Card Crazy!

I've been having a great time getting Cards are 3 I've done for far
This card uses my new favourite set - Greeting Card Kids, as well as the Music Notes wheel, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake cardstock. It also uses the new Victorian lace trim.
These guys are so adorable. I love the Merry Crittermas stamp set almost as much as Greeting Card Kids. This card shows how great the clear stamps are. These are actually only 2 stamps, the racoons come as 1 stamp - I cut them apart, the clear block makes it really easy to set up great scenes like this one. This card uses Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip cardstock.
This is Circle Circus another great set. This uses Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Very Vanilla cardstocks, Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon and silver embossing powder.

New Order Bliss :D

I got home from work yesterday to find my order sitting at my front door! Someone must have taken pity on my UPS man and let him in the building. I'm so excited to play with all my new toys! I of course ripped into everything right away, I LOVE the clear stamps! They're amazing. Those things that look like DVD's in the picture....those are the clear stamps! Think about how much space I'm going to save! There's no mounting hassles (always my least favourite part of a new order) I've added 6 new punches to my inventory and look at that wonderful cardstock! I've got the whole long weekend off so expect to see some great new pictures posted in the next few days! Swaps are also starting to arrive from the Christmas card swap I'm hosting for other Canadian demos. Once I have them all and have sent them back I'll be posting a picture of them all here! It'll be a few weeks still but I don't want to spoil the surprise for all the swappers :)
