I totally caved.  Yep, CAVED.
I told myself to be strong… that I don’t need more stamps.
But then, THIS adorable stamp company came along.
And… I lost the battle and happily so!  Hee hee.

I am excited to be using my OWN brand spankin’ new stamps from Paper Smooches for this SPARKS challenge.

I’m using Friendly Flowers and Sentiment Sampler.  The flower stamp reminded me of the tomato tops and then mixed in colors and patterned paper to match the inspiration photo.  Lots of masking and some fun different colors.  Almost has a fall feel to it.

This won’t be the last from me!
I’m addicted to PS stamps.

    Ha ha, so did I yesterday!! Just put my order in then, hope they arrive to me soon!!! Curious which ones you got! I ordered the sentiments like you and then Surf and Turf. Especially to make bday card for my Pim, with the pelikan on it! We saw sooo many in California and he looooved them so thought that would be fun. Love your card, fun flowers!!!
    Hugs, Wendy
