Celebrate the Journey Two-Fer!!!



Here's a My Favorite Things Two-fer-One featuring one of the newest stamp sets from the May release!! This set is called Goin' Places and I stamped up a couple of quick cards with it as samples for the Release Party last week!

For this first one I used a Basic Black regular sized card base and a piece of patterned paper from the Just Dreamy collection by My Mind's Eye. The image is coloured in with Copic markers and I paper pieced her dress with coordinating paper. The sentiment is stamped up the side and highlighted with Cool Shadow marker and I added some wide grosgrain ribbon and attached some tiny Primas with SU brads.



The second one is a white base and I used the same line of papers and paper pieced her dress again. This time I added a sheer blossom from Creative Impressions and attached it with another SU brad. Both very simple designs but both really cute!

Well, yesterday was a MOST interesting day for me! I had the day off from work and decided to take a drive to my favourite stamp store in Petrolia, The Town Scrapper!!! I went to see my pal Phebe and pick up some EZmount that she had put aside for me........well, that wasn't all I came home with!!! I got some Rileys and some Rakles and some more Magnolias!!! I picked up some paper and some Primas too!!! I can't wait to get some time to play with them! THEN we went over to Actor's to have some lunch with Ellen and when we got there, the waitress told us that Ellen wasn't going to make it for lunch because her daughter had just gone into labour!!!! How exciting!!!! I guess we can forgive her for not making lunch right??? And this is her first grandbaby too!!! Well, I got an email later on when I was back home and she had a little baby girl at 1:26pm!!! Wow, that was fast!!!! I saw her picture and she is adorable!!! I'm SO excited for her!! What a perfect Mother's Day weekend for Ellen and her daughter! Congratulations to them!!

Have a great day!!
