You're Never More Than a Thought Away



This organic color combination and inspiration photo led me straight to some NEW Stampin' Up! goodies that I received earlier this week! I used the Growing Green stamp set along with the coordinating Woodland Walk designer series paper...so fresh and earthy...I love it! Oh, and my favorite new product I used here is the Distressing Essentials. It comes with 4 dye-ink spots, a flat stamp, files, and sanding tool...it's perfect for that distressed/vintage/aged look that you've been seeing all over blog-land!



I'm heading for Salt Lake City on Tuesday for Stampin' Up! Convention! My mother and daughter are traveling with me this time...a fun girls' trip! The guys, my hubby and sons, will be showing pigs at our local county fair while we're away, so I'm leaving this card for them. I will miss them and several kodak moments, I'm sure!



Stamps: Growing Green, Whimsical Words
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake, Whisper White CS, Woodland Walk DSP
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake
Other: Top Note, Big Shot, Certainly Celery 5/8" Grosgrain, Cutter Kit, Distressing Essentials
