I’m Carole Anne and you are hopping around with the Global Stamping Friends and Happy May! I’ve been a Demonstrator for a little over two years and I LOVE love Stampin’ UP!  It’s a gorgeous day here in Northern California, not too hot and not too cold…perfect day with a nice breeze. I’m not a hot weather person and it sure gets hot here in the summer when I retreat to the coast or in my air conditioned studio. I still love living here, my kids were born here so it’s home to them. I’m originally from the east coast of Canada in the province of Nova Scotia. It’s beautiful there so add it to your bucket list. Cape Breton Island is a must see!

The Theme of this BLOG HOP is “Sorry You’re Leaving” and I’m sorry that the beautiful Falling in Love Designer Series Paper is leaving us. I loved it so I showcased it in my card today which is a fun fold. I used the gorgeous Beautiful You Stamp set which is continuing in the New Annual Catalog, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla Cardstock with Falling in Love Designer Series Paper (retiring so get it now!). You can substitute another Designer Series Paper and change the color of the cardstock, it’s a versatile design. All project items are listed at the bottom.

I hope that you like this card and if you want instructions, subscribe to my Newsletter and the instructions for this card will be up over the weekend. Thanks so much for visiting me in Northern California!
