Mail Call

I received my Chomas Creations pen holder set in the mail a couple of days ago. I won this pen set during the Operation Owl Thank You blog hop that the K. Andrew Designs DT held in honor of Kristal.

Card Creations by C is having a challenge which involves making your own background paper so this was such a cool opportunity.

I placed a bunch of swirls in SCAL and then used my new pen tool to draw them on the paper. The cuts are from the Smiley Cards cart and I hid the faces so that I could use my Peachy Keen Happy New Year faces.
The sentiment is from K. Andrew Designs "Positive Thoughts" stamp set. This stamp set benefits the Storefront Shelter which is a homeless shelter for kids. Purchasing Kristal's stamps makes me feel so proud because I am a stamp-a-holic and I can't help myself from buying stamps so when I purchase K. Andrew Designs stamps I am also helping people that need it. Kristal is such an amazing woman. Generous, kind, inspirational, faithful are only a few words that describe this woman and she is a true friend to everyone.

Gloria, not sure how I didn't see this card before, but I LOVE it!! I really love these pens... I've struggled with thinking outside the box of how to use them, but you seemed to take to it like a duck to water!! :) Great job!! :)

My second reason for stopping by today is to invite you to enter a party decoration for our reunion challenge at the Decorate To Celebrate! Challenge Blog... There's only a few days left, and not many entries, so I was trying to think of my most creative friends that might want to take advantage of the opportunity!! :) I thought of YOU!! I hope you'll be able to join us for a chance to WIN...
