Sneak Peek what is coming in the Summer Mini

Here's a Sneak of many! This set is called Elements of Style from the Summer Mini. Available from May 1, 2010-August 31, 2010. I love this set and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make my sister in-law Linda this card for her birthday. She's an April baby. Linda and I have been friends for over 53 years. We met when my family moved to her neighborhood and Linda and I started walking to school together. Oh, that was back in the day.... We had so much fun together, giggling, talking about boys, stopping at the neightborhood grocery store on the way home to buy candy. As we got older, and started dating, we would dream of marrying twins, live next door to each other, have kids the same age, etc. Well, we didn't marry twins but we did marry brothers. Linda married Warren and I married Norris.  Linda and Warren's boys are the same age as out two oldest children. Then, we had little Mary too. Well, the children are all grown up and have children of their own. The four of us married within two weeks of each other and we will be celebrating our 45th wedding anniversaries in August!
Gee...I got carried away going down memory, on with the card.

That's why I used the phrase from the stamp set; "Life is a matter of moments" on the front of her card.
Time passes so quickly. We need to enjoy each day and be sure to tell your family and friends how much you love and appreciate them.

Card Recipe:
For the base of the card, I used the exclusive staionery kit from the Occassion Mini called Country Living Cards a' la carte. The kit comes with 24 sheets of  uniquely designed 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" printed paper, Ballet Blue Stampin' Spot and three stamps with culinary images. For Linda's card I used the paper and Ballet Blue Stampin' Spot along with Certainly Celery, and Apricot Appeal.  The front of the card is Whisper White card stock.

Apricot Appeal and Ballet Blue will be retiring at the end of June. If you simply can't live without them, order them now while supplies last. To order any of the current Stampin' Up! products go to my Stampin' Up! website at:
