Create with Connie and Mary 247

Happy Saturday my peeps! It was a rainy windy day here yesterday all day. I did get to the Apple Store with my buddy Anthony and get his new iPad. We have some tweaking to do to make it perfect for him but we’ll get there. We went to this really great pizza place called Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza. They had these coal fire oven wings with onions and no buffalo sauce. They were crispy and delicious as was the pizza. What are all of you up to this weekend. I’m off to Manhattan this morning to see some friends and maybe wander a little. I do love the city, always something new to see or do!

Today’s card – Create with Connie and Mary Sketch 247

CCMC 247

I knew exactly what I was going to use for the right side of the panel as soon as I saw the sketch. The base of my card is Basic Gray and the background is some This and That Epic Day Designer Series Paper. I used the “Vintage” Spiral Border Punch for the right side of the panel. A Sticker from the the Epic Day This and That Designer Stickers Pack is on the panel with some Daffodil Delight Flowers on the top and some Epic Day This and That Washi Tape behind the greeting from the A Round Array Stamp Set. I hope that you enjoyed my Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge card. Thanks for spending some creative time with me today. Have a great Saturday! 🙂

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

  1. WOW! I love how you showcased all of the new products! Now if SU! would only bring back that spiral punch!! Thanks for joining us in the sketch challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary!

  2. I love your ‘vintage’ terminology for the retired Spiral punch. It brought a smile to my face as did your use of ‘host’. That is most appropriate in your blog posts and I appreciate your presence in the SU world.

  3. Awsome card with all the This and That products. Like the Spiral Punch – would like to have one of those. Did you buy the This and That Journal…….If you did, post what you have done with it – I bet it is out of this world – fabulous.

  5. Sounds like your weekend got off to a great start! And I hope you had a nice time in Manhattan 🙂 I love your card – it is so nice and cheerful and it incorporates so many fun elements! “Vintage”.
