POPPIES AND PUNCHES AND DIES, OH MY!

The challenge today for the SUO blog was to take a thank you card up a notch.  I hope this is up a notch enough. :) I just LOVE these new poppies, and I have literally dreamed all day of uploading this card....they are so fun to play with and I LOVE them!!  This is my third card with the poppies and I can't wait to use some of the other ideas that are floating around in my head....the possibilities with this  stamp are endless!!   And see that adorable new little tiny label - which also comes in a stamp set.....so tiny and so adorable and along with that? A punch pack to match!  And how about that great new doily  - also a brand new die!!  I just love this time of year when I notice every time I open the catalog some new item that I had missed is staring at  me and whispering in my ears, Buy me, Buy me, Buy me!!  To color on this one I used markers and blenders....my favorite!!  Did I tell you all I earned the trip to Hilton Head SC this year with SU?? And I plan to take my darling grand daughter Layla with me.....I can't hardly wait - for some extra special one on one time with Layla.....in the end of September!  Until next time, keep on stampin, and keep on smilin!! Blessings, Karen
