A New Look 77

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, July 11, 2010 @ 3:56 AM | , ,

Hi There! My hubby has been very busy giving Cupcake's Creations a new look - What do you think? While he was busy working on technical stuff, I was busy creating :)
I had happy mail when I returned from vacation. You see, my new Waltzingmouse Stamps Rescue Remedies set had arrived before me. Yipeee Skipeee! A perfect fit for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge.

Up close, you can see how well a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S4-190 Labels Four die template fits around this image - like I have said before - a match made in my stamping Heaven :)
I made a tissue flower embellishment topped off with a hand crocheted fleurette made by my sweet sister Tina :) I fancied up a stick pin with a few beads remaining in my bead collection from days gone by when I used to "bead" with my sweet daughter Angie who is now 20 years old & foot loose & fancy free. sigh.....

That's all for today - off to bed - it is after 4 am! My hubby & I are terribly jet lagged & our sleeping schedules are totally messed up! Thanks for looking - hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps:
Waltzingmouse Stamps Rescue Remedies
Paper: My Mind's Eye, PTI
Ink: Memento, Ranger
Other: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S4-190 Labels Four, S4-191 Dahlia, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilites™ Petite, W-001 The Wizard™, PTI ribbon, beads from stash
