I got my new Sweet Pea Scraps kit today and I'm so excited to play with it! I love all the papers and embellishments - beautiful creams and reds and blacks, and some light blue thrown in, too! My favorite, though? GRUNGEBOARD!! I've seen this stuff online everywhere, but this is the first I've actually handled it. OH WOW. It feels like suede! And it's flexible! Here I thought it was just bumpy chipboard, but it is so NOT!
And let me just say how much I love that Kristin and Julie take care of me! =D Kristin said she made sure I got grungeboard with hearts and wings instead of skulls and crossbones since she knows I have a little girl. How sweet is that!! THANKS KRISTIN! I would have been happy with whatever since I just love their kits no matter what, but it is great to know how well they treat their customers!
My other fun thing from today is that I got my Cornish Heritage Farms "Beautiful" set in the mail! This is the one I won not too long ago from CPS. Yippeee! And it is just that.... BEAUTIFUL! I am going to have so much fun with this set. And get this... they are based in Chinook, MT! I didn't know they were a MT company!! That's awesome! Also, their unmounted stamps come backed with smart cushion. This smart cushion stuff is the coolest ever! It's not sticky to the touch, but it clings perfectly to an acrylic block. So all I had to do was trim the images and they're ready to use! I don't have to wait until I can tack them! WOOOHOO!
I probably won't have time to play today, as I need to clean up the last few handwash-only dishes from the shower, clean up from the Super Bowl party, and set up for the Mary Kay party I'm having here tonight. It's been party central here lately! But once I've got all that done, I will definitely be playing! (Though, I admit, my craft room is a complete mess and I should probably clean that up again before I do more playing - but I probably won't. I'll probably just play anyway.)
Well, I'm off to get dishes washed and laundry folded, but I'll be back tomorrow with a new challenge and the winner of the 5th week challenge!
