This is how I started out my stamping session today!  I knew I wanted to use the new First Class Friend, Mini Pennant and Fence Die-namics.


These are elements cut out of patterned paper and cardstock!  Aren't they purty?  LOL!  I also inked up one of the newest Pure Innocence images, Feeling Froggy.

I use a Cuttlebug to cut my die cuts and LOVE it!  I don't think I've used any of punches since the new steel dies have been released!  They are so easy to store and are much easier to use.

I Toad-ally Miss You:


When I started out I had an idea of how to use these dies.  I don't normally think outside the box, but the moment I saw the First Class Friend die, I thought it would make a cute window!   When I set out all of my dies, I thought the mini banner could be made into curtains or a valance.  I used two of the banners as a valance and I used the post as the curtain rod!   I added a couple dew drops as the finials!  I don't normally pat myself on the back in the creativity department, but I'm feelin' a little bit creative today!  HA!

The little sentiment banner thingie was a complete mistake coverer (a word?).  I had originally wanted to put brads there, but I poked the holes wrong and it was suddenly a mess!  LOL!  I decided to cut a piece of patterned paper using the First Place Award Ribbon die to cover it up.....and alas, it became the backdrop for my sentiment! 




Well, that's all from me today!  Thanks for stopping by!
