What a weekend! Friday night, the Lad and his girlfriend came to visit for the weekend. It was great to see them, even if it was for less than 48 hours! They got some home cooking - Beef, Tomato, and Acini di Pepe Soup and a Red Velvet cake with the best cream cheese frosting I ever made! It wasn't overly sweet and really complimented the cake. With it being her birthday on Tuesday, I decorated it with sprinkles and we lit 23 candles to celebrate. Sadly, we didn't get a picture before we cut into it. Then, on Saturday, they went to visit my parents while we did some quick birthday shopping, and we all went to Chapel Hilll's famous Mediterranean Deli for dinner. It was nice to see them both happy & healthy!
Once they left, it was time to pack up the car and head an hour away to Burlington, , for my monthly card club. As I was designing for club this month, I had depleted my own collection of sympathy cards. I had just received my new Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack from the second release of Sale-a-bration items and wanted to do something just a little less traditional. I presented this at my monthly card club yesterday. The ladies loved the color combination and how the glimmer paper really shines through the die cut.
The new Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack is just one of three new products being released tomorrow, February 21 for Sale-a-Bration. The pack includes 12 , 6" x 6" sheets: 4 each of 3 colors. 6" x 6".
