Don’t Look Ethel! – Sneak Peak

Once again, your action news reporter in the booth at the gym,
the disturbance at the basketball playoff.
Pardon me, sir, did you see
what happened?

Yeah, I did. Half time,
I's just goin' down thar to get Ethel a snow
And here he come, right out of the cheap seats,
dribbling, right
down the middle of the court.
Didn't have on nothing but his PF's.
Made a hook shot and got out through the concessions stand.
I hollered up
at Ethel, I said, "Don't look, Ethel!"
But it was too late. She'd
already got a free shot.
Grandstandin', right there in front of the
home team

Hee Hee, for those of you old enough to remember, that's Ray Steven's, The Streak. My Dad loved that song. If someone was walking around with too much skin showing, he'd yell – Don't Look Ethel! Still makes me giggle.

If you don't want to see some of the newest products in the Stampin' Up! catalog, you may want to shield your eyes. Don't look! For everyone else, I caution you . . . this card uses a paper and the new in-colors you can't buy until July 1 if you're not a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. This may be more of a tease than that streaker!

When I saw the first sneak peek of this new designer paper, Raspberry Lemonade, I wasn't sure I'd like these color combinations. But, oh dear, I'm loving these jewel tones and that distressed Basic Grey style.

My new sneak-peak stamps are still being shipped, so I combined this paper with my still-favorite mini catalog set, Scene in a Garden. Unfortunately, this set didn't make it into the new catalog, so it will go away at the end of this month. The rest of the recipe includes two of the newest colors, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo – as yummy as the names sound!

Sweet Comments

  1. omgggggg lol Very nice card, but I just cracked up at the ray stevens lyrics. He’s soooo funny. The streak and the Mississippi Squirrel Revival were always my two favs of his. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

  2. Oooooh, this is so beautiful!!

  3. Bee-utiful card! Good grief girl, you bought back memories of Jr. High. At the end of 8th grade Ray Stevens was so popular and someone decided to streak the last day of school that year. The ENTIRE school body was chasing after a naked body!
    I also remember Ahab the Arab- “she’s got rings on her fingers and bells on her toes and a bone thru her nose- ho, ho”.
    Congrats on the publication in the scrapbooking mag. Just read about it in the July issue of SS! Way to go!
