I'm a...


Hey everyone!!  Guess who's a Sweet November Gal?!  Me!!!  YAY!!!

Yes, you read it right, I was honored to be asked by the amazingly talented Amy Young, to be the Sweet November gal for September!  This terrific line of gorgeous stamps is one of my favorites.  Amy has a style unlike anyone else and when she creates something it's whimsical and beautiful.  I think I've told her a few times how much her images can bring life to any fairy tale story.  Especially the ones she creates.  I would so purchase if she decided to write a series dedicated to all the wonderful Sweet November stamps.  Wouldn't you?  hahaha.. Wishful thinking on my part but a girl can dream right?!  hahaha!

I will be joining not only Amy, but also the talented Nancy Thomas and my FFC buddy, Rachel Schneider, for three fun days of previews for the new line of stamps set to be released in the All That Scraps store on September 8th.  You all know how generous Amy is, so be sure to stop by and comment on all of our blogs for some fun candies starting tomorrow, September 1st.  You can find all the details on Amy's A Thousand Sheets of Paper blog. 

Before I take off, I made this card using a few of the cute Fairwees from the August release.  This was a fun one to make and I think it just shows how super sweet and cute this line is. 

Fairwees from L to R:  Emaline, Josie, Daphne & Piper
Used patterned paper from DCWV, The Garden Party matstack, to make the clouds, butterflies and grass.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.  I free hand cut the grass and used a white Sakura gel pen to create the fake stitches.  I don't know if you can tell, but I stickled their wings, definitely cuter IRL.

All righty my friends, time for me to get ready for work.  Mahalo for stopping by and remember stop by tomorrow, September 1st, for the first day of SN previews, more surprise news and if I have it ready my b-day candy give-a-way.  Enjoy your day!!  And remember, "Smiles are contagious!" :)
Hugs,
Lilo
