Cheers

These stamps are from a Stampin' Up! set that will be in our new catalogue in April! It is called Cheers to You. I have just used the one word from the wording stamp.

I used some of the new In colours that we will have from next month - Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point. They are so different to the retiring In Colours and I was not sure I would take to them. They are really beautiful.

The Pacific Breeze background has been stamped with the Sanded Background stamp in Versamark and I have used Dazzling Diamonds on the glasses. It would have been so good to use Liquid Applique for the beer froth but I just scribbled over with the white Gel pen.

I sure hope I turn out some better cards using this set than this card. Oh well I will think again!

Nothing wrong with your card Jean. Sounds like you are having a day like mine with your cards.

Nothing at all wrong with it, it is so cute! I think sometimes we can get caught up in trying to create master pieces and dont give ourselves a break when we create just a "great card" (at least that is what I do)I think it is really cute, give yourself a pat on the back:)

What a great card! You've added some awesome details... I can see nothing wrong with it at all! The "new" incolors are a lot of fun, aren't they?! Unfortunately, for those of us in the US, they will soon be the retiring incolors--in about 3 months. I haven't been able to embrace Pacific Point as much as you have with this card... I love how it looks. Thanks for the inspiration!
