Bold & Bright!!

Hiya and Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was both relaxing and full of chores, LOL! I had a temper tantrum in my craft room on Sunday (this sometimes happens when there is too much clutter & not enuff organization--just ask hubby, lol)and ran out to the store to buy more organizers and baskets! It took me 4 hours but it looks soooooooooooo much better now & my mind feels better too! My supplies were getting out of control and I have 2 new vows:

1) to not buy anymore patterned paper cuz' I must have over 6,000 sheets of it (oh my)what was I thinking, eekkk!! (So cyber smack me if I do, ok)
2) I do not need anymore ribbon either except PTI's monthly releases of new colors, hee hee!

I really, really need to start using what I have before I buy anymore goodies ALTHOUGH I did go to Michaels and guess what they had? The brand, spankin' new EK Success punches (see them here) that I drooled over at CHA! What's so great about them, well there are lots of them(regular punches & borders), they are flat like a cell phone & can be stacked. Not to mention that they punch as smoothly as a stapler--LOVE THEM!! Well, Suzanne bought 6 punches & 3 borders---I couldn't help myself cuz' I knew if I waited that when I came back they'd be gone & we can't have that, oh no!!! I did have some coupons though, hee hee :o) Anywhoo, onto my card today & enuff about me & my issue, lol...

TODAY the "Enchanted Lily" stamps from Pink Cat Studio are available for purchase---yay! And today is the last sneak peek for ya too! I used the Lily Fairy stamp to make a spinner card which is always fun (she's on both sides of the spinner)! I colored with Copics and used my favorite Inkssentials blending tool to blend 2 colors (yellow & orange) around my image--love that tool. My papers are from the DCWV "Citrus" stack and I just loved the bold & bright images--up close its shiny & sparkly too! To make the flowers I used my Spellbinders Flower dies to make the flowers out of the matching cs--Love 'em! I think this is my favorite out of all the Lily cards I made :o) Whatcha' think?

Here is a look at the complete set---so many cutie-pop images & sentiments! If you lovee it and you want it, you can get it right HERE!

Hope ya have a great one!
