PMS Blog Hop and Release Day

Hi everyone! Today is the day! The January release of new images and word art from Paper Makeup Stamps! If you have come here from Dawn's blog, you are on the right track. If not, please start at the PMS blog because I am the last stop on the hop and you won't want to miss all the fun that's happened before this stop!

I have a beautiful quote to share with you today from William Shakespeare. Who could write a prettier, romantic quote than ol' William?

I'm lovin' this card! The colors are just so pretty and feminine! I used Basic Grey's Two Scoops dp and barely banana. When was the last time you used that color? I also tried my hand at sewing again! I still had the yellow thread in the sewing machine, so I went with it! I still need a little practice, but I do like the technique. I used markers to color the stamp (another thing I haven't done in a long while!), and then while the paper was still in the die, I sponged some barely banana ink on it as well as around the white mat piece. I added the ribbon, button, and pearls and I was done! I started with this week's Taylored Expressions sketch.

Now if you've been following along, you should have been picking up some letters that will spell out a code you can use tonight at the store to get a discount on the entire January release. I have the last letter for you which is the letter "R".

We hope to see you at the release party tonight in the PMS forum. It begins at 8:00 pm CST. There will be prizes, chatter, and the announcement of the winner of the ENTIRE RELEASE! Go to the PMS blog to find out the details. Thanks for stopping in today! See you later tonight!
