Just A Note



What's your most under-loved Stampin' Up set? The one you just had to have, but have barely used? For me, it has to be Frames With A Flourish. Here I've paired one of the frames with two stamps from Verve's Asian Flair to make the "Just a Note" label. The yellow diamond panel is stamped in VersaMark ink with the flourish from Baroque Motifs, then embossed in white. The color combo comes from this week's SCS Color Challenge. All the white dotting is done with a white gel pen.

Just a quick note -- I'm leaving Saturday morning for a family vacation. I've got a few things scheduled to post automatically while I'm away, but if I'm a little scarce next week, you'll know why. We're headed to North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with my parents, my brother and his family, and my sister and her boyfriend. Should be lots of fun! Anyone know of any stamp/scrap stores in that area, or even along the Virginia/North Carolina I-95 corridor? I'm sure my family will be thrilled to go stamp shopping with me ;)

See you again on Saturday with a fun NEW Our Creative Corner challenge and a VERY cool Sketch for You To Try from Jen!

Aren't you just the most clever thing ever, Pickler? It's a good thing I have such a generous heart, because otherwise I might have to not like you because every single thing you create makes me slap my forehead and say "Why can't I think of stuff like that?!?!" You da bomb!

Hope this isn't a double post! I just LOVE this card. The textures are great - the embossing and the CS itself. I love the paper piercing and all of the little dots and that flower is perfect. I love it!
