But, I said I LIKE you!


Sorry, but I couldn't resist ONE more card in celebration of the colors of NEW Scrapland! Can you find it in your heart to accept one more!?! Look at "Trigger!" I just couldn't ignore him... He looks so insistent. Impatiently waiting... for someone to notice, his loyalty... His flawlessly festooned presentation... Look at that breast collar! I can just "hear" him! "Haaaayyyyyyy!"

Then, there was THIS sketch from Get Sketchy!

I flipped it on its side, so that I could really celebrate the wonderfulness of this Trigger image from this fantastic piece off fabric by Robert Kaufman...

Of course, I had to play with the word, "hey"... but you're probably ready for something other than "YEE HAW!" {hee hee} No, I've not calmed down about the completion of "New Scrapland!" but I'm more convinced than ever that I need to have you all over for a big scrapping hoe-down! I'm so delighted by all of the fun and funny feedback from my lil' REVEAL.... Thanks again, for your kind attention and thoughtfulness... I promise to leave these glorious colors for a while... Sweet and talented Dawn from WPLUS9 design studio has begun to share some samples from her new stamp line, and I am eager to begin to celebrate the images she has created as well. I hope you'll go check out her sensational samples and give her some love... It's such an exciting time in the blogosphere ~ 2010 has so much promise for us all, and I'm so honored to be sharing this journey with you!

{Yee Haw!}

This is great Elise! You celebrate new Scrapland for as long as you want! I would be celebrating too if I had that awesome space to play in! :)

You are just rockin' Trigger! Love the fabric, that rafia bow, and OF COURSE, all that Tim Holtz love! And yes, I oh so agree with Kelley......a creative home like yours could provide me many an hour, minute, or moment of bliss (now, now, let's just pretend those things under the category of responsibilities do not exist.....for at least a few of those minutes and moments!). Ahhhh...sigh. Your "Hay"! makes me smile! :> Night-night.

Just love Trigger - so fancy and fabulous! You celebrate for as long as you like my dear, getting a brand new creative space is just a wonderful experience... makes a girl just dizzy with delight! How did you tie that rafia???? I just ended up with lots of little bits when I tried to knot some! Hugs to you, Jo x

Was Trigger already stuffed when this likeness was done?
I know I am such a bad girl...such a wickedness oozing out of the old Oz tonite.
Love the card and you never have to leave those colors as far as I am concerned. They are way to lucious to not celebrate.
I bet you are having fun with your new DT gig! Remember there is work envolved.... Like you could drag me away from work like that... not bloody likely! I better go, before I get myself in trouble. love ya oodles, Oz

What a fun card girl! It is just so you... so fun!

Savitri said...

Gorgeous!! Hey, if I were you I'd be celebrating for a few weeks! Esp. considering it took you a month to put it together? I mean a month to me (if I were to put together such a room) would equal no sleep or high on coffee or a husband who wants to divorce me or a kids who'd want another momma :P So that's a huge accomplishment, lady!!! Still JEALOUS but I'm getting better. Maybe in the UK I can make the closet of a room in the house we found something 1/10 as fab as yours.
