Playing Catch Up!

Hi everyone! I had another sleepy weekend, and I chose sleep instead of blogging, so I'm here to play catch up and fill you all in on what's going on in my world.

First, here's a card I made at my downline's house several days ago. I wanted to try out her Priceless set, and I love it! My dilema now is which set do I like better, Garden Whimsy, or Priceless? Ahh, decisions, decisions.

I also wanted to try out the new Basic Grey cardstock by Stampin' Up!. I thought it would be nice, and I really didn't think it was a must-have color, but now, Basic Grey is officially a Southern Style Stamping Must Have! I love it simply because black can be too dark on a card sentiment sometimes. Basic Grey is just right!

On this card, I started with a Wild Wasabi card base, and a strip of Almost Amethyst DP with a Basic Grey mat. I stamped the butterfly and flourish from Pricelss in Basic Grey, Almost Amethyst, and a bit of black marker for the antenna and butterfly body. I punched out a Wasabi tab with the SU round tab punch and stamped the sentiment from All Holidays in Basic Grey. I finished off the card with a bit of ticket corner punching, and a bit of Wasabi stitched ribbon and made myself stop embellishing before I ruined the card.

Next on today's agenda is to say a big THANK YOU to the awesome bloggers who nominated me for Rockin' blogger!
