For You

Last night I made some cards with the Making Memories Greenhouse Paperie papers that I recently bought. Usually I am not into green, but I really like this Paperie line as well as the blue, pink and brown collection of this serie. This card is based on card*a*licious~9 challenge over at the card*a*licious blog. It is the first time I play along, but I'll definitely plan to play more often. The base of this card is a ShortCuts frosted card blank. I really love working with these cards.





Supplies: SheetLoad ShortCuts Frosted Card Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper, ribbon: Making Memories Greenhouse Paperie Tools: Sizzix BigShot, Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Ovals Small, Marvy Uchida Scalloped Oval punch Letter stickers: Prima Marketing Whispered Words Flock Alphabets Ink: VersaColor Pinecone #171

Don't forget about my blog candy. You can win a ShortCuts Ultimate Sampler to try the cards yourself. O, and my sweet friend Hanneke is featured on the ShortCuts blog today. Her gorgeous DT card for this week's sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You was picked up by Alicia from ShortCuts.

Petra, owner of Dolls & Decorations (the store I design for) announced today that her scrapbook store will be closed as of March 1st. I know this wasn't an easy decision for her, but sometimes you have to do what is best for you and that is what she did by taking this tough decision.

Gorgeous card, Ingrid! SO glad you got a chance to play along with the cardalicious challenge this week. I always enjoy those.
Sorry to hear about your lss closing. I used to manage ours until we went out of business last November. It was a very hard decision, process, and aftermath. I hate that so many small stores are going out of business.
