Grace's Little Note - Kennedy Grace Creations


Hope all is well with you and thanks for popping by.
I made today's card with one of the new release stamps at Kennedy Grace Creations using the Grace's Little Note set.  The sentiment is included in the set and the sequins are also Kennedy Grace and this mix is Spring Lilacs.  I love Michelle's sequin mixes and this one is a mix of soft mauve, cream, clear sequins and some pretty little seed beads. 
This will be my last post as a DT member for Kennedy Grace Creations and I'd like to thank the lovely Michelle and rest of the team for having me.  I would gladly stay on but we've had some unexpected events of late and my time over the next couple months is going to be spent moving and packing.  Yep, you read that right... we sold our place (that was a big surprise) and after a long house hunt have found another so will be moving.  Exciting stuff... we've lived on the farm for years and years and are now going to be city mice.
For the background, I lightly spattered the cardstock with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage distress ink.  The circles were cut with Gina Marie's X Stitched Circles.  If you haven't tried these dies, give them a go... they cut beautifully and are so reasonably priced.  You get 8 dies in the set for a mere $10.  She also has very affordable shipping.
I'd also like to tell you about a challenge over at Paper Garden.  You can enter the challenge which is a Mother's Day theme and visitors can vote on the entries.  I was sent some free samples of paper from Paper Garden and I am very impressed with the quality of it.  There's one series of card stock I am anxious to try - it is a shimmery, pearlized piece and is so pretty and will add a soft and classy bit of pizazz to project pieces. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

One gorgeous card after the next! I do not know how you do it, and CAS too- which I find so dang hard! I love the inlaid look of the dies and the gorgeous flower!
I sure hope moving goes as well as it can- my in-laws moved from the country into the city- it was nice for them to walk and see so many townspeople so closely- hope you will enjoy it as well!
