Stamps Make me Happy!
Here is what I am stamping today. Hopefully these will come out in order,
The first is: “Glad to Bee your friend”, This is a cute house mouse stamp. Even though the scan does not show it, th wings are covered in crystal lacquer and sprinkled with glitter. I loved coloring and layering this image. With today being Valentine’s Day, I couldnj’t resist doing something sweet.
I spent some time today on two cards I will be submitting to “Just Cards” magazine they both use stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Check them out on the web.
Here is the first card. The scan does not do the colors or the glitter justice, I love the simple form this one took. As many of you know, I am on the design team for Sparkle and Sprinkle and love it!
