My confession…

I must confess, when I first saw the Petal Parade stamp set in the
Sale-a-bration catalog, I didn’t care for it at all!  But, I chose the set as one of my free SAB items and thought it would force me out of my comfort zone to use a set that didn’t speak to me at first.  Now, I can tell you I am in love with the half flower (or peacock feathers) as some of my stampers call the image that I have stamped in So Saffron in this card.  So this just goes to show you, sometimes you need to look past your first impression and just go for it!

Lot’s of my favorites!

This is a card we’re making tonight at my stamp of the month class.  It features many of my favorite things such as the Perfect Pennants stamp set (everyone at the class gets the stamp set to take home) Retro Fresh DSP (have I mentioned that I LOVE this paper?) the Banner Blast stamp set and coordinating Banner punch (both Sale-a-bration items) as well as Calypso Coral (which is my favorite color) and the pretty Sale-a-bration bakers twine).  This card goes together in no time which is another of my favorites!
