Reminisce sent me.......

Hi Everyone,

About a week or so ago I participated in a blog hop over at Reminisce. They were giving away some new papers and to one lucky winner a collection of all the new lines. Well, I was lucky to win paper from the new line of my choice. The Celtic collection was so appealing to me, so I chose that one. The postman delivered my prize today and I wanted to share this amazing paper with you. The papers are soooo nice. I included two pic's for you. I received die cut stickers (sentiments and borders), 12X12 papers and glittered shamrock embellishments. What a great sampling of this line. I can't wait to use papers from this wonderful line. The papers are double sided and can be used for lots of different designs, not just St. Patty's Day.

I will be using the sentiment stickers and the shamrocks on my St. Patty's Day cards next year, for sure.

Here is a card that I designed today using ippity kit # IPK-117. It was snowing a little, earlier today, so I thought the yellow flowers would chase the cold and snow away.

I stamped the flowers onto watercolor paper with Marvy #43 Brilliant Yellow and used a waterbrush to soften the stamped image. Stamped the swirl with in Giovanni's Garden by Fresco. This is a permanent ink so I painted the swirl using Marvy #96 Jungle Green and softened that somewhat. Punched some small butterflies and added some bling and ribbon.

AND ON A SAD NOTE...............

In Memory

I'm sad to report that a friend to many at a lot of stamp conventions, Norm Weed (husband of Polly of Polly's Pals) died Sunday, March 27. He was stricken last Thursday on the way to Heirloom's show in Portland and wasn't able to recover. Polly is requesting no calls or e-mails at this time, but you are welcome to send cards to her at 40995 Prominade Chardonnay Hills, Temecula, CA 92591
I copied this info from Marco's site, just in case you weren't aware of this sad information.
Well that is it for today,thanks for stopping by,

Congratulations, Barbara! That Ippity set is WONDERFUL! Such a pretty, attractive flourishy stem & leaf (I need one of those LOL) and really like the flower a lot - such a lot of texture in the flower! It's always fun seeing what you've been up to.
