SU only almost :)

Izzy had an idea of her own this morning and I went with it LOL! She got out all of her books and read "by myself" for over an hour. Although we are now off on our schedule by an hour, it was too stinking cute to pass up. It was also too cute to not take a picture of LOL!
Here is when she spied me.
Hello everyone! I am working on my July Birthdays right now. With our vacation over the 4th, I really want to be ahead. I really haven't been feeling the best for some reason, hopefully it will pass soon. I have also been dying to go up and use more of my new SU colors and paper. I combined this with the Mojo Monday sketch
Here is my take
This is for my brother in law Ricardo who will be 37 LOL! He is married to Amy who is a my one and only down line with Stampin Up, so I try and make cards that are SU only for her. Wouldn't you know it the thickers felt root beer alpha is a perfect match for soft suede, so I had to use that as well. Since SU doesn't have that I figure what the heck LOL!
I am loving the new colors and dsp. This is Razzleberry Lemondae and it is yummy! I did a post earlier that was all gril and now I really like how the same paper can be all boy. Actually there is some of the new pink (can't remember the name sorry) in the background dsp, but with the other manly colors, I don't think you can really tell. I did some spounging since I kept everything else nonfrill.

It's a good life!
