Time well spent...

Hi all my friends! I made a card to share with you today that is not holiday related. I was really getting tired of the holiday card hustle and was so ready to try a spring card.

I used my new set Time Well Spent from Stampin' Up! This is the set SU! sent ALL of us demonstrators for FREE. It is a Level 3 Hostess set that will be available in the new Spring Summer catalog. You can earn this set when you host a workshop with sales totalling $500 or more. With that you would also get to choose $60 worth of FREE merchandise from the same catalog or any mini catalogs that are current when you place your order. All other supplies are also Stampin' Up! The cardstock is Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal and Whisper White. I also used the Certainly Celery Prints Designer Series Paper. The ribbon is also Certainly Celery. I used Cameo Coral to color in the flowers on the "Friends" layer and stamp the small flowers on the background. I used Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery and Apricot Appeal Classic Stampin' Pads with the Aqua Painter to watercolor the large flower. The center flower is white and it's from the Pretties Kit. I used our Two Way Glue Pen to add glue to the petals then dipped them in the long retired Wet Lime Stampin' Glitter and added an Ice Circle Rhinestone Brad. I added glitter to the word Friends with the same glue and then added another retired glitter to that which was Vivid Pink. I stamped the flower and words with Staz On Jet Black ink and popped up the Friends saying with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I hope that you are ready for a little spring color as I am and I hope this card adds a little bit of brightness to your winter day! Now, don't get me wrong, I am still very much in the holiday mood just not for stamping. I absolutely LOVE Christmas and all it stands for. I am holding on to the wonderful sights and sounds, happy people and cherished family moments with both hands and my heart. I hope you can hold on to all of these things through the rest of the year as I will do my best to keep them with me also. Happiness and huge hugs to you all. Thank you so very much for continuing to come back to see me and if there's anything you ever need, please don't hesitate to ask! Lorraine
