I decided to make this cute card for My Craft Spot's Challenge #93 "Tags"
My Craft Spot is the first blog I followed when I started making cards and it is also the reason that I started my own blog.  I love MCS.
I used Paper Smooches' "Spiffy Scooter" stamp set for the scooter and the sentiment.

Big Brothers Card

One of my good friends just had a baby girl.  I made this card for her twin boys who are now big brothers!  I used Paper Smooches' Cutasaurus set and their matching dies (Dinos 1 & 2).  I sprayed the background with Mister Huey's Honeydew and Audrey sprays.  I popped up the little pink dino to make it look like she just burst from her egg.  It says "BIG BROS" on the inside.

Stamp Haul and Generosity

Hi all, I wanted to make a post about a few new goodies that I recently received.  First off it's Lawn Fawn.  I just love their stamps and lawn cuts.  They are so whimsical and JUST up my alley.  I'm also now a fan of their papers.  And do you know why?  Because they gave me 3 6"x6" sample papers from their Daphne's Closet collection with my order.  For free!  They are beautiful and a very nice quality.  Good and thick.  AND they are double-sided.  BONUS!!!!  On top of the 3 free papers, I was also given a free sentiment stamp that says "Many Thanks".  So cute.  OK LOVE this company.
These are the goodies that I actually paid for :D

The top three images are my new stamps sets (Summertime Charm, Flying By, and Say Cheese).  The next 2 images are my new Lawn Cuts die sets that coordinate with their stamps (Summertime Charm and Critters in the Forest).  

Next up, it's Sweet Stamp Shop.  Now, I ordered some of their stamps a few weeks ago and was going to write about this then, but forgot.  I ordered 3 of their sets, and they threw in a set of action wobbles for free.  I was NOT expecting that.  Well, their stamps are so cute and their customer service is so good, that I will continue to be a faithful customer of theirs.  In fact, I put in another order earlier this week.  This is what I have from a few weeks ago...

This is what I ordered a few days ago and can't wait to receive!

So, essentially, this post is a "love note" to these 2 companies who make excellent products and have excellent customer service and generosity.  "Many Thanks"  <3

I love their themes and they are so nice to play with.

I combined 2 wood-mounted stamps that I have, both from Michaels (jar and flowers).  I hand drew the stems and added tiny punched out leaves.  Those little buggers were tedious, but I like how they look
