STAMP SOMETHING - FLOWERS AND SHOWERS SOMETHING

Hi all - WOW! am I glad it's Friday....what a week!! I am exhausted from all the running around and such as I am still recovering from my sinus infection....I am looking forward to sleeping in a bit tomorrow :-) So, it's time for another Stamp Something Challenge and this week the theme is Flowers and Showers! The stamp company Penguin Pants is sponsoring this week - they have clear stamps and will be sending one lucky winner some goodies!! So, make sure you play along! I decided to go with the Flowers part of the stamp set, and used my dsp to have lots of flowers in my design. I also used my A Little Birdie set....I love it and haven't pulled it out in awhile! I also used a color I don't use very often at all...I am not a purple gal, but it goes soooo well with this dp that I had to make an exception, lol! I paper pieced my little birdie with the dp as well, very fun!! Make sure you head on over to the Stamp Something site so you can see the marvelous eye candy the other DT gals have provided! And, let's see what you can do....upload your take on this challenge to the site by next Thursday and get entered in the drawing for FREE goodies, whoohooo!!! And, if you want to see some FABULOUS blogs, all the DT members for Stamp Something are listed in my sidebar....go give them some love, you know how much we ALL love people to stop by!!! Now, I will leave you with the recipe as I am going to be cutting kits for tomorrow's scrapbook class and hopefully doing a little bit of shopping before Tony comes home, yippee!! I was pretty cranky last night when he called, so I have to make it up to him when he gets home and be extra nice *wink* Have a GREAT weekend and check back tomorrow for a fun scrapbook project I have to share!
