I love the little paws on this card. You can get them in either the C is for Cat or D is for Dog stamp sets. They are a must have for stamping projects including our little friends. Oh, and the heart stamp came from the stamp set Things I Love. I added dimension to my card and envelope with SU! crystal effects.

I love how Young used the Big Shot Butterfly Embosslit - exclusive to SU! inside the card. These butterflies go so well with the Cottage Wall papers.

The card base is one of our IN COLORS - melon mambo, that I'm happy to say will be returning to us on July 1st. I truly love this color. Great Job Katie!

I colored the doll with my stampin write markers and then added crystal effects for the lacquered effect. The card stock colors are bermuda bay, gable green (shucks it's retiring June 30th), whisper white and melon mambo. I used the jumble alphabet for Pat's name and also used the dotted embossing folder for texture on the card.
The rose red flowers on the envelope are from Greenhouse Garden. This set is 20% off until April 30th on special with some other spring sets - Manhattan Floral, Trendy Trees, and Fancy Flowers.
ALL BRAND NEW

Some more Remarkable stampers at the retreat. My good friend Lisa Chattergee has the purple scarf on. She is a dear sweet friend.
Janet Wakeland is the owner of the Remarkable Stampers and was a fabulous hostess for the retreat.
Diana Hnat was gorgeous in her outfit. I love the red in it. Look at Diana's large ruby ring courtesy of Janet. Necklace is from Janet also.

THE SOUTHERN CARIBBEAN IN 4 DAYS!
The bird is stamped in sahara sand and so too is the 24-7 circle above on the flip up. The flowers in the background are from a brand new stamp set coming out May 1st in the Summer Mini Catalog. I stamped them using barely banana classic ink. Remember that we have some great colors retiring soon, so stock up on your inks and refills and card stock before the end of the current SU! catalog year.
Also, on the front of the card, I cut out each of the little flowers and "popped" them up with SU! dimensionals. There is a lot of texture to this card. I must thank Linda for this card idea. She came up with most of it. This is certainly a great card idea and if you are careful when you cut your card base out, you can get 2 cards from one piece of card stock. I promise I'll teach this card at one of the future classes. Be sure to check out my upcoming class schedule for April and May on my website. I can't wait til Cindy swaps out the cards. Once I get mine in the mail, I'll be sure to post some of the cards for you.

This card features the stamp set eastern blooms and is really cheerful and colorful. I used retiring colors on this card - in particular the pink passion card stock as the background.
Linda likes cards that have unique folds and this one is no exception. I like that there are several layers for different messages.
This is a close up of the inside birthday wish. Do you like my use of the boho backgrounds stamp?
Here you get a better idea of how this card folds.
I hope Linda receives her card by today so that it is in time for her birthday.
Happy Birthday Linda!
