Another for Joanne!


My second to honor Joanne {jojot}, the SCS Featured Stamper this week!!

Joanne has so many incredible cards in her gallery, and I loved THIS ONE.

She said it was one of her old sets, and it's brand new for me! In fact, I cut out and mounted my Blossoms Abound (SU!) today just to make this card! I bought it when it retired, knowing I would love it and I do!

I changed colors and punch, added pearls and a sentiment. I used designer paper instead of a Cuttlebug EF.

Note to self: Don't EVER put the whole card together and then decide you need a sentiment -- it's too scary! (I could have totally messed it all up - but this time it worked!). This is a standard A2 card.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday! My daughter is auditioning today for a part in her high school musical. They are doing "Les Miserables" - my most favorite Broadway show ever. We won't know what part she got until Friday afternoon, so it's going to be a looooooong week!
Have a good one!

Hope your daughter gets a good part. I'd love to see the show sometime, I've only read the book.

When I lived in NYC, my rooomie went and saw Les Misarables 5 times (gotta love student discounts). I never did get to see it--the problem of working in theatre--you never get to see other people's shows. I hope it went well for Laura!!

Such a pretty card--I love the colors--and the elegant embellishments!
VERY Joanne and Very Judy!!

This is absolutely GORGEOUS! Now I think I'll be casing YOU, because I have this paper and I love this card. I too bought this set when it retired. Just a beautiful card. Love the paper/color choice and layout.
