No Stamping Required!


Happy Saturday!

It's Februray, and that means it's Sale-A-Bration time at Stampin' Up!. I decided to showcase one of the SAB sets on this card. It's not a stamp set, but a set of rub-ons called Love & Happiness. There is no stamping on this card -- there's no ink at all! There are four sheets of rub-ons in the set -- the same images in four colors: black, brown, white, and olive. I used the olive and white images on this card. I added some felt flowers from Flower Fusion. In real life they are the same color as the olive cardstock and ribbon, but for some reason I could NOT get it to photograph correctly! UGH! The layout for the card is Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try. It's different than the layouts I typically use, and that's why I love it!

That's all I have for today. We're headed to the Freshman Regional Basketball Tournament to watch Kyle and his team play -- let's hope for a victory! Have a great day and a fantastic weekend -- thanks for visiting! :)
