Card Set and a Reminder!

Happy Saturday!

I can't remember the last time I posted something creative on a Saturday. But I was so excited about this card set that I made the other day, I just had to share! Once again, I pulled out my new Stamps Happen stamps that I received from Since all three of these stamps had a coffee/tea theme, I really wanted to make a coordinating set of cards for my mom for Mother's Day (yeah, yeah, I know . . . a day late, and a dollar short - the story of my life!! LOL) Stamping with these stamps reminded me of how much I love red rubber stamps, and especially Stamps Happen red rubber. The quality is amazing!!

I also pulled out some of my favorite DP from Graphic 45. This stuff is so yummy and really good quality - I love just about every pattern they sell, and I pick it up whenever I see it at my LSS. Can you say hoarder?!! LOL

Each of the cards is 4" x 4", and the images are colored with my Copics. Once I finished the cards, I created this cute little box with a clear lid using my Papertrey Ink clear cardstock. That stuff rocks, I tell ya! I wrapped the whole thing up using this yummo-licious May Arts ribbon that I bought at my LSS the other day. Thought about buying 5 yds., only bought 3 yds., wish I had bought 7 yds. now! LOL This stuff just makes me happy!!

Well, aren't you all that and a bag of chips! This is a darling little gift set and you are right, that DP is amazing! Three sheets each, right? This makes me want to get out my own Stamps Happen stamps! Great job!
