:D Are you having a good day?? I'm listening to O HAPPY DAY - there's no way to stay grumpy when that song's on. :D

Anyway. LOL! On to stamping business! Don't worry: I have NOT forgotten about the video I promised for the Top Note purse; I had technical difficulties last week, but I'm HOPING to do it this week. I've got everything READY; it's difficult to find time when it's QUIET enough in the house!! :D But I'm hoping the beginning of the week will have that one up for you! :)

I got a few new toys last week; you've already seen the FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL stamp at work, but here is the first card I did when I pulled it out of the box!

Some of you know that white, red, and black were our wedding colors - I've always liked the combination! :D Super-simple, clean lines, embossed - this card is ME. :D

Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red

Ink: White craft

Stamp set: Fifth Avenue Floral

Accessories: embossing buddy, white embossing powder, heat tool

:D See? There couldn't be much simpler - but I think it makes a grand statement. :)

Here's another new toy I got! :D

I just HAD to have this stamp set from the Occasions Mini; it's got this deer stamp, which I think looks like Bambi, and also a rabbit stamp that looks like Thumper. Even if we NEVER use them in class, I wanted it PERSONALLY. I hardly ever make decisions like that - but here I did. March was a VERY busy month, and I worked HARD - so decided a treat was in order. :D
I don't know if you can tell, but I took the white punch and ran the edge through some Encore gold metallic ink, then embossed it with gold powder. It makes a MESS if you're not careful, but I like it! :D
Card stocks: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Whisper White
Inks: Creamy Caramel, Really Rust Craft, Chocolate Chip and Garden Green Stampin' Write Markers, Encore Gold Metallic
Stamp sets: Forest Friends, Really Retro
Accessories: Embossing Buddy, heat tool, clear embossing powder, gold embossing powder, dimensionals
Ok, everyone, I'm off! :D I have a LOT of designing to get done - AUGH!!!!!!!!!!!! And church and errands tonight - oh, if I don't stop thinking about it and start working on it, I'm gonna go CRAZY. :D
Have a WONDERFUL day!!! And don't forget! TAKE THE TIME TO STAMP SOMETHING!!!!!!
