I've had a very eventful past week! I knew I would be busy with baby shower preparations so I had cards photographed and edited and ready to upload here so I'd be able to keep up with my blog postings...BUT my ailing, old computer had other ideas...it crashed! :-(

Have you seen all the gorgeous papers that are in the Serene Scenery Paper Stack? It's so hard to tell just by viewing the tiny swatches in the catalog. Here's a look at the beautiful textures and scenery in this 6x6 stack. (click on image to see them enlarged)
To finish off the card I used some Linen & Metallic Copper Threads tied in a loopy bow. On the inside I used a piece of the DSP along the bottom that I trimmed off the 6x6 piece to fit my card front.

This past few weeks I've had two different sets of invitations to design and stamp. That has kept me pretty busy! Since they are now complete and have been mailed, I can finally share them here! I used the adorable Baby Bear stamp set to create these baby shower invitations.
Since I had to make 42 of them, and each bear consists of three layers, that means I had to stamp that bear 126 times! It's OK though, because it was a labor of love...these baby shower invitations are for the shower of my first grandchild!

Happy Friday with a long weekend ahead! That's the good news...bad news is Summer of 2016 will be behind us after this weekend. Where did it go!? With school starting and Fall approaching it is time to be thinking of the upcoming Holidays. Stampin' Up! has them all covered in the new Holiday Catalog! Todays card combines some new favorite products with a long time (very long time!) favorite...Lovely as a Tree to create a quick thank you card.
The Mint Macaron background is embossed with the new Pine Bough Embossing Folder. The sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases set is heat embossed in Copper Embossing Powder. The pine cone is cut from the new Copper Foil Sheets using the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.
Thanks for visiting...enjoy your weekend!
