Before everything happened with my Father in law, I won a great prize from My Favorite Things Stamps. I commented on Debbie Olson's blog and won a $100 gift certificate, WOW!!! I think my heart actual skipped a beat when I found out. Since I knew I would be heading to Michigan at any time I decided to wait until after I got back to place my order and I received it just in time to make a card for my girlfriend who is turning 60, I gave it to her last night and she just loved it.
I stamped the balloon twice and cut out one to pop it up off the page, with my MISTI I was able to line up the string on the balloon perfectly in her hand, I also stamped and cut out the hat and added that but didn't pop it up. I gave her some polka dots to her dress by using my blender pen to take away some of the orange in her dress.
My Favorite of all is the die that cuts out a window to add your sentiment behind, isn't that neat. I was so excited to see that the Happy Birthday fit in there perfectly :)
Here is the card laying down so you can see the sentiment through the window a little easier.
My Favorite things-- Cupcake day stamp set, colored with markers, Die-namics -- Word window die and Label Maker sentiments stamp set
Memory Box -- Stitched Rectangle Layers die
Lilybeedesign-- Head over heels
I thought I would share a picture of the goodies I picked out from My favorite things win! Don't they do such pretty packaging!
As you can see I have a few more fun things to play with :)
We have had rain again all day yesterday and today as well, the ditch behind our house is rising once again but so far it is staying out of our yard. The amount of road closures are just crazy, and major highways too, but there is hope insight, after it finishes raining, hopefully by tomorrow morning we will see no rain for the next 5 days!!!!! I hope that gives enough time for all of this to calm down.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
