Friends Forever


Can you tell I love using Parisian Summer DSP and One of a Kind together. They both worked so well for today's sketch challenge over at SCS. I knew I didn't want to stamp a circle image and then punch it out, so I decided on punching out the flowers from one of a kind and have them trail down the card. I am seriously in love with the sentiments from "Best Yet" as well, so I thought I could punch one out with a circle punch. It was a tight fit, but I made it work. I was so wishing I had the right color thread in my sewing machine, because I thought this design was needing some, but I didnt' want to change the bobbin and thread color. You should see my crazy stamp area...it looks like a bomb went off leaving bits of projects here and there. LOL!

Yesterday I went to Target to do a little Christmas shopping and found some delicious satin ribbon in the wedding section. I really liked the width and the price...15 yards for 2.99. I thought it seemed reasonable, so threw 3 different spools into my cart. I am sure I will be incorporating the other 2 colors in my next designs. I think my Saltbox Stamps are getting lonely...I will be pulling some out today and working on a few designs.

Has everyone seen the Stampin' Up! retirement list? I am losing some serious rubber. I told my husband that I wanted a new shelving system for my stamps, but maybe I won't need one, since I move my retired sets to a different system. I am really sad that so many are going...but I know that I will have to have a ton of new ones, too! Enough of my rambling! Thanks for fluttering by!

I had almost talked myself out of having to have that stamp set and punch but now...dang! Really a pretty card and you are killing me with the DP too! I didn't think I had to have that too! Elegant is right!
