Curtain Call Act 33


I just love the colours Stacey picked this week!  They are fabulous together and this will definitely be a combination I use again - thanks, Stacey :D 

When I saw the large oval in Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week, I knew it was the perfect sketch for this week's Curtain Call because when I see large ovals like this, I immediately think of  Stampin' Up's For All You Do set.  I just love this set!  It fits perfectly in ovals and basically makes your card for you :D

This is a pretty straight forward card as my mojo is in sleep mode after not being used too much for the past three weeks!   However, I was thrilled to be able to use some of my favorite goodies when making this card: my beloved Swiss Dots embossing folder (sigh....), SU's new border punch, Nesties (how did I ever survive without them?!) and my favorite embellishment, ribbon.  What more can a girl ask for :D 

The rest of the Curtain Call Crew have some samples for your inspiration and over the summer we will be having a new guest designer every month! 
And, our June Guest Designer, Christina MacLaren at Seaglass and Sentiments


We'd love it if you joined us too!!  Simply create a card using this week's colours and add your card to Mr. Linky on Stacey's blog.  If  you are uploading to a public gallery, please make sure to use the keyword Curtain Call 33.  Each week, Stacey will select one person to receive her "I Got The Lead At The Curtain Call"  Award as well as five people to receive her "I'm A Top 5 Curtain Call Show Stopper" Award which you can post on your blog, so come on over and join the fun!

Hope to be back soon!  The last three weeks have been crazy busy and I've really missed stamping!!

The garage sale stuff is moving along! I made significant progress yesterday. Today I will make the final push!

BTW-I must have caught the encore performance on the Bachelorette, I got to see Roberto (the episode you told me about.) Guess I'll be rooting for Roberto. They did seem to have chemistry!
