Today we had a sure-fire sign of Spring being in the air; what a beautiful, sunny day in Melbourne.  It's so nice to feel the warmth of the sun again.  Here's my card for today:

Saffron,celery great friend

Stamps: Great Friend

Card: Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Certainly Celery

Ink: So Saffron and Certainly Celery stampin' pads, Staz-On jet black ink pad, Versamark ink pad

DSP: Tea Party

Other: Certainly Celery 5/8" and 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Ice Circle and Clear Circles rhinestone brads, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch, sponge dauber, dimensionals

Aren't these colours nice and "spring-y"?  Stampin' Up! has a FABULOUS promotion this month, which allows you to get the following ribbon bundle for FREE!

CU_ribbonbundle_114618 - September special

With every order of Stampin' Up! product to the value of $100 or more, you can receive TWO rolls of ribbon absolutely free!  If you love ribbon as much as I do, this is enough to cause heart palpitations!!

These ribbons are not available to buy, and are on offer only for the month of September.  The bundle comprises one roll (9.144m) of Certainly Celery 5/8" poly-twill ribbon, and one roll (9.144m) of So Saffron 5/8" grosgrain ribbon. The width of the ribbons is the same as the wider ribbon on my card above.

So Saffron co-ordinates with, and complements, so many colours and Designer Series Papers in our current Idea Book & Catalogue.  It is a beautiful, soft yellow (not quite as bright as in the amateur photograph of my card!).  Certainly Celery is, as you can see, also a lovely soft colour.

If you agree that these ribbons are "must-haves", please email me - I'd be happy to take your order!
