What's Freakin' NEW???

Why is it that no matter HOW much you LOVE all your crafty good things, you love it even MORE when you have NEW stamps??!!?? GIMME ALL THE STAMPS!! I NEED ALL THE PAPERS!!! OOOO-LAAA-LAAA FOR EMBELLISHMENTS!! Did you see what the Flower Bug herself did?? The ever-incredible LeeAnn Greff always makes BEAUTIFUL things!

I think the very first card I posted on this blog was a take on this card ... sorta ... I just remember that it had squares of different patterned papers on it. It's so much fun to mix and match lots of different patterns!!! I have been doing that with my clothes since I was a little girl (not always successfully, I might add!)! Don't be afraid of mixing colors and patterns ... sometimes it comes out SOOOO good it will surprise you!

Stamps: Abstract Impressions
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Garden Impressions DSP
Ink: Night of Navy, Petal Pink

This little froggy ... he's so cute and unassuming sitting there with his smirk on this little branch, isn't he?? I twisted the the colors of Nature's twine to add a little bit of fun (Blackberry Bliss and Crumb Cake). I think I have purchased every single stamp set with "jungle" creatures in it since I started collecting stamps waaaaay back when I started stamping about 15 years ago. I just canNOT resist!
