Love the stash...

Do you hoard things? Because, apparently I do, lots of things.  I purchased this stamp titled "Wedding Gown Circle" from Stamping Bella, I think the very day that Emily released it.  I nearly grabbed all the coordinating little circular images, but for once, I exercised *a little* restraint.

And then, this poor little sweet stamp sat there.  In line, in my generous "collection" of images.

But I knew I'd have occasion to need it.  And then the other day my mother called with a need for a bridal shower card. I was so excited, because I knew I had exactly the image I wanted.

Um, along with my very new most favorite paper collection.  Making Memories unveiled a monochromatic line of papers at CHA this summer in -- I think -- four different colors.  And, if you've been reading here a while, you'll know that I seriously ADORE monochromatic cards.  This palette is titled "Rouge" and is shades of sweet light pink and rose.  They're all lovely, and yikers, a set of coordinated ribbon to match.  Love-ly! (Can you hear me singing??)

However, now that I have the card finished, I hope the bride isn't offended that I made the dress very pale pink....  gasp!  The image is colored lightly with my copic markers, then hit with my glue pen and dazzling diamonds because, hey every bride needs some glitz (you should have seen my dress - fifteen (no lie) layers of tulle.  A total cinderella dress if you ever saw one. But hey, I'm a girly girl... you should know that by now.

Writing this from the comfort of the hospital where I'm awaiting the arrival of my new baby niece.  I might be scarce for a few days as I will be visiting with my sister, helping with cooking and probably one million loads of laundry, and um, that little birthday of mine to boot!

Have a fabulous weekend! I'll be back with the blog candy winner sometime Saturday evening!
I'm SO glad you all have come by to enter, be sure to say hi now and again okay... you lurkers!  Giggle.
