Thanks . . . I Needed That ! ! !

This card is me tonight. I finally took some much needed time for myself so I could stamp. I got to break out my new Stampin' Up! stamp sets . . . that were still sitting in their UPS box from two weeks ago just calling out my name . . . and finally put some ink on 'em!!!

I made this card using the brand new Fun & Fast Notes set. When the new catalog first came out, I didn't put it on my wish list because it was kind of expensive, but you get eight darling stamps, each with their own little words. It has Christmas, birthday, get well, congratulations, new baby, wedding, and two thank you stamps. I can see myself using all eight of the stamps which is nice. I hate to buy a whole set just for one or two stamps. I'm really glad I decided to get it.

The base of the care is made with Bazill paper and the designer paper is Cosmo Cricket's "Dutch Girl" line. I paper pieced my bird and flower with the paper and sponged Soft Sky ink around the circle. I used my Marvy Giga Scalloped Circle punch and put Cloud 9 Rain Dots on all the scallops and the corners of the card. I don't remember where I got the red ribbon, but I do like the wider 5/8" width.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everybody is having a good week. Don't forget blog candy will be posted sometime tomorrow for reaching 5,000 hits, and another Friday Card Giveaway.

Your card is sooooo pretty! I know what you mean when you say, you have to just take the time to stamp. I am babysitting almost daily for my daughter and my time is getting used up fast. I hope to get some time maybe tomorrow. Again...your card is gorgeous!

I love this card! Its beautiful!

I wanted to post this on the blog candy post but didn't as I don't want to be in the drawing. Can't use a Archievs gift card in Norway. But I wanted to say I enjoy reading your blog and seeing all the cool things you make. Its an inspiration. I don't have a camera or scanner nor can I affoard one and I am new to card making so my blog won't contain any cards for a long while. But I enjoy learning to make them just the same. Still saving up to buy stuff to use and its so cool to see on the blog what is possible. Love the ones you make:)

I'm in love with this Cosmo Cricket paper. I have some but haven't had a chance to make a card with it yet. I love this card; the little bird is so cute. I think this stamp set might need to make it to my list too. Thanks for sharing.

What an awesome card. I've been really impressed with the new SU catalog. The past couple of years I haven't bought much of anything but I'm really liking a lot of the redesign.
