Yarr a Gem


 Good morning!  It's a big day here at Stacey's Stamping Stage!  LOTS OF FABULOUS NEWS coming later this morning, so check back at 8:00 AM CDT!

The Alley Way Stamps just released three new fabulous stamp sets and a fun mini stamp set that you must check out!  On my card today, I used one of the new sets called Black Beard's Loot...love the cute, yes cute, skulls and fun sentiment!  Who knew skulls could be so adorable?!

The Unscripted Sketch Challenge #217 was the basic layout of my card, while the color scheme came from Color Throwdown #248!


The Tic Tac Toe Challenge, PP152, over at The Paper Players is fun this week...my card has Blue, Bling, and Friendship!


My Birthday Linky Party starts TODAY at 8:00 AM CDT!  Yippee!  Hope you'll join in on the fun!



 The paper I used on my card is from the Authentique Essentials Collection...gorgeous colors and patterns!  Notice the twine?!...Trendy Twine was super generous and gave all of us TAWS girls some to play with this month!  This darling blue, white, and pink one is called Bubblegum Taffy...go check out all of the pretty twine colors they have at the Trendy Twine store, Annie's Paper Boutique!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
