Hi Friends! Well it's been a crazy week, let me tell ya. Hubby and I spent the weekend moving from New Brunswick to our new home in Nova Scotia and have decided we're going to live here for the rest of our lives...moving is SO MUCH WORK! Ugh! LOL We also had a nightmarish experience with the moving company we used - I'll spare you the details - but suffice to say we are glad it's all over and now we can begin to settle in. I'll take some photos of our new "Home Sweet Home" in the next little while to share with you. It is soooooo peaceful and pretty here, nothing but the sounds of birds and our hilltop view of the blueberry fields. Love it!
Before we moved I created a card for today's post to give you a sneak peek of new 2014-2016 In Colours, which will be released when the new Stampin' Up! catalogue comes out on June 2nd. I am smitten with these colours, I tell ya, SMITTEN! I think you will be too - check them out:
Aren't they lovely together??? Stunning. The new colours are called Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist. You'll be able to order them when the new catalogue comes out next week - only demonstrators get to play with new products a month prior to the release date - definitely a perk of being a part of the Stampin' Up! family!!! Click HERE if you want to get in on the fun! Pssst - did ya notice the new "Mossy Meadow" ribbon too???
I made this card with "Lovely Romance" - the same stamp set I featured in my guest post on Frenchie's blog (click HERE to if you missed it).

I also used the new 2014-2016 In Colour Markers on the flower stamp. And a Stamp-a-ma-Jig was a key product I needed to make this card, in order to line up my stamp to create the background.
I really love how this card came out and it was so nice to take a few minutes to make it amongst the hustle and bustle of our lives right now. Stamping is definitely my perfect for the stresses in life! The act of creating just seems to add zen and balance back into my world, that's for sure.
IMPORTANT info Stampin' Up! has slashed prices by 25%-50% off selected retired items! Don't miss out on this amazing deal and products are only available on a first come first served basis, while supplies last!!!! This promotion ends June 4th (but I suspect many items will be sold out by then....)
Enjoy the day and HAPPY STAMPING!
