For my first project, I created a Mother's Day card for my Mom using the new Flapper Doodles - Hold me Tight stamp set. Is this just not the most adorable image of a mommy and her little girl? I'm an only daughter and have the best relationship with my Mom -- she's my best friend. I'm reminded of how "attached" I was to my Mom as a little girl when I look at this image. I {heart} this stamp set. :-) Do you spy the new High Tea Doily behind my image? Oooooh-eeeeem-geeeeee guys -- I am in LOVE with this new Die-namics and what tickles me even more is that it comes with an AWESOME pop-out tool to punch out all those little intricate pieces.

For my second project, I created this Shabby Chic card using the new Own Your Story and Typewriter Alphabet stamp sets. I just love the Four Point frame Die-namics that coordinates with the Own Your Story stamp set - way cool! The Typewriter stamp set is so FUN and versatile -- create your own sentiments! I created burlap & canvas layered flowers using the new Pretty Posies Die-namics... I love the vintage-shabby feel it adds to the card.
