Mosaic Birthday for DD100 and TSOT165

I'm a little sad as I write this post.  One of my favourite challenge blogs, The Dynamic Duos, is saying farewell after this challenge : (  While I didn't always enter each week I certainly was looking and taking inspiration from the colour combinations posted.  I wish Anne Marie and Lesley as well as the rest of the design team all the best as they pursue new opportunities.

Here are this week's colours:

Another challenge blog that I love is Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  Again, I don't always enter but I've always got one eye on their sketch for the week.  Here is this week's sketch:

I love the colour combination and this sketch is just so versatile!  It's been a while since I used my scallop-edge punch so I was glad to get it out again for this card.

Pretty, eh?  We have a lot of birthdays in May and June in my family so I'm stocking up on my stash of birthday cards to send out.  

I'm sad to see the "Simply Sketched" hostess set go and I'm pretty sure that it'll be one of those sets that I hold on to even after it's retired.

Here's what you'll need to make this card:

Stamp Sets:  Mosaic Madness, Flower Shop, Simply Sketched (Hostess me to host your own party)

Paper and Ink:  Smoky Slate, Pool Party, So Saffron, Whisper White

Other:  Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack (scallop circle), 3/16" corner rounder punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Basic Rhinestone Jewels, bone folder (to curl edges of the flowers), Mosaic TIEF.

Happy Stamping!

Project Life by Stampin' Up!

I don't know about you but I just can't get it together with scrapbooking!  Card-making, yes!  I can make a project in a few minutes and then move on.  Scrapbooking just isn't my thing.  I tried when my son was born...I've got 6 beautiful pages of the first 2 weeks of his life.....he'll be 5 in a month!  I just don't have the organizational skills or time to be able to the medium justice!

So when Stampin' Up announced today that it is partnering with "Project Life" to launch a new, simplified way to document memories I was intrigued.  I didn't know anything about Project Life or what it was about but as I listened to Becky Higgins describe it I knew this was for me!  I can't wait to get my own package : )

For those familiar with Project Life this is AUTHENTIC PROJECT LIFE PRODUCT, NOW IN EXCLUSIVE STAMPIN' UP! COLOURS AND DESIGN!!!!  Woohoo!!!!

Check it out!

I'm so excited!!!!  As a demonstrator I can order this on April 21st.....if you want to become a demonstrator contact me today and I'll guide you through the process.  Otherwise, you can order this beginning May 1st!

Happy Stamping!
