We’ve had another busy week and I haven’t had a chance to spend much time in my craft room. My hubby is the coach of my great-nephew’s All-Star baseball team and they have played every night. I’ve also been working on some church projects- what can I say? – I LOVE being retired!!! And, as you might have noticed, I have changed the look on my blog and would love to know what you think of it. I am still fine tuning and would love your suggestions.
I’ve decided that SU!’s Parisian Breeze DSP is my all time favorite and it is being retired, so I have stocked up for the future and used a little slice of it on today’s challenge card. It’s a two-fer, sort of. Today’s Limited Supply Challenge was to use stamps with a different language in our design to give our cards an International Flair. Also, I thought Tuesday’s Color Challenge sounded interesting – Breezy Ruby Whispers- so I thought I would combine the challenges. My sweet DIL Jennifer is from Shanghai and I was glad to get to use a sentiment from an old SU! set called Kanji, along with the pretty retired set Brocade Basics. I heat embossed the brocade image with a new to me embossing powder from American Craft’s Zing collection which is very close to the Ruby Red color. I was so lucky to win an American Craft’s package in a Stampin’ Out Alzheimer’s drawing that included a set of embossing powders and two marvelous stamp sets. It is just too cool to support such a worthy cause and get free stuff too!
Have a wonderful Father’s Day weekend!
