WSC52: Vintage SU!

wsc52-lcraig-061208.jpg

So, I adore all the little berry and floral Lockhart images that Sharon teases me with all the time, but I hadn’t had time to go through the agony of choosing and ordering yet. Then, my mom shows up with her 3rd (literally) load of stuff for a garage sale this weekend, and she has this adorable little Stampin’ Up! set from 1997 called Country Greetings.

I’m supposed to be purging, but I snatched it right up. It has a basket of berries, a cat, the quilt block and a few other things in the case. Of course, my mom isn’t an SU! purist, and there are some other stamps from other sets <gasp> mixed in the case. While I’m supposed to be clearing stuff out, I’ve decided that it’s ok….I can find a place to tuck this one little ole set.

This is for Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge, and I’m going to leave you to visit Beate, Cami, Jenn, Laurie, Mary Jo and Sharon for other inspirations while I peddle my old junk all in the name of new stamp room furniture. Have a great weekend!

  • Stamps: Country Greetings (SU! 1997), Polka Dot Scrapblock™, Pretty Pattern Backgrounder – both from Cornish Heritage Farms

  • Cardstock: Sunflower Medium, Spring Willow Medium, Desert Coral Light Prism

  • Ink: Espresso Adirondack

  • Accs: Ribbon – May Arts from Jacksonbelle, Copic Markers, Dew Drops

  2. That made me laugh. out. loud, reading that! Put it back on the table, girl!!!! It’s a sweet card, though – love those berries and the bitty bling and ribbons!

  3. LOL, yes this sweet image is quite Lockhart’ish, isn’t it?!! You are too funny! Love the berries in a bucket — really says summertime (I don’t blame you for snatching it up and keeping it!). I really like the little hello tag!

  9. I love what you’ve done with the sketch, Lori!! Pretty colors and I love your special touches!!

  10. Hope you have a super sale this weekend! It’s so hard to part with our old “friends”…I have been stamping for almost 5 years and this is the first year I ever let some things go. Storage is becoming a problem so I have to made room and earn a few bucks for new “buddies” to come and visit. There are some I just can’t let go but it is easier after the first time. My DD sold some of her’s also and we both traded for 2 sets. Now to sort out the rest of the house! Happy selling to you.
