So Charming...

My friend Terri and I had another cardmaking day yesterday.  I actually made several of each card this time.  I usually only make one or two.  I also managed to mail out three cards today.  I honestly can't remember the last time I mailed out cards.  Isn't that terrible?  My friend Cheryl has challenged me to send out 5 cards next week (between Sunday and Wednesday).  She will be calling me Wednesday evening to see how I did.  It's not like I don't have 100 or so cards in my stamp room at any given time.  I just seem to have a hard time getting them sent.

I just received a new stamp set called Charming.  It was part of  one of the Holiday Bundles that's available through Stampin' Up right now(click on the Shop Online button for more information).  And I used this stamp set (one of the stamps anyway) on most of the cards we made yesterday.  That's kind of unusual for me also.  I normally use lots of different sets.

This card also uses retired ribbon that is available on the Stampin' Up Clearance Rack.  I used markers (Riding Hood Red, Old Olive) to color the image, then stamped it on Whisper White cardstock.  I also used the new Clear Scallop Sizzlet, I diecut two of them from Basic Black cardstock and attached them together to get a little big longer scallop rectangle.

Thanks for looking,
Kim
