Hello there…

I’m excited to finally get around to creating with some Paper Smooches designs. Granted, I do not have the actual stamps yet.  *insert sad, pouty face*  My budget does not yet allow for such lovely items. BUT, Kim provides free digital images every month and I have been hording them.

YEP, I’m going to enter my first PS sparks challenge.
Wheeeee. I’m so excited.

The birdie and adorable sentiment are from PS. Total cuteness right???? I mainly used the colors and bling from the inspiration photo, but it has a graphic and yet shabby kind of feel. Weird combo, I think not. It seems to be my thing lately.

I’ll be back on Friday for Friends with Flair.

    this is fantastic, Lisa! I need to check out the digi (as much as I ♥ my real stamps)….my budget hasn’t allowed for any new PS stamps lately and they sure are CUTE! I think you nailed the inspiration!

    Teehee, I’ve been saving up the Paper Smooches digis, too! Plus I was lucky enough to ink up a couple of Emily L.’s stamps when we had a play date. 😛 I really love the design of this card, Lisa. The swirly lined bg paper works so well with the fun bird!
