9 Days and Counting!

Can you believe it?? We're only 9 days away from a brand spankin' new Idea Book and Catalog!! In honor of the upcoming NEW NEW NEW Stampin' Up year, I'll be counting down the next 9 days with 9 fantastical projects using new (and some fantastical continuing) products to give you a sneak peak into what's ahead of you this year!!'s to Day #9!
TAAAA-DDDAAAAAA!! OMG, I love the new stamp set Because I Care!! Do you love it? Well, it can be yours FREE, because it's one of the new Level 1 Hostess Stamp sets!! It made me all giddy when I first saw it. :D I stamped the hydrangea with StazOn on Watercolor paper and then colored it in with Marina Mist (NEW!), Perfect Plum and Old Olive markers, followed up with blending with my Aqua Painter. I think that this color combo is going to be one of my "Go To" combos. I just love the look together. I distressed the edges of everything but the Top Note die cut, and finished up with SU's scrumptious satin ribbon in Old Olive.
