Shades Of Pink -Sweet Stamps Challenge

 Second post today!!!
Welcome , Welcome, Welcome!
I am thrilled that you could pop in today to visit. I am proud to say I was chosen to be one of the newest members at Sweet Stamps Challenge Blog.
Have you checked out the Sweet Stamps on-line store? Let me tell you that you will love the products. I was fortunate enough to meet this family almost two years ago at a convention and have enjoyed their stamps since then.
All the deep etched stamps are cut to perfection, their dies are unbelievable let me tell you that. They even carry Marianne Designs CREATABLES Dies which will blow your mind.I haven't even talked about the Cheery Lynn dies yet.
Each week I will do my best to share products I think you might enjoy.

Can you tell I am excited? 
GOOD because I would love to have you join us this week for our first challenge .
Our first challenge is Shades Of Pink now anyone that knows me knows I LOVE PINK!
Just go to Sweet Stamps Blog and check out the rules and also all the talented ladies that make this new team so special.While your there we would love to have you become a follower so you don't miss a thing.
Oh Yea there is going to be a $20.00 gift certificate to the store for this weeks winner- wouldn't you love to have that?
 I made two versions of the same card because I couldn't decide what I liked- so which do you like?

Three Rose Garland 7055 is what I used for the corners- oh this is such a wonderful stamp to use anywhere. Fairy Lady 538 is another stamp that was just so adorable I knew I had to have it.
I also for the first time used Sweet Stamps SHADES dye Ink and I am so pleased with the quality and how well they worked with my coloring.

On the second card I used Bold Butterfly Large 627- and I know I will be using this several times.
I used pink glitter to edge the card and matted with a piece of Websters Pages paper.

I am entering the following challenges this week:
Incy Wincy Designs- Love
Magical Monday Challenge- magical character & Love
The Crafty Pad Challenge- Love is in the Air
Let's In It Up- Romance/Valentine(NO DIGIS)
