Farewell True Friend

One of my favorite sets that's retiring on June 30th is True Friend.  I like that it can be feminine or masculine. See what I mean?

 The bottom card also uses the Woodgrain background stamp. Fortunately that one isn't retiring because I've barely touched mine.  I also used the smooch spray in Log Cabin on it.

If you like this set, order it soon. Call or email me and I can place your order, or go online and order it. Designate me as your demonstrator to get the "preferred pricing,"

Tropical Moonrise

I'm not sure if this is a sunset or moonrise, but either way, I'd rather be there than sitting here in the cold and rain -- gotta love June in Seattle. 

 This card was inspired by Regina's card.  As she pointed out, one of the bonuses of the clear mounted stamps is that you can bend them a little bit. Notice how the palm tree is bent to the left? I'm so pumped about that idea and will play with my other stamps and see what I can do.  This card uses Tropical Party from the summer mini catalog.  Colors are Basic Gray, Razzleberry, Crumb Cake (currently known as kraft, but getting a new identity in July -- something about a witness protection program, I think), Bashful Blue, Pacific Pointe, and Not Quite Navy.
