ESAD Blog Hop - Hooray for the new Catty

Wow it's been a long time in between blog hops with the ESAD girls that's for sure. I love hopping with this uber talented group and you are about to be blown away with all the creativity to come. Whether I'm your first stop or you've hopped over from Cherie (wasn't her creations AH-mazing, that girl can craft!!) I hope you enjoy yourself and get plenty of new ideas.

So, my card today was actually inspired by... well, by MYSELF!! I know, strange hey.

In my little Stampin' Up! business I recently promoted to Manager, which has been in the making for sometime and this month the stars aligned so to speak and all of my blood (paper cut Ouch!!), sweat and tears paid off. So I made a Congratulations card, for myself:

 It's pretty special isn't it! I'm totally loving all our new DSP's in the catalogue, but I think the Timeless Elegance paper has to be the most beautiful. In fact I wasn't sure I was even going to cut into it. Tell me you have the same problem!!

Also can you see what I did with our new Natural Elements veneers. I inked up the 'Congrats' using our Memento black. Great way to colour co-ordinate these little beauties for any project.

Well that's it for me today. The next person on the Hop is the awesome Rachael Lewsley, who has yet another beautiful creation to share with you all.

Happy Crafting,
