Yay, Spring is finally here! Although, I have to say, it doesn't quite feel like it. One of my favorite things to do on the first day of spring is to hit Rita's! It's a great place to get a water ice. Here in the Philly area that's what we call them. Other places call them italian ice. But, whatever the name, they are amazing. Anyway, Rita's opens today and gives out FREE ices. Last year, my girlfriend and I took the kids and stood in this line.The picture only shows about HALF of it. It stretched the length of the shopping center. DH thought we were insane. But it was worth the wait! We're definitely going again after school...
So, on to some fun stamping news. Have you gotten the newest Stamp It! Cards issue? Mine came the other day and it is AWESOME!! As you know, I'm trying to do more stamping and this issue really inspired me. Cath at the Moxie Fab blog, and the girls at the Paper Crafts blog have been celebrating stamping all week. Today at Moxie Fab, Cath is highlighting several stampers who were focused in the issue and I'm honored to be one of them. There are 10 amazing cards from some of my favorite stampers. Plus, they are having a HUGE giveaway!!!
So, head on over and leave a comment on the Moxie Fab World blog for a chance to win a copy of Stamp It!, some American Crafts stamps and embossing powder, as well as a potpourri of stamps from other great manufacturers. Also, don't forget to hit the Paper Crafts blog. You can leave a comment there and be entered in a drawing for a Copic Marker set worth $70!
Finally, I'll leave you with this card that uses one of my new favorite stamps sets. It's based on this week's CPS Sketch. I used Papertrey Ink's Simply Sationery set. I used it to create the background paper. And I used PTI's Recipe Box Labels for the frame and Heartfelt Messages for the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the First Day of Spring!!!
