This is what we made at the catalog party on Friday night. I totally copied it from Wizardshangout. It was lots of fun to just hang out with friends and talk, and play of course. Creating something always makes me happy.
I also liked it so much, I decided to make another one for my aunt. Her birthday was coming up and her favorite color being purple, I changed the pinks to purples. My family then had disagreements on which one they liked better. What do you think?  And I ran out of black brads. They really add to the card.
All supplies are Close to My Heart
Stamp set: Treasure Life
Ink colors: Creme Brulee, Olive, Tulip, Sorbet, Black
Card Stock: White, Creme Brulee, Olive, Tulip
For second card, substitute Tulip ink and card stock with Pansy Purple and Sorbet ink with Petal.

A New Month

July...mid summer.  Where has the time gone? We are done moving, for now, and I am ready to get stamping and scrapbooking again. The summer idea books are here, and they are fun! I'm going to show them off at a catalog party at my house on July 17th. We will have make and takes and refreshments. Come and see what's new and visit with friends. I will also have a calender of classes you can sign up for.
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
