make my day!

... at least, this sentiment MAKES me think of Clint Eastwood and probably will each time I use it!

The card was inspired by Beate's grid technique tutorial posted at splitcoaststampers.com, and I'm using it to thank someone for a Mother's Day gift. I used the scoring blade and Fiskar's cutter to make the grid, and the Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots embossing folder to make the background, matting everything on either either SU's Whisper White or Pomegranate card stock. The sentiment's from Inkadinkadoo's Round Frames stamp set. The bling's provided from Amuse Artstamps' mini dot creative candy twinkle stickers at each of the grid's intersections ... alternating two colors - outer rim in light pink, next rim in dark pink, etc. And it's hard to tell from the pic but the white circle with sentiment is embossed using Cuttlebug's Decorative Circles embossing plates. Well, KAZ will be able to see 'em!

Simple yet elegant!

Do you use the little Cuttlebug that YOU TALKED ME INTO ORDERING? LMAO I just asked my husband "WHAT do you think it's going to take to get me back into stamping!?"

I assume you have a stamping room or an area where you can set yourself free? I wish I did. When I stamp, after going for a year without company dropping in, THAT is exactly when someone stops in for a visit. They see me covered in glitter and the house looking like a dementia bomb went off. Therefore I'm not too hep about dragging out the supplies.
