French Foilage Birthday

Well I had my fourth Saturday at the Farmers Market and I really expected it to slow down for me. After all most folks go to these things for the fresh vegetables etc. There are a couple of gals selling Epicore products but again food related. So I really did think things would slow down for me but to my pleasant surprise NOPE I am still fairing well with my cards and retired stamp sets.

The only problem I have right now is keeping up with making cards, when you have other obligations it is not so easy to producing lots of cards. So I had to get some help by viewing SC for some ideas to get me going.

I had regretted not purchasing French Foliage when it was in the mini and then a gal on SC was selling hers so I purchased it and was very happy to see that it is is the Big Catalogue for 2011-2012.

I was inspired by a card on SC for my card today, I did change it up a bit by using different colors. I have most of my current stamp pad colors in boxes for my Card Buffet on Friday so I was pushed to use what I had left on my shelves. This can be a good thing, as I kept the colors because I liked them.

I stamped the spots in Basic Brown, the words and shadowing in Creamy Carmel the leaves were Cajun Craze, Basic Brown and Purley Pomerate. I had some seam binding from my LSS as well as the fake brads.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely card Peg! The stamped leaves look real in their detail and the color you chose. I didn't buy the set either but keep looking at it more & more. After seeing your card, I may just break down and add it to my too many stamps.

Good that you can sell your retired sets at the Farmers' Market. I pass all mine on to my daughter and grandchildren so I know they have a good home and I can borrow if I'd like to use them again.

Have a great summer!
