Crafting in Paradise

Looking outside today, it's hard to believe that just a week or so ago it was snowy and cold here in the Dallas area.  Having just come back from a cruise with the Denton County Aggie Moms, I was not happy to be stuck indoors wearing layer upon layer of clothes to keep warm.  Now it is warm, and I want to be outside, soaking up some sun!  So for all of you who are still deep in the throes of winter, who are aching for some sun and tired of all the snow, here's a little something to help take your mind off needing another layer of socks....

Picture this, a warm Caribbean breeze is gently blowing through your hair, the warm sun kisses your skin while the tide licks your toes and keeps you cool.  A fruity drink with a pretty little umbrella is in your right hand, and your left hand just found your favorite song on your iPod.  

Hours later, after a delicious meal, you head to the Conference Center, where you and your friends can while away the hours working on your scrapbooks, cards, or other crafty projects.  Everyone is having a great time, learning new skills, creating beautiful things, and enjoying each other's company.

You get to do this for SEVEN DAYS.  No dishes, no laundry, no work...just you, your crafts, your friends, some fun workshops, and a cruise ship full of more fun and activities that you could ever imagine -- and it's all included in one very low price! 

Sounds like heaven, right?  Well it can all be yours for the very low starting rate of just $741, which includes 7 nights accommodations, meals, workshops, 24-hour access to our crop room, plus lots of goodies, gifts, prizes, and more.  Payment plans are available, and your deposit of $250 will hold your spot. 

But hurry!  These rates are only available through May 29, 2015, and once our allotment of cabins is filled, new bookings will be at the current market rate.

Today's card is a fun one I made a while back when I hosted a "Cruise Week" open house.  I listed the supplies used below.  This was a really simple card, and I had a lot of fun making it.  It features several layers, with the stamp and "You're Invited" popped up over the embossed piece.  Here is a picture of the card face before I embossed the background and added the stamp and sentiment:

It looks a little plain without the embossing, don't you think?

Supplies:  Stampin' Up Very Vanilla card stock, "Oh, Hello" stamp set, "Square Lattice" embossing folder, Baked Brown Sugar, Costal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush inks.  Close to My Heart "Post Card - Travel Series" stamp set.
