Fussy & Fancy Challenge & Sweet Pea Stamps

The Fussy & Fancy current challenge is to "GO GREEN"... AND best of ALL...... You still have a week left to create and enter your project!
Lots and Lots of challenges going on right now requiring GREEN so what a great opportunity to Mix & Match or Combine. Fussy & Fancy is being sponsored by "SWEET PEA Stamps" who has offered to generously donate a $20 Gift Certificate to this week's challenge WNNER Wow is that image amazing or what? I LOVE the Cat's Eye!!!
The super funky paper was hand painted in Florence, Italy (wanna talk about HOARDING, that stuff is crazy expensive, not to mention it is just so spectacular that I cringed when I cut it!!! I suppose I could just hang it on the WALL to admire?) The other strip of paper along the lower portion is one of the very few items that I actually purchased while visiting the USA. I was WAY OVERWHELMED when I walked into a Michaels and pretty much satisfied my Urge to Splurge by just being in the presence of so much Temptation.
I'm thrilled that you decided to drop in and pay me a little visit today.
