Breezy Asian Love – NEW BLOG LOOK -LSC225/CC223

We’ve had another busy week and I haven’t had a chance to spend much time in my craft room.  My hubby is the coach of my great-nephew’s All-Star baseball team and they have played every night.  I’ve also been working on some church projects- what can I say? - I LOVE being retired!!!  And, as you might have noticed, I have changed the look on my blog and would love to know what you think of it.  I am still fine tuning and would love your suggestions.

I’ve decided that SU!’s Parisian Breeze DSP is my all time favorite and it is being retired, so I have stocked up for the future and used a little slice of it on today’s challenge card.  It’s a two-fer, sort of.  Today’s Limited Supply Challenge was to use stamps with a different language in our design to give our cards an International Flair.  Also, I thought Tuesday’s Color Challenge sounded interesting - Breezy Ruby Whispers- so I thought I would combine the challenges.  My sweet DIL Jennifer is from Shanghai and I was glad to get to use a sentiment from an old SU! set called Kanji, along with the pretty retired set Brocade Basics.  I heat embossed the brocade image with a new to me embossing powder from American Craft’s Zing collection which is very close to the Ruby Red color.  I was so lucky to win an American Craft’s package in a Stampin’ Out Alzheimer’s drawing that included a set of embossing powders and two marvelous stamp sets.  It is just too cool to support such a worthy cause and get free stuff too!
