We're Ready to Set Sail!!!

We are leaving tomorrow for the Cruise! I am busily trying to pack and finish up last minute things! I am setting up a few projects to post while I am gone so hopefully you will see some cards made with the some of the stamps from the upcoming Summer Mini! I'm not sure whether we will be on-line much if at all but if we do, I'll try and post some photos along the way as well. Happy Stamping!!

Our travel documents came in this cute clutch! Since this is my first cruise I'm not too sure what to expect but have been told there are pillow gifts each night from Stampin' Up! How fun!

The Love Affair Continues...

Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary. We share the day with my parents who celebrated their 63rd anniversary. That's 99 years between us! This is the card I made them.

My love affair with the Vintage look is going strong! I was playing with the new Smooch Spritz from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog. It is perfect for Vintage! The card base is Natural Ivory card stock. I wheeled the Very Vintage wheel with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder over the front of the card. Then I lightly "smooched" the card with the Gold Glow Smooch Spritz. It is really pretty! A light shimmery metallic look! I wheeled Versamark on the Always Artichoke piece as well. I stamped and watercolored the flowers from Elements of Style in the upcoming Summer Mini catalog and die cut the butterfly with the Beautiful Butterflies die. It's hard to see but the flowers have Dazzling Diamonds glitter on them. The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and Vanilla Satin Ribbon and Vanilla Hodge Podge hardware finishes it off!
