I knew as soon as my new "Chicken Wire and Compact Sentiments" stamp sets hit the hall floor (delivered by the mail carrier) yesterday morning from Waltzingmouse Stamps I would have to ink them up!
Plus - I have forgotten a February Birthday of a dear friend of mine who is a very talented artist and I need to send her a card and gift yesterday!!! You know when the panic sets in when you realise you have forgotten? That's the feeling in the pit of my stomach at the moment. Thankfully I have a couple of cards sets made, packaged and will send one of these to her.
I used my new Ranger ink (love this colour - Magenta Hue - available at Simon Says Stamp now!). I had some buttons already stitched onto the stamped cards and was looking for a home for them!. I soooo love raspberry fizz buttons and ribbon. I even love the name. I machine stitched the ribbon on to the card and decided to run stitching all around the button card (barely visible in photo above - you can click to enlarge!).
