Raisin Boat Friday Feature

Hi everyone!  We're all excited here at my house.  Tonight is opening night for recital.  Hollyanne is anxious and a bit nervous.  She and the other dancers looked great during rehearsals yesterday.

I have some exciting news to share with you all.  It was announced in the newsletter that I was selected to be a Boat Crewmember!  I am soooo thrilled to have been given this opportunity.  I shared here and there my enthusiasm for Raisin Boat.  I think their concept is fantastic - I love being able to rent stamps, stamp all I want with them for a month and then send them back for new ones!  Rubber stamps are so expensive and let's face it we all get tired of them.  Being able to rent stamps is a way to keep your stamping fresh, new and stay with the latest trends without investing a lot of money.

So I created a card to share with you featuring one of the sets I just received in the mailbox.  This is Central Park.

I created this card to play along with a few challenges, too.  Truly Scrumptious (Flower Power).  Sadly, this is their last challenge.  Sweet Sketch Wednesday (sketch).  ColourQ (Real Red, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Tempting Turquoise) the colors I used are from Raisin Boat and I think came really close.

If you've not checked out Raisin Boat yet, you really should.  Say hi to Kim and Bobbi!

Card stock:  Brighton Beach White, By the Bay, Sky View, Red Delicious
