New Paper - Yummy


I was able to do some paper shopping yesterday - it felt so good - of course - my addiction came to a head again - you know the 6 x 6 pad addiction - I think I came home with 5 more.  Oh well - the addiction could be something worse.  Shoes maybe or clothes.

This paper is from the collection by Simple Stories - Fabulous.  I thought this label would be perfect on a card for one of our Heroes to send home to a loved one.  The card is based on the weekly sketch as Stars and Stamps - Operation Write Home's card blog


Of course, I added more layers - as always.  But love the colors used.  I found the solid aqua at Tuesday Morning - it is in a package for $1.99 - it is American Crafts - this color is in so many collections now days that I know I will get lots of use out of it.

Enjoy your Sunday - are you tired from the time change.

I think we all have the same paper addiction, so you're not alone :)
I love this colorful beauty, especially the sentiment!

I love the layers! I tend To agree... Clothes or shoes would be much more expensive, and paper is a lot more fun. :) Now all I need is a walk-in craft room, instead of a closet! :) thanks for sharing, your card is lovely!

So pretty! Really like the card and use of the sentiment. It is hard to resist a pretty pad of paper. It matches, it calls your name.

Hi, Barb,

Yes, I too am addicted to 6 by 6 pads. Planning on sending an e-mail to my LSS asking if they can order a couple of the new Bo Bunny Liberty pads. :)

Great colors -- so bright and springy! And, the touch of black is perfect. TFS!!!
