I found the pattern at Victorine Originals and just printed it directly onto my cardstock. Not very happy with my little bird so I think I will have to practice with that one :)
Supplies: Cardstock - kraft, old olive, chocolate chip, very vanilla and bashful blue. Stamps: Woodgrain background. Punches: Sizzix leaf diecut, two step bird punch, scalloped edge border. Ink: Chocolate Chip. I have had the flowers in my stash for a looong time! not sure where they came from.

Anyway, this is my first week playing and thankfully my desk is not toooo messy (given that I can see a large part of it for a change). But that is because I haven't really made anything in the last four days. I am currently planning a scrapbooking project believe it or not! so I just have some photos and bits and pieces on my desk while I select what I am going to use. There is also lots of other stuff still hanging around from the last few things I made ... so I must make sure I pack those away tomorrow.
But for now I am off to iron school uniforms and tidy up a bit. Hubby is coming home in the morning after being away since Easter so we are all pretty excited and I want to make sure the house is nice and 'shiny' when he gets back.

Just a quick post, and then I have to run. Here is my card for this week's challenge over at Just Add Ink. I have kept this one very simple.
Cardstock and ribbon by Stampin' Up! in pretty in pink. Paper by Taylored Expressions and image by Stamping Bella. Like I said ... pretty simple :)

In the meantime I thought I would post the new Colour Collections that Stampin' Up! will be releasing when the new Idea Book and Catalogue comes out in September. I am so excited about these new colour families, they are just gorgeous! There are five new additions to the permanent colours as well as 10 previous In-Colours which will be a permanent addition to the new collections.
Of course to make room for the new colours some of the old ones are being sent out to pasture. But the great thing is that we have plenty of notice so there is time for you to stock up if there are any that you really really love.
As for me, I am devastated to see Taken with Teal going as it is my absolute favourite colour and there is nothing else similar, however I am sure that the new gorgeous colours will help to console me :) And of course I will be sure to stock up big time before the end of August to make sure I have plenty to keep me going.
Here are the charts for the new colours. Note: that the ever popular Kraft has been re-named Crumb Cake (how cute is that name!) so it has not gone missing and will be of the Neutrals Collection. And just for your easy reference, here is a list of the retiring colours as they appear in their current colour families:
Glorious Green, Green Galore, Gable Green, YoYo Yellow, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue
Pale Plum, Blush Blossom, Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace
Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun
Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Taken With Teal, Handsome Hunter.
