in with the old (and new to boot!)

I was cleaning out my stamp area today (yes, it happens every blue moon or so) and I found some scraps of the OLD designer paper from Stampin' Up!, Spring Showers and I think I squealed with delight. I love this paper and I thought I was completely out of it - thank goodness I hoard things!! Mr. Brown delivered a brand spankin' new stamp set for me the other day, Thoughts & Prayers - it's funny because I didn't even know this was in the catalog until I saw it on other blogs! I love it! It's so simple and classy and it's a perfect sympathy set. The sketch comes from Sketch Challenge 220 over at Splitcoast Stampers and it's a great one - nice and easy, but it creates wonderful cards. I used my 1/8" circle punch to punch a hole to pop the ribbon through on the main image panel - love that trick to squeeze ribbon in.

I hope you are enjoying your day - thanks for taking the time to see me today!

recipe -
stamps: thoughts & prayers
ink: sahara sand, chocolate chip
paper: kraft, bashful blue, very vanilla cardstock, spring showers dsp
accessories: bashful blue grosgrain ribbon, rectangle/scallop nestabilities (spellbinders), 1/8" circle punch, stampin' dimensionals
