Favourite Thoughts

One of my favourite stamp sets from the Summer Mini is Favourite Thoughts. My absolute FAVOURITE is "There is nothing wrong with the world that a sensible woman could not settle in an afternoon". How perfect is that? And how true!

OK, so a couple weeks ago, my upline and BFF was sorting through her retired product in preparation for our big event in a couple of weeks and she found some In Colour product from previous years. I just about tackled her asked her nicely if I could have it and because she loves me so much and knows how much I LOVE Soft Sky and Blue Bayou she obliged. Isn't she AWESOME?

So, with some of my new/old stash I made this:

I used Blue Bayou for my card and Soft Sky for accent pieces. The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White and I used my Ticket Corner Punch on both the Whisper White and Blue Bayou before adhering it to the Soft Sky and adding brads.

While I had the set out, I made these two cards too:


This paper is retired too, but at least it's more recent than the previous card - LOL!

These cards use Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper and Taken with Teal cardstock as the base. I also used some Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery Cardstock.

What do you think?

INK: Not Quite Navy, Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie (for sponging)
