Creating with my new goodies!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good Monday! Here in the US we celebrated Labor Day, my dear hubby grilled mouth-watering ribs and bacon wrapped pork tenderloins! Dear daughter and I made homemade potato salad, oh yeah, it was YUMMMYYYY:):) I even had time to create in my stamp room. This week my parents celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary, so I HAD to get time in my room to make them a card:):):)

I loved getting to play with some of my new goodies! I used the new paint found in the holiday mini, played with a new technique using the clear window sheets with our texture plate. That was fun, it came out really cool I think. After I ran the clear window sheet through the big shot with the top note bigz die, I ran it through again with the perfect details texture plate. I then rubbed some black stazon ink over the embossing to make it stand out! I will definitely be doing this again!!! Thanks for looking!

Of course it's not a project without some ribbon and bling! And the gorgeous hat pin is from the "pretties kit"!!! Love this kit, it has pearls and beads and flowers in it, so you can create your own hat pin. This tile was soooo very easy to make! What a fabulous gift to give!!!
