FREE PREVIEW WEEK - Day 3 - MY TURN!

Good Morning, Stampers!


It is DAY 3 of the Create with Connie and Mary FREE PREVIEW WEEK and guess what???
It's MY turn to offer BLOG CANDY!! I am so looking forward to sharing my projects with you in the coming weeks. It really is going to be the best Collection to date!

I think my favorite item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure has got to be the Lotus Flower stamp set!
It doesn't matter what color scheme is used, they all look amazing! I've been especially hooked on this color combination: Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon and Island Indigo. Of course it has to be accompanied by some Chocolate Chip ink! The brown/blue combination is MY FAV!!!

The Lotus Blossom was a first pick for me. So many variations of colors and you can't go wrong with any of them. Thanks for sharing the idea with the background stamp. Have a super week.
