LSC182 plus Sneak Preview Day #3


Hello and happy TGIF!!!!

What a crazy morning it was for us/me.... I dropped of my baby girl at Preschool, Luke (our 3 months old Boxer) - BTW he has gained 16 pounds since we have him....he is gonna be huge - LOL!!!
Then I came home - worked on my card, tried to post it... - all of a sudden we had *Tornado* warnings.

Had to log off for a while to see what was going on and if I had to take shelter....- thank goodness the bad weather moved fairly quickly!!! We still have pockets of bad weather coming....thanks to tropical storm *FAY*!!!

So I'm gonna make this fast!!! I have made this card for the LSC182 - Oldies But Goodies!!! For my card I have used the *Botanical Garden* Set as my *Oldie* and inked it with Riding Hood Red. Then I have layered it onto Whisper White and Riding Hood Red CS. This panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the retired *It's Your Birthday* Set and it was also inked in Riding Hood Red. I have added some medium Silver Brads and the fab *new* Riding Hood Red Ribbon!!!


I have made this card for the *Sneak Peek* Preview
for *Little Paper Shop* I have used this Set called *Peace* - it's super cute!!! As you can tell from the SCS gallery - tree images are really *IN* right now!!! All new Stamp Set's will be available August, 26th!!!

I have stamped my main image with Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie - fabulous *Fall* colors!!! I have layered the image with Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip CS and raised this panel with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from the same Set and I have inked it in Chocolate Chip plus I have pierced right below it. The Ribbon is from Micheal's and it matches the Old Olive color perfectly. Next I have added three medium Copper Brads.

******************************************
Here is some more great news - *Jessica Knutsen* - is featuring the last day of *PREORDER* for her gorgeous new Stamp Sets for a discounted Price!!! That's right - if you want to own these beauties you better hurry over there!!!! Plus today she is revealing her new Designer Team!!!

Before you run over there - let me know what you think of my cards - LOL!!!!

Since it's a rainy day today.......I think I'll stamp some more!!! If you like come back later to see what else I have created?!?
