Best of Greetings Item # 133485

Here's my first one. I am growing very fond of the Crisp Cantaloupe and Pear Pizzazz color combo!

I used the Flower Shop bundle along with the Little Leaves die.

Here's my next one:
This card is a very simple one-layer card.  I paired the Best of Greetings set with Flowering Flourishes.

This card features an image from Thoughts & Prayers.

RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour - Chalk Talk

Welcome to the RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour.  This month some of our most talented stampers are featuring the stamp set called Chalk Talk from the newly released Stampin' Up! catalog. 

In celebration of going to Convention this week, I got all excited and created several items for you to enjoy.  Here's the first one:

Here's a close-up of how I created the tag with a few extra layers of hearts.

and here's a 3-D item featuring the Tag a Box:

You can fit lots of things into these cute boxes.  Here I've filled it with thin mints, you know the Girl Scout cookies??? I had them hidden in the freezer.  This special box went to my husband Randy who celebrated a birthday earlier this week.  At first I had the "something" stamped in red.  But I changed it to green after I decided what was going in the box.

So many projects here. If you have any questions, please send me an email.

Next up on the tour is Tamra Davis.  Can't wait to see her at Convention!  Click on the image below or go to her blog following this link: http://thecardladies.com.
