Inky Friends: Time to Sale-a-Brate!: Party Pandas

No automatic alt text available.

It's time for another Inky Friends blog hop! My favorite time of the month and Sale-a-bration is my favorite time of the Stampin' Up! year. Who can argue with that! You get free goodies, what more could a girl want?

Check out all the inspiration that My Inky Friends are sharing with you this weekend. As normal, we are all linked together in a full circle. Whether you are going forward and was just on Yapha's blog where she highlighted the  Bubbles and Fizz DSP, or you are hopping backwards and was just at Cindy's blog with Amazing You, you will see all the terrific projects made with the free goodies you can earn during Sale-a-bration.

Now, on to my creations. I picked Party Pandas for my stamp set. These pandas are just so cute and sweet, they are hard to resist. You might notice the envelope in the background of my pictures. I had gotten out of the habit of stamping on the envelopes and on the inside of the cards. I am working on doing that again. To remind you that it's fun to have a sneak peek at what's inside, I took my pictures with the edge of the envelope peeking out.

Card number one could be mailed to anyone on your birthday list. Gotta love a card that covers men, women and children!

Card number 2 is a card to mail whenever. I have been challenging myself to mail more cards and just say HI when I am thinking of someone. This card will be in the mail soon to brighten someone's day.

The last card I am sure one of girls is going to swipe for her friend's birthday coming up. Her friend is in love with pandas! I'm sure it won't be in my stash for very long.

I also created a set of scrapbook pages. Keeping memories alive has become very important to me. My oldest daughter was married this past fall and my second daughter is headed to college 5 hours away this coming fall. I'm struggling with the changes in my family. Keeping those memories alive has become very important to me!

Did you notice the panda doing a cartwheel? 

Now you are off to see Cindy if you are hopping forward or Holly if going backward! Please feel free to leave comments about my projects. I love seeing what you think of them! Monday I will have close ups of the scrap pages so make sure you come back and see them!

Happy Stampin'!

Such a great set of projects. My fav is your panda bear bday card and how the emboss folder you used makes it really more special. Thanks for sharing another scrapbook page layout with us! Wohoo!

Super cute pandas, Shelley, and I love what you did with them! The color blocking really shows off the black and white pandas!
