My #1 pick from the SAB was Lovely Lattice. The flowers displayed on the oval 'doily' are begging to be coloured using your favourite medium. I chose Stampin' Blends in retired Pink Pirouette. As I write this, the light shade is on Clearance Rack for $3.25. It really doesn't matter what colour you choose when you are only giving the slightest hint around the edges of the petals.
There are no sentiments with this particular stamp set, but a very sweet, single bloom and a line of overlocked stitching. Better Together is one of those more pricey stamp sets, but it is always useful with a sentiment and something for the inside for most events. I particularly like to send a handmade condolence card, its just that extra personal touch, but it helps if they are already-made ready-to-go when news like that comes along.
This image is upside-down going by the picture in the SAB catalogue (page 15) but it can actually be turned anyway you like. After CASE-ing the card below, I couldn't bear to cover any of the flowers over, and chose to use the large white space for my sentiment.
It's a big blog hop this week, everyone is keen to start the New Year right, plus you'll meet new crew members as you hop around. If you can leave a comment to say hi, they'll be very happy.
