Well, this month has been FULL!! Have you found that too? What is it about Spring and September? LOL!
Anyway, at the beginning of the month it was my brother’s birthday. We had a fun night out with him and his wife’s family, although our kids were a bit overexcited by the end of the evening!! This is the card I made for him.
You know, I think this is the first time I’ve ever used Brilliant Blue cardstock! But WOW, this colour combo really impressed me – Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa and Brilliant Blue. The inspiration for the card came from Live Laugh and Stamp with Karen here … what a gorgeous card! Thanks, Karen 🙂
All of the Very Vanilla cardstock you see is textured cardstock, which I’m addicted to! I’ve used the stamp set, Think Happy Thoughts, such a versatile set! And then I’ve paper pierced the middle strip with my mat pack. The big star brad is from the Star Designer Brads, which are a quality bargain at only $11.25!!
And it’s the LAST DAY of September, already! Which means it is the LAST DAY for Stampin’ Up!’s Gift with Purchase Promotion EXCEPT customers have outperformed even Stampin’ Up!’s most optimistic estimates, and Stampin’ Up! have RUN OUT of inventory of this special item.
So, because Stampin’ Up! are simply awesome, they have announced they are offering a replacement item for anyone who places a $100 order TODAY!! Any order placed before 11.50pm today will qualify for the ribbon bundle and will receive a spool of Chocolate Chip 1″ (2.5 cm) double-stitched grosgrain ribbon (item 111849; p. 150) and a spool of Rose Red 1″ (2.5 cm) double-stitched grosgrain ribbon (item 111846; p. 150).
