Big Bloom Bye Bye!!


Well, my new catalogue is FULL of post it notes!! I was able to sit down with it yesterday before work and go through all the new stamp sets and there are some beauties!! All the new designers papers are just so gorgeous and the new RIBBON??!! Agh!! Need I say more?? My first orders will be including some of ALL of those items!!

But, alas, this awesome set, Big Blooms, did not make it into the catalogue, so I am featuring it today as a send off!!! Heehee! This card was one I taught at my last Stamp Camp and it is also one of my favourite colour combinations. I love the fact that the images are so big and you can cut them out very easily for layering.

The card base is Chocolate Chip and of course, Pretty in Pink! I started by stamping the big blossom in PIP and cutting it out. I stamped the stem in Certainly Celery and then the verse from Curvy Verses in Chocolate Chip over top. I curled the petals up a bit to add some dimension and then I used my liquid glue and put a little dot on each of the little dots in the middle of flower. Then I took some clear glass beads that I got from the dollar store and placed one on each of the dots! The bottom scalloped strip is done using the corner rounder and taking the guard off. The ladies really enjoyed this particular card and I did too!



I thought I would also share with you so photos of our trip to Stratford the other night. It's a tradition with us, going to see a play at the Stratford Festival. Since I was a teenager I have seen some amazing plays and musicals there and I have such a love for the theatre. I love to WATCH it, I would never want to be IN it!! Haha!! I've seen many Shakespearean plays including The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew and also some wonderful musicals like The Pirates of Penzance, Hello Dolly and now, Oklahoma!



We met my parents in Stratford and we always take a bunch of pictures down by the river. There are so many swans, Canadian geese and ducks. This year was no different, with many mommies and daddies swimming around with their little babies. But MY little baby was the prettiest of all!! MAN!! She's not much of a baby anymore.....but I will ALWAYS call her that!!

The first time I looked at the picture I thought the girls in it were close to the same age -- then I realized it was you and your daughter. She's beautiful, but it's obvious where she gets her good looks -- you look gorgeous in that photo. No wonder Pattyjo thought you had 2 girls!
