Live it up

Don't forget about the chance to win Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Retro. Get the details here.

Well I just stumbled on this new company the other day called Stamps and Smiles. I think they have some cute images and I loved the sketches they had with their opening. I am going to try and participate with their weekly challenges as well, so you will see more of them from me in the weeks to come. I would love to have some of their stamps, but that darn budget gets in my way LOL! Just in case you were wondering about wether I am really a stampin up demo, I decided to do a stampin up only card. Here is the sketch SASSC4, the contest is over but the sketch is still fabulous!

Here is my take on the sketch

As you can see, I needed to flip my sketch over to make everything work for my image. I am loving this stamp set. Why do I always let my goodies sit for a few weeks before I crack into them? I am working hard on keeping up with actually using my stamps. Another goal of this blog is to help me send these cards out as well.

This card is going to my sister-in-law Amy. She is fabulous and she is now a brand new SU demo. Woot Woot!!! She is such a wonderful and creative soul. I have been blessed with a closer relationship with her over the past few years. She is such a treasure.

It's a good life!
