Hello. As you know the trend this week is a showing of cards with a flair of "blasts from the past". Voila was a stamp set that grew on me over time and then suddenly it was retired. I was so sad to see it go. I don't think I'm ready to let it go to MY retired list. I think I could sub a teddy bear for that cute chef in the same lay out. What do you think? Oh, now I need to order the Beary Best Friends stamp set (page 85). Do you see it? I think I might need everything on that page! So let's get us some Stampin' Up cardstock, Black Stazon ink, Scallop Trim Border punch, heart to Heart punch, pink ribbon and some markers. Let's get stampin'! Ready, Set, Go!!!

So good to have spent some time with you. See you soon and God bless you.

I have some ideas floating around in my head, I just need to get them in motion. Well, back to today's card. Sorry, The designer paper is retired.

Vintage Vogue

Yea!!! Another Vintage Vogue card. I kinda/sorta challenged Irene to make this card for me. I gave her all the ingredients to use and she was done in about an hour. She didn't really ponder it to much. She just got to work. I think she enjoyed it and I think it turned out lovely. The retired chunky glitter was her own personal touch. I was so impressed with the end result. I guess the recipe should follow next. Here it goes.

Stamp set: Vintage Vogue
Paper: Whisper White #100730 $6.95; Green Galore, Gable Green, Pink Passion and Tea Party DSP (all retired)
Ink: Pink Passion (retired)
Accessories: Paper snips #103579 $9.95; 5 petal flower punch #119880 $16.95; chunky glitter retired

I love punches and I love the paper snips. A must have in my paper crafting. Have a blessed day. Hasta manana. Anyone know how to use the tilde? Please let me know in your comment.

Tote-ally Tess

Greetings and welcome. How was your week end? I had a great time beginning with Saturday when a very best friend came over just to hang out with me. We can be so serious and we can be so silly and corny. We compliment each other well. After she left my Mel came over for another blog class. Me, being the student. She is such a good friend. Always so willing to help. Sunday was church with another service that blessed me "to the max". Later, I had a delicious dinner with another best friend at Claim Jumpers. Ice cream sundays at Baskin Robbins topped off the evening for us. Do I venture to say how absolutely full we were at the end of the evening?!! Have you been admiring Tess in her beautiful outfit? She's looking good, right? I had fun creating this card. But I'm not crazy about my letters looking like one word. I seem to always see imperfections in my own work. I'm my own worst critic, I guess. I made this card this past June using retired inks and papers. They were some of my favorites. I love the color combo. The recipe for this card is as follows:

Stamp set: Tote-ally Tess
Paper: Whisper White #100730 $6.95; Pink Passion, Green Galore and Gable Green (retired)
Ink: Black Stazon #101406 $7.95; Pink Passion, Green Galore, Gable Green, Summer Sun, and Blush Blossom all retired
Accessories: Whisper White grograin ribbon #109025 $4.95; Aqua Painter brush #103954 $16.95; Big Shot #113439 $99.95; Textured embossing folder Petals A Plenty #116824 $7.95

Sorry, I can't seem to come with the name of the alphabet set. Thank you for visiting. Stay tuned for the next card.

Friends Are Flowers That Never Fade

Good morning friends, Guess what? Here I have another close up of the fourth card in the group. This card (as well as the others) can be redesigned according to your preference. For instance this card opens on the east side. You may "rearrange" it to open on the south side by turning it. Watching my ladies "do their own thing" with my designs has always impressed me. They are more creative than they think. As a teacher, I feel gratified to see them go out of the box. If you have any questions regarding the kit or any specific card, just ask. Have a blessed week end and I'll see you next week.
