A Walk to Remember

Okay, I admit it!  I'm a sucker for sappy movies!  I'll cry at the drop of a hat.  Heck, I even cried during "Babe" - a pig for heaven's sake!  One of the sappiest I've watched was "A Walk to Remember" with Mandy Moore!  Maybe mostly for this song, "My Only Hope".

It used to bother my kids no end, and they took to turning to look at me whenever the plot got a bit syrupy!  But lately, they've been way more emotional themselves, probably due to having babies, and now the tables are turned!! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Today's card reminded me of this movie, A Walk to Remember, because the stamp set I used is called Nature Walk, and we're going to have to remember it because it is one of the retiring sets this year.

  • The colours I picked for this card, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit are just gorgeous and work so much better together than I would have ever thought.  
  • I threw a bit of Certainly Celery in there as well for the leaves and the butterfly.
  • The DSP is from Birds of a Feather and will be retiring June 3 as well.
  • I inked up the flower stalk stamp with Stampin' Write Markers to get the two colours in there.
  • The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen, which will be around for another year at least, and thank goodness, because it is such a wonderful sentiment set.

  • I used Pool Party Core'dinations card stock, embossed with the Honeycomb embossing folder and sanded to reveal the lighter core.  The great news is that we will be able to order Core'dinations card stock in every colour once the new catalogue is in effect!
If you want to get your hands on Nature Walk before it is gone, just like Jamie in "A Walk to Remember",  you need to order it from me before June 3, 2013.  If you email or phone me to order before Thursday night, May 30,  you will be entered in my Mystery Hostess Last Chance contest to win free product from the Hostess benefits that Stampin' Up offers. 

 Each order will be given an entry and if your order (before shipping and tax) is $40 or more you will get another entry for each $40 you spend.  If you prefer to shop on-line, just use this Hostess Code (6XRSSFD6) when you place your order and I will enter you in the draw as well.

Don't be THAT PERSON, who waited too long to order and was disappointed!
