Hello, New Friend!

I had so fun reading your comments and guessing how many subscriptions I currently have. Carolina got it right but she left the comment after the deadline (sorry, Carolina! ), other than that, no one had the right guess and Jacqueline...15?!? Oh my goodness... i wish! Being a single mom with 1 income, I can only afford to subscribe to Paper Crafts. So, I have Toni picked a number last night (she was actually in bed already and was not really happy that I'm asking her to pick a number...LOL!). But, she pick #15 and that's you Elena.


Elena said...
Lucky person who will be your friend! I subscribe to 3 magazines!I am not very good at guessing, but I will try, maybe 5?

You're the lucky person and my new friend, make sure to email me your mailing address ASAP :)

And, here's a card just made just for you. The sketch is by Lauren Meader of My Time..., that she posted couple of weeks ago. The main image is Spring Sprigs by Stampendous, this is the other stamp I purchased from Michael's that has ink stain and was able to purchase it for $2.00. And Holly, no I didn't stain it to get a discount...LOL!

Stamp: Spring Sprigs by Stampendous and Sentiment from Papertrey Ink

Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Patterned Paper is from Stampin' Up DSP Petals & Paisley

Ink: Jet Black StazOn Ink, Pink Pirouette and Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise re-inkers

Accessories: Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon, Crystal Stickles, Colluzle Circle template, Small Prima Flowers, Self-Adhesive rhinestones and Stamping Dimensional
