OHHH My GOODNESS!!!

Hello everyone! I am SO EXCITED!!

OK, so I participated in a sketch challenge over at Card Patterns. This was a week ago, I guess. That challenge was sponsored by Unity Stamps and I really wanted to win the set they were giving as a prize, but they also pictured their June Kit of the Month and I thought, wow, that's cool. $24 for a set of stamps and get set free. So I ordered and well it arrived yesterday....


OBVIOUSLY I didn't pay attention to the description. When I opened this package, I was completely blown away!! I had no idea that I'd be receiving all these great stamps and they're huge! I expected an itty bitty set and I got THIS! Wahoo!!! This is fantastic! And I am faced with storage dilemma.

So we had a bit of time before going to rehearsals last night, so I snuck in some play time. I went with a favorite color combo of mine. I am sending this to a friend of mine who needs a little pink pick-me-up!


I also used a great sketch from Crafts 4 Eternity that they are featuring this week. I love this. I really wish I had had some natural daylight to photograph this card because this picture is seriously lacking the way cuteness to this. I'm mailing it off tomorrow, but will perhaps make another one.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll not be around for a while now. Auto-post is ready to go for Saturday's challenge for Modern Sugar Blvd. I love that feature! Tonight is dress rehearsal, Friday night is the first show and Saturday holds two shows... AND my sisters and brother-in-law are driving all the way from Denver (1600 miles) to see the recital. My sister-in-law will be here, too, with her 3 boys, so it'll be busy around here to say the least!
