Festive Flurry - FMS97

Another Christmas in July Sketch Challenge card for you!  This sketch comes from Freshly Made Sketches.   I think that the Festive Flurry Stamp set and Framelits may be my favorite bundle in the Holiday Catalog.   I can't forget about the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper too!  Who doesn't like having a Framelit that coordinates with a stamp set AND Designer Paper?!?!?  Just another reason why I LOVE Stampin Up! and their products. 

I am SO excited to see the Gold and Silver Encore Pads back in our product line!! :)    The NEW Frosted Finishes Embellishments finish this card perfectly!  Enjoy!

Flower Shop Thank You! FTL245

FINALLY A CARD TO SHARE!!   :)    Sorry I have been "away" for a while, but was busy getting my All Occasions Stamp-a-Stack prepped and keeping the kids "happy" during their Summer Break.    Here is a card I planned on submitting for the Sketch Challenge presented by Clean and Simple Stamping, but unfortunately I missed the submission date. 

This is one of my swaps for the Stampin Up! Convention this month (SUPER EXCITED)!!!   My stamping ladies saw me working on them over the weekend so it is ALSO one of my July class samples!!  :)     I LOVE the banners they are so HOT right now.  I used our new Hexagon Punch (#130919) to make the banners.   I wanted to ensure that they were all uniform and the same and this punch is PERFECT!!
