New Stuff!!

Happy Friday!! I got some new stuff yesterday and I could not wait to play with it today. I should really be doing some housework on my early afternoon off from work but what fun is that?!? That will be waiting for me all weekend. I did do a few things first so the house doesn't look like a total disaster when the hubby gets home from work. I don't want him thinking I wasted all day making cards! ;) So I thought this was a cute new set in the catalog and got it, not totally sure if I would get a lot of use out of it. But I was determined to get a few things other than flower stamps! And I think I'm in love with this set. I had so much fun making this card that I think it was a good purchase. So normally I write out everything I do on my cards but sometimes that gets tiring writing everything out. I know, I'm being lazy. I think I am now just going to list all the products that I used and then if there is something I need to explain, I'll write that in the post. I may go back to the other way if this doesn't seem to work out so well. The one thing I will comment on is how I'm not really a fan of how the sentiment came out. I thought it would be ok in black but it seems to blend in too much. I was going to emboss it in white but then I was afraid that wouldn't look good either. And I don't think it would look good to cover it up so I'm just leaving it blended in a bit. You can still see it, just not as good as I would like. Enjoy! Have a great weekend!!
