I had a fun weekend crafting. My friend and I went to a local hotel with about 25 other people and crafted all weekend long. With the Color Refresh and new In-Colors coming, I had to make more of my color swatches. Glad to get them almost done. I also worked on my Italy scrapbook some more. Maybe some year I'll get that one done.
We made this birthday card in club this month. It's a pretty simple card which is nice. We had other cards that required more time than this one did.
It was also a way to say good-bye to Blessings of Home stamp set, So Saffron and Bermuda Bay. It will be sad to see all three leave us. I was especially surprised to see So Saffron on the Retirement List. SU! does know how to surprise us.
I used the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. They are only available online, so don't worry if you don't see them in the new catty. There is no date as to when these online exclusive will come to an end. I am so glad to have purchased them. So many times I need a neutral, subtle texture and these are perfect. Take a peek at them.
It's very hard to see, but I colored the largest flower with the Wink of Stella. And because there are flowers, I couldn't resist these bumblebee trinkets. Plus, they make me smile.
