CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Farewell to Sale-a-Bration

Time for a nice Saturday blog hop for Create with Connie and Mary!

This week our theme is Sale-a-Bration. You know, make a $50 Stampin’ Up purchase (before shipping and tax) choose a free item from a special selection of made-for-Sale-a-Bration only items.  So, this can mean any number of products to show you!

I chose three to show you in one card!

libbystamps, stampin up, Avant Garden, Inside the Lines DSP, 3/8 Metallic Ribbon

The card base has a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Inside the Lines DSP adhered to it. I layered it with a Avant Garden stamped panel, finishing it off with a piece of 3/8 Metallic Ribbon in silver.

I thought the black and white made for a dramatic, stunning card.

I did have a friend in mind when I chose this sentiment from the Avant Garden stamp set. She has lots of health issues, but takes each doctor visit, medical procedure or debilitating day with a load of humor! She keeps everyone in lots laughter as she is in grave pain!

A Big Thank You!

Still feeling like crud…..creating always makes me feel better.

I managed to create a simply stamped card for Create with Connie and Mary. Here is our new sketch for the week –

Nice, bold set of colors!

I decided to go all stamping on this card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Avant Garden, So Very Much, 2016-2017 In Color Envelope Paper, CCMC446, Sale-a-Bration 2017

I like it. It’s simply fun!

The finishing touch was this nifty little folded over piece of Envelope Paper and a baker’s twine tie.

Not too bad for not feeling too well. Better days are ahead…

I’d love to know what you about this card!

Avant Garden Wishes

Cleaning up after Christmas……ugh…….Ahhhhhh, but, now taking a break to play with some new craft stuff and some challenges!! Wahoo!!

I haven’t played with other challenges in quite a while. Two recently caught my eye.

One from TGIF Challenges

Some lovely colors to start the creativity!

And, the second one is the theme, from Seize the Birthday

…..because we always need birthday cards!!!!

I used the Sale-a-Bration set, Avant Garden (FREE with a $50 purchase) to create this –

It’s a lovely, softly colored birthday card!

Everything stamped use the set. Even the background on the stripes of color!

The flowers were fussy cut and popped up. I also popped up the focal panel. Just adds a little somethin somethin!

So. I love this! Can’t wait until just the right person comes along to send it to!

In the meantime, I’d love to hear just what you think about it!
