Hello stampin friends! Today I found some time to stamp. Whoo hoo! Everyone got on the big yellow bus this morning. Whooo Hooo! I decided I was going to have a lovely day. I got my cup o' Joe (with pumpkin creamer.. yum) and went next door to visit my Grandma. It's SO nice having her next door... and she's SO happy in her new place. Nothing like seeing my Grandma happy to make my day. Her and her kitty are all settled in. My Mom and Dad helped get some last minute things done for her today.. tomorrow she is having a friend for lunch and Saturday she is having a little open house/house warming. I'm looking forward to it. I'm hoping some of my bananas will get brown so that I can bake up some banana bread. Doesn't that sound good? I'm craving banana bread. Maybe with some mini chocolate chips.
Oh, sorry... sidetracked. This set is called Tree-mendous Love (my friend Bev came up with that name... isn't she brilliant?). It has a cute giraffe too, but I love the tree. I sponged the tree part with this big round dauber I got from eP. I colored in the hearts a darker green, then added sparkle to the dots with my atyou Spica pens. I then covered the hearts with my Clear Sakura Glaze Pen.... they look and feel embossed. Have I told ya how much I LOVE those pens? Yah, I do. I also used the Spica pens on the birds chests and the heart flowers, but you can't really see that sparkle.
