Should'a, Could'a, Didn't

You'd think I would learn my lesson from month to month, but nooooo. I always manage to do things the hard way.

After my Open House last weekend, I figured I'd take five cards off the display walls and call it this weekend's workshop. Nope. First I had to resize one of the cards so I had enough ribbon to go around. Then in my Creative Avoidance mode I made up an entirely new card that I decided to use, and THEN I got even more distracted.

I have some TAC stamps I bought a few years ago, and based on my self-imposed rule of "try to use mostly SU stuff" they have been very neglected lately. I love this set, and decided to actually use it to make some cards for today's Farmers Market - I try to always have at least one new thing each week.

I wanted to try Going Gray with Basic Gray, and I do like it. I love the simplicity and inherent strength of these elephants, so I left them alone on the background and just added the sentiment. I decided to embelish with a piece of ribbon from my non-SU stash. At this rate, the stash will last me a lifetime!

Once I had a few of these made, I started to focus on the workshop projects.

Looking over my large stack of new Designer papers from Stampin' Up! I broke into the Porcelain Prints. I LOVE this paper! I wanted to use the flutterby from the Garden Whimsy set since it is so easy to pop up and make a 'WOW'. I rounded only three of the four corners of the white, just to be different.

Recipe (All products by Stampin' Up!): Stamps - Garden Whimsy; Cardstock - Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou, Whisper White, Porcelain Prints DS paper; Ink - Blue Bayou; Accessories - Blue Bayou double-stitched ribbon.

I got up early this morning due to a wrong number phone call (grrrr) so I decided to be productive and not wait until tonight to cut up the card stock for my kits. Now that THAT is done, all I need to do tonight is pack up the kits and clean off the tables to set up for the workshops. Then I can watch Part 2 of Pride & Prejudice (LOVE that movie!)

I am off to the Farmers Market to hopefully sell something. I have a cooler full of frozen towels to use to try to help me survive the heat. It is ugly out there!
