Cherries Jubilee!  Another throwback and unfortunately yes these stamp sets are also retired.  You can really use anything with layout.  Just another idea!  Enjoy your Monday!

It’s Friday again and that means it time for our color challenge with the Blooms and Butterflies Team.  Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride!  for more ideas, please visit our teams’ submissions at

Our dear friend is undergoing heart surgery this week and I needed to create a card to send her.  I created a tag out of scrap and tied it to the vintage faceted button using the Early Espresso bakers twine. The Day Dream Medallions Stamp and corresponding dies, Floral Frames Collection, make it easy to cute them out and layer, propped up with Stampin’ dimensionals.

Stamp on Monday – Throwbacks

monday flower thank you

I wanted to show you some designs from this past year which some of the accessories or stamps  will be retired however you can still use the same layout a replace the stamps to make your card.  the Next 3 Mondays will be throwback days!

This cute little Thank You is a 3X6 card with the coordinations cardstock in pool party, DSP and buttons, still in the current catalog.  the stamp is retired.  I used this for the end of year card with a gift card it in for the bus drivers.

Blooms and Butterflies Color Challenge

I cant believe it’s Friday already,  and its color Challenge Day!  Marina Mist, Soft Suede and Rose Red are today’s colors.  Whew………this was a challenge.  For those that don’t know me, Cake Boss is a fan fav in our house and boys love it too!  My middle boy is allergic to milk so we have this little hope that if he does grow out of it we have promised him a cake from Buddy.  I’m so glad the bakery is only an hour away.  So this card is sort a tribute to tiered cakes I guess.  My oldest told me to make a cakelike card for this weeks challenge because he knew I was struggling with putting the colors together.  I hope you like it and inspired you to try something even if you may not have the greatest solution but when you’re done it’s a gem.  For more inspiration, please visit
