It's time for the Wednesday Stamping Queens Sketch Challenge #43! This week we had a great sketch to work with. There are a lot of options for this sketch - make a pocket card, tuck a tag in .... etc.
I have been working hard for a few days getting all my downloads on My Digital Studio up to date. I printed out a list of ALL the downloads to date and have been highlighting the downloads that I have purchased. Yesterday I went through the list and highlighted a bunch of downloads that I want to get in the future. I ended up buying about $40 worth of new downloads yesterday so I just had to use one of them. The flowers in the card below are from Tuesday's newest downloads. You can see the newest downloads HERE. Every Tuesday Stampin' Up releases new downloads. You can view them all by clicking on the Digital tab above (in my blog title).
I just love these flowers - called Bright Blooms. They are pretty large and I just resized them (and copied and pasted them) onto the green scallop circle.
Items I used for the MDS card are:
Cardstock: So Saffron, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade DSP, Flirtatious (yellow strip)
Punches: Scallop Punch (filled with green); Scallop Trim Punch
Accessories: Bright Blooms, Pearls
Stamp: Best of Everything
I received some new SU goodies yesterday but I haven't had time to play with them. We went out to dinner with friends last night. We went to an Italian restaurant in Cornelius and had a yummy meal although I have enough Baked Ziti to serve a couple more nights! Why do they give you so much? Just lower the price and give me a normal amount of food! When we got to the restaurant, Sonny & I noticed a new bar in the same area called Paddy's Pour House. It had shamrocks on the sign so we assumed it was an Irish bar. After dinner, we convinced our friends to go with us to check it out. Well .... it will not make our Top Ten list! I am sure we stuck out like a sore thumb - everyone in there was probably in their 20s, it was very loud, and didn't even have any of our Irish beverages on tap. Too bad but we have seen a sign for a new Irish bar that will be opening in Mooresville soon and we are waiting to check it out.
I am going to be a travel agent on the side! Our friends that we had dinner with are waiting for their passports to arrive. They want to take a trip to Seattle and the Vancouver area and wanted our input. They convinced me to plan it for them since we know about the area. I don't know much about Vancouver but I suggested they spend a few days in Seattle, take the ferry to the San Juan Islands and stay at a bed and breakfast on one of the islands (something I wish we had done when we lived there) and then get on the ferry and head on over to Victoria. Victoria was our favorite Canadian destination when we lived in Washington. It is such a quaint little town.
