*I Love This Set*

It is so nice to be home. And it was nice to have a weekend with no real commitments or requirements. The only thing that had to be done was grocery shopping which I hate doing on weekends so instead of saving a few bucks, I paid a little extra and went to the Calgary Co-Op closest to our house that just opened a few months ago... it's in an area that is still being developed so it's never very busy.

The weather this weekend was absolutely beautiful but oh so hot! I spent a lot of time sitting on the swing in the backyard (one of those cushioned 3-person things) in the shade reading "Harry Potter". I started re-reading the series when I went to Regina at the beginning of July and finished book 5 last night. I won't read the new book (book 7) until after I am done #6

I borrowed the Baroque Motifs stamp set from my girlfriend Kelly before I went away at the beginning of the month.... and I now own it for myself. When I first saw this set, it didn't really appeal to me.... but then I saw what people were doing with it and I had to have it!

I gave this card with the wedding shower gift.

items used: (all items Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted)
*Cardstock: Whisper White
*Images: Baroque Motifs
*Ink: Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate
*Embellishments: sheer white ribbon, Bling (not SU!), pop dots

I love the set too! It is so easy to make beautiful things. I am going to have lots of "never do crafts" people at my open house for my first SU workshop and I think I'll use this set. Great card!
