I apologize for my absence. Did you know that August is half over??? Me neither!!! I have so much on my summer bucket list that can’t possibly be done in 2 weeks.
Before I get to the sample today, I wanted to remind you that there is a GREAT deal going on for Big Shots and Big Shot accessories (should you already have one). Check it out here. Not only that–if you live in Massachusetts, it is tax-free weekend this weekend. (“LLLAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! ” –that is the sound of the tax-free angels singing! They only sing once a year so don’t miss out!) NOW–pair the tax free weekend with the Big Shot deal and you have a MAJOR bargain you don’t want t miss out on. You can even shop from the beach or a BBQ–wherever your plans take you this weekend.–just click here.
Ah well—let me show you another card I did last week while playing with Flamingo Lingo. Who doesn’t love flamingos?? They are ridiculously goofy looking….and that is even before you consider the fact they are pink! Their color is just the icing on the cake! I heard once that they are pink because they eat a lot of shrimp. Could be—My nephew turned sort of orange when my sister was going through a carrot-mango (or whatever it was) baby food stage.
Good news–he is no longer orange-colored.
Better news—YOU don’t turn the color of what you eat!
Back to the flamingos:
And the inside:
The color was inspired—well, besides the fact that flamingos are pink–by the fun Confetti Celebration DSP. It is actually Strawberry Slush (so much for this flamingo eating shrimp—he was at the Smoothie Stand!). Worked out perfectly because Stampin’ Up! carries a thick baker’s twine in Strawberry Slush (among other colors!)!
