Hi everyone! I just have a few things to share this evening. Mom is still here visiting, so I haven’t had as much time to devote to my blog. Once things get back to normal around here, I’m hoping to get back on schedule.
But for now, I do have some news to remind you of regarding two different live chats going on tomorrow, April 28th, at the inspireME ning site. First chat begins at 9 am, and second chat will be at 9 pm, both EST. Check google for the correct times in your zone. We will be releasing a new, mid-season line that is absolutely adorable called Sweet As Cherry Pie. This peek will only be available during the chats until the formal release of the line on May 1st. We will also be announcing the winner of our quarterly banner winner, and sharing a way that your page could be featured in our summer catalog!
You do need to be pre-registered at inspireME to participate in our live chats tomorrow, so be sure to pop on over and take care of that if you haven’t already. There is always tons of inspiration there with our beautiful member gallery and monthly contests and challenges. Be sure to check out our current Show Us Your Backsides contest while you’re over there.
I also have my card for the current challenge over at the Cardalicious blog to share. This week’s challenge is to create a birthday card using the colors blue and green and circles. I know everyone can always use birthday cards, so I hope you all will play along with us. Here is what I did.
Used lots of My Mind’s Eye goodies on here, including the patterned paper, the button, and several of their die-cuts I’ve had in my stash for some time. I hand-cut the bracket using a dingbat I downloaded from the internet as my template, and spelled out my birthday greeting using my favorite new Storyteller alpha stickers from Webster’s Pages. The turquoise trim is also from Webster’s new trim collection. If you haven’t seen the Storyteller alphas yet, you really NEED to. Each sheet contains not only four different colors, but two different sizes as well, with four different colorways to choose from. I would recommend getting all four! ;) We are going to be featuring these alphas and this trim in our May Paper-Playground kit, along with papers and cardstock stickers from A Sweet Life and Magical Wishes. Great way to get these items if you haven’t been able to find them locally!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you all at inspireME tomorrow!
