Swirly Bird Rose…

Guess what came yesterday?  Do you believe Zoe slept through Mr. Brown delivering my preorder and I was in my studio fretting and fussing about why it hadn’t been delivered.  This has to be a first for her…

But come it did and really I didn’t know what to do first…I mean, look at the catalog, check all the DSP, check out all the stamp sets, stamp with the new In Colors…decisions, decisions…

So I pushed everything aside and made this adorable thank you card with new colors, stamps and framelits…


There are 24 stamps in this set!  Here’s a peek at the inside…


How sweet is that?  You can see three new In Colors… Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy.  The new die Swirly Scribbles Thinlets and 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon in Sweet Sugarplum.
