A Little Webster’s Pages

Hi everyone!  I am really in almost a state of shock that it’s Thursday already.  Still feels like the week is just getting started, and here it is almost the weekend already.  Not that I’m complaining about that, mind you.  Just where on earth does the time go?

My mom has been here visiting with us the last couple of weeks, and that has kept us on a busy schedule.  Took her to the nursery last weekend where we picked out some perennials for my back yard.  They are only one gallon plants, so I figured it wouldn’t be that difficult a task to get them planted.  We picked out 10 before we decided that was enough for now.  Thank goodness we stopped, because it feels like we’ll never get these plants in the ground.  Each hole is it’s own little battle fought against the compacted clay “soil” of North Carolina.  We now have 8 of the plants in, after working two very full days on them.  I do believe that all my once-held desire to garden has completely and permanently disappeared! 😉

But on to better news, I do have some Webster’s Pages things to share today.  The first is the scoop on some live chats that Webster’s will be holding on their community blog site, inspireME, on April 28th.  I’m excited to say that this time, we will be holding two separate chats during the day in hopes that more of our international friends can join us.  One at 9 am and one at 9 pm, both Eastern Standard time.  You can google the time zones for your area to see exactly when they would match up for you.  We will be previewing the new mid-season release titled Sweet as Cherry Pie, announcing the winner of our quarterly banner drawing, giving away some free prizes, debuting the new Webster’s Facebook group, and just hanging out.  I hope you all can join us for the fun!

I also have a card to show using both of the new Webster’s CHA lines, Magical Wishes and A Sweet Life.  It’s always a sad occasion when you need a sympathy card, but the beautiful and classical lines were perfect for what I was hoping to create.

The paper is a mixture of both lines.  I really like the blend of the bold and soft colors and patterns.  The garden gate, raspberry branch and yellow flower were cut directly from the papers, and the gorgeous butterfly is from the new vellum journaling cards.  Both the trims are from Webster’s new collection, as well.  I used one of my older Stampin’Up stamps for the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope Spring is shining down on all of you!

  1. What a beautiful card. I love the picket fence it really ties it all together. Thanks for the tip about Stazon ink & glossy paper. I imagine that’s why Tim Holtz does so much “altered/distressed looks with it! That wasn’t meant to be derrogatory, he’s a smart man :- ) and his work is incredible, he makes it look so easy! (ha!). Have a wonderful weekend it is coming on us quick!

  2. Hi Audrey! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I signed up for Webster’s site a little early in advance of the challenge I am participating in, “show us your backside.” I didn’t know how long it would take to get approved to upload my pages, so I registered a little early. No problems though, great site! Love your card too, so pretty!

  4. Such Beautiful card creation even for a sad occasion . Love the vellum butterfly !

    I’m just hoarding the WP Sweet Life & Magical Wishes papers for what I’m not sure ! I should try to make cards with them at least ! 😉 we finally got hold of the story teller alphas & the die cuts this week ! & OMG ! just the die cut & alphas cost 2-3 times more than the papers ! lol I think it’s time I have to start buying from US online stores again ! & no trims arrived yet still ! sigh .

  5. Beautiful card! I just love the little picket fence!

    I am so ready to plant too! We usually have to wait until around Mother’s Day to guarantee no more freezing. 🙂

  6. I love the combination, what a great card. I know how tiring family can be, how great it is to have them visit and how great it is when they go home. (wink wink)

  7. That card is gorgeous, audrey! Totally perfect for a sympathy card! I’m trying to do a garden this year, too, but i’m not nearly as ambitious as you as I haven’t started yet, lol! Enjoy your time with your mom 🙂

  8. I LOVE the new papers and your card is gorgeous! I completely understand the soil issue and how hard it is to plant here in NC, it makes gardening a big challenge!
