Hi everyone!

It is a rainy Saturday in Georgia.  It seems we have had alot of rainy days but it is a really good thing because our lakes are so low from the lack of rain last year.  My parents and my brother all live up on Lake Lanier and it still needs lots of water to get to normal water levels.  So rain is good for the lakes, but bad for tennis matches and soccer games.  Luckily Ryan played his tennis match early – yesterday afternoon – he lost 8 games to 1 against a boy that was 13 years old and 6 feet tall!  Greg’s tennis was cancelled and Ryan’s soccer game is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. 

I wanted to share this card with you.  It was the last project that we made at the STARZ meeting last weekend.  I really like this style of a card – especially to use it for invitations.  It is like a pocket and you pull out the inside panel where you can have all of your information.  This particular one is a thank you card.  The colors used here are Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, and Almost Amethyst.  The Designer Paper is called Tea Party.  The stamped flower is from Petal Pizzazz – but we ran the white cardstock through the Big Shot with a Texture plate first and then stamped the flower – which gives it a totally different look.  You may also notice a new accessory on there too.  Coming April 1st the new Occasions Mini includes new Designer Hardware – the center of the flower is a Basic Jumbo Grommet.  These will come in an assortment with Basic Black, Silver, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White.  The ribbon is the new Whisper White Organza Ribbon in the main catalog. 

Enjoy your weekend!
