Occasions Alphabet and Fox and Friends by Stampin Up and me

Good Wednesday Morning dear Stampers. I hope you are having a beautiful day.

Here In Calgary, Alberta, Canada there has been so much rain in the last week. When I looked outside our window this morning there was a serious river on our street from all the rain that was pouring down. I am sure the trees and the grass are loving it. & Calgary hasn`t looked this green and fresh in July I am sure.

Oh and then last night.. The house was all nice an quiet and clean (yip.. This rain makes me want to clean my home on the inside) when all of a sudden I heard Reuben screaming on the top of his lungs. He had fallen a sleep, which was a good thing. But then this nasty yellow/black Wasp started stinging him on his back, his leg and his hand.. I felt so deeply sad for him. I know that pain is just horrible. I ran to him as fast as I could but had no idea what I could do for him besides killing that almost stoned wasp. I just held my son and cuddled him, trying not to touch the area`s of where he was stung. So sad! After he got used to the pain I guess, some water and some Calgary Rodeo Stampeding on tv, he was able to relax a bit. He`s better now.. Still a bit stiff in his leg and hand. Poor kid.

I am so pumped up about my card today. I used the beautiful sketch from the Mojo Monday Challenge ;199` and the fun fun color Challenge from the Paper Players `55`. I am so thrilled that I had time to create my card.

I used for the first time my new Occasions Alphabet Stampin Up stamp set. (123598 - $38.95) This set has 26 beautiful stamps. I just love each one of them and I am sure I will use this set a lot.

For the card stock colors I used `Real Red`, Basic grey, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake from Stampin Up. Isn`t that ribbon just the perfect touch for this card. It is the Baja Breeze 1/2 `` Seam Binding Ribbon (122331 - $9.50) It is so easy to create nice looking bows with this ribbon.

Well, there is a lot more to say about my card, but sadly I don`t have the time to write it all down. If you have any questions, pleae contact me. I would love to hear from you.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Inky hugs, Pauline

    Beterschap voor Reuben! Vreselijk, zo'n agressieve wesp op je kamer... Arm kereltje...

    Ik hoop volgende week de nieuwe catalogus in de brievenbus te vinden... Er staan leuke dingen in die ik graag zou willen kopen... Hahaha!!!

  3. This is beautiful, Pauline!! I love the fun monkey and that sentiment. I have been thinking about getting that stamp set as well. Just not sure yet. Love what you did with the challenge for the Paper Players too! I need to put my thinking cap on and get cracking on my card!

    And I hope Reuben feels better soon! Wasp stings are no fun! I know the sting all too well - I was stung by one on the lip when I was in second grade. I was ahead of the plumped lip trend when I was in second grade... ouch!!!
