In with the new, out with the old.


Oh boy it's certainly weather for the ducks and the penguins.  It's rain, rain, rain and freezing to boot! 

To explain my post title, my card uses a set that is sadly leaving us at the end of the month but also uses some new products from the new mini starting in May. 

I was having a play getting inky last night.   I played around with several neutrals - Sahara Sand, River Rock, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede - and Baja Breeze.  I stamped Fruit and Flowers in Pacific Point with a few flowers in the background in Baja Breeze stamped off first.  Little pearls from the Basic Pearls set were added to the flowers. 

I added Happy Birthday from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Soft Suede then mounted it onto a panel of Pacific Point.  

For my card base I used Crumb Cake.  Did you notice the fancy edge to my card?  It's cut with an Edgelit Die from the new catalogue and it's also embossed with a matching  Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I attached a strip of Pacific Point to the inside of the card which shows nicely against the fancy edge. 

So it's the last few days of the Spring mini catalogue.  I'd hate you to miss out on any products you'd been eyeing up. 

Thanks for coming past and visiting.  Hope it's dry where you are. x
