I am loving the new paper!


This new paper is scrumptious! I started with bordering blue as my base and used my swirls folder on the bottom, sponging it with a little chocolate chip. The top is stamped with my floral bg in bordering blue. The chocolate chip layer is stamped with the dot from mixed bouquet in versamark and embossed with clear ep. The edges are distressed. The so saffron layer is stitched around the edges. I wanted you to see how pretty the paper was so I tried to leave lots uncovered! The whisper white layer is stamped in basic brown and water colored. I put stickles in the centers of the flowers. I used my cuttlebug stamp die and a chipboard coaster for the simply adorable tag. I covered the center with the back of the so saffron paper. For the brown piece, I just used chocolate chip craft ink.

So I have been tagged! Marie at From Combat Boots to Rubber Stamps (her blog is here: and Donna can be found here: I just found out that Andria Werner also tagged me! Her blog is here : Thanks ladies! I will be checking out your blogs! For the sake of time, I am going to pick 2.

I had to come over and visit after you left a comment on my blog. You have a great blog and must tell you the quote at the top totally was for me. My husband and I have been going through such a rough time at our church and there has been much "character building" going on in us. Oh the painfulness of it all!!
Thanks for tagging my blog. The link you have under my name leads to a different site. I am off to check that one out as well. Blessings!!
