Hi Chickies!

CFC11 - Sweets & Treats
I had a blast with this challenge, mostly because it gave me a chance to play with some delicious new W Plus 9 stamps and dies that just happened to show up in my mail box a few weeks ago.  How convenient, right?!!  I’ve listed the products I used to create this week’s project below.
STAMPS:  W PLUS 9 (Pile It On)
INK:  A MUSE STUDIO (Toffee Pigment Ink), FRESH INK (Mango, Fuschia, Pink Lemonade and Chocolate Pigment Ink)
PAPER:  PAPERTREY INK (Raspberry Fizz CS), NEENAH CLASSIC CREST (Ultra Smooth Solar White CS)
ACCESSORIES:  W PLUS 9 (Pile It On Designer Dies), PAPERTREY INK (Sunshine Impression Plate and Summer Sunrise Polka Dot Satin Ribbon), SAKURA (Quickie Glue Pen), STAMPIN’ UP! (Stampin’ Dimensionals and Dazzling Diamonds), SPELLBINDERS (Classic and Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities)

That’s it for me today, kids!  I cannot wait to see what you all come up with for this week’s CAS-ual Fridays Challenge – I hope you have as much fun with it as I did!!  Thanks so much for stopping by – your kind words and comments keep a perma-smile on my face!  Have a great day!!
