Howdy Partner!!

Note: If you have been to the KL Stampin N Scrappin DT blog . . . sorry for the re-run. :)
Howdy Partner! High Hopes are HERE!! :)
and I will be adding more Christmas and winter ones very soon.
(so if there is one you really want, please let me know so I can add it to my order).
Okay, so the BasicGrey paper and Magnolias also came, and I had so many new things to play with, I didn't know where to start. I really wanted to dive into the new BasicGrey paper -- Eskimo Kisses, Indian Summer or Nook and Pantry, but I didnt' have much time this morning. You see I stayed up until about 3 a.m. getting envelopes ready to ship out this morning,
and then got back up at 7:30 to get my son around
(should be busy typing right now . . . shhh don't tell on me).
If you were waiting on an order, the shipments all arrived yesterday and they were on their way to you 8 a.m. EST this morning! Wooohooo! So, I had a card kit already to go with this cute Clarabelle and Riley stamp from a swap I had participated in, but I hadn't gotten a chance to make a sample card
like I usually do with the contents before sending it out.
So, here he is all decked out in green and blue (and yellow) with his favorite little calf.
I was so nervous about getting it done in time that I forgot the stars until I had it all together, so a little added distressing (me and the paper) trying to get those puppies only through one layer as they wouldn't push through all 3 layers. In case you are wondering, they aren't brads. I picked up some of the stars and hearts a while back when they were on clearance. They have prongs on the back like the items you would use in a Be-Dazzler (?sp). They work great when you remember them on the first layer. LOL Just pop them through the paper and fold over the prongs and you are set. They stay rather flat then too.

These are all of the Copic colors I used
(need some more shades of blue to add to my Copic collection though).

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin N Scrappin!
