Can you believe it? Another post already! This is a card I have had in my head for a while, and finally sat down and put it together the other night. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out, though I'm not sure how well I like the Silhouette papers with the Tulip cardstock.

I tried adding a subtle background to the sentiment strip, stamping tone-on-tone with colonial white ink. It looked really cool while it was still wet, but once it dried overnight, the design had completely disappeared. Oh well!

From Me to You stamp set (from promo card kit)

Hip Hip Hooray

Now that it's the end of February, I'm finally getting around to posting my card sample made with the super cute Good Times stamp set that was this month's special! Figures, doesn't it?? A day late and a dollar short--HA!

The good news is that I have a few extras of this set, so if you missed out on the special this month, but still want the set, I can hook you up!! Just e-mail or give me a call. It is a B-sized set, so it is only $13.95!! You can see the complete set on my previous post (dated Feb. 4--have I really not posted again all month long?!?!?!?)
