Well, so the fabulous Lawn Fawn Stamps sent me my prize for the Facebook "mini-challenge" that I participated in. I was so stinkin THRILLED when I opened that lil envelope and their HEEBIE JEEBIE Stamps were my prize!!!!!!!!!! I was just so excited!! I don't usually buy seasonal stamps - and believe me, it was very hard to resist them when they were released in August because they are SO CUTE!!! The georgeous handwriting for Happy Halloween, the cute lil web - and most of all the lil critters (2 bats and a spider)... sigh! Anyway, i really wanted them, but wanted to save my cash for other stamps that I'd use more often, like the 2 other releases at that time (Bannerific and Sophie's Sentiments) which I bought ;). Anywho, I am beyond thankful and thrilled!! I've also been under the weather got a lovely cold from my baby girl (1st time in school - yay!) so i wasn't able to play on Monday when I got them. Well, I played with them with my son, letting him stamp them in embossing ink and use all my pretty embossing powders (I heated them of course)...fun!
So, last night I broke out my fabulous new My Minds Eye "Blackbird" collection - I LOOOOOVE this paper, just picked it up from my LSS - and my Heebie Jeebie stamps and paper pieced my heart out!! I had this idea that it would be really cool to omit the "Happy" from the Happy halloween sentiment (Thank God for VersaMagic's little cats eyes!) and paper pieced the Happy onto my fave banner from the Bannerific Stamp Set with Harold's ABCs. I made 5 cards just sitting there chatting with my hubs. I really love how they came out! I popped up the cute lil bats for dimension and added some green/white Martha Stewart twine. So thankful to Kelly Marie and the awesome folks at Lawn Fawn for being so generous!! You guys totally rock!!
