Thanks for Everything

thanksmaureenplut

Good morning!  Well, with report cards wrapped up this week, I had a lovely few hours of playtime in the studio yesterday :)  Perfect timing as I got some VERY happy mail this week from Stephanie, owner and illustrator, of Clearly Besotted Stamps.  There are some brand new stamps and dies in the Clearly Besotted store right now and lucky me gets all of them right away to play with.  Kind of a great gig, eh?  I went a little crazy using 4 stamp sets AND 2 different die sets.  Can you blame me?  I wanted to make a card for the Simon Stays Stamp and Show Challenge: By the Number.  I flipped through all my patterned paper and came to this fun stamp sheet, a perfect fun, but neutral background full of sweet little numbers.  How’s your Sunday going?  It’s the last day of the Canadian Men’s Curling Championship so you know where I’ll be… {wink, wink!}.  Thanks for stopping by!

Absolutely no plans for me today which equals perfection! Sounds like you have the perfect Sunday planned too! I love the sweet little patterns on the butterflies and the mix/match of patterns on the sentiment!

Great card Maureen, I love how you have mixed and matched the stamps x

Great card! I really need a good leaf die! I'm hoping to build my die collection tomorrow--we're heading across the border for a couple of days in upper state New York. I hear Buffalo stamps is the place to go for some great deals!! Ack--I'm so excited; I just have to figure out what to do with the DH and kiddos while I'm in my candy land for what will likely be a few hours--haha!!
