So Much Newness!!

Good morning, all! Hoping that all of our East Coast friends are safe after the wild weekend from Hurricane Irene. We were lucky in our neighborhood; lots of wind and a few downed branches, but nothing like some other places saw. Thoughts and prayers going out to them as they start cleaning up.

Today is full of new things here at SS. As you can see, Laurie and I played with the template and design last night. We had quite a few laughs while doing it! Laurie starts her new job today; Kel is moved in to the new place and is having fun unpacking boxes; and I am helping out with the blog. Total blogging noobie, so I am going to apologize in advance for any weird formatting or other things that show up! ;)

Today is Laurie's husband's birthday, too! He is always helping my hubby out with things around our house and is such a nice guy. This is the card that I made for him from my family. You have seen some of my cards with this little owl guy before. I just love him!


I have really been trying to use things in my stash and not buy or even cut things until some of it gets used up!

Stamps: Cornish Heritage Stamps: U R A  Hoot Set
Memento black ink
Copics: E34, E35, Y15, YR12, B12, YG11
Happy Birthday chipboard: EK Success
Metal tag and patterned paper: stash

I am looking forward to "chatting" with you all each day and hope I can do Kel and Laurie justice. They will be back soon! Have a great day!
