TSG Sneak Peek: Nature of Friendship & Holidays Galore


Well, as much as I really love this new There She Goes stamp set called "Nature of Friendship" (it's actually my favorite), I actually do not like my card at all! Anyway, I tried and am giving up. Both Nick and I are sick tonight and we need some serious together time so I am just posting it as is. I hope you all feel differently about it than me! Haha! As far as the Happy Birthday portion of my card, that sentiment is also from a soon to be releases mini set called "Holidays Galore!" The sketch that I used is from the new Stamps and Smiles blog. I used my gorgeous BasicGrey Porcelein dp as the background and some Kaiser Craft pearls. Anyway, if you want some amazing inspiration (which I am sorry I can't really provide) check out the rest of the dt blogs because I know they have showcased this gorgeous set better than I have! :) Make sure you leave a comment on all of their blogs again today for a chance to win a free stamp set! Once you have done that, stop by Jessica's blog and leave your name on Mr. Linky!

Jill Haddad said...

Don't feel bad about your card Steph. Everyone has cards they feel that way about. There are enough of us here that like it to make up for the fact that you don't! :)

Besides - I think you certainly get credit for even trying to make anything when you are sick.
