Yeah, I know this paper is retired but I did not have time to schedule the class while it was current, so I just made sure to order enough for my class when I could do it, and it is July 18, 19 & 20. I only have a few seats left so holler if you are interested.
Everyone will get their own pack of Parisian Breeze Designer Series Paper, and a pack of Summer Sun corduroy buttons at class and will be making a Daisies frame, and 2 cards. This is one of the cards they will be making. This pattern has been all over the internet and I can see why, it is beautifully designed and surprisingly simple to make, and my gosh I could never have figured it out. Here is the genius that did, Bonnie Szwalkiewicz .
Stamp Set: Herb Expressions
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Going Gray
Paper: Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP, Whisper White
Misc: Brown wide grosgrain ribbon
This stamp set was another one that I knew I had to have as soon as I saw it. I love the watercoloring look of it, and you can not mess it up when you color. Go out of the lines, I don't care, it makes it look better!!!! That's not the right color of Thyme! I don't care, I aint stamping the word thyme, it's just a wild flower now. Fun! Fun!
Well I am hitting the sack, I am reading the book Wicked. Have you read it? If you have, did you like it? I have not seen the play, it is here in town but not sure on cost and if I could get there to see it. The book is a little raunchy and I asked my BFF Tracy and Ellie a couple questions, and what I asked them never happened in the play but they were in the book. So I was just curious. I mean I don't mind a bit of raunchiness when I am reading…I mean my gosh I mostly read vampire books…ha! I guess it just surprised me, that is all, when I started reading it.
I had a blast the last couple days with the 2 card fun. Did you see that Sue C won? Congratulations! If you have not emailed me, make sure you do so I can send you the cards. I am going to do it again with another stamp set. Fun stuff.
OK, have a super Friday, man that week went fast. The internet people are supposed to come and fix my cable, between 1 and 5…gee wonder when they will get here? We still have not heard when Direct TV is going to come get us all hooked up…it's a big old waiting game my friends! Tick! Tock!
Thanks so much for stopping in!
So are you gonna tell us which card was your favorite?? I mean you mentioned that you had a favorite, and we've been waiting…! Everyone wants to know if the one they picked is your favorite!!

Cute card – I have yet to try one.
I have read the book and seen the play. I enjoyed the book. It explained how Oz came to be. Of course, it takes away some of the brilliant fantasy the Wizard of Oz movie created (never read the book). And they can't recreate the book in a 2 hour play, so it is a bit different, including the ending. Overall, I thought they did a decent job of converting it to a play and think it is worth seeing the play after you read the book. Let us know what you think when you are done.

Love this card. I already miss the Parisian Breeze DSP!!
Wicked is a great book! I read it in college and I loved it. I haven't seen the Broadway show either though-I would love to go, if it's ever in town I'll be there for sure! Gregory Maguire also wrote a book called 'Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister' it's the story of Cinderella told from the step sisters point of view. I haven't read it yet, but it's in my pile of books to read, hopefully soon.
I have read Wicked and also saw the play. Loved the book–was a little thrown off in places but overall felt it was a great spin on "the rest of the story" as Paul Harvey would say. The play was slightly different than the book. There were times that I kept waiting for certain things that they didn't cover and then songs or scenes that were added that just moved me. After you read Wicked, read the sequel "Son of a Witch".

Absolutely gorgeous card! I love that paper and that set is another one that really tempted me. 🙂

I read the book (a loooong time ago!) and saw the play with my mom and DD who was 9 at the time. We see lots of live stuff and this was our favorite for the "theatrical experience". I also love the theme, which came first; the evil or the good? I would say it is well worth it to see the live performance. Love the card, I did one and thought it was fun to try and co-ordinate all those panels!
Oh! I am definately going to have to try this! What fun!!
