A Blast from the Past

For those of us that have been using Stampin' Up for years, here's an oldie but goodie. Look close...what ink color do you think I used with Rose Red on this card? Did you guess Marigold Morning...well, that's what it is! I was so sad as I used it. I think it's drying out and I didn't get a refill. Lesson learned ;) I also played with So Saffron on this design, so that would work great too.

I had this card idea stashed in one of my To-Do files. It's inspired by this card by Amy Wanford. Sometimes it's nice to sit down and make a card and not really have to think about it. I loved the color combo and knew it would be great with this print from Fifth Avenue Floral.

I am still working on getting Thank You's out to my PTO Board and Chairs from this past school year and I think this saying says it all, "The greatest gift is a portion of thyself." This is from the Of the Earth Hostess Set from the current catalog and one of the last sets I got. I am so very glad I did. I've already used it more than any of the others that I earned...and it will be popping up on my card for tomorrow's post. You'll have to stop by and check it out.

Have a great day!
