Sleep ... it's highly over-rated, right??? I was up at midnight last night hurriedly putting in my Stampin' Up order. You see, for demonstrators, last night at midnight was the "Golden Hour." Included with the shipment of the first order we place on May 7 will be a copy of the new Idea Book and Catalog!! It was also available for us online to preview (since I am typing this a little ahead of time, I haven't quite decided if I'm going to actually look through the online version, or wait until my hard copy comes in a couple of days ... decisions, decisions!).
In the mean time, I was able to do a non-DUDE, sweet-baby-girl card!! I was totally inspired to makes this from THIS adorable card I saw on Carrie Gaskin's blog. Stinkin' ca-YOOT, right?? I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out how she fanned the pleated thing at the top (and believe-you-me, I tried EVERYTHING!), so I adapted my "fan" to the thing you see at the top of my card. It is actually three of the Blossom Punch shapes tucked under the panel. I also ran them through the paper crimper, but you can't really tell from the photo. I like how it turned out.
