Sometimes it just plain hurts when I have a stamp set and I don't use it right away. It's like you are waiting for just the right moment to break it out. A moment when you know it will shine. This is the moment for one such stamp set:

please pardon the surroundings, it was late and the staging was not as important as the light! (and I still couldn't get the pink to photograph just right. It looks neon/saturated in the pic)

Here is a pic of the card in natural light...had to fix it. It's one of those things that was going to keep bugging me!

This card uses the HAPPY TOGETHER stamp set from Stampin Up! Aren't the birdies so adorable?

The photo used to inspire my card is from the Play Date Cafe:

I really enjoy the pictures the experts use to get me motivated to create! I used my beloved bakers twine in honor of their wonderful sponsor THE TWINERY. I adore my bakers twine! 

See you LATER!
