September 21, 2013

It is pouring rain in the North Georgia mountains.  The PERFECT day to work on crafts.  The best part if I am on a Scrapin' and Stampin' Retreat with my girlfriends!  It is always so exciting to bounce ideas off such creative  woman.  I am truly amazed at their talents! 

I have made a lot of Fall cards and decided to take a break and create a card for the Create With Connie and Mary challenge.  I used one of my favorite stamp sets, "Regarding Dahlias."  It is a stamp that always makes me smile.  I love it!
Stampin' Up Products:

Paper:  Whisper White, Island Indigo, Quatrefancy Specialty

Ink:  Island Indigo

Stamp Sets:  Regarding Dahlias, Banner Greetings

Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Snail Adhesive, Big Shot Cutting Machine,  Argyle Embossing Folder,
Corner Rounder, Snips

Embellishments:  Pearls, Glossy Accents

The joke of the day is how I always end up with a 6 x 6 work space on the table.  I clean it up and regroup every 30 minutes and then it is back to this in a few minutes.

Some things NEVER change!

Stay tuned for more create items!
