I like looking at summery cards in my stamp room during the long Wisconsin winters... and this one fits the bill on both counts--summery card and a long winter! Well, it really hasn't been THAT long, yet, but since nothing has basically melted at all since our blizzard the Thursday before Christmas, it feels like we have been in a long freeze. Can't do anything about that, so I'm wearing slippers in the stamp room and sipping beverages from my new Keurig (!!!) and working on spring and summer cards from the 2013 Occasions Catalog.
Summer Starfruit sure has grown on me in the six months it has been available from Stampin' Up as part of our trendy new In Color line. I like it best paired with a nice bring white and then some shade of blue. It looks great with every blue in our lineup! Here I put it with lace tape, flower trim and the new Pool Party satin ribbon that will be available FREE as part of the Sale A Bration 2013 reward choices. The Designer Series Paper on this card is also one of the choices--love it!
Can't wait for Sale A Bration to start officially on January 22nd! Two weeks from tomorrow!!! If you haven't booked your SAB workshop yet, get crackin!' And mark your calendars for two new fun events--and all-day scrapbooking event on February 2nd, and a 10-10-$10 event on March 9th. Finally got the venue nailed down for those--details forthcoming. It's going to be a fabulously fun winter stamp session!
