Hello there stamping friends! After a wee hiatus from Dynamic Duos, I'm finally back and ready to get to creating. This week, a HUGE box of brand spankin' new Stampin' Up goodies arrived on my doorstep, via the "man in brown". Whoot whoot! (Yes, I buy my UPS guy a Christmas gift. Don't you?) I am LOVING all of these new items that will be coming out in January. So exciting!
This week at Dynamic Duos is Monochromatic week and it pretty much goes without saying that this color combo is right up my alley. Pretty in Pink and Rose Red? Yes, please!
As soon as I saw the sketch over at Create with Connie and Mary, I knew I wanted to ink up the new Secret Garden stamp set. *sneak peek alert* This set also has coordinating dies. How awesome is THAT??
The center of the flower did not have a coordinating die though, so I embossed it and cut it out by hand. (Those of you who follow my blog, know how I LOVE "fussy cutting"...hee hee!) I added the embossed sentiment from the upcoming Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set and some bling to dress things up. See that hexagon embossing in the background? That is new, as well. I LOVE it!!
I sure hope you will join us this week at Dynamic Duos. The fabulous gals on the Design Team have created some awesome projects for inspiration. Please stop by and say hello to them, won't you?
Oh and before I go....I have BIG news to share. We made it official and finally adopted our sweet little Abby. We had to wait until she was old enough to be spayed before we could and the deed is done. She had her surgery Wednesday and first thing Thursday morning, I was at San Antonio Pets Alive, paperwork in hand. We just love this little girl and couldn't be happier that she found her fur-ever home with us! Welcome to the family, Princess Abby! :)
