I only had time to make one card today. I had a pretty busy day. I met a group for lunch at a new restaurant in town and had a nice lunch and visit with my friends. Then it was off to pick up everything I need for my big Southern Living Luncheon at my house on Thursday. I am having 14 ladies for lunch. Thankfully, I don't have to prepare the food - only the beverages. Everyone brings a dish from a recent Southern Living Magazine and we critique the dishes. It's a great way to taste some things you wouldn't ordinarily make for your family. I am making Strawberry Margaritas and Sweet Tea Lemonade from the May issue. I needed a new pitcher and went all over town looking for one today - Ross, TJ Max, Target, Pier One, World Market, Bed, Bath and Beyond! I finally found one I liked at Bed and Bath but by that time I was sooo hot and exhausted. The thermometer in my car was registering 100 degrees! Then I had to make a stop at the grocery store and the liquor store. Whew!! Now tomorrow I have to dust and mop - yuck!! (My least favorite thing to do.)
But I did take a little time out this evening to make a card with the retiring set, Party Hearty. Pennants are going to be a big thing this fall. Stampin' Up has a pennant die and punch in the new catalog! So I decided to make a pennant using the hats in the stamp set. I thought they turned out cute. I used all In Colors too!
