This week at Just Add Ink, Mae has challenged us to create something inspired by the cover of the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  It is such a cute, fun, scene, that also featured at Stampin' Up!'s recent Convention; I just love it.  Take a look:

A little Ikea frame has been sitting unloved in my cupboard for a while.  I decided to make a 'sampler' of the new Stampin' Up! In Colors, to display in my craft room.  Here's what I came up with, inspired by the photo above:

...... and a closer view of a few of the "punchies":
