ) The designer series paper is Rockability - I think it is a collection that is very over looked. Who would know that there are white skulls on riding hood red background on the other side of this drop dead gorgeous already embossed striped black paper????? Oh....moving up....did you see that ribbon?? Oh yeah - sneak peek - white satin ribbon - Can I say d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s. !!! OOooooo...did you see that frame stamp and sentiment, beautiful butterfly and the leaf branch - another sneak peek for you - Great Friend, coming in April....LOVE IT! Don't forget the flat backed pearls from the pretties kit....lovely! that a new punch???



It is from the new exclusive die called matchbox. It is an amazing die that not only contains the dies to whip up a match box style box in seconds.....but it also contains three other label shapes that coordinate with stamps!!!!! Does it get any better!?!??!??!? I mean - seriously!

It is hard to capture the dimension that I put into the butterfly, but here is a different angle of that.

And you know my "new thing" is to decorate the insides....

What do you think? I absolutely love this card!! I would love to hear what you think of it!

All together gorgeous -
Thanks for showcasing this lovely side of "Rockabilly". Amazing that a paper with such a funny name can have such an elegant side to it.
