Never More than a Thought Away

I have a story that shows just how crazy-obsessed I can be with stamping. I was thinking about the latest Color Throwdown challenge (CTD266), trying to envision how I'd make the colors work together. One night, I popped up out of bed, and exclaimed "Bella Rose DSP!" It uses all 4 colors! (Well, I took a little creative liberty with every color apparently. Mine are: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip/Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette, and Riding Hood Red). It seems I can't even sleep without thinking about stamping!


I also used today's Mojo Monday layout (MOJO318) for this card. I love multi-tasking. :)


I'm also entering this card into the latest Penny Black Challenge - Anything Goes. There are a few things about this card that I don't like, but most likely, you didn't notice them, so I'll just forget it!

  3. So pretty! Did I ever tell you about the time (many years ago) that I went to bed with the hubs and he was getting all snuggly (wink!) and I just blurted out: "Do I have a Happy Anniversary stamp?" He rolled over and I went on thinking about about stamps until I fell asleep! ;)

  4. As it’s something I really don’t like doing for a whole comment will admit to this being a copy and paste one because I am unable to type properly at the moment, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to take a look at your lovely creation and thank you for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge.
