Busy, busy, busy this week. Here it is Friday and I'm finally getting around to posting the card I created for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. What a fun card! When I first saw the Summer Smooches DSP I thought wow this may be too bright and colorful for me. But I have to tell you I have fallen in love with this paper! Remember there are only 4 days left to order this Summer Smooches DSP. After that you will need to wait until you can order from the new catty in June.
- The squares are 1-1/4 inch. Using a 1-1/4 inch square punch is the fastest way to cut them. Of course if you don't own that punch you can always cut them with your paper cutter.
- You will notice the sketch shows the squares with space between them. It made me crazy trying to line them all up so I chose to butt them against each other. (Remember, you don't have to follow the sketches exactly.)
- The fabric brads are gorgeous and I am so going to miss them. If you haven't heard yet they are gone and no longer available! I hope you ordered yours before they ran out.
- I only had a small piece of the baker's twine left and thought it made the perfect antenna.
Stamp Set: Fabulous Phrases
Paper : Summer Smooches DSP (125409), Daffodil Delight (119683), Tangerine Tango (111349), Very Vanilla (101650)

I changed the card some and made it part of my I Love Cards Buffet last night. I wasn't sure everyone would have the patience to glue on all the squares. :) Same big beautiful butterfly and brad. I'm not sure which one I like better. How about you? Which is your favorite?
Additional information about the Accessories Retired List
- You will notice that all the ink pads are on the retired list. Like I said the day the list came out...not to worry...the colors are not changing. The ink pads are getting a make over and it's exciting. New firm foam pads will offer better ink coverage and therefore better stamped images.
- The Craft Ink Pads and Refills will be discontinued except for black and white.
- The Stampin' Write Markers are on the list because in the new catty only select markers will be available individually. They will still be available in color collections
- 12" x 12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered
- 12" x 12" Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colors and color collections.
- Two items were put on the retired list in error. They were the Craft Scissors and Paper Snips. Because they were included in error they will not be offered at a discounted price
I hope this clears up some questions you have about the retired lists. If you have further questions please feel free to contact me by email or phone.
Have a wonderful Friday!
