Happy Thoughts...

One of the benefits of being a TAC Angel, is that we can sometimes get our hands on new stamp sets before anyone else {insert halo held up by horns here} :) Don't you just LOVE new catalogue time?!!

Stamps: Happy Thoughts, Sunday Afternoon (both coming soon!)
Paper: Lilly Anna, Amberly Grace, and Ivory UltraSmooth cardstocks, Mulberry Meadow cardstock (retired)
Ink: Lavender Sachet & Noir Palettes, VersaMark
Other: Prismacolors w/ mineral oil, Icicle Stickles, Audrey Embellishment Jar, Lemonade Blossoms & Buttons, White Scrapper's Floss, foam tape, Cutterbee Bug piercing tool, Scor-Pal

I stamped the flower line borders first in VersaMark, and then slightly off-image in Lavender Sachet... this gives a very subtle shadow.

I used my CB tool with my Scor-Pal for a quick & easy straight line of piercing. You can also run the tool along the edge of a ruler if you don't have the SP, but then again, you really SHOULD have the Scor-Pal... it has all kinds of uses :)

And don't forget! You've only got until Friday the 26th to place an order for the current catalogue! I'll already be at Seminar at that time, so you can always use my online shopping site!

What do you think?
