New beginnings

I must apologize, it's been a bit dusty and quiet around here the last week as I spent the long weekend at my Mum's.  Her internet is mediocre at best and her computer seems to have a hate/hate relationship with Blogger.  I managed to get my commenting done, but couldn't face fighting with it anymore!
I am back now, with a fresh new challenge at Fab N Funky - New Beginnings.  This could be a new baby, new stamp, new something - easy peasy!
This card was for my sister's birthday - I didn't post it right away so she wouldn't see it.  I used a new Strawberry Kisses stamp and some colourful MME paper to make a cheerful card.


I suspect you will be seeing quite a few cards coming in the next little while - you should see my haul of new stamps!  I normally spread my shopping out, but this past month has been the perfect storm of stamp acquisition!  My Mum bought me a couple of sets back from England, I had a gift coupon burning a hole in my pocket for my fave store and another store ordered me a bunch of Cat's Pajamas stamps.  (Oh and there's the Lily of the Valley stamps that are on the way, there was 10% off there too...)
No  more until at least next month for sure!

Some of my new stamping goodies!
