Isn't She Sweet!!

I have to say that there is nothing better than getting some goodies in the mail to brighten your day!! I received my very first order from Sweet n Sassy stamps today, and I am super excited about it. For the past couple of days I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how I ended up at their website in the first place, but I am so happy I did. I ordered some super cute StampAvie(Lily and Milo) sets, pre-ordered some Sarah Kay stamps, and got a bunch of dew drops and Cosmo Cricket paper. I was super excited too when I opened up my package and there was a free stamp set!! I honestly didn't even know that I was getting one free and super excited that I did!! This card was made using some of my new Robins Nest Hydrangea dew drops and one of the free stamped images that they sent with my order( super smart of them, because now I totally need this stamp)!! This card is also for the Great Swaps Girls challenge for this week to make a card using a layout from the Occasions Mini Catalog(the best one we ever had in my opinion). I chose a card from page 18 and added one layer, but kept the same layout. The base is Not Quite Navy and I put some of my rub ons that I got during Sellabration on it. I colored my image with my SU markers and layered it with some Two Scoops paper by Basic Gray. Then I added some dew drops in place of the flowers and put a clip with ribbon on it in the corner. Isn't she cute!! I start my new job at the Post Office tomorrow, so wish me luck!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Going Places

Today's ways to use it challenge was to make a card that has something to do with packing. It could be something using packing materials, or a travel themed card. I decided to use my My favorite Things set, Going Places. I stamped the girl on watercolor paper and colored her in with my SU markers, ink pads, and aqua painter. I found this super old SU paper in my stash and decided it would work perfect with the image. The hardware is from the Aged Copper hardware and the ribbon is from the SU Twill Tape(it was sponged to change it's color). I sponged all the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. I am not too enthused(I like it, I just don't feel good I think) about this card, but it is made, and I am posting it!! I have a monster headache today, so I am going back to the couch as soon as I am done posting this!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
