First Card With Nesties

WOO HOO! A scrapbook store out in Langley had a 40% off any line coupon this week and I was thinking of going. Well, then a email came through about them having nesties back in stock. So, I thought... hey I could use the 40% off for the nesties line. Worked out to be $18.00 ea. Better then any price I had found online and minus the $10 - $20 in shpg that would have been added on as well. My enabler Melissa
talked me into buying too many of them. It's all her fault I say. I got the Lg petite scallop circles, lg circles, scalloped ovals, lg ovals, Lg square scallops and the long classic scallop rectangle lg ones. Melissa said I could pick out 3 for my Birthday coming up in July. She's too kind! I can't let her buy me that much stuff. I'll have to tell my Dad that I'd like cash for my Birthday and put it to all of these. Good thing the carbon tax dividend cheques came on the same day. Gee, thanks government for that.. it costs us that a month more in gas... x 12 month. I finally pulled out my stamp a ma jig to get the True friend stamp centered in the smaller scallop. I had to do it a few times to get it close. I folded a piece of chocolate chip paper in half and had two scallops showing when putting through the cuttlebug to keep the cardstock attached to make it into a card that opens up. I then put a smaller soft sky scalloped circle inside to write on. Added some versamark pen to the stamped image and then dipped it into irridescent ice and embossed. Melissa gave me the ribbon. Matches perfectly with the soft sky. I hope I love the new blues as much as the last.
I have blabbed on too long. Have a great weekend! I'll be having fun fun fun at Melissa's tomorrow night playing with our new nesties. I can't wait to see what she comes up with!

OMG! This is amazing!?! I am so glad I enabled you. I'm just kickin myself for not getting the circles.

How cool that you used the folded card and those circles with those colours are totally drool worthy. I love the way you used the ribbon and that stamp looks like a million bucks! I can't wait to play play play!

OK I'm back, Nesties are so wonderful! I too went on a very large bing. Scrapfest was in Kitchener in April and one booth was selling them for $20. Not quite as good a deal as you get but good never the less. Today I was at Stamping Bella and got double ended tags. They're going to be put to good use for sentiments. Can't wait.
