Always Tart & Tangy

I'm back! Wow what a busy day it has been cutting and mounting the stamps. I'm still not finished but my back is killing me. I guess if I sat at my work table I'd be okay, but no, I'm sitting on the floor so I can watch the soaps...lol
If you are one of the Wednesday night girls coming next week and don't want to see some cards we MAY make....STOP READING NOW ;)
This first card uses a couple of new sets. Tart & Tangy from the Occassions mini and Make It Count which is a hostess set. Isn't this new Summer Picnic DP yummy?!
I was actually short one sheet and called SU! this morning. They are sending me a new package first class mail....which I'm sure is slower than UPS...haha! Not that I am complaining! More paper...yah.
Stamp sets: Tart & Tangy, Make It Count
Cardstock: Real Red, Old Olive, WW and Summer Picnic DP
Inks: Real Red, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Striped Red Grosgrain, 1 3/8"Circle Punch, Scallop Punch, Dimensionals
I LOVED this bird from the moment I saw her in the catty. Everyone has made such beautiful cards with her too! I kept this one fairly simple so we could show her off!
Now Groovy Guava wasn't a colour I fancied very much but it's grown on me(with certain colours and DP)
Stamp Set: Always
Cardstock: Choc Chip, Groovy Guava, WW and Ginger Blossom DP
Ink: Groovy Guava, Choc Chip
Accessories: 1 1/4", 1 3/8"Circle Punches, Wide Choc Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Coluzzle
Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to finish cutting and mounting the stamps. After that it will be a task to get it all down to the basement and organize ;)
Hope to see you tomorrow!

These are great. I love that new DP too! I will definitely have to get me some of that. I have not bought any of the Groovy Guava myself, but I love it with the Chocolate Chip(my favorite color). I might have to try some out now. :0)
