Aloha, Sweet Friend!

I got some new MFT goodies in the mail yesterday (SUPER FAST too if I might add...release order shipped on Wed and rec'd Friday before lunch!) and couldn't wait to start playing with everything! I even played in this week's Wednesday Stamp Club sketch!

Among my new haul, I got this new set called Tropical Sensations! Isn't it fabulous? I love the big bold flowers and layering pieces. Of course I got the matching dies because I'm a junkie, ha! I already had the instaframe die which I ADORE! The sentiment on the bottom of the card is from Lisa's new birthday set, Birthday Greetings

And I finished off the inside because I plan on mailing this out soon! I had to get these birthday dies,  they're big, bold, and awesome! I love dies/stamps that can really take center stage. They're such a great size for bday cards!

Once I was finished with this card, and couldn't find my desk for the mess I made, I just stamped a couple of the flowers on a pink card base I had just laying around, and the next thing I know, I have another card :-)

This has to be the FLATTEST card I have *ever* made, lol! You know how I like my layers and "stuff"! BUT, this card didn't need anything else after I'd gotten this far! I did add some little rhinestones to the centers of the smaller pink flowers, and had to get at least SOME sewing in on this one;) Some of the ink didn't transfer all the way when I stamped these flowers, but that's because of my desk, not the stamps. And after I noticed this, I kind of like it, ha! They look distressed, nothing wrong with that in my book:) It also kind of adds dimension and depth. See, I did it on purpose *wink*

The stamps I used on this one are from Tropical Sensations again, and the the "miss you like crazy" is from Bold Statements. I am also crazy about this new die I picked up, Speech Bubble Frame. How fun is that??? You can use the cut out, or you can use the negative like I did here. Super fun die:)

And that's it for me! Hope you have a great weekend, I plan on staying in the stamp room:) Thanks for stopping by today!
