Have a SCENT-SATIONAL Day!


Ahhh, the smell of Spring. I LOVE IT!! The weather is amazing today! It truly is a SCENT-sational day - perfect for me to come out of hiding and post something new on this here Happy Place blog of mine!

I was so excited last Thursday to open my mail and receive the Scrappy Moms stamp set I won on Scrappy Mel's blog called Furry Friends! It is SOOO cute!!! They are good quality stamps, too. Here is my first card using the set:

I cut the perfume bottle out of dark pink cardstock using the Cricut Paisley cartridge, embossed it with the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder, and blinged the "cap" with Golden Rod Stickles. Then after stamping "Have a Scent-sational day," I broke out my chalk that I haven't used in literally years and tried to make it look like a pink perfume aroma coming out with the sentiment. I'm not sure about the look of the "aroma," but it was a good thought for someone who has been creatively lacking lately. I also used the pretty ribbon that was tied around my Scrappy Mom's Furry Friends Stamp Set when it arrived. I love that Scrappy Moms added that extra touch, and then I was able to be "green" with this very pink ribbon by re-using it on this card! :)

Thanks again, Mel, for this awesome stamp set! I'm already enjoying it if you couldn't tell!! You and Tammy make fabulous stamps!!!!!

Happy almost Spring fellow crafters!
