I'm baaack! I was just away for the weekend at my annual spring Creative Escape Weekend Retreat put on by my upline, Desiree Spenst! So I have lots to share with you as it was a very productive time. We were here:
The card I would like to share with you was the last one I made at the retreat and I made it for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #245 this week. I had to guess at the sketch which I had seen previously, because I couldn't access it on line, so I was hoping I got it right.
What do you think?
- One of the best thing about stamping retreats is that you have access to stamp sets and tools that you don't own yourself. While I have a lot of stamps and accessories, I didn't own this set and it didn't really ping my radar at all when I saw it in the Annual Catalogue, but it seemed the ideal solution to this problem of 5 shapes in a line at the bottom of the card. It's called Birthday Surprise and I really like the sketchy style and the variety of birthday images.
- I took one last look at Best Year Ever, the Sale-A-Bration DSP that is available today and tomorrow only as Sale-A-Bration comes to an end! Did you get some? There's still time! I'm really going to miss it because I love the colours and designs.
- The colour scheme includes some of the colour in the Best Year Ever DSP - Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry! Let's hear it for the 6 Cs! Yay! The ribbon and button are from the Sale-A-Bration reward, Best Year Ever Accessory Pack, including ribbon and buttons in those same 6 C colours. Get it now or forever hold your peace!
- The 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch created the little scalloped backing for the button and some Crushed Curry Baker's Twine.
In other news, Sale-A-Bration ends TOMORROW!
