We have a winner...Kathy!

I will probably not have the chance to stamp anything new today...insert very sad face I want to show you what the door prize was for my cook book stamp camp a couple of weeks ago. The lucky winnner, in my humble opinion, was Kathy F. I hope she enjoys the set...again I hated to part with it, they ar eall my little stampin' children. LOL! No seriously, I know it went to a good home and will love it just like I do. Oh my, Regina...get over it! I thought the set together was sooo cute and not to mention I used some new Cosmo Glitter. LOVE IT! The Cosmo Glitter is so fine and is like layering glittery satin on your projects. ummm....

Any way here it is:

Here are some closeups: Sorry this one is sideways...couldn't get it off or turned around for some reason....argh!!!

stamps: fun and fast notes
ink: black staz on, various for watercoloring
card stock: river rock, wild wasabi, blue bayou, whisper white, porcelin prints
accessories: aquapainter, colluzzle, round tab punch, scallop circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, 5 petal punch, boho blossom punch, three for you punch, gold brad, river rock double stitched ribbon, 2 way glue pen, cosmo glitter. white gel pen I used the punches on this set! I really do love having a wealth of makes layering a breeze! I couldn't imagine not having them!

Are you still wondering which came first - the cake or the card? Well...I guess I will let the cat out of the bag. it was the.................................CAKE! When I finished decorating the cake...I was like...this would make a nice card. My wheels started to spin....smoke started pouring out of my ears....What did I have that I could use to duplicate that cake?????? I originally thought Roses in Winter, another retired set. I made my card front and thoguth ...that will not work. Rpses in Winter roses are too big for this card...with all of the masking I had in mind. Picture starring at my stamp shelf with a very heavy heart...I had an idea and no way to execute it! And then, like a spotlight on an object in a dark retired Level 3 Hostess set - Flowers for a Friend. Imagine the "ba-bing" being played with an organ inthe background. It was perfect, the roses were the right proportion for what I had in mind.

Well...I sure have a lot to say considering I didn't even get to stamp today....remember to insert very sad face....

Happy stampin' to all of you!
