I recently won a new set of stamps from MFP by playing along with the Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge found here. This set hasn't been released yet, but it's called Planted with Love and all of you gardeners out there are going to LOVE it! I think I squealed when I opened the package and saw them :) The seed packet I used here was really fun to color and just what I needed to pick me up after a gloomy, rainy week! The DP is by Basic Grey and I used black, brown and green cardstock. Don't you just love that little crow?! There's also a larger crow image in this set, and just wait until you see all the fun stamps that are included!! I love that when you win in this challenge, you never know what stamp set you're going to receive as a prize, because it's an unreleased set! Surprises are the best!! Big thank-you ((hugs)) Faith!!
My best friend's sister will be celebrating her 50th birthday later on today with a surprise party, and this is the card I made for her. Purple is her favorite color, so of course I made this to please her! I used Concord Crush cardstock, embossing in silver and adding silver beads. I also used Spellbinders foliage dies for the leaves and branches, doingboth with embossed silver cardstock and white. I also used the MS fern punch. I added a dainty floral embossed CB panel for the border, and did the embossed silver numbers with my Quickutz. Of course the embossed background is my favorite ef Square Lattice by SU! That ef just goes with everything, and I'm surprised I haven't worn it out yet! LOL
The sun made an appearance here in PA today and I'm feeling better already! I think every bone in my body has been crying for the past week with all the damp weather! The surprise birthday party starts soon, so it's time for me to get this day started! Have a fabulous Saturday everyone and thanks for stopping by!
