Hello Fellow Stampers --
Happy Weekend! Sorry we're coming to you late. It's been kind of a crazy end of the week for me; flying right into what has been an extremely busy weekend. Thursday evening was HOA Board Meeting night; one that went long. By the time I got home, I was exhausted. So no Mojo Monday card design completed. And I've been running solid ever since. Although it was an off-Friday, I had to run to work early, then had a telephone conference while driving to a doctor's appointment; followed by running to the chiropractor. At which time I promptly locked my keys in the car!! Don't ask. Until that was resolved, I was late to another HOA meeting; and then it was dinner, grocery shopping, errands -- sheesh! I don't even want to talk about today's frantic schedule. At least I got to end the day with some of my favorite stampers playing with the Birthday Bright Kit and just relaxing and having a nice time together. I greatly enjoyed it!!
So we're back to catch-up time! It's Mojo Monday [MOJO489] challenge time ! Cute sketch, don't you think? I've gone back and forth about what stamp set, and theme I wanted to use with this sketch. I finally settled on a set that has been calling my name and just waiting for me to break it out and play -- so let's go have some fun :-)
Doggone Delightful Stampin' Design Tips:
- Layerothology. This card base is cut from Thick Whisper White cardstock, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4". The background of this card uses the Succulent Garden DSP, matted with Tip Top Taupe (one of my favorite, soon to retire, In Colors). I really love this paper collection -- have you checked it out? Don't forget that as we close out Sale-A-Bration, you can grab this paper collection FREE with a qualifying $50 order!!
- A Basket Bunch of Daffodils. Have you checked out the Basket Bunch Bundle yet?? OMG!! Did you know pretty much ever image in the stamp set has a coordinated die to it? Ohhh, be still my soul!! I adore this sweet little spring set -- perfect for Easter, spring, and all things sweet! And this little basket of sweet flowers is perfect as a thank you. Surrounded by Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper from the SAB Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack, this card just sparkle with soft color!
I downsized the banner shapes from the sketch, letting the 3/8" Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon carry the day; overlaid with a simple little sentiment punched with the Classic Label Punch.
I really love how this card came together; and my ladies got to watch me play while they were crafting right along side me :-)
- Turn to the Inside. I finished off the inside of this card with Mint Macaron, and a simple sentiment to round out the front! Sometimes simple has the biggest punch!
Now, it's time for the most important item of the day!! I know you're all chomping at the bit so to speak -- LOL. It's time for my Blog Candy giveaway - a collection of cards/projects from my collection.
Drum roll please!!! . . . .

What did these gals have to say about our wonderful SAB this year?
Debbie said: "My favorite Saleabration item had to be Avant Garden stamp set. It's such a veritile stamp set . And you have to love the Glitter Paper too !"
Karen L. said: "My favorite Sale-a-bration item this year was "Hey, Chick". I have a person that I buy farm fresh eggs from & it was just perfect for a card(s) for her. Plus, the glimmer paper was very popular........as being "sold out" testifies to that! Thanks for the tutorials that you do........kinda getting into watercoloring!"
Su W. said: "Thanks for your tips-----I like the avant garden and Hey Chick sale-a-bration items. I don't like that they keep adding new things!!"
Jacque M. said: "I like the simplicity of the So Very Much stamp. I also like the Tasty Trucks set and want to make taco Tuesday cards. The Hey Chick is a hoot too...OK, I love them all..."
Trish M. said: ". . . You asked what is my favorite Sale-A-Bration item would be? That is a very difficult decision!!! I have made more cards using Avant Garden so I would choose this set, however, Hey Chick, Delicate Details and Glimmer paper have been my favorites as well."
Don't forget that we're winding down Sale-A-Bration 2017; don't wait to get those orders in and pick up your Free SAB products!!
