Finally Friday!

Good Morning Stampers!  It is finally Friday and I know a lot of you have been looking forward to this day.  For some of you, school is over, your students are gone, and you'll soon be in "summer mode."  And the weather is looking good too... how nice is that?!?

I have a sunny card for you today to go with our sunny day.  It shows off one of the new hostess sets from the new annual catalog.  This fun set, called Four Seasons, can be found on page 203 and features 4 seasonal birds inside 4 different seasonal wreaths.  It coordinates with many of our punches and that makes it easy to create some cute cards in very little time.  Of course you can get this set FREE when you host a party, so what are you waiting for?  I need parties on my calendar and you need new stamps to play with, so let's work together and we'll both be happy. 

Here's the card...

We made this cute card last night at my Wednesday Wow event.  We had such a good time stamping and eating chocolate together.  Hope you can join me for my next event.  Be watching your inbox for an evite.   The card starts out with a card base of Tangerine Tango, cut into the usual 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inch rectangle.  The card that opens is a 4 by 4 inch square.  The front of the card is embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder and then the cicrle is cut out. 

Here's a list of the supplies used:

Four Seasons (free hostess set)

Daffodil Delight
Tangerine Tango
Marina Mist, Lucky Limeaid, and Early Espresso markers, for coloring the bird.

Tangerine Tango
Whisper White
Brights Designer Paper Stack (for dotted Daffodil Delight printed paper)

Tangerine Tango Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon
Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder for the Big Shot
2 1/2 Inch Circle Punch (to punch hole in the front of the card and for the Tangerine Tango circle behind the wreath)
2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle Punch (to punch out the wreath)
1 1/4 inch Circle Punch (for Tangerine Tango circle behind the butterfly)
1 inch Circle Punch (to punch out bird and butterfly)

Well stampers, that is my post for today. Hope you'll all get outside in the sunshine and soak up some of those warming rays!  Have a great weekend, everyone, and I'll see you back here on Monday for another classic card!
