I have had a whirlwind October. I was able to visit my niece and her family in Pennsylvania. From there, we went to upstate New York to visit my son. We decided to add in a day trip to Vermont and Massachusetts. It was a much needed vacation. The one thing I forgot, though, is that I always sneak and leave a card for my son to find after we’ve said our goodbyes. There were some items I needed to mail to him after we got back home, though, so I made sure to make him one. First I made the top card with So Saffron. Hunter advised me that it was a little too feminine and that I needed to make it with a shade of blue instead. Hence, the two cards you see. I love this DSP…it’s too bad it’s retired and I’m almost out of it. Those super cute little acorns crack me up!

I participate in a Swap Club with 6 other demonstrators. We exchange cards monthly. I wanted something happy for springtime, so I decided to go with this card:
Stamp Set: Lovely Amazing You Photopolymer
Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Rose Red, Whisper White, 2014-2016 Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink: Rose Red
Lovelies: Lost Lagoon Satin Ribbon, 2″ Circle Punch, 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Pearls Basic Jewels
I wanted to make a sweet card for my sweet Hunter. Everything “mini” is automatically cuter, so I chose Whisper White Notecards, which are 5″ x 3.5″. I knew I wanted to use the brand new set Lovely Amazing You. Stampin’ Up! just released this photopolymer set and it’s a huge hit – better get it while supplies last! I also took advantage of a couple Sale-A-Bration items on this card. Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper is perfectly happy as both the background of the card as well as the envelope liner. Best Year Ever Accessory Pack comes with both 3 colors of ribbon as well as 2 sizes of 3 colors each for the buttons. The Calypso Coral button adds a great splash of color. Punches make this card super easy and fun!
