Now that I have broken open my Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP … I can’t resist using them. This is such a gorgeous colour combination … and one that is impossible to “stuff up” … that my hands keep reaching for them. Anything I have made with these yummy papers has turned out beautifully! So … if you are keen on these papers … you will need to ORDER today!!! The Spring Mini is disappearing on Monday … and these papers certainly won’t be offered again.
I love this sweet stamp set, too!!! It is just perfect for embossing … which is what I have done with the Vellum Tree. The snowflakes make a fool proof background on the white card. Two things that I have done on this card I had spotted when I was doing some “blog hopping” a little while ago. The first is the embossed Snow Swirled Tree … done on vellum cardstock with white embossing powder and then carefully trimmed around with snips … and the second is the scallop edges on the phrase … isn’t this just lovely! And … makes a rectangle phrase embellishment so much more interesting!!!
So … I wanted to apologise to all my blog friends! I just have had noooooo time (seriously) in the last few weeks to do ANY blurfing … but I am really hanging out to visit you all. Thanks to those who have continued to visit … and especially to those who have taken the time to say hi! I really do appreciate your encouragement … and I will do some blog hopping as soon as I am able! Still playing catch up … and until after the funeral on Monday (which in itself will eat a big hole in my newsletter prep time) … I will probably still be doing that for the next few days!!! So much to do … so little time!!! 😉 Oh … and to top off what has been a challenging week … my son-in-law’s uncle died yesterday after a long illness. So … whilst I didn’t know him … poor Jono & Stacey are dealing with a 3rd death in 2 weeks. Certainly makes you think, doesn’t it! ❓
C U Soon …
