Hi Card

I love playing with new product. Do you want to know why? There is just something so inspiring when new patterns and colors are explored. I have collections in my stash that will be long time favorites. That is for sure. But it's so nice to get something fresh! Such is the case with the Neopolitan Bean Bisque collection from Jillibean Soup.

Yeah... okay... okay... it's not NEW, new... but it is to me! I've had the package in my cupboard but refused to open it until I depleted some of the papers already opened. It was so hard! And it got to a point where I was so tired of what I had... I finally broke my own rule and opened up the package. I don't regret it for a minute.

Here is the card I created:

One of my favorite things to do is to take the journal spots, that come on a 12x12 paper, and cut them out. They are so perfect for being another layer on my cards; most of the time to showcase the sentiment. At first, I had used blue bakers twine, then gray but really like the pop of red!

Thanks for swinging by today! Have you ever been successful in holding off, opening up new product? I don't know that I'll try again. It was too painful. LOL
