In the meantime, I have a few other new toys to play with while I am waiting! Today I used the new Bow Builder Punch along with several other new items to make this cute card:
For the polka-dot background, I used one of the cards from Project Life Seasonal Snapshot (a carry over item from the Holiday catalog). The "happy" cut out is from the Hello You Thinlets (pg. 31 of Occasions) and "birthday" is from Crazy About You (also on pg 31). I used Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Hello Honey card stock to make the little bows. They are so easy to do!! After punching them out, I used a pencil eraser dipped in white ink to make polka dots on the bows.

Here's another card I made with a new stamp set - One Tag Fits All. This set coordinates with the Note Tag Punch (pg 28 - Occasions) so it is easy to put together.
This is the card I made for the shoebox swap at Joanne's last Saturday. I stamped the jewel with Staz-On ink onto gold paper and cut it out before popping it up with a dimensional. The faux washi tape was made using the Tape It stamp set (pg 37 in big catalog). I stamped on vellum paper with gold in and heat embossed it. I finished it off with the gold sequin trim.
