EXCITING NEWS

NEIGHBOR, FRIEND, STAMP DESIGNER
AND
A REALLY BIG DEAL

NINA BRACKETT
OF
"CRAFTING IN CROATIA"

INVITED ME to DESIGN with her Brand New Stamp Set "VINTAGE BACKGROUNDS" which was Released by GINA K Designs last week. Now before you go running off to NINA's BLOG where I AM BEING FEATURED, wanna see what I created:

Is that Hounds Tooth not PERFECT paired with this old man from "You Know Your Old When" which is an older Gina K stamp set. Now LOOK CLOSER so you can see that I used another one of the New Stamps to stamp his Party Hat and his Tie! Isn't he Funny:
I just got plain carried away and decided to keep stamping so here are a couple shots off the inside and one of the other "VINTAGE BACKGROUND" stamps:


Help I'm Stamping and I can't STOP so I carried my theme on over to the envelope:

CHALLENGES:
DON'T FORGET about Nina's Challenge ends at Midnight tonight 4/29
Mo's Challenge #29: Masculine Card (so excited to get to participate this week)
2 Sketches 4 You: Sketch (I wasn't sure if the signature was part of the sketch so I added the label in place of Kazan's Signature)
Cute Card Thursday: Make your Own (Perfect!! I Made my own Patterned paper using the hounds tooth stamp!!)
Crafty Creations: Make your Own Backgrounds (SCORE Again)
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Vintage (nothing more vintage than an Old Man)

Love this card .....you totally rocked it. Have fun creating with NINA's stamps..I love them... just have to win a lottery to get all..lol.
Funny thing ..you know I have that saying in a frame on my craft table..and my daughters giggle all the time..due to LUPUS and RA I always say this hurts that hurts, the day I won't say anything my 8 yrs old comes upto me and say MOM is everything working fine..lol.
Thats my fave sentiment.
