Pistachio Pudding

symp 007symp 008 Today’s challenge is to use pistachio pudding with crisp cantaloupe & baked brown sugar or smoky slate & strawberry slush with the twist of adding buttons.  I am in my sad phase with all the retiring products – I will especially miss this embossing folder and the Simply Sketched hostess set.  The interior sentiment is from Love & Sympathy.   This card design is cased from Angie Leach.  Before me on the hop this week was Laura and continuing on you need to go visit Sandy’s blog – I’m sure both are stunning.  Happy last week of April to everyone – it’s hard to believe we will be into May already!  AND we have the excitement of new Stampin Up products just around the corner 🙂

Crumb Cake

crumb 001Challenge this week:  Crumb Cake w/Pumpkin Pie &  So Saffron or Cajun Craze & Garden Green.   Added Piece – use lace. I will miss this stamp set – it has been one of the best  hostess sets – also will miss the background stamp En Francis.  But I’m a ‘collector’ – so if I like them I keep using them.  Thanks for poppin in from Joni’s blog – now keep on hopping and be bop over to Sandy’s blog.  It’s good to have several of our ladies back.

Coastal Cabana

Colors: Coastal Cabana with Calypso Coral, Smoky Slate or Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry ~  Added Piece – use scoring on your card.  You should have dropped in from Laura’s blog – can’t wait to see what she posts this week.  It’s a small hop and I’m last.  If you missed anyone, you can circle back to the beginning by heading over to Robbie’s blog.
