I was inspired by fellow consultant Michelle Snyder, and also used the Make It From Your Heart, vol 2 how-to-book for one of the patterns...LOVE these "little" helpers!

The new stamp set I used is called “Beyond Awesome”.  Have you noticed this stamp set in the new SE2 mini-book?  What a FUN set – and so many ways to use it!! Take a look at the variety of sayings!!

I used 2 paper packs today….can you figure out which two they are? You got it…..Calypso & La Vie En Rose! Fun!! J

I wanted to create BRIGHT, Happy cards, and I love the colors of black, lagoon, cotton candy & pear combined together.

By adding some of our white Shimmer Trim, Calypso Sequins & Flamingo Dots….we had a finished card.  

Here’s a close up of the 2nd card….

I decided "last minute" to use our NEW Waterbrush & color some lagoon ink inside the word Awesome.  LOVE these new waterbrushes!!
