Hi all!!! Here it is, Tuesday already - I swear time is just flying by! Soon it will be time for me to head East to see my son graduate - I cannot wait to see my boy! We have been busily making plans and wondering how we are going to fit everything in, lol! I am looking forward to spending time with family for 10 whole days...I could use some fun about now, lol!!!  Although I have been getting some stamping in......and sending out lots of thank you cards to the sweet people who have been sending me such nice happy mail! This is another card I sent out to a long distance friend - it definitely has the vintage look and feel that I love and have been really focusing on lately.  I used the Springtime Vintage patterned paper (I know, I know, it seems like that is all I use, lol) paired with the Silhouette Sentiments Hostess set - I just love those pretty flowers! I colored the images using my Old Olive and Rose Red stampin'write markers, then added some bling to the centers to make it pop! I also cut the Top Note die twice, embossing the Whisper White Top Note with the Finial Press embossing folder, then trimming it to nest inside a Rose Red Top Note.  I love the two toned effect - just makes the card have so much dimension!  I also used lots of layers behind the image piece using my 2 1/2 inch circle punch and my 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punch in both Old Olive and Rose Red card stock.  Then, I added some Old Olive Seam Binding ribbon - love, love, love it so it better not retire, lol!!! I like the way this one turned out, simple but pretty! I have been enjoying this type of stamping a lot lately - I seem to get more done, which makes me feel productive, heehee!! So, if you would like to have the items used here for your very own, you can order them in my online store or contact me and I will help you place your order.  And, if you LOVE that hostess set, why not have a workshop of your own so you can earn it for free??!! Contact me now and let's get you on the calendar - I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends :-)  Now, I am off to get my hair done and then get ready for my downline meeting tonight - I just love having my downline over, we have so much fun stamping together!! Want to join my team?  We would love to have you, so give me a call and we can get you started! I will be back tomorrow to share a fun project I am doing with my downline tonight so until then, happy stamping!!
