First of all, I may be making very short
blog posts for the next 2-3 weeks, because I'm trying to get all my ducks in a row before my Orlando trip, and I'm losing the battle. Not only am I trying to design cards and schedule blog posts in advance
(including Stamp Review Crew and My Inky Friends commitments), I also
need to make swaps for the Stampin' Up! OnStage event, PLUS roomie gifts
for my two room mates. Then I need to think about my Saturday Stampers
Club when I get back.
Oh, and did I mention I haven't started my
Christmas cards yet, and I've been commissioned to make two dozen
Christmas cards for a friend? *Sigh* It will all work out, I know
it will. And besides, I do my best work when deadlines are looming, even if it does stress me out.
On to today's card.....I really, really,
REALLY hope that Country Home is going to be one of the stamp sets that carries over when the Holiday catalog ends. It is such a sweet set, and I can't get enough of coloring it!
I used the Crushed Curry and Blackberry Bliss patterns in the Country Lane DSP as the background, and they look awesome
together! The greeting, pitcher, and dried arrangement were stamped with Early Espresso and colored with Light Crumb Cake, Light Soft Suede, and Mint Macaron Combo Stampin' Blends Makers.
And can you believe it....no Big Shot was involved in this card! I know, shocker!
