Blogger's Challenge Week #31


I'm back! Sorry I didn't get to participate the last two weeks. The first week I was at Leadership with no time before I left to complete it. Last week I was out of town doing a couple classes with no time to make it before I left.

This week's Blogger's Challenge was to use the layout on page 141 of the big catalog (the welcome baby card) and I couldn't resist. So...here is a PREVIEW of something NEW coming up! I had received my preorder from the new Spring Occasions mini we got to order at Leadership and this "Tart & Tangy" stamp set with "Summer Picnic" paper was sitting on my table to be put away! I looked at that layout...looked at the stamp set and thought "perfect!" I added Hello that is from the Sweet Shapes set...I've been using that word a lot lately! I used the Pick A Petal brass template to paper pierce around the Scallop Circle punch. That is a great brass template with lots of uses!

Sets: Tart & Tangy, All in a Row, Sweet Shapes
C/S: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Summer Picnic DSP
Inks: Basic Black, Real Red, Old Olive markers
Other: 5/8 Old Olive ribbon, Tag corner punch, Olive mini brad, Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, Pick a Petal brass template and paper piercer

Love your card! So jealous as these two things (the set and matching paper) were the first things that went on my "gotta-have" list as soon as I saw the mini!! Love it.
