Happy mail day

Good evening, lovelies!
Today I received some PTI goodies, that I've been impatiently waiting for... yay!
I also got a wonderful JustRite stamp set, that I won by participating in the Dare To Get Dirty challenges at SCS, and yesterday came some lovely stuff from a local scrapbooking store, that I'll be previewing in September. Tomorrow I'm going to Paperific with my crafty pal Sue Kohler and her friend, and we're sure to stock up on some yumminess - not to mention having heaps of fun! Lastly, there are some incredible news, that I'll be sharing with you very soon!

*happy sigh*

So, would you like to see some new stuff? One of the PTI stamps sets that I received today, is Butterfly Dreams. I have seen it being used so many times in some amazing creations (take Niki Estes, for example, who's the artist behind this set), that as soon as I had it in my hands, you know I absolutely had to ink it up...


Supplies: cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Spring Moss), American Crafts; stamps: Papertrey Ink (Butterfly Dreams, Turning A New Leaf); ink: Hero Arts (Soft Leaf); StazOn (Jet Black), Versa Color (White); Twinkling H2O's (purple); sewing machine; EZCut embossing folder (Polka Dots)

Did you notice how nicely the butterflies shimmer? It's Twinkling H2O's - great stuff, that I discovered very recently.

This card was created with Embellish Squares Color Challenge. It's another great one, and I love the prize!


I found a perfect sketch to accompany it - CCEE1034:


Lastly, I thought that since I'm celebrating the fact that I incorporated new PTI stuff (including never used before cardstock), I embossed the squares with polka dot pattern, to suit the Passion For Papertey's Polka Dots challenge. Hehe...

Ok, I better hit the bed now, to be ready for some fun tomorrow morning! Happy TGIF! xxx
