as I was clearing the soon-to-retire sets off my stamp shelves. I found a bunch of sets that had not been used since last year; in fact...cough...some were ones I ordered on last year's preorder and I'd only used once or twice. Ack! Tomorrow we'll be able to preorder sets for the next catalog, so if I don't get a little more use out of these now, they may sit there until they retire. And that, my fellow addicts, would be a tragedy.
Since I liked the sketch challenge on SCS (SC182) last week, I decided to use Zoofari and have a bit of fun. And I was also very pleased to be able to mount up Outlined for Fun, a set I bought out of the last catalog and which went on the dormant list before I could even use it. Since it's not on the retired list and it's not on the dormant list for the next catalog, one must assume it's in the soon-to-come Fall Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog (aren't we glad we don't have COLLECTIONS anymore? I always think of phone calls from those agencies during dinner...not that I have ever gotten one, but still...)
Ingredients: Stamps - Zoofari, Wonderful You, Outlined for Fun; Paper - Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White, So Saffron; Ink - Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Brocade Blue, Sahara Sand, Close to Cocoa, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel, Certainly Celery, Ballet Blue, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, Basic Grey, So Saffron; Other - Aquapainter, gold eyelets, white gel pen, light blue and black gingham ribbon, 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" square punches, dimensionals, sponge wedge
Isn't this STINKIN' CUTE?!?!? Now, if I were living in Kalamazoo still, I'd add an inside verse that went "from all of us in the 'Zoo". 'Cause that's what we call our town, back there!
Well, it's that time of afternoon, when the card makers of the world kick off their shoes and take a little siesta. Card making is HARD WORK, as I keep telling my family. I don't think they believe me, though. Ta!
