Festive Sunday

I completely forgot about Festive Friday this past week!!! If you are new to my blog- I am posting a Christmas project every Friday. So I am having a Festive Sunday!!! Today's card was super simple (which is very important if you plan to reproduce a lot of one card) and it uses one of the new in-colors- Baja Breeze. You will be able to order this color and so many more new stamps and accessories starting tomorrow!!

To make the blue background- I just took my Baja Breeze ink pad and placed it on the Whisper White cardstock. I gave it a little bit on a push. It doesn't cover perfectly- like a brayer would- but I like the effect. I also dyed the White Taffeta Ribbon by rubbing it in my ink pad with a sponge dauber. Then I dyed a little piece with a Black marker as well. Just keep in mind that it will take quite a while for this ribbon to completely dry. You can heat set it but be very careful not to heat for too long as the ribbon will burn.

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Basic Black
Other: White Taffeta Ribbon, Black Marker

Now you want to hear my exciting news?!! I got a new camera!!!! Mine has been broken for the past month (no zoom). So my hubby and I have been shopping around trying to find a camera that would best meet our needs. I wanted one that had a quick turn around between pictures. And I wanted to be able to take good indoor pictures. So we decided on a Canon Rebel! At first I was a little intimidated by the size of the camera. But then I started taking pictures, and it was LOVE!!!! Just check out this picture that my hubby took of Laynee! It has not been edited at all and it was taken inside with very little light!

Love it!!!!! I am roaming around the house taking pictures of everything I can find!
