LAST DAY for an Awesome Hambo Sale!

Over at Hambo Stamps you can get 25% off this cool Sailboat Frame - 3220 -- and everything else! TODAY IS THE LAST DAY!  Here are the SAIL/SALE deets:

Our last big sale of the season runs Thursday, April 26 thru Saturday, April 28. Save 25% off all in-stock stamps using code "SCS25" with your order. The additional discount will be applied to sale prices on our "Retiring" and "Seconds" stamps. Free shipping, however, does NOT apply to discounted orders.

 Don't miss out!!

My card today was made using scraps (except for the card base) in my paper scrap files. I file all my scraps larger than 2"x2" in folders according to "main" colors. I used to do exact colors, but then the colors changed so much from the original Stampin' Up! ones, and I have bought so many other brands now that I don't have room to do it that way! 

Click on the photo for a close-up! The circle was already cut, but I never used it, and I just added texture with a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the Yoyo Yellow piece. I stamped my Sailboat Frame with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.

So for the rest of the day I am out & about -- getting ready for tomorrow's university department picnic here. Yesterday we had a long, steady, hard rain -- the most I have seen in a very long time, and everything is so green. I just want a sunny day for tomorrow!

Have a wonderful weekend! Tomorrow I will be back with a Featured Stamper creation and another recipe!
