Time for You

What a cute set this is, from the Summer Mini. For those wanting to try their hand at watercolouring, this set is a great place to start because the sections you need to colour are nice and small, so you don't have to worry too much about shading.
This card looks a lot better in real life...the ribbon looks all wonky in the photo, and there is actually some white showing on the other side of the ribbon, which the photo angle hides. It's such a lovely crisp colour combo, which the photo doesn't do justice either! Soft Sky, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip...very stylish.
I used one of the carousel notes from the Mini...actually I used half! I'll show you the card I made with the other half tomorrow. These are so much more than just a scalloped note card. They are a great size for making all sorts of projects out of. They come in 3 of the In Colors, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi. You get 4 of each color in the pack. They come with yummy matching square envelopes in Chocolate Chip. These notecards are big - just over 15cm in diameter.
I and used my trimmer to cut the Carousel Note in half, and then stamped it with the Polka Dot background in Chocolate Chip ink.
