Isn't this set pretty? I will be the first to admit that I am not a big fan of solid stamps, I would rather sit and color, and I could have totally done that to this set, I could have stamped them and then colored, but I was a good girl and used the rest of the set, and used it as it's purpose as 2-step stamping, and I do like it and it made it quick, even though I am anal and used my stamp-a-ma-jig.
I am love love loving this new DSP from the Summer Mini, and you can order it starting May 1. But what about the Awash with Flowers stamp set? That one needs to be ordered by April 30, yeah you heard me right. This set is a little sneaky peeky from the new catalog. So if you don't get it now, you have to wait until July to order it again. Come on, I know you want it.
If you do, here are the item codes and cost, it comes wood mount as well as clear mount.
#117062 is wood mount and it is $39.95
#120549 is clear mount and it is $27.95
Here's the rest of the card to help you decide. I got the layout and design from Ilina Crouse, I just changed the colors…thanks Ilina (hey did you get the call yet?)

Paper: Tempting Turquoise Textured, Old Olive Textured, Whisper White, Island Oasis DSP

This is a standard size card.
OK so drum roll please the Top 6 on American Idol. Can I tell you that Country is my favorite night? And I love Shania Twain, I could listen to her talk for days, that Canadian accent. Did you know she used to live and was discovered up near where my Dad lives? Neat eh?
So here goes my two cents…
Lee: Oh he makes me cry cause I am so proud of him and how he is growing as a singer and coming out of that shell and how he knocks my socks off every week. It almost looked like he was going to do something at the end with his guitar but people started clapping. Heck, I'd be climbing on the stage if I was there.
Mike: Sorry big guy, I didn't like it. The song was all over the place, low, slow, and then the end with the high notes…ugh. I think he will go home tomorrow.
Casey: I agree with the judges and this might have been his best performance yet.
Crystal: I love the whole Blue Grass sound and how she had the back up singers and instruments. I can't believe the judges didn't like it.
Aaron: So this guy made me cry (and my BFF Tracy too), this is my favorite Shania Twain of all time, I play it over and over. I noticed he changed the lyrics, and then was glad when he explained why.
Siobhan: She totally ruined this song, she did her normal screeching at the end, and I think she also could go home. I can NOT believe that the judges liked this…but then they didn't like Crystal, so what can I say? What are they sipping in those coke glasses?
I voted for Lee, Casey and Aaron. Yeah did you notice? I didn't vote for Crystal. I did like her, but I think the three guys were better, so that is how I voted.
I can hardly wait for tomorrow night, I think the entertainment will be awesome, I think they said Lady Antebellum and I love them.
Well my pillow is calling me, so I am gonna answer it. Hello………….
Have a great Wednesday and thanks for stopping in!

Jacqui Lines says
cute card – I am so proud of you for 2-stepping it instead of colouring!!!
I missed Lee sing and Big Mike, but when they recapped – I was not upset that I missed Mike… Siobhan – yuck I didn't like hers at all – Crystal – I didn't care for her song either – I love her, but did not like the chick singing in the background with her – she looked great though. Aaron did a great job as did Casey – it's getting down to the wire…..

Very pretty card, Di. I'm going to take a 2nd look at that dp because it was not my favorite when I first looked at the mini, but now that see how you've used it on this card, I'm thinking I might change my mind.
I'm with you that Lee, Casey and Aaron were the best performers last night. And I really enjoyed Shania Twain, she's such a lovely person and so very talented! I am not a huge Country music fan, so I was pleasantly surprised at her and how much I enjoyed all the songs (all the performances…Mike? Siobhan? not so much).
Love checking in with you on Wednesdays to get your take on things…..Thanks!!!

This is great. I just love your stuff. I think you are trying to brain wash me into getting the Island Oasis DSP aren't you? I wasn't liking it when I first saw it. Now look what you have done. Thanks for the beauty.
