Water Color Wine

Ever get a stamp set that you just can't wait to ink up?
That happened to me yesterday.
 I am in love with this set and the sentiment makes me 
I tried my hand at a few colors.
I think I like the purples best.
Either Way...I'm pleased with these cards.
And just wanted to share.
You can find the stamp set over at Sweet Stamps.
It's called Wine!
and it's on sale right now..
Have a happy day...

Can you think of anything greener than Christmas holly?
I heat embossed the leaves, fussy cut one holly cluster and popped it up with 3D adhesive.
Then added the pearls for the berries.

I say that reluctantly because my weekend went by WAY too fast.
I did have some creative time this weekend, for which I'm always grateful.
This AWESOME stamp arrived on Friday.
It's a Stamp of the Week and it's from Unity Stamp Company.
The stamp is called Shrooms and it's by Lisa Arana.
LOVE the sentiment and the fun 'shrooms.

Just for You

Hello and Happy Thursday!

Today I'm up on the Linnie Blooms Design Team Blog.

Our challenge this month was to create something patriotic.
I didn't want to do another flag project so I just went with 
Red, White and Blues
I distressed and embellished a luggage tag.
Tags always come in handy, right?!
This would also be great added to a card, don't you think?
You can find this versatile luggage tag along with the feather stencil/mask 
you see on the background in the Linnie Blooms Shop.

That pretty"Just for You" sentiment is from a set called Simply Said

While I have you here today I just want to take a quick moment to 
say that today is my last post as DT member for Linnie Blooms.

Here are a few of my favorite creations using Linnie Blooms products. 
Imagine Dream Fly

Be Yourself 

A Wand and a Tiara

Thank You

I have had a fantastic time working with Linda and her marvelous products.
Thank you so very much for allowing me to part of your wonderfully talented design team.

'til next time...
