Definitely Decorative - at Blue Sky Creations

Today I made a trip to see my Dear Friend Danita for the Grand Opening of a store she and Marcia opened in Southern Arizona.  Over the cashier and just as you come into the store is the "Many Welcomes Sign" from Stampin' Up and the Definitely Decorative catalog (pg 29 - many sizes and 3 colors to choose from) and it looks awesome!!

I really need to start wearing heels when I go to see Danita... I'm such a shorty!  LOL

The store is fabulous!  Filled with candles and soaps and lotions and the fragrances just draw you in.  The inner room to the store is Danita's area with her beautiful hand made cards, card sets, gift bags and other unique gift items. 

Congratulations my Dear Friend!  You've done yourself proud.

Thank you for looking in today.

Today was Kristi's workshop and I can't tell you how much fun it was to be able create again after all the long hours we've had working these last couple of months. Our first card was made using the French Foliage stamp set. A very clean and simple card that was fun to do with everyone's card coming out different and unique. The inks and papers used were Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler. The sentiment stamp is from the 2009-10 IB&C called Holiday Collection.

The 2nd card uses Candy Cane Christmas DSP from the Holiday Mini, Curly Cute stampset and Real Red, Garden Green and WhisperWhite CS and Real Red ink.  Love the Candy Cane Christmas paper - it's so bright and cheery.

The 3rd card was a multi-purpose card that the girls made using pre-punched Square Scallop from the Build A Bear Pawsitively Prints DSP.  The sample I made was a birthday card, obviously, but we had a multitude of stamps to choose from so the card could really be anything you want and the best yet, it's a great way to use up pieces and parts of scraps you may have after another project.

Thank you for visiting and have a stamp happy day!
