Time to Celebrate!



{Second post for today. Scroll down to the previous post or CLICK HERE to see if you're the winner of a $200 JustRite Shopping Spree! I had one of the hidden blog candy giveaways from Tuesday's mega blog hop - FUN}

I've been playing with some delicious new Stamper's Dream goodies and loving every minute. To start with, there's the new Queen Bee line by Pink Paislee, which as my #1 favorite from CHA. Next is the gorgeous Prima Pewter Say It In Crystals & Roses Swirl. GASP! You don't need to do much else when you have one of these! I've used the complete swirl on today's card, but you can also cut it apart into smaller pieces for more mileage. Remember the cuckoo clock card from last weekend? It's hard to believe, but today's card actually uses that very same set - Cuckoo by Hero Arts. The two cards are just crazy different. This time, I was inspired by the awesome sentiments in that set, most of which work well with or without the cuckoo clock imagery. This card uses the smaller clock face image and the sentiment "It's Time to Celebrate."



Thanks to Tosh's enabling, I recently picked up a pair of Martha Stewart Deco Shells corner and border punches at Michael's. Loving this punch! The accordian flower behind the clock was done with the Deco Shells border, as was the standard ivory border along the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
