How's your age awareness? Mine is too darn good! I went for a long walk yesterday with some friends and ended up with a sore foot that I had to ice to relieve the swelling and pain! That wouldn't have happened even three years ago! My body keeps telling me that it doesn't work as well as it used to. As I make an effort to exercise to improve my fitness level, the old body keeps letting me know that it isn't going to be as easy as all that! So, yes, I'm very Age Aware! But all this to tell you that I used the Age Awareness stamp set for stamping this new card for a sketch challenge from As You See It Challenges, and complimented it with new paper from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack. Here's the sketch:
I stuck pretty closely to the sketch for this one because I loved the opportunity to use the bow builder punch again. I love those little bows!
- Don't you just adore the colours in this Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack. They are so bright and full of life! Perfect for a birthday celebration! I like the way the balloons I stamped using an image from Age Awareness echo the balloons on the designer paper. Here's some great news - the DSP stacks are now 6" x 6" which means the paper can be oriented either landscape or portrait, depending upon the way your card is turned. Still a great deal, you get forty-eight double-sided sheets (4 each of 4 designs) for only $10! And have you noticed that Stampin' Up! has started offering a coordinating cardstock pack for each of its Designer Series Paper collections! Helps to keep your projects coordinated and enables you to get the most from your DSP!
- The Bow Builder punch is a favourite of mine since it arrived on the scene last year. It makes the most attractive little embellishments to add to all your projects. Be aware that you must punch twice to have enough pieces to assemble the bow!
Well, that's it for today! It's Friday and time to wrap up so I can work on preparation for my new Catalogue Launch tomorrow from 1 to 4 pm. I hope to see you there. There will be games, goodies, and make and takes featuring new catalogue products. Be prepared for great door prizes! And I have so many retired products looking for new homes! For every dollar you spend on retired merchandise, you will get 50% in free new products! (Rumour has it that you might even get to sample some real Mint Macarons!!) Let me know if you're planning on attending here.Product List
