Lucky Elephant

When I first saw this stamp set in the Occasions Catalog I wasn’t sure about it – but when I saw this swap card yep, I knew I needed to add it to my wish list!

Anita used the color pallet found in the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper. Rich and bold I think this makes a gorgeous card!

And with the Ringling Bros. Circus holding it’s final performances in May this year it is a timely stamp for me. I remember all those field trips as a child going to the circus in Milwaukee and being fascinated by all the colors and sounds. I guess, since Baraboo Wisconsin was home to The Ringling Bros. Circus from 1884 thru 1918 and the museum, Circus World was created from this original home for them in the 50’s there is a definite connection to the circus for my family and those in the area.

On a personal note I’m heading out to a retreat for the weekend in Jasper and I don’t know what the internet will be like there so I may not be posting tomorrow.

Oh So Succulent

Has the succulent trend caught your attention? Seems like you see these wonderful little plants every where. And Stampin’ Up! has got the paper version for you if you want to include these little guys in your paper crafting projects too! And if you’re like me you’ll appreciate the fact there is no watering, since I don’t have much of a green thumb, LOL!

Here are two wonderful cards made by Theresa who gave them to me in a swap using the Succulent Garden suite of products.

Wonderful right? If you haven’t seen the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper already it is beautiful with it’s soft subtle colors and patterns and perfect for spring. I’ve given you the supplies below used for both these cards today below. I don’t normally do that but thought you’d like both of them since I can’t decide which I like best!
