Easy Events

The new set Easy Events covers all your basic card making situations.  It's cute and allows you to color in images if you want. 
 At this point in my life, I rarely need baby cards, but this image would work for boy, girl, or TBD.  The background paper on both of these cards is from the Eat Cake designer series package.

The new Lace Ribbon Border Punch (p. 211), adds an elegant touch to any creation, without adding weight.  One of my challenges is to figure out how to make interesting cards without needing extra postage. 

That's it for today.  Now I'm back to making pickles. I'm using a natural fermentation type, so I don't have to boil water -- yay!  If you care, I'm working from these two recipes with a little more seasoning thrown in

My Pennants for Not Posting

Sorry for the horrible pun after my long absence.  It's been a BUSY BUSY summer with multiple swim and water polo teams.  We traveled to California for water polo and Mexico for a swim meet.   But, this weekend, I finally got a chance to play with my new stamps, so you'll see some posts for the next few days at least. 

The stamp set for this card is Pennant Parade, which is a new one in the brand new Idea Book & Catalog.  The pennants were punched out with a pennant punch.  I love it when they make matching punches and stamp sets.  The designer paper is Eat Cake.
