Chic Challenges 4 - CC-04

Welcome to my Chic Challenges card post for challenge CC-04. With Stampin' Up! retiring some of their items and introducing some neat new ones, I decided to showcase a little of both. It hasn't been that long ago that I picked up the Beautiful Birthday wood block stamp and I know I haven't gotten full use of it since I bought it. So here it is, in my challenge card this week.  I so love this stamp and will miss it terribly so I am trying to make good use of it while I can. I hope you like my card and that you join us over at chic challenges to show us what you can do with this week's sketch.

Thinking Of You

Today's card is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from last week's Pinterest Finds.  You can visit my board and see ALL the Pinterest Picks of the Week or stop in on my Pinterest Finds page (in the menu bar above) and see my last 30 days of finds - or scroll all the way to the bottom to see them in a widget at the foot of the page.  The original card used quite a few of the new up-coming 2013-2015 in-colors.  I used the 2012-2014 in colors on mine. Also, I made a horrible boo-boo, betcha can't see it!

Sunday Share - Pinterest Finds

Happy Mother's Day everyone! Today's Sunday Share is all about my new Pinterest Finds page.  I wanted to share some of the inspiration I find online with all of you - I use Pinterest A LOT.  Where do you find your inspiration?

To start with, I want to share a retiring stamp set that was one of the first sets I strongly considered adding to my starter kit when I signed up -  Easy Events.

Just love that card and stamp set and now that it's retiring, I must remove it from my wish list - but if it's on your wishlist - get it while you can! It really is an all around nifty stamp set for making all occasion cards. I love that you can color the images so that it coordinates with ANY card stock and papers.
