Clean & Simple FTL #51: hi




Happy Thursday! Goodness, I felt like I haven't talked to y'all forever!! This summer is flying by so fast, I can't bear to think of it! I've been running around like crazy...and reading...and I've hardly stamped!


Trying to get my mojo back, so I played with the Clean & Simple blog's FTL #51 and a color combination from SU Demonstrator website. I mounted some new stamps today, including this fabulous star from Seeing Stars, and can't wait to play with it more.


Do you see that "hi"?! It's made with the new SU Alphabet Simple Letters Bigz Die, I **heart** it bigtime!! I adhered the Ballet Blue cardstock to some plain chipboard, then ran it through the die. It looks so thick and yummy!


AND, what about that fabby woodgrain stamp?!! Yay! Thanks for listening to us SU! I'm pretty sure I'm going to wear that one out! lol!

Cool card! I agree with you those letters are fabulous. You're right summer is just flying by. I wish it would slow down a bit. The one thing that I do look forward to when summer break comes to and end is fall. It's my favorite season...I love everything about it. :)
