#660 – Beautiful Day – March 22, 2019

I thought we could use some butterflies and flowers for a little touch of spring!  How gorgeous are these cards?  I love the detail with sequins and twine.  The beauty is always in the details!
The cards use the “Beautiful Day” stamp set (pg. 134 – Annual Catalog).  Sometimes we get so involved in the seasonal catalogs, we forget that there is a large annual catalog filled with LOTS of great product.  Keep in mind that the annual catalog is ending June 3, 2019.  So take a peek and see if there is anything on your wish list.  Sale-a-Bration is the best time to take advantage of getting your order in and getting FREE product.

#145912 – Beautiful Day – $29.00 (wood mount)
#145915 – Beautiful Day – $21.00(clear mount)

This is a great set to color with the Blends.  Coloring is good therapy for you and when you are done, you have a lovely finished card to give to a friend,

#148712 – Perfectly Paired – $19.00

A few pictures from my visit to Arizona.  I spent some time with dear friends that I have known for almost 35 years.  We are very blessed to have stayed in touch throughout the years.  We had brunch at Sanctuary Resort on Sunday.  The weekend was spent celebrating a half dozen birthdays among our group.

Friday night we included the spouses and had a pizza dinner.

Saturday night we went out to dinner and then had fun at an Escape Room.  The theme was “The Lost Dutchman”.  It was a lot of fun!

Breakfast at Sanctuary Resort!

Love the sunshine and the view of Camelback Mountain.
