I am also excited by the fact that my BBB (big brown box) with my pre-order for the Holiday Catalogue arrived on Friday. I had too many errands to run Friday, and the visitors arrived early Saturday, so didn't get a chance to play till now. I have managed to mount a couple of stamp sets, including Four Feathers, which I KNOW will be a favourite. Another stamp set I received this order is from the new-ish annual catalogue. And Many More has 23 sentiments in it, covering babies, birthdays and almost every other event you can dream up. It actually took me quite a long time to put all those stamps on blocks and match up the labels. I've used one and a half on my card - thanks actually has "Give" before it.
I loved the challenge colours at Colour Q, it took me a long time to start to love Summer Starfruit, but now I hope it returns sometime when Stampin' Up! do another re-jig of colours! It's great to use these colour challenges, as this one in particular used a combination I would never have dreamed of, but even DH has commented on the colours. You probably can't see, but I used the fourth of the Four Feathers to stamp on the Summer Starfruit layer.
Thanks for popping by my blog,
