All About Gingham Gala for TGIFC213…

Howdy Folks!

Thank you for peeking in for today’s card!

You are in for a treat!

I made 2 Cards…same layout and design, just different Colors!


Today’s Challenge is for one of my favorite DSP Stampin’Up! has ever made!

(I say that about a lot of Stampin’Up! DSP!!!)

The DSP is from the Occasions Catalog that will expire on June 3rd.

I did get an extra package of this Gingham Gala DSP

And now I see that all the Color Collections, that

Stampin’Up! will have, in the new Catalog (live on June 4th!),

will have a pattern of the Gingham in them! Squee! That makes me happy!


Here is the Challenge from TGIFC #213!


I do not have a favorite color here, they are all beautiful!

However, I did narrow it down to 2 Colors…hence, the 2 cards!


CARD #1-Highland Heather


I am now ‘in-like’ with the Free as a Bird stamp set!

Aren’t they adorable?


Card # 1 inside!


Clean and very simple!


Card #2-Daffodil Delight


Same everything, except the color!

Inside Card #2


I am liking the both of these Cards!

I am now going to make 3 more, in the

Lemon Lime Twist, Balmy Blue, and Grapefruit Grove!

A good way to use up my stash of DSP and add to the Birthday stash of cards!
