Hand Delivered

Buffy and I have this kind of joke about the stamp set I used for this card.  It is a hostess set called Hand Delivered.  It has these legs with the skirt as one stamp but no head, body or arms.  Instead there are stamps like the sign she is holding that take the place of the rest of the body.  There is the sign, balloons, books and a cake.  It is cute but definitely one of those sets that you go “Huh?” when you first look at it.

In any case, I made this card for Buffy.  We do a ribbon share together.  She buys 5 or so rolls of ribbon and I buy a different set and we split it.  That way we get all kinds of ribbon at half the price.  I was supposed to put this card in the package of ribbon I was sending her but forgot to put it in before sealing it.  Maybe I will send it to her for her birthday in September.  Just pretend you aren’t reading this, Buffy.

The Designer Series Paper I used on this card is called InColor 6″ x 6″ paper.  I used a piece of Grapefruit Grove from this stack.  Then I embossed a small piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the Subtle Embossing Folder.  I know it is hard to see in this picture but it looks like the retired Textured Cardstock we use to have.  I also used Bermuda Bay cardstock and my Stampin’ Blends to color.  I don’t have a Grapefruit Grove Blend so I used the light Calypso Coral one.  You can’t really tell the different since the flowers are so small.

Hand Delivered By Mail

I received this awesome card in the mail from Buffy the other day.  It uses a Hostess Set that is going to be in the 2018/2019 Catalog called Hand Delivered.  This stamp set is one of the sets we could order at OnStage.

Honestly, when I first saw this set I could not figure out why Stampin’ Up! would include a stamp set that only had the bottom half of a woman.  Of course, I came up with all sorts of crazy ideas which I will not mention here.  I even made Buffy a card using one of those crazy ideas.  Again, I will not show it here.  It was crazy.  In exchange for this she made me a card using the stamp set in the proper way.  Now I understand and think it is adorable!  You will be able to get this stamp set with a qualifying order beginning in June.

Last weekend we went to Florida for my youngest son’s wedding (Zachary).  It was a beautiful wedding with beautiful weather on a beautiful beach in Santa Rosa Beach.  The water looked like water in the Caribbean.  It was turquoise and just gorgeous ~ a perfect backdrop for a wedding.

Thursday night we all arrived at various times and met for dinner at a fun local restaurant.  Friday morning the ladies went to get manicures and pedicures and the men played golf.  The wedding was Friday night right before sunset.  Then on Saturday we all met at the pool for some fun and lunch and Saturday night was tacos and marguerites on the beach again.  It was Cinco De Mayo.

Here are some beautiful pictures of the bride and groom on the beach.
