First-ever blog give-away + sneak peek

Okay, cyber friends. I want to hear from you! I'm doing my first ever blog give-away and am so excited. Here's how it works:

Post a comment about this post. Just follow the prompts to post your comment. Once you do that, your name will be entered into a drawing. The prize: a Bermuda Bay In Color Stampin' Write Marker. If you win and I see you regularly, I will just give you the marker. If you live afar, I will mail it, within the continental United States. So start commenting!

The card to the right features the brand new Vintage Vogue stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog which will go into effect January 5, 2010. I've called this card Blue Suede Vogue (no shoes:). There are 2 lovely greetings in the stamp set, but for this card, I pulled out the brand new Sale-a-Bration set Vintage Labels. This set(Vintage Labels) is available absolutely free during Sale-a-Bration! I love both these sets as they have amazing versatility. Stay tuned in the days ahead for more samples using these sets and others from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure.

This Blue Suede Vogue card is just one of the original designs I created for a set sampler swap for the Occasions Mini I participated in. If you are in one of my Hostess Clubs (cards), you will be making this card (along with 2 other projects) in our January meeting.

Vintage Vogue, Vintage Label stamp sets
Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue Classic Stampin' Pads
Brocade Blue, Kraft, Vanilla Card Stocks

  2. I really like your card. I can see why Kelly chose it for the blog finds of the day. If I happen to win your drawing, please draw another name. I already have the marker you're giving away, so it should go to someone who needs it. Thanks.

  3. As I said in my email, I *love* this "new" soft suede color & this blue offsets it so well. This is a card style that Lisette would just love to make! Can't wait to show her! (posted by

  4. Great card. I love the colors. Reminds me of a sweet summer afternoon out in the country somewhere. Love it.
