Oh Groovy Guava, I do love you, even if you are SO "last year"!

Today's the day for a corny title, and a very quick blog post, my friends.  Family commitments have kept me away from my blog, and from my craft room, this past week.  I have stolen a few minutes (when I should be preparing my family a meal, but there are more pressing issues at hand...) to share with you a card that I made 'just for the sake of it', because I wanted to give some love to my neglected Groovy Guava ink and papers.  This was one of the "in colours" from Stampin' Up! last year; available only for 12 months.  I love it, and was a bit sad to say goodbye, but still have ink, ribbon, card and paper to keep me happy.

I have used some buttons from my rather extensive stash - how well does that big button in the top left match the card, though?  Everything else is from Stampin' Up!  Here's what I made:

Guava embrace life

Stamps: Embrace Life, Best Yet

Card: Kraft, Groovy Guava, Very Vanilla, Gable Green

DSP: Ginger Blossom

Ink: Groovy Guava Stampin' pad, Versamark

Other: Clear embossing powder, corner rounder punch, paper piercer, deckled rectangle nestabilities, kraft taffeta ribbon, buttons (not SU!), Groovy Guava stitched ribbon, mini glue dots, white string

Hope you like it - that's the only creation I have to share for now, but have firm plans for more 'play time' sometime in the next week!   Best be off to half-prepare some food, then pick up my youngest from football training ("mother of the year" did the drop-and-run tonight, because Ethan had already done tennis training, and I needed a bit of 'time out' - is that bad??).

  1. That's not bad at all, just keeps you sane!!We must have been telepathic, I have used Embrace life on my offering too. Your Guava is indeed groovy and not at all insipid.LOL Very pretty card

  2. Hi Christine,
    I Love Groovy Guava as well. So very sad to see the in colours go from last year. Love the Card.
    Take Care

  3. I didn't know so many people loved Groovy Guava! Love how you have used those buttons :) Gorgeous card :)

  4. This lovely Christine. I think it is great to use papers and cards you love, old or new. Is the deckle nesty new?? Judy.
