A Day Off......


Good Afternoon Everyone!
Geez it feels great to be home & to actually have time to PLAY with my new goodies that have been sitting in a corner since the beginning of last month!!!!  I hope you all had a Wonderful Holiday Season & that you have a Blessed New Year!  My Holiday was busy as usual but this month will truly be special.....special in how busy I'll be!  My work schedule for January has me off every Monday & I'm working all the other days except for one Saturday that I requested off to get my hair done!  I will do my best to have something that I make posted here but if I skip a day or so; you'll know why!!

My card for today is featuring some of the new goodies that will be available starting tomorrow!  I had to buy Valentine things because that's such a cute Holiday to me!!  The new Epoxy Brads are very nice to work with, the Sending Love Specialty paper is totally gorgeous will all the sparkle & added bling bling!!!  I can't say enough about all the new Satin Ribbon in the Occasions Mini---BEAUTIFUL---and the Love Bandit Clear Mount set is just toooo CUTE!!  Did you notice the border around my DSP?  That's the new Pinking Hearts Border punch!  I LOVE that thing right along with the new Small Heart Punch.....I have the matching stamp set for that too but you'll see that later LOL!!! 

I had a LOT of fun coloring these images & cutting out my lil' squirrel friend.  I think he looks totally adorable standing in front of that tree holding those flowers....kind of melts your heart hugh?  Just kidding but I do sincerely hope that you enjoy my sample for today & stay tuned for more!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!
TTFN,
Hugs,

Supplies:
Love Bandit ss; Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Real Red & Very Vanilla cs; Chocolate Chip ink; Sending Love Specialty DSP; Real Red Satin Ribbon; Real Red Epoxy Brads; Small Heart, Word Window, Modern Label & Pinking Hearts Border Punch; SU! Markers

  15. Super cute! I hate when life/work, etc. get in the way of stamping. I have so many stamps that I *need* to play with and just not enough hours in the day/energy to play with them all! (((HUGS)))
