Big Pieces & Little Pieces...another goodbye!


Happy Sunday! Here are more retiring sets for you: Big Pieces & Little Pieces. Sigh. I bought Big Pieces back when it first came out in a mini catalog, and I believe this is the first time I actually used it. Sigh. Now that I've made this card, however, I can see using it for scrapbook pages. (I know, I know, I do SO many of those!)


This card design is from the April Stampin' Success (a SU magazine for demonstrators). It's a perfect sketch if you want to work with circles. It also worked out well for this week's Splitcoast Limited Supply Challenge #174: Brads are not the Pits, where you have to incorporate brads into your design...they cannot be just an accent, AND...this is the kicker...NO ribbon or any other kind of accessories! Ack! No ribbon! Inconceivable!

Also, a quick toot...can't believe I won Card of the Week over at 2 Sketches 4 You! How cool is that! There is some amazing talent over there, be sure and check out all of the cards!

Thanks for stopping by! Have you stamped something today?

Recipe
Stamps: Big Pieces, Little Pieces.
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Summer Picnic DSP.
Ink: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive.
Accessories: Circle Punches (3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8"), Brads, SAB Rub-Ons.
