thanks...


I know...I pulled out my PTI goodness for this card...you've got the right blog {wink}


This is not typically my color combo eh, pastels....

That my friends, is why I love a good challenge:



The challenge is to use pastels with black.  I love to heat emboss with black..makes for a crisp outline.   Can you believe it, this card is pure stamping...no patterned paper!  I topped off the card with a SRM sticker and some twine from The Twinery.

I was inspired by the latest CPS sketch:


I haven't played over there in a very long time...

I gotta share my latest 'go-to' product...


Seriously, every stamper NEEDS a pink stamping block!  It's the perfect size, 3" x 4", and my go-to block with all my unmounted stamps!!!

check it out at ivyPINK's etsy shop!
