Hello!

Welcome to Day 4, the final day of the Fresh Squeezed Stamps January Release!


Today is

Subway Series:  Spring

I couldn't resist teaming up the Valentines Day one with the Chalkboard Technique!


The red/white gingham was totally inspired by the awesome Geri!  When I saw THIS card of hers, I pretty much gasped out loud.

The gingham is ala Simple Stories and those blooms...they are ultra vintage American Crafts clear stickers....I like that they look like a part of the gingham. 

I absolutely had to back the chalkboard panel with glitter paper...seriously lovin' my glitter paper.


Dontcha just love that subway texty goodness?

I even prettied up the interior...


I'm your basic lazy crafter and never do anything on the interior but when I saw that leftover panel, I thought, hey, I should actually use that scrap:)  The sentiment is from Monday's release, Punny Valentine.

Make sure you pop over to the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog, my card is being featured today along with some of my fab teamies.  The full reveal of today's set is posted along with a chance for you to win a set!  I'd love it if you'd pop over there!
