Celebrate Generosity- Thanks Renee! :)
This month on the Paper Doll's blog Joyce's challenge is to create a card using something in our stash that was "gifted" or a RAK. Awhile back, Renee- another Doll, sent out the prettiest pearls to me. They aren't the standard white pearls (which is why I hoard them so and still have 90% of the original package, lol!) but more of a cream color. They are a Recollections brand, but try as I might, I cannot find them in my Michael's. (sigh)
***Please play along and link up your card to Joyce's post.***
However, I broke them out for this month's challenge. I paired them with the Aqua Mist pattern pack and Birthday Tags. I never really used Berry Sorbet until I had the new ink to match (the old ink formula was just not as vibrant) and I have found a new color to love! (I actually feel that way about Melon Berry too!)
As most of you know I have a cricut that I love but haven't bought a cartridge in forever! I have plenty and with the new craft room online I can do anything I need to do. Well, I broke down when they introduced the new banner cartridge (pennants, I think) and J's was selling it for $20. LOVE it! It was a anniversary gift from DH :) - even better! Banners in 5 shapes, any size, with mats.
