playing . . . .

with a new stamp set from The Craft's Meow.  I was the lucky winner of Lisa's final blog hop for her company and am now the happy owner of some of her very nice stamps.  So sad that she had to close up shop.

Anyway, here is the card I made for a friend's birthday:



So simple and so easy, but so pretty, too!  This particular stamp set has stamps that can be used with the Spellbinders Labels Fourteen die and I like the shape of it very much. And, the embossed layer is a Spellbinders M-bossabilities folder called Elegance.  These have two designs to choose from - quite a nice feature.   I love this cornflower blue ink from Hero Arts and actually have cardstock that matches perfectly. 

Sending this card to the challenge at Seize the Birthday and also to Word Art Wednesday.

Can you believe Christmas will be here in 16 days?  Time truly does fly.  I hope you take things slowly during these last days leading up to the big day and enjoy each and every moment spent with family and loved ones. 

TFL!
