card stock: Almost Amethyst (R), Certainly Celery and Pretty in pink
Watercolour crayons
Textured impressions square lattice (new)
Vanilla shimmer smooch (new)
Greeting from Watercolour Trio (new)
Set: Bloomin Beautiful....... I love this set, I hope it doesn't retire this June.
Scallop oval and large oval punches.

I sprayed the celery piece after I ran it through the big shot. It has a subtle shimmer. I can't wait to have more time to play. I have been pretty sick this week and just trying to hold my head up has been an effort. Hopefully I will be well soon.

As we say Hello to our new and fabulous colour collections...... we must also say good bye to some old tried and true favorites. I think I will miss blush blossom most of all. But I can't wait to get my hands on some of the new colours. I love the excitement as we build up to the new in colour collection. That's a total of 10 new colours. Yummy!

That being said, now is the time to get those retiring colours before they are gone for good...... once inventory is gone, it's likely that their will be no second chance.
So call me or shop online

This card is a nice simple card that can be done in a flash. I started with a base of Sahara sand (I love this colour) I stamped the medallion in Sahara sand as well. I then stamped again on a scrap of SS and punched it our with the 1 3/4 circle punch. I love the crystal brads, so I popped one into the middle of the flower. I used chocolate chip textured card stock and some beautiful 5/8 satin ribbon. I also used the scallop border punch. (It will be available again in July)
I love to do quick and easy cards. I don't seem to have a ton of time these days. I also am in between spaces at the moment. I just want to get settled so I can be creative.

After buying all those fun My Digital Studio downloads, I had to spend some time playing with them. I love the new alphabet and the punches are so much fun too!
But I think my favorites are the new vintage overlays. So much fun to work with.
The more I use My Digital Studio (MDS) the more I absolutely love it. Absolutely a must have tool.
I will be uploading again today, I want to show a couple of samples using a few colours from our upcoming Colour Renovation. I cannot wait to be able to get my hands on these new colours. June is going to be an exciting month. :)
