New Stuff and a Super-CAS Card and WINNERS!

Hee, hee! I got two large-for-me orders last week, one from Joann's and one from Ellen Hutson. Great service from both, I'm happy to report.

My hubs was excited about the map stamp!

Trying a couple new-to-me stamp companies, along
with my reliable old Hero Arts.

I've already been playing with all this goodness and wow! It's fun having a bunch of new stuff (especially considering my recent PTI order). I'm working my way through it all so I can put it away and integrate it into The Collection.

After yesterday's busier card, I decided to post a super-CAS card today. I just love these stamps from Papertrey's Birthday Bash Sentiments set.

The combination of bright color and black, plus the right justification of the two lines, has just the right amount of interest so the card needs nothing else at all.

*happy sigh*

  1. Love to see other stampers' goodies! Enjoy your new stamps and the HA mid-tone shadow inks.

    One question: do you experiment with less CAS cards for cards not posted on the blog? Just curious to see how you use all your new stamps. ;-)
    Besides the cards you post, are all of your cards CAS?

    1. Oops, I hit publish too soon. I forgot to delete the duplicate question at the end. ;-)

  2. Congratulations to the winners.
