I must first apologize for the delay in blogging this last week.  I typed up my post for Thursday, everything was set to go and I went to save it and my post disappeared.  I totally lost it!  I couldn't believe it.  I didn't have time to redo the whole thing again as Robin and I were trying to get things done for my Catalog Launch party on Saturday.  

I had ever intention on Saturday evening sitting down and writing a post about my party, but I was so tired that I couldn't even think straight.  Life has taken over my last two days and so, here I am a week later getting to a post.  I think when you look at my card for CASEing Tuesday this week, you will agree it was worth the wait. 

Have you ever made a card and have fallen in love with it? I am that way with this card.  I love, love, love the Leaf Ribbon that goes with the Animal Expedition Suite.  It is so pretty and different from any ribbon we have had since I became a demonstrator.  

Here is our inspiration card this week:

How cute is this rhinoceros?

When I first laid my ribbon on this card I was trying to figure out what was the best way to adhere this to the card. I tried different types of glue, but came to the realization that Glue Dots worked perfect!  I adhered them to the leaves and then laid it right where I wanted it on the card.  This ribbon is so awesome!  I hope Stampin' Up! makes more ribbon like this in the future!

This time I stamped the image on the back of my envelope.  I think I am going to have to do that more often.  I also stamped the same image on the inside of my card.  I wasn't sure about not coloring the images on the envelope and inside the card.  What do you think?  Would you color or leave it as is?

I sure hopes my friend likes her thank you note, I sure do!

I wanted to share with you some of the pictures I took of my set up for my open house.  I always forget to take pictures when people are here.  I get so interested in spending time with them, that I don't think of taking pictures.
