LinkThis is my entry for the Connie and Mary Challenge for this week. Very simple I know LOL!! We had a sketch to use and I threw out two earlier cards which I was not happy with. Who would think I could make such hard work out of this sketch! I just went back into my comfort zone and used flowers!!

I can actually see the top of my stamping desk again after a massive clean up - usually I tidy up and just shift things from one place to another but was very ruthless this time and threw out lots!! Amazing how much is spread around when making cards!

It was great this morning to look through the retired SU list and the pre order items. Some items in the retired list are up to 40% off so that is a real discount. Can't wait now to get the new catalogue when my order comes hopefully in the next week!

All supplies for this card are from Stampin' Up!

Card: Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla textured and smooth, Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Springtime Vintage DSP
Stamps: Just Believe, Walk in the Park, Teeny Weeny Sentiments
Ink: Pear Pizzazz
Other: Pear Pizzazz seam binding, Boho Blossoms punch, Tag punch, Pearls, Elegant Bouquet embossing folder
