TODAY'S Featured Set:



Words Cannot Express is a gorgeous "Thank You" sentiment set that I know I will reach for time and time again.  It contains ten sentiment stamps that fit the bill for any type of  "thank you" you can imagine, from the most simple and basic to the more specific.  And the font Julee chose for this set is wonderful!

I stamped the sentiment In Dark Chocolate ink onto a Spellbinders Labels 18 and sponged it with Tea Dye Distress Ink before removing it from the die.  It was layered on a larger Labels 18 cut from one of my favorite new lines, Odds and Ends Mini Deck by Cosmo Cricket.  I layered a few of the different patterns from the deck.  Some machine stitching, a big red satin bow and a gem flourish finish the card!

Well, that's all from me today!  I hope you've been enjoying the peeks so far!

Thanks for stopping by!
