We Interrupt Our Regular Scheduled Posting to Bring You FALL

We're now into September and we're having the weather that we would normally have in October. It's been quite cool in Wisconsin, but thankfully it's been sunny and dry, at least for this year's Labor Day holiday weekend.

I was supremely lucky enough to be able to get a level 3 hostess set recently (thanks to Barb and Kate and Kate's friends who ordered stuff when I was hostess!), and have been wanting to make this card for a couple of weeks and finally got around to it.

This card is pretty straightforward. The card base is textured Melon Mambo. LOVE this color! In order to make sure that my design would fit on the card with all the matting, I cut the mats from the bottom up and then stamped the Whisper White after I had the panel cut. Rich Razzleberry is the bottom mat, next comes Dusty Durango topped by the Whisper White which is stamped in the mum flower stamp with Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry. The sentiment was stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink. Finished off with Crushed Curry polka dot ribbon. Wish they would do this with more of the SU! colors besides the In Colors.

Can't get much simpler than this . . . . . .

Recipe:
Stamp Set: Kind and Caring Thoughts (level 3 hostess)
Paper: Melon Mambo textured, Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, Whisper White card stock
Accessories: Crushed Curry polka dot ribbon

Dear Friends,

I was going to post a new card today, but for some reason the edit screen doesn't allow me to post a picture, so I guess it will have to wait. Not sure what's going on. So, I guess I'll go get ready to leave for the park where my hubby and I are planning to spend the day. It's a beautiful day here today, not too hot, lots of sun, should be a good day all around. I'll check back later today and see if I can post this card.

Life is a Beautiful Thing

Some days it just doesn't pay to try to be creative.  Today was one of those days.  I knew I had to make a card since I wanted to post s...
