Muse #244 with Kimberly


When I saw the car with the gifts stacked on top by Kimberly, I immediately thought of this stamp set. Gifts of the Season by PTI.  In fact, I made two of them cause I'm taking my oldest son out for his birthday tomorrow, which was last Saturday.
I used CP inks.

I am entering this in the Muse
Kimberly's card.

Color Throwdown #469

It's been a long time since I have entered a card in the CTD Challenge

I am happily stamping with my BFF who is up here for a quick one night trip.  Her daughter was coming up to Seattle to surprise a friend for her birthday and asked her mom if she would like to drive up with her.  So we are having a day of stamping.  So fun to have her with me even if for just one day.

PTI's Beautiful Berries Winter in CP colors and embossed with Silver EP.
Spring Rain pattern stripe paper.  The silver is much prettier and shiny in real life.
