Well, Wednesday already, that’s pretty nice! I think every Monday should be a holiday! How are things by you? Things here are good, it rained all afternoon today but we are moving along to a heat wave for the rest of the week. We are supposed to get up into the 90’s by Friday. Once again no real buffer between the seasons. It felt like October here on Saturday and a week later we are in Florida!
Today’s post – Paper Craft Crew Design Team Sketch #44…
A cute little sketch that at first I thought a window would be a good way to go but that was too obvious. The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock. The background is a piece of Raspberry Ripple that I stamped with the Woodgrain Background Stamp in Raspberry Ripple. The next layer is some Soft Suede that is embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with some Very Vanilla. All of the images that are punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch are from the new Postage Collection Host(ess) Stamp Set* (can you tell it’s one of my favorites?!). Across the bottom is some paper from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack with some Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and fits with the theme of Father’s Day for this week’s sketch. I really am quite fond of the Postage Collection Set* and I’m loving the colors! Thank you for stopping by to see my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch. I hope you’ll take some time to check out what the other designers have for you over at the blog and upload a card of your own so wee can take a peek. Enjoy your Wednesday everyone! 🙂

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!
Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset!

They work amazingly with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads for great ink coverage. You are going to love them! This is a limited release so make sure you get one before it’s gone!
