SUOC62 - New Toys!

Sorry for the week-long delay for the new SUO Challenge; Robin was very ill, but is feeling a bit better, so we're off and running again. We are going back on our regular two week schedule as of today. And what a great way to start anew, with new toys from the Spring Catalog (and Sale-A-Bration, too)!

The roses are in the Artisan Embellishments Kit, along with all kinds of tasty morsels for dressing up a card. I swear I nearly swooned when I saw them in the catalog, and then again when I actually had them in my hands. Well, maybe not swooned exactly....more like hyperventilated. It's true! Would I lie to you?

The Very Vanilla lace and Primrose Petals seam binding ribbon are in the kit, too, as well as the button (that is practically hidden by the bow - poor planning on my part). Love the new Oval Framelits, too. So many fun ways to use them!

Stamps: Bloomin' Marvelous (leaves, greeting - SAB item), French Foliage (spatters)
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Primrose Petals
Ink: Crumb Cake, VersaMark
Accessories: Big Shot, Oval Framelits, Fancy Fan and Perfect Polka-Dots folders, Designer Frames folder, Artisan Embellishments Kit, Vintage Trinkets

And now, if you've scrolled all the way down here, I'll tell you why I used the spatters from French Foliage on the card. I was eating pizza at my craft table, you see, and a sausage decided to hop off the pizza right onto my just-finished card. Once again, instead of a shining example, I am a horrible warning! Let that be a lesson to ya!


  1. Oh, you are a shining example of making lemonade out of a pesky lemon (or sausage)! This is gorgeous, Cindy. I, too, am in LOVE with the Artisan Embellishments!

  2. Bahahahaha! That completely cracks me up! I cannot believe CINDY would EVER eat anything at her craft table, let alone sausage pizza!! What is this world coming to?!

    Either way, this card is absolutely STUNNING!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
