I had the best surprise today.  I'm doing a card swap with some friends, and instead of sending them to a hostess and having her mail them to everyone, we're just sending everyone a card.  It's wonderful, because that means every few days, we're going to be getting a card instead of one, big overwhelming package of cards.  When I went to the mailbox today, there were two in there – and they're lovely!  I'll show them to you soon, but first –

Here's the card Liz designed for the meeting Sunday.

Isn't this gorgeous?  The flower is made with the Fun Flowers die in the Occasions mini, so all you have to do is run a half sheet of card stock through the Big Shot with the die.  We sponged a little Saraha Sand ink on the edges, and – oops!  I had a little Pacific Point on my sponge and one petal is a little blue.  Well, it was cold yesterday!  (Remember in The Sound of Music, the kids said they had been picking berries?  And they were blue strawberries, because it was so cold.  That's what's up with this flower.)

I thought looping linen thread around the center was fun, and I really loved the way she did the sentiment tag.  We stamped on Very Vanilla card stock, punched each side with the Scallop Edge Corner punch, then trimmed it down.  It makes a great "faux ribbon" slide. 

Stamp Sets:  Bliss (Sale-a-Bration set), Something to Celebrate (Level 2 hostess set, Occasions mini catalog)
Ink:  Sahara Sand, Pacific Point classic
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Pacific Point card stock
Other:  Framed Tulips embossing folder, Fun Flowers die, Big Shot, Scallop edge corner punch, Ice Cream Parlor ribbon & button pack (Sale-a-Bration), linen thread, sponge, stampin' dimensionals, mini glue dots, pearl & rhinestone jewels

Thanks for stopping in!
