Patience? Ha!

I laugh in the face of patience! Ok, here's what happened. The new SU! catalog came out, and I was excited, but thought, hey, Sale-a-Bration is but a short month away, so let's wait it out. Riiiiiiight. First of all, January is not a short month. Also, I am fond of saying that patience is a virtue, but I'm not very virtuous. Take that however you need to. So, my box came today while the girls were still in school. Oh, yes, the stamping fairies were smiling down upon me today. So, I ripped that bad boy open, mounted 1 of my sets (Kind Thoughts, pg. 119) and made this. It's not my favorite card, but I do like the big swirly doohicky thing in the center there. I'm sure you'll be seeing it again. And again. Let's see how many different ways I can use it, shall we? Oh, yeah. I didn't use it here, but I just have to say that the Berry Bliss paper is even more delicious in person than in the catty.

Stamps: Kind Thoughts (SU!), Faux Ribbon (Papertrey), Ink: Lovely Lilac (SU!), Paper: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst DSP (SU!), Accessories: oval punches (SU!), rhinestone brads
