Busy Times

I have been busy getting ready for an upcoming Splitcoaststampers event, but I needed a little break from it all.... just to stamp for fun. I love this Lizzie Anne Designs Far East set, and decided to play with it again.

RAK from Kurtis Amundson

This pretty card and embossed panel is from the super talented, Kurtis Amundson. I sent him a few extra sheets of card stock, and look what I got!! I know...I'm really lucky!! Especially since I think he is going to be famous some day. Not that he isn't already, 'cause I think he is on almost everyone's blog roll, and at least a couple of design teams. You may check out his blog here, if you haven't already done so. Thanks for the awesome card and Cuttled panel, Kurtis!! You rock!!

It's a dental day for the kids, so I must get going. Thanks for your visit, and here's the recipe for my Far East card:

Stamps: Far East, Say it in Script (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Old Olive, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Scor-Pal, Scor Tape, Tearing Edge, Natural Hemp, Mini Me Primas, Vintage Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals

Loved your card although I have to say from the sentiment on it that Winter seems like it's lasting forever this year! LOL Your card is beautiful as always, Rose Ann! The card from Kurtis is awesome, too! How nice of him to send you a beautiful Thank You card.

Have a great day!
