Still sickly around here. Thank y'all for your comments and emails wishing me well! I did go to the dr yesterday so have some meds now...hopefully things will turn around soon.

Got my monogram stamp thingy in the mail last week! It comes with 4 circle borders, a large alpha and a set of small alphas so you can make all kinds of monogram combos!
Go check out Emily Giovanni's post about it! (There's a free shipping code in there!)
I've also just ordered a number set and this set! The new one coming will give me a wood mount (I'll be able to use it on any ink pad) and it'll all be interchangeable! Woo Hoo!!
...oh and to qualify for free shipping from flourishes, I need to get my total up so went with THIS, which I've been wanting for a very long time...

Today was SO FUN!
Just made these at a super fun A Muse class at my LSS ~ Rubber Stamp Fantasy.
Class was taught by the fabulous A Muse instructor: Michelle Clark

All stamps, paper, twinkles and ribbon are A Muse.
All images colored with Copics and Spicas.
The umbrellas have diamond glaze on them and we went over the raindrops with a clear spica. Notice the raindrop shaped twinkles on either side of the sentiment!

I bought these tins from Jamie forevah ago!! ...seriously, over a year! ;)
I finally got up the courage to go for it..... They intimidated me a bit, I had never used mod podge.
I copied Jamie's style, as she made one for me a while back! (Of course seeing how cute it was, that's what 'made' me have to make 'em myself!!)
Jamie and Mandy passed on their unused mod podge so I didn't even have to buy any myself...thanks gals!
