Love Me Some Gingham ...

I have recently allowed myself to go back through some of my retired stuff and use it (you've heard me talk about this on here before). Like, just because it is RETIRED it is no longer USABLE? It doesn't exist? Really??? What universe are we living in, anyway! Sheesh!!! I have two HUGE Rubbermaid-type containers FULL of luscious old cardstock (and I KNOW it is ALL lucscious, 'cause I have impeccable taste!).

Soooo ... I have recently re-discovered SU's Sweet Slumber DSP. I am SOOOOO in love with the gingham-patterned stuff!! L-O-V-E it!!! That, coupled with the new Fabulous Florets stamp set (which I also love!) and the retired but oh-so-wonderful Well Scripted stamp set (how the heck that thing didn't make it into the big catty is anyone's guess!) makes this card a mishmash of old and new ... I got some REALLY old, some not-quite-as-old and some really new stuff going on with this-here card ... and it makes me happy anyway you slice it. Smiley from was also for CC323 on SCS - Rich Razzleberry, Regal Rose and Very Vanilla.)

Now, if I could just scare the snow away again (yes, it DID snow just a little bit up the street from my house today... didn't stick long, but it is freakin' the MIDDLE of MAY for crying out loud!!)!! Smiley from

I love your color combination and the card for that matter. Once again the ball has been hit out of the ball park. Way to go!

Wow, Wendy! This is so beautiful! I love the patterns and the colors are gorgeous! The flowers look so beautiful.

Come down to Florida for a while...I'd love to make cards with you...and you can get some sun! We have the air on every day! It has been in the 90's since February or so! My family moved to Florida when I was a jr. in high school because of a blizzard in April! Or was it June? We moved from CT to FL that fall! lol
When are you moving down? LOL

Gorgeous card, Sweetie!

He IS Able!
