Happy Mail and JAI

Hi All, I know I haven't been around much, blame it on the heat and the darn summer flu that has hit me.... We have had temperatures of up to 43 Celsius, (109.4F) So, I've been keeping out of the craft room, and staying in the lounge with the air con....
I got some happy mail yesterday, in the form of a Stampin' Up! Order, which was much anticipated!
Very excited by the Sale-a-bration stamp sets and the two 'kids' stamp sets I got as well... It has been a while since I've bought new stamps, so it was nice to have something new to play with....
This card fulfils the colour requirements of Just Add Ink's colour challenge this week. 
It's hard to tell in the photo, but the sentiment and swirl are done in Soft Suede, and the border punch at the bottom is Early Espresso (which seems to be a crazy popular colour!) 
This stamp set is one of the Free Sale-a-bration stamp sets, click here to find out how you can get this or one of the other 3 adorable stamp sets, for FREE
Stay tuned for a scrapbook layout!
