"Sweet" News from Crafty Secrets!

Hi, friends! I have to tell you about something neat that happened to me this week. Ok, remember that "toaster" card I made with the piece of toast popping out? I thought it was a cute idea (although I worried you all might think it was silly) so I posted it...this is it.
Well, the owner of Crafty Secrets/Clear Art Stamps, Sandy, liked it so much she emailed me to ask if she could recreate it making it more retro and offer it to her customers--I will get credit for the original creation and I got to choose a large stamp set from her store for FREE!!! Whoo hoo! And since her store is in Blaine, WA and I am in Auburn, WA, my free stamp set called Sweet Kids is already in my hands and I had to create a card using it last night. I made this square card for the Crafty Secrets SCS challenge this week, this is it. I used some ivory lace and satin trim to make it more vintage-like and added a soft pink button with a cream heart to embellish. Those letters beads came in handy too--I am always trying to use them and usually find myself at least 1 letter short of what I need spell, lol! This designer patterned paper is, again, from Kaiser Craft (Sorbet- Lime Fizz) and I luv it! Ok, off to find a card to case for this weeks Featured Stamper over at SCS! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Sunday! My wish is that you find time to do something you love today and are filled with joy! Hugs~
