Well this week we are preparing to say goodbye to this year's Sale-a-Bration! Boohoo!!! I loved this catalog so much!!!! So our challenge this week is to post using something we wish would continue into the Annual Catalog.  It was tough narrowing it down! Wow!

So hello hoppers from Helen's blog! Be sure to hop on to Miss Liz's when you are finished here! 

So here's my card:

Outside of card!
It was so hard to choose 1 item from the SAB catalog!!! But I must say my favorite has to be the Hey Chick stamp set. Those dang little hens/chicks whatever they are just crack me up!!!! Especially this guy! Not even sure what it is! lol But how cute!!! I love when he "peeks" through!!

Inside card!
This is just a simple card using. Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens, Decorative Label Punch, and a couple of other goodies made this fun card! Not too difficult.

So if only Hey Chick would be around forever! I do know that this one won't go into my sale stash! This will live with me forever! lol 

Happy Stampin'!

Hey all! Miss me?? Fresh of a 2-week family vacation to Hawaii! Then home to a blizzard! Ugh! Trying hard to get back on track! Just wanna be back on the beach tho! lol But anyway, I'm baaacckkkk!!!!

This week's card was stressful for me! lol You'll find out why below!
So hello again to hoppers from Helen's blog! I missed you!  When you head on to Lizzy's blog tell her I said hi!!!

Ok, so this week's challenge! We were to CASE (basically copy! lol) a card from the person behind us in this hop! Well clearly that's Helen! But I consider Helen one of my favorite card makers! I have always loved her designs! She is clean & simple for the most part, but really creative! She knows how to really feature a stamp set!

Here's what I came up with (be gentle!):

So I went with one of her ore simple designs, because I felt I could do it justice! lol  This is a "copy" of her card from Wednesday, March 1. Check out her blog to see it!

I didn't have the Avant Garden stamp set, so I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set. It's similar. It's a nice 1-layer card.  

Now Helen used some Silver Card Stock to matte the main art image.  I didn't have any Silver handy, so I used Smoky Slate.  I also added a piece of Succulent Garden Sweet Sugarplum 1/8" Ribbon for a "pop"  Hers didn't need it. But I think mine did. I did finish it off with a bit of Wink of Stella, but I have a hard time getting it to show in a photo! Trust me-it's there! lol

Either way, it's a pretty birthday card. Thanx Helen for the idea, and the beautiful work you do!!!

Happy Stampin'!
