Sweets for the Sweet

Sorry for not posting a few days!  We are in final countdown for the wedding, so I'm BUSY, BUSY!  My oldest son and his wife come in on Thursday night, so need to find some time to clean up around here, too!  Today I hope to finish making the place cards.  Thursday we hope to fill the candy boxes, fold the programs and alphabetize the place cards!  All those last minute details!  My plans are to start revealing the wedding items I made next week on my blog!



It's a new month and Stampin' Up! has a SUPER special going on!  Buy 3 packages of Designer Paper and get 1 Free.  Specialty Paper and Hostess Exclusive Paper are excluded.  What an AWESOME deal!  I know I plan on stocking up!


Here is a card that I swapped with a fun group at Convention!  If it looks familiar, it IS similar to one I made for Create with Connie and Mary's challenge HERE a few weeks ago…the layout and colors are slightly different.  Funny how just changing a few things makes it look totally different, huh?


I started with a base of Wild Wasabi and layered on Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the FInial Press Impressions Folder.  I added the stripe from Just Add Cake Designer Paper…this could be one of your selections for the special this month!  I added the ruffled strip of Chocolate Chip Polka Dot Ribbon across the bottom (I LOVE that ribbon…so easy to handle!)  I stamped the pinwheels in Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and WIld Wasabi and cut them out, placing a Gold Mini Brad in the center and popping them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I stamped Just for Fun in Chocolate Chip on Wild Wasabi and punched it with the Pennant Builders Punch.  Love it!


OK…don't forget I have RIBBON SHARES going on, too!  Several shares only need 1 or 2 more people to join and I'll be ordering!
