ESAD Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

hello there, 
 Welcome to my blog for the blog hop. You may have come from Monique's Blog or just starting here. There are 25 blogs for you hop around to see a sample of what is coming for you this sale-a-bration time.
Yes I know I have been very remiss in not blogging since last Blog hop but here I am now with a few cards for you made with Sale-a-bration items. 


 This first card I have used part of the designer paper Sweet Sorbet,
I stamped the small flower from Banner Blast and punched it out with the Itty Bitty punch. I have used twine from the Sweet Sorbet accessory pack. The greeting is from Sassy Salutations.

Another card made using the DSP Sweet Sorbet. I also stamped the flowers from Petal Parade stamp set. It makes card making easy using the DSP as the main part of the card.


 I saw a card made with this cute little Alligator on so I decided to change it a little and show you here. I stamped the scalloped strip from Petal Parade and used another piece of the Sweet Sorbet DSP. The greeting is from the set See Ya later and fits well with the fun Alligator.I also used the embossing folder from the SAB brochure called Decorative Dots. Its a great one to have in your collection.

Another stamp set I like from the choices this year is You're Lovely. I used the strip of flowers and painted them using Raspberry Ripple. This stamp set coordinates with the Deco Labels framelits. 



 I got the idea for this card from Pinterest and just changed a couple of things. I even used some scraps from the Good as Gold card kit. The colour used here is Pool Party. 


 well I think I have shown you a good selection to whet your appetite for the wonderful items from this years sale-a-bration catalogue. Now its time to hop along to Paula's blog

Love the way you've punched the little flowers to add texture to the DSP in your first card - I use that punch a lot so I will have to look at incorporating some of those flowers into my Never-Ending Album. Love the colouring in your Raspberry Ripple Best Wishes card too, very striking!
