In UPS We Trust

If you had read the juicy homages to the UPS man I've been seing on Splitcoast today from anxious Stampin' Up! demonstrators you'd be more than a little amused and also perhaps a wee bit worried for the men in brown.

We love our UPS man, stampers. They are the symbols of bright hope in our world. They each have a unique sound that our trained ears twitch to, no matter how far their booted feet are from the door.

They have been fed brownies, hugged, probably kissed and DEFINITELY chased down the street at this time of year. I've noticed that mine darts nimbly to the truck evading all of my attempts to catch him with a little UPS man net so that I can go see what else is in his truck.

Mine has been here twice today, along with my FedEx guy. It's a good day.

It brought me my SNEAK PEEKS from the new catalog!! WHEEEEE! I had that same paralysis I always have - what do I play with first??

So I picked my faves - the new Cherry Cobbler cardstock, the Newsprint DSP, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and Studio Sketches.

I watercolored the image with Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler and cut the edges with the card fronts die.

And that's just the beginning!! Maybe they should rename UPS - SU!PS!

  6. LOL.

    Too cute. I know what you mean about The UPS man, I'm waiting on my sneak peek products too.

    Also since I work at a The UPS Store, he brings me work to do. Which in this economy is very important.

    Love your card. Those colors are scrumptious.

  9. Wow! what a pretty card. I still have not done a preorder but I sure need to.

    thanks for sharing and I love our ups guy! My kids all know him better than me but that is because he also delivers to the cold stone down the street.(that is where they worked).
