Welcome! Today’s card, featuring the Tropical Chic bundle, incorporates lots of my favorites. First, off, it’s soft and sweet. Second, it’s a thank you card. I always need lots of those. Third, it’s quick and easy, but still has a WOW factor. Fourth, I created my own background by using the stamps in the sets. And last, but not least, I’m premiering a brand spankin’ new in-color, Purple Posy. LOVE IT!

The Tropical Chic bundle will carry over to the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. But, don’t wait until then to order it. Right now, you can enjoy a 10% discount. Once the new catalog launches, they are sold separately and you’ll loose the discount. And as you can see, the Tropical Chic set isn’t just for bold and rich colors. You can incorporate lots of different color palettes for alternate looks.

This Tropical Chic color combo is Purple Posy, Soft Sea Foam,Whisper White and So Saffron. I’m loving this fresh, soft look with this set.  You could put a batch of these together in now time at all.

The new Annual Catalog will launch June 4th. If you are a current customer, I will be mailing those out mid-May. The new in-colors, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray will launch at that time. They are all fabulous. I can’t wait to highlight each of the colors in future projects. If you aren’t currently working with a demonstrator, let me know. I’ld love to earn your business and get a catalog out to you.
